|Pattern of genomic loci controlling morphological responses to UV-B radiation in maize (Zea mays L.)
||The sessile nature of plants determines that they tolerate rather than escape from
environmental changes. Therefore, studying plant responses to ultraviolet radiation (UV) is
important for understanding how plants respond to environmental challenge...
|Maize gene expression UV response patterns reveal coordinate regulation of many genes
||Understanding the mechanisms plants use for acclimation to ultraviolet radiation stress is key in predicting plant responses to our changing environment. Maize inbred line B73 plants were grown in sterilized vermiculite in a greenhouse under low fl...
|QTL analysis for genes conferring tolerance to drought stress and damage from UV-B radiation
||A mapping experiment has been carried out on the IMB94 recombinant inbred maize population seeking loci that confer tolerance to drought stress, UV-B stress, and the combination of both. The effects of drought, UV-B radiation, and the combination of ...
|Understanding genetic regulation of UV-B responses in Arabidopsis thaliana
||Light plays a major signaling role in plant growth and development, which
directly involves plant photoreceptors. UV-B radiation (280-320nm) is also an integral
component of sunlight that may cause damage to macromolecules or activate adaptive
