'Southern corn leaf blight' SCLB is a fungal disease of maize caused by the plant pathogen ' Bipolaris maydis ' also known as ' Cochliobolus heterostrophus ' in its teleomorph state. maydis': Race O, Race C, and Race T; SCLB symptoms vary depending on the infectious pathogen's race. Race T is infectious to corn plants with the Texas male sterile cytoplasm cms-T cytoplasm maize and this vulnerability was the cause of the United States SCLB epidemic of 1969-1970 1 Ullstrup, A. The primary host for Southern corn leaf blight is 'Zea mays', or maize, known as corn in the United States. Various types of corn with normal cytoplasm N, while vulnerable to Race O, have cytoplasmic resistance to the T-toxin of 'Bipolaris maydis' produced by Race T.

ARS Project: Compositional analysis and metabolic profiling on diverse maize lines and land races 423818 Plant Genetics Research : Research. Diverse Maize Research. Research Project: Compositional analysis and metabolic profiling on diverse maize lines and land races. Allelic diversity in the genes underlying seed composition has changed dramatically as a result of artificial selection during domestication and breeding, leading to the modern hybrids of today. In order to identify genes underlying kernel composition and to continue to improve kernel traits in maize, we must realize the full range of variation for these traits in maize. Many studies have been conducted to investigate small numbers of composition traits in narrow samples of maize germplasm. Here we propose to conduct a very thorough analysis of grain composition and metabolites in a set of hybrids representing the range of domesticated maize. The formal objective of this project is to investigate the natural variability of composition traits and...

Growth Stages of Sweet Corn. Plants. About Plants. Other Plants. Gardening Calendar. Plants. Planting & Growing Vegetables. Growth Stages of Sweet Corn. Growth Stages of Sweet Corn Comments. Overview Sweet corn goes through a very specific process of growth, beginning with vegetative growth, known as the 'V' stages, and completing with reproduction, referred to as the 'R' stages. Each stage is critical to the proper development of the plant and the formation of the corn itself; proper care during each stage can help optimize production. This will eventually grow into the stalk of the corn plant. V1-V n Vegetative Growth About a week after the coleoptile emerges, the root system continues its growth. The plant also begins to form the silks that will eventually emerge in the reproductive phase. VT Tassel Emergence In the VT stage, the male reproductive portion of the plant, the tassel, will emerge.

thumb|Bulk corn kernels thumb|Kernels on the cob Image:CSIRO ScienceImage 3195 Maize or corn.jpg. 'Corn kernels' are the seeds of maize. Though technically a grain, maize kernels are used in cooking as a vegetable or starch. One ear of corn contains roughly 800 kernels in 16 rows. One hundred bushels of corn can contain upwards of 7,280,000 kernels. Corn is a popular food throughout the world in many forms; it is used in breakfast cereals in the Western world as corn flakes and it is a grain that can be eaten raw off the cob, although it is usually preferred cooked. In the United States, for economic reasons such as government subsidies, corn is the basis of many products, in the form of high fructose corn syrup, in favor of cane sugar. thumb|left|Maize kernels The kernel of maize has a pericarp of the fruit fused with the seed coat referred to as " caryopsis ", typical of the grasses, and the entire kernel is often referred to as the " seed ".

Northern Leaf Blight Threatens Georgia Corn. Mar 19, 2010 Source: Farm Press. Corn+Soybean Digest. Soybean Diseases,. Advertisement. He says southern rust has been a concern for a number of years, especially in hybrids with little or no resistance. Northern corn leaf blight is the newest corn disease threat, according to Kemerait. Southern rust has been the No. 1 disease on Georgia corn until last year. Though many corn hybrids have good resistance to southern rust, a new race of the disease showed up in 2008 that successfully attacked the resistant hybrids. Last year, northern corn leaf blight overtook southern rust as the primary corn disease threat in Georgia. “I can almost guarantee that northern corn leaf blight will be a problem in 2010,” says Kemerait. “Corn prices and the yield potential of your crop will dete...

