Expression analysis of self-incompatibility-associated genes in non-heading Chinese cabbage

L. Wang, Wang, C., Ge, T. T., Wang, J. J., Liu, T. K., Hou, X. L., and Li, Y., Expression analysis of self-incompatibility-associated genes in non-heading Chinese cabbage, vol. 13, pp. 5025-5035, 2014.

In Brassicaceae, a self-incompatibility (SI) system mediates pollen-pistil interactions. Self-pollen could be recognized and rejected by incompatible pistils. Several components involved in the SI response have been determined, including S-locus receptor kinase (SRK), S-locus cysteine-rich protein/S-locus protein 11, and arm repeat-containing protein 1 (ARC1). However, the components involved in the SI system of Brassicaceae are not fully understood.

Effects of low-energy argon ion implantation on the dynamic organization of the actin cytoskeleton during maize pollen germination

F. Deng, Zhu, S. W., Wu, L. J., and Cheng, B. J., Effects of low-energy argon ion implantation on the dynamic organization of the actin cytoskeleton during maize pollen germination, vol. 9, pp. 785-796, 2010.

The relationship between pollen germination and the dynamic organization of the actin cytoskeleton during pollen germination is a central theme in plant reproductive biology research. Maize (Zea mays) pollen grains were implanted with 30 keV argon ion (Ar+) beams at doses ranging from 0.78 × 1015 to 13 × 1015 ions/cm2. The effects of low-energy ion implantation on pollen germination viability and the dynamic organization of the actin cytoskeleton during pollen germination were studied using confocal laser scanning microscopy.
