Jatropha curcas L.

Effects of phosphate-solubilizing bacteria, native microorganisms, and rock dust on Jatropha curcas L. growth

Microorganisms with the ability to release nutrients to the soil from insoluble sources may be useful for plant cultivation. We evaluated the growth-promoting effect on Jatropha curcas L. of phosphate-solubilizing bacteria (PSB) and the native microbiota in soil with or without rock dust. J. curcas L. is important for biodiesel production. The experiments were performed in a greenhouse under a random-statistical design with 14 replicates. The soil received increasing dosages of rock dust.

Genome-wide analysis of the GRAS gene family in physic nut (Jatropha curcas L.)

Z. Y. Wu, Wu, P. Z., Chen, Y. P., Li, M. R., Wu, G. J., and Jiang, H. W., Genome-wide analysis of the GRAS gene family in physic nut (Jatropha curcas L.), vol. 14, pp. 19211-19224, 2015.

GRAS proteins play vital roles in plant growth and development. Physic nut (Jatropha curcas L.) was found to have a total of 48 GRAS family members (JcGRAS), 15 more than those found in Arabidopsis. The JcGRAS genes were divided into 12 subfamilies or 15 ancient monophyletic lineages based on the phylogenetic analysis of GRAS proteins from both flowering and lower plants.