Publication request: Genomic predictability of interconnected bi-parental maize populations Plant, Soil and Nutrition Research : Research. Location: Plant, Soil and Nutrition Research. Title: Genomic predictability of interconnected bi-parental maize populations Authors. Genomic predictability of interconnected bi-parental maize populations. Interpretive Summary: In plant breeding populations there are often groups of individuals who are more closely to each other than they are to individuals outside their group. Prediction accuracies declined strongly if siblings shared only one parent half-sibs, but better results could be achieved if the TP contained half-sibs related through both instead of only one parent. Adding unrelated individuals to the TP resulted in negative or reduced predication accuracies. Knowing the predictability for progeny from individual crosses with such a TP represents a key element for implementing genomic prediction in plant breeding. populations of doubled haploid DH lines derived fr...

New research by DuPont Pioneer and university scientists into nitrogen N use by corn plants may change the way growers think about N management practices. “Because of the importance of N uptake prior to flowering, when yield potential is first set, corn growers have traditionally targeted N availability to this period," says Jason DeBruin, DuPont Pioneer research scientist. In fact, modern hybrids have very different patterns of N uptake compared to older hybrids – less of their total N supply is taken up early, and more is extracted during reproductive development. “Studies from 20121 and 20132 showed that new hybrids took up 29 percent and 40 percent more N post-flowering, respectively, than older hybrids," explains DeBruin. DuPont Pioneer will release EncircaSM Yield later this year to help growers more effectively manage critical crop pro...

Author Index /AnMtgsAbsts2009.52337 Doubled Haploids in Tropical Maize: Influence of Inducer, Donor, and Induction Environment On In Vivo Haploid Induction Rates. Reliable haploid induction rates HIR are of utmost importance when employing inducer genotypes for maize doubled haploid DH line development using the in vivo haploid induction technique.This work investigates the influence of the genetic constitution of inducers and donors as well as of the environmental conditions on HIR. In a first experiment, we compared HIR of three temperate inducer genotypes in subtropical and tropical environments in Mexico using a temperate liguleless tester as female parent. HIR were calculated by dividing the number of haploid plants/seeds by the total number of plants/seeds. Mean HIR was 14.9% 7.9-17.8% using the temperate liguleless donor, but was only 4.8% 0-19.7% using the tropical donors. Inducers and donors both had a significant influence on HIR.

If the corn plant has not pollinated, the quality of the corn silage will be reduced, but the plant may continue to store nutrients if green. Corn plants are firing drying from the roots up the stalk of the corn plant, Hutjens said. Hutjens said the following strategies can be considered: If corn plants have green active tissue, the plant may recover and produce more plant dry matter or yield per acre if rain arrives. If the corn plant has not pollinated, the quality of the corn silage will be reduced, but the plant may continue to store nutrients if green. Drought-stressed corn can be high in nitrates.

'mays' L. plants left in a field after harvest and consists of the residue : stalk ; the leaf, husk, and cob remaining in the field following the harvest of cereal grain. As well as the non-grain part of harvested corn, the stover can also contain other weeds and grasses. Use Composition and properties See also References. Corn stover, together with other lignocellulosic biomass, potentially amounts to 1.3 billion tons of raw materials over the next 50 years that could be used for fuel production. Corn stover is not harvested in all areas where corn is produced. Corn stover can be beneficial to some cattle producers because the “corn stover can provide a low cost feed source for mid-gestation beef cows.” In addition to the stalks, leaves, husks, and cobs remaining in the field, kernels of grain may also be left over from harvest. These left over kernels, along with the...

Publications Videos. The most common types of corn include flint, flour, dent, pop, sweet, and waxy. Endosperm distribution in five types of corn kernels. A seventh type of corn called pod or tunicate may also be characterized by flint, dent, flour, sweet, pop, or waxy endosperms. Dent corns with flinty sides and soft cores of starch that cause the end of the kernels to collapse or dent during drying fall between the flint and flour types. Although most dent corns produced in the United States have yellow endosperms, white dents are very popular in human food products because of the whiter starch. White dent corns often receive a premium price from the dry-milling industry since yields are somewhat less than those of the yellow dent corn hybrids. Supersweet varieties with this gene exhibit sucrose levels two to three times greater than standard sweet corn at harvest, and two days after harvest sucrose levels will still be relatively high.

