AtBTH1, a BTB domain-containing protein, influences sugar-responsive germination and seedling growth in Arabidopsis

Sugars function as signal molecules that regulate gene expression, growth, and development in plants, animals, and yeasts. As a contribution to understanding the molecular mechanisms of sugar responses, we identified and characterized an Arabidopsis thaliana BTB domain-containing protein of the H subfamily 1 (designated AtBTH1). The relative expression level of AtBTH1 was enhanced by exogenous .. Read More»

A novel COL7A1 mutation in a Korean patient with Hallopeau-Siemens recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa

    J. Park H. Chae M. Kim Y. Kim I.Y. Park J.C. Shin Y.M. Park

Dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa (DEB) is an inherited skin fragility disorder that presents various clinical manifestations. DEB is characterized by separation of sublamina densa tissue and abnormalities in the anchoring fibrils that result from mutations in COL7A1 and subsequent defects in type VII collagen. A 16-month-old boy was diagnosed with Hallopeau-Siemens recessive DEB on the basis of ty.. Read More»

Genetic analysis of seed-shattering genes in rice using an F3:4 population derived from an Oryza sativa x Oryza rufipogon cross

    S.-J. Kwon, J. Yu, Y.J. Park, J.-H. Son, N.-S. Kim and J.K. Lee

Seed shattering of wild plant species is thought to be an adaptive trait to facilitate seed dispersal. For rice breeding, seed shatter­ing is an important trait for improving breeding strategies, particularly when developing lines use interspecific hybrids and introgression of genes from wild species. We developed F3:4 recombinant inbred lines from an interspecific cross between Oryza sativ.. Read More»

Genetic differences between the wild and hatchery-produced populations of Korean short barbeled grunter (Hapalogenys nitens) determined with microsatellite markers

    H.S. An, H.W. Kang, H.S. Han, J.Y. Park, C.G. Hong, J. Park, J.I. Myeong and C.M. An

Short barbeled grunter, Hapalogenys nitens, is an economically important fishery resource. In Korea, this fish is in the early stage of domestication, and it has been regarded as the candidate marine fish species for prospective aquaculture diversification. This study presents a preliminary investigation of the future viability of sustainable fry production from short barbeled grunter. We used .. Read More»

Phylogenetic relationships of chrysanthemums in Korea based on novel SSR markers

    A.A. Khaing1, K.T. Moe1, W.J. Hong1, C.S. Park1, K.H. Yeon1, H.S. Park2, D.C. Kim2, B.J. Choi2, J.Y. Jung3, S.C. Chae4, K.M. Lee5 and Y.J. Park1,6

Chrysanthemums are well known for their esthetic and medicinal values. Characterization of chrysanthemums is vital for their conservation and management as well as for understanding their genetic relationships. We found 12 simple sequence repeat markers (SSRs) of 100 designed primers to be polymorphic. These novel SSR markers were used to evaluate 95 accessions of chrysanthemums (3 indigenous a..

Analysis of genetic diversity and trait correlations among Korean landrace rice (Oryza sativa L.)

    F.P. Li, Y.S. Lee, S.W. Kwon, G. Li and Y.J. Park

This study analyzed 394 Korean rice landrace accessions, including 93 waxy varieties, for polymorphisms using 29 simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers. In total, 381 alleles served as raw data for estimating the genetic diversity (GD) and population structure. The number of alleles per locus ranged from 3 to 44 (average = 13.14). The expected heterozygosity and polym.. Read More»

Development and characterization of 22 polymorphic microsatellite markers for the balloon flower Platycodon grandiflorum (Campanulaceae)

    J.Y. Song G.-A. Lee M.-S. Yoon K.-H. Ma Y.-M. Choi J.-R. Lee H.-J. Park M.-C. Lee

The balloon flower (Platycodon grandiflorum A. DC.) is a perennial flowering plant of the Campanulaceae family; it is the only member of the genus Platycodon. Information on the genetic diversity of balloon flower populations is of great importance for the conservation and germplasm utilization of this flowering plant. Twenty-two polymorphic microsatellite loci were developed and characterized wit.. Read More»

SCAR markers for discriminating species of two genera of medicinal plants, Liriope and Ophiopogon

    G. Li Y.-J. Park

The development of DNA markers that can closely discriminate between Liriope and Ophiopogon species is vital for efficient and accurate identification of these species, and to ensure the quality, safety, and efficacy of medicines made from these plants. We developed species-specific molecular markers for these two genera. Forty RAPD primers were tested to detect polymorphism; species-specific RAPD.. Read More»

Genetic diversity, population structure, and association mapping of agronomic traits in waxy and normal maize inbred lines

    K.J. Sa, J.Y. Park, S.H. Choi, B.W. Kim, K.J. Park and J.K. Lee

Understanding genetic diversity, population structure, and linkage disequilibrium is a prerequisite for the association mapping of complex traits in a target population. In this study, the genetic diversity and population structure of 40 waxy and 40 normal inbred maize lines were investigated using 10 morphological traits and 200 simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers. Based on a population struc.. Read More»

Alopecia areata (AA) is a common disease, which causes hair loss in humans. AA has a genetically complex inheritance. This study investigated the possible correlations between single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the promoter regions of the chemokine (C-X-C motif) ligand 1 (melanoma growth stimulating activity, alpha) (CXCL1) and chemokine (C-X-C motif) ligand 2 (CXCL2) genes and the devel..