*  .. Planting Sweet Corn
Planting Sweet Corn. 2/20/2010 · by. · in Corn, Cucumbers, Garden Review, VEGETABLES How to sucessfully plant and grow sweet corn. Depending on the cultivar, sweet corn needs 60-100 warm days to grow and requires 8 to 10 hours of full sun, good drainage and lots of room. Planting corn Once the soil warms up, plant seeds 1-2 inches deep, in groups or hills with 3-4 seeds in them. Space the hills about 1 1/2 ft apart. Seeds may also be sown in single rows of 9 inches apart, spacing 2 to 3 feet between rows, with a minimum of 4 rows to assure cross pollination. Corn is a heavy feeder and needs ample nutrients to produce, therefore, before planting, apply 10-10-10 fertilizer at the rate of 1 1/2 pounds per 100 square feet to the soil. When the corn gets about 1 1/2 feet tall, again side-dress with 10-10-10. When the plants start tasseling and silking, make sure it gets at least one inch of water per week. Do not allow wilting at this time as it will affect pollination and kernel development. Harvesting corn Harve...

By DAVE DEWITTE The Gazette CEDAR RAPIDS AP — When Iowa farmers were done harvesting this year’s drought-stunted 2012 corn crop this fall, many of them didn’t stop there. They returned to the fields to chop and rake the dried cornstalks into round bales that, at first glance, don’t look much different from hay bales. The material is known as corn stover. Experts say farmers began harvesting more of it in the last few years of rising hay and grain prices, and harvested a lot more of it this year as the 2012 drought drove hay prices to record levels. Corn stover is different from silage, a livestock feed typically made by chopping up green corn plants and ...

However, if you garden in a very sandy soil, it is best to add the potassium in stages with the nitrogen, too. one third at planting, one third when the corn is knee high, one third when corn starts to tassel. However, an addition of 2 to 4 inches of compost tilled into the soil before planting should help to prevent that problem. Sweet corn does not germinate well if soil temperatures are below 55 degrees 60 for the supersweet varieties and grows best at 75 to 85 degrees.

I have noticed that some of the ears have misshapen kernels with what appears to be a black growth. What is this and what should I do. -- Lisa Jenkins, Barrington It sounds like you are seeing corn smut, which is a fairly common disease on sweet corn. It is caused by a fungus that can infect various parts of the corn plant, including stalks, ears, leaves and tassels. When the fungus infects the developing kernels in an ear of corn, it can lead to the formation of galls that can grow quite large. These galls, sometimes 4 to 5 inches wide, typically have a silvery gray outer coating and look like super-sized corn kernels. Inside is a mass of black fungu...

Native to the Americas, corn Zea mays, the domesticated variety of the Zea grass family, originally was cultivated by Native Americans 8,000 to 10,000 years ago and is now used for human food and animal feed. View a high magnification image of corn root tissue. Corn plants have an erect, solid stem, rather than the hollow stem characteristic of most other grasses. Rather, they are characterized by scattered vascular bundles composed of xylem and phloem tissue, with each bundle surrounded by a bundle sheath. The corn plants vary widely in height, from 2 feet 61 centimeters to 18 feet 5.5 meters, depending on the variety. The plants have long narrow leaves that grow alternately along the length of the stalk. An early maturing hybrid may develop fewer leaves or progress to different stages at a faster rate than wild ...

This summer when locally grown sweet corn hits the market consumers won t be able to tell if the corn they re purchasing is a genetically engineered or traditional variety. Bt sweet corn is a genetically modified organism, or GMO, and is fundamentally different from the sweet corn that traditionally has been grown in Maine. Bt sweet corn seed is regulated as a pesticide.

I think one of the key things that any farmer needs to consider before making a decision on his crop -- whether to save it for harvest or to use it for livestock feed -- is to evaluate the yield potential. Because of these high prices, using corn for livestock feed could be a mistake. Assess the crop for yield potential to make a more informed decision, and if you do sell the silage, make sure you are being appropriately compensated for your corn, suggests Fanning. Fannning advises producers to check the nitrate levels and herbicide restrictions on the corn crop before cutting it for silage. Finally, Fanning says that with the high c...
*  Paramutation
thumb|200px|Paramutation was first observed by the effect it had on the color of corn kernels in maize plants. In epigenetic s, a 'paramutation' is an interaction between two allele s at a single locus, whereby one allele induces a heritable change in the other allele. The change may be in the pattern of DNA methylation, for example. The allele inducing the change is said to be paramutagenic, whilst the allele that has been epigenetically altered is termed paramutant or paramutated. A paramutant allele may have altered levels of gene expression, which may continue in offspring which inherit that allele, even though the paramutagenic allele may no longer be present. At 'r1' in maize, for example, the weaker expression state adopted by a paramutant allele can range from completely colorless to nearly fully colored kernels. History Mechanism Occurrence Notes References. Brink noticed that specific weakly expressed alleles of the 'red1' ' r1 ' locus in maize, which encodes a transcription factor that confers red ...

Soils were treated with either wheat straw or corn leaves, and inorganic nitrogen ammonia or nitrate. Ammonia and nitrate nitrogen were determined. Recovery data indicate that rapid immobilization took place when wheat straw was added in combination with either ammonia or nitrate nitrogen. Immobilization of added ammonia occurred when corn leaves were added with ammonia nitrogen. Reduction of nitrate was negligible in treatments where corn leaves plus nitrate nitrogen were added.

USDA: Corn Crop Larger Than Expected. InvestorPlaceInvestorPlace. USDA: Corn Crop Larger Than Expected by Christopher Freeburn. September 12, 2012 12:31 pm The lingering drought in the Midwest did not hurt this year s corn crop as much as feared. A report issued by the U.S. Department of Agriculture USDA on Wednesday forecast this year s corn harvest at 10.727 billion bushels. That was down from an earlier forecast of 10.779 billion bushels, but well above the 10.420 billion bushels that analysts had predicted, Bloomberg noted. The better-than-expected harvest estimate sent corn prices tumbling to their lowest levels in seven weeks. Corn prices had jumped 54% since June as the drought continued to roast corn belt states. According to the government, this year s harvest will still be 13% below 2011 s 12.358 billion-bushel yield and the lowest harvest in six years. With less corn available, feed prices for livestock producers like Tyson Foods NYSE:TSN and Smithfield Foods NYSE:SFD have risen. Low corn supplies ...

... Mon, 2012-08-06 02:51 How will you manage your corn crop this year. Click here for more drought management resources. dsc0071.jpg. I m counting my blessings, as we got a shot of rain last week. Even though it was hardly enough to get the ground wet, I will take any moisture we can get in this epic drought that is impacting 56% of the nation. Travel down most gravel roads around here and many parts of the nation, and you ll notice corn that s scorched from the sun, with hardly an ear in sight. Much of it is turning golden brown already, and I ve heard reports that some farmers are already combining, baling or cutting the corn for silage. I think one of the key things that any farmer needs to consider before making a decision on his crop -- whether to save it for harvest or to use it for livestock feed -- is to evaluate the yield potential. Because of these high prices, using corn for livestock feed could be a mistake. Assess the crop for yield potential to make a more informed decision, and if you do sell...

... News. Video. Video. Asia Video. Europe Video. CNBC U.S. CNBC Europe. CNBC World. Market Insider with Patti Domm Smallest Corn Crop in Six Years Better Than Worst Fears Jane Wells. 10:49 AM ET CNBC.com. The latest numbers from the USDA firm up the outlook for this year's corn crop, and the final numbers may not be as bad as some feared. Despite the worst drought in half a century, the government only slightly reduced total projected production for the year to 10.72 billion bushels. That would be a 13 percent drop from last year and the smallest crop since 2006. However, many analysts expected that number to drop to 10.3 billion, and many farmers feared the numbers could go even lower. Anticipated yield is now expected to average 122.8 bushels an acre, down from 123.4 bushels an acre estimated last month and way below the 166 bu/ac forecasted earlier this year.

File:Dried Maize Mote from Oaxaca.png|thumb|right|Dried uncooked form of hominy '' US Quarter and Mexican 1 peso coins pictured for size comparison. '''Hominy''' is a food which consists of dried maize kernels which have been treated with an alkali in a process called nixtamalization. Production Recipes See also References. To make hominy, field corn maize grain is dried, then treated by soaking and cooking the mature hard grain in a dilute solution of lye , slaked lime calcium hydroxide or wood ash , a process termed nixtamalization. The soaked maize is washed, and then ground into masa. As a result, while cornmeal made from untreated ground corn is unable by itself to form a dough with the addition of water, the chemical changes in masa allow dough formation, which is essential to the ability to fashion dough into tortillas. Also, soaking the corn in lime. The process of making hominy is also called nixtamalization and the ground product can be called masa nixtamalera. In Central American and Mexican cuisin...

... UW-Madison Home. News from UW-Madison. UW-Madison > News > Jumping gene enabled key st... Jumping gene enabled key step in corn domestication. Corn split off from its closest relative teosinte, a wild Mexican grass, about 10,000 years ago thanks to the breeding efforts of early Mexican farmers. Today it's hard to tell that the two plants were ever close kin: Corn plants stand tall, on a single sturdy stalk, and produce a handful of large, kernel-filled ears. 25 on the Nature Genetics website, a major change occurred about 23,000 years ago, when a small piece of DNA a jumping gene known as Hopscotch inserted itself into the control region of a teosinte gene that affects plant architecture. "Hopscotch cranked up the gene's expression, which helped the plant produce larger ears with more kernels, plus become less branchy, and so those early farmers picked plants with the Hopscotch to breed," says University of Wisconsin-Madison plant geneticist John Doebley, a corn evolution expert who led the team.

Department of Agriculture’s USDA August Cattle on Feed report, which indicates 15 percent more cattle were placed on grain rations in August 2006 compared with last August, the National Corn Growers Association NCGA emphasizes its producers are more than adequately meeting the demands of all markets — feed, food, fuel and exports. More than 2 million cattle were placed on grain rations in August, 15.4 percent more than August 2005. While this may have some negative impact on ranchers, Bill Chase, chairman of NCGA’s Production and Stewardship Action Team, said higher cattle placements and the feeder placements will increase the domestic demand for corn and distillers dried grains DDGs. “The feeder usage of the two ensures there will be sufficient corn to meet all domestic needs, even in a drought year.” Chase also noted corn growers are meeting deman...

These benefits make nixtamalization a crucial preliminary step for further processing of maize into food products, and the process is employed using both traditional and industrial methods, in the production of tortilla s and tortilla chip s but not corn chip s, tamale s, hominy and many other items.

Southern corn leaf blight: Southern corn leaf blight (SCLB) is a fungal disease of maize caused by the plant pathogen Bipolaris maydis (also known as Cochliobolus heterostrophus in its teleomorph state).Mucigel: Mucigel is a slimy substance that covers the root cap of the roots of plants. It is a highly hydrated polysaccharide, most likely a pectin, which is secreted from the outermost (epidermal) cells of the rootcap.Endodermis: The endodermis is the central, innermost layer of cortex in some land plants. It is made of compact living cells surrounded by an outer ring of endodermal cells that are impregnated with hydrophobic substances (Casparian Strip) to restrict apoplastic flow of water to the inside.Squamosa promoter binding protein: The SQUAMOSA promoter binding protein-like (SBP or SPL) family of transcription factors are defined by a plant-specific DNA-binding domain. The founding member of the family was identified based on its specific in vitro binding to the promoter of the snapdragon SQUAMOSA gene.Tomato seed oil: Tomato seed oil is a vegetable oil extracted from the seeds of tomatoes.Canna Leaf Roller: Cannas are largely free of pests, but in the USA plants sometimes fall victim the Canna Leaf Roller, which can actually be two different insects. Larva of the Brazilian skipper butterfly (Calpodes ethlius), also known as the Larger Canna Leaf Roller, cut the leaves and roll them over to live inside while pupating and eating the leaf.Zein: Zein is a class of prolamine protein found in maize (corn). It is usually manufactured as a powder from corn gluten meal.Coles PhillipsAuxin binding protein: In molecular biology, the auxin binding protein family is a family of proteins which bind auxin. They are located in the lumen of the endoplasmic reticulum (ER).Dikinase: Dikinases are a category of enzymes that catalyze the chemical reactionTriacetic acid lactonePlant perception (physiology): Plant perception is the ability of plants to sense and respond to the environment to adjust their morphology, physiology and phenotype accordingly. Other disciplines such as plant physiology, ecology and molecular biology are used to assess this ability.PollenPlant breeders' rights: Plant breeders' rights (PBR), also known as plant variety rights (PVR), are rights granted to the breeder of a new variety of plant that give the breeder exclusive control over the propagating material (including seed, cuttings, divisions, tissue culture) and harvested material (cut flowers, fruit, foliage) of a new variety for a number of years.Chance seedling: A chance seedling is a plant that is the product of unintentional breeding. It may be a genetically unique individual with desirable characteristics that is then intentionally bred.Placental cotyledon: In human development, the cotyledons are the approximately 15-25 separations of the decidua basalis of the placenta, separated by placental septa.Page 565 in: Each cotyledon consists of a main stem of a chorionic villus] as well as its branches and subbranches etc.Anthocyanin 5-O-glucosyltransferase: Anthocyanin 5-O-glucosyltransferase is an enzyme that forms anthocyanin 3,5-O-diglucoside from anthocyanin 3-O-glucoside.AmyloplastIndex of soil-related articles: This is an index of articles relating to soil.Protein primary structure: The primary structure of a peptide or protein is the linear sequence of its amino acid structural units, and partly comprises its overall biomolecular structure. By convention, the primary structure of a protein is reported starting from the amino-terminal (N) end to the carboxyl-terminal (C) end.Weedy rice: Weedy rice, also known as red rice, is a variety of rice (Oryza) that produces far fewer grains per plant than cultivated rice and is therefore considered a pest. The name "weedy rice" is used for all types and variations of rice which show some characteristic features of cultivated rice and grow as weeds in commercial rice fields.Inbreeding depression: Inbreeding depression is the reduced biological fitness in a given population as a result of inbreeding, or breeding of related individuals. Population biological fitness refers to its ability to survive and reproduce itself.Paddock: A paddock has two primary meanings in different parts of the English-speaking world. In Canada, the USA and UK, a paddock is a small enclosure used to keep horses.Branching order of bacterial phyla (Gupta, 2001): There are several models of the Branching order of bacterial phyla, one of these was proposed in 2001 by Gupta based on conserved indels or protein, termed "protein signatures", an alternative approach to molecular phylogeny. Some problematic exceptions and conflicts are present to these conserved indels, however, they are in agreement with several groupings of classes and phyla.Symmetry element: A symmetry element is a point of reference about which symmetry operations can take place. In particular, symmetry elements can be centers of inversion, axes of rotation and mirror planes.Phaseic acidStarch gelatinization: Starch gelatinization is a process of breaking down the intermolecular bonds of starch molecules in the presence of water and heat, allowing the hydrogen bonding sites (the hydroxyl hydrogen and oxygen) to engage more water. This irreversibly dissolves the starch granule in water.Humic acid: Humic acid is a principal component of humic substances, which are the major organic constituents of soil (humus), peat and coal. It is also a major organic constituent of many upland streams, dystrophic lakes, and ocean water.PomalidomideFujiyama (roller coaster)LeucoplastComposite transposon: A composite transposon is similar in function to simple transposons and Insertion Sequence (IS) elements in that it has protein coding DNA segments flanked by inverted, repeated sequences that can be recognized by transposase enzymes. A composite transposon, however, is flanked by two separate IS elements which may or may not be exact replicas.Herbicide: Herbicide(s), also commonly known as weedkillers, are pesticides used to control unwanted plants. Selective herbicides control specific weed species, while leaving the desired crop relatively unharmed.

(1/5543) Cloning and characterization of a maize cytochrome-b5 reductase with Fe3+-chelate reduction capability.

We previously purified an NADH-dependent Fe3+-chelate reductase (NFR) from maize roots with biochemical features of a cytochrome-b5 reductase (b5R) [Sparla, Bagnaresi, Scagliarini and Trost (1997) FEBS Lett. 414, 571-575]. We have now cloned a maize root cDNA that, on the basis of sequence information, calculated parameters and functional assay, codes for NFR. Maize NFR has 66% and 65% similarity to mammal and yeast b5R respectively. It has a deduced molecular mass of 31.17 kDa and a pI of 8.53. An uncharged region is observed at its N-terminus but no myristoylation consensus site is present. Taken together, these results, coupled with previous biochemical evidence, prove that NFR belongs to the b5R class and document b5R from a plant at the molecular level for the first time. We have also identified a putative Arabidopsis thaliana NFR gene. Its organization (nine exons) closely resembles mammalian b5Rs. Several NFR isoforms are expected to exist in maize. They are probably not produced by alternative translational mechanisms as occur in mammals, because of specific constraints observed in the maize NFR cDNA sequence. In contrast with yeast and mammals, tissue-specific and various subcellular localizations of maize b5R isoforms could result from differential expression of the various members of a multigene family. The first molecular characterization of a plant b5R indicates an overall remarkable evolutionary conservation for these versatile reductase systems. In addition, the well-characterized Fe3+-chelate reduction capabilities of NFR, in addition to known Fe3+-haemoglobin reduction roles for mammal b5R isoforms, suggest further and more generalized roles for the b5R class in endocellular iron reduction.  (+info)

(2/5543) Gibberellic acid stabilises microtubules in maize suspension cells to cold and stimulates acetylation of alpha-tubulin.

Gibberellic acid is known to stabilise microtubules in plant organs against depolymerisation. We have now devised a simplified cell system for studying this. Pretreatment of a maize cell suspension with gibberellic acid for just 3 h stabilised protoplast microtubules against depolymerisation on ice. In other eukaryotes, acetylation of alpha-tubulin is known to correlate with microtubule stabilisation but this is not established in plants. By isolating the polymeric tubulin fraction from maize cytoskeletons and immunoblotting with the antibody 6-11B-1, we have demonstrated that gibberellic acid stimulates the acetylation of alpha-tubulin. This is the first demonstrated link between microtubule stabilisation and tubulin acetylation in higher plants.  (+info)

(3/5543) Patterns of evolutionary rate variation among genes of the anthocyanin biosynthetic pathway.

The anthocyanin biosynthetic pathway is responsible for the production of anthocyanin pigments in plant tissues and shares a number of enzymes with other biochemical pathways. The six core structural genes of this pathway have been cloned and characterized in two taxonomically diverse plant species (maize and snapdragon). We have recently cloned these genes for a third species, the common morning glory, Ipomoea purpurea. This additional information provides an opportunity to examine patterns of evolution among genes within a single biochemical pathway. We report here that upstream genes in the anthocyanin pathway have evolved substantially more slowly than downstream genes and suggest that this difference in evolutionary rates may be explained by upstream genes being more constrained because they participate in several different biochemical pathways. In addition, regulatory genes associated with the anthocyanin pathway tend to evolve more rapidly than the structural genes they regulate, suggesting that adaptive evolution of flower color may be mediated more by regulatory than by structural genes. Finally, for individual anthocyanin genes, we found an absence of rate heterogeneity among three major angiosperm lineages. This rate constancy contrasts with an accelerated rate of evolution of three CHS-like genes in the Ipomoea lineage, indicating that these three genes have diverged without coordinated adjustment by other pathway genes.  (+info)

(4/5543) Inhibition of plant-pathogenic fungi by a corn trypsin inhibitor overexpressed in Escherichia coli.

The cDNA of a 14-kDa trypsin inhibitor (TI) from corn was subcloned into an Escherichia coli overexpression vector. The overexpressed TI was purified based on its insolubility in urea and then refolded into the active form in vitro. This recombinant TI inhibited both conidium germination and hyphal growth of all nine plant pathogenic fungi studied, including Aspergillus flavus, Aspergillus parasiticus, and Fusarium moniliforme. The calculated 50% inhibitory concentration of TI for conidium germination ranged from 70 to more than 300 microgram/ml, and that for fungal growth ranged from 33 to 124 microgram/ml depending on the fungal species. It also inhibited A. flavus and F. moniliforme simultaneously when they were tested together. The results suggest that the corn 14-kDa TI may function in host resistance against a variety of fungal pathogens of crops.  (+info)

(5/5543) Natural occurrence of the C series of fumonisins in moldy corn.

We analyzed 44 moldy corn samples for the B and C series of fumonisins by high-performance liquid chromatography. Of the 44 samples, 32 (73%) were contaminated with both the B and C series of fumonisins and 6 were contaminated with only the B series of fumonisins. The incidence of fumonisin C1 in moldy corn was 71%; the incidence was 11% for fumonisin C3 and 43% for fumonisin C4. Their mean levels ranged from 500 to 1,900 ng/g. This is the first report on the natural occurrence of the C series of fumonisins and fumonisin B4 in moldy corn.  (+info)

(6/5543) Relationship between ruminal starch degradation and the physical characteristics of corn grain.

The objectives of this study were to determine the range of variation in the rate and extent of in situ ruminal starch degradation of 14 corns differing in vitreousness and to predict ruminal starch degradability by physical characteristics of corn grains. This study was conducted with eight dent and six flint corns. Ruminal starch degradability was determined by an in situ technique on 3-mm ground grains. Physical characteristics of corn grain were measured: hardness by grinding energy and particle size distribution, apparent and true densities, and specific surface area. Ruminal DM and starch degradabilities averaged 50 and 55.1% and varied from 39.7 to 71.5% and from 40.6 to 77.6%, respectively. Ruminal starch degradability averaged 61.9 and 46.2% in dent and flint types, respectively. The proportion of coarse particles (61.9 vs. 69.6% for dent and flint, respectively), the apparent density (1.29 vs. 1.36 g/cm3 for dent and flint, respectively), and the specific surface area (.13 vs. .07 m2/g for dent and flint, respectively) varied with the vitreousness. Ruminal starch degradability could be predicted accurately by vitreousness (r2 = .89) or by the combination of apparent density and 1,000-grain weight (R2 = .91), a measurement faster than the vitreousness determination.  (+info)

(7/5543) Growth phase-dependent subcellular localization of nitric oxide synthase in maize cells.

A protein band of approximately 166 kDa was detected in the soluble fraction of root tips and young leaves of maize seedlings, based on Western blot analysis using antibodies raised against mouse macrophage nitric oxide synthase (NOS) and rabbit brain NOS. NOS activity was present in these soluble fractions, as determined by L-[U-14C]citrulline synthesis from L[U-14]arginine. Immunofluorescence showed that the maize NOS protein is present in the cytosol of cells in the division zone and is translocated into the nucleus in cells in the elongation zone of maize root tips. These results indicate the existence of a NOS enzyme in maize tissues, with the localization of this protein depending on the phase of cell growth.  (+info)

(8/5543) Characterization of maize (Zea mays L.) Wee1 and its activity in developing endosperm.

We report the characterization of a maize Wee1 homologue and its expression in developing endosperm. Using a 0.8-kb cDNA from an expressed sequence tag project, we isolated a 1.6-kb cDNA (ZmWee1), which encodes a protein of 403 aa with a calculated molecular size of 45.6 kDa. The deduced amino acid sequence shows 50% identity to the protein kinase domain of human Wee1. Overexpression of ZmWee1 in Schizosaccharomyces pombe inhibited cell division and caused the cells to enlarge significantly. Recombinant ZmWee1 obtained from Escherichia coli is able to inhibit the activity of p13(suc1)-adsorbed cyclin-dependent kinase from maize. ZmWee1 is encoded by a single gene at a locus on the long arm of chromosome 4. RNA gel blots showed the ZmWee1 transcript is about 2.4 kb in length and that its abundance reaches a maximum 15 days after pollination in endosperm tissue. High levels of expression of ZmWee1 at this stage of endosperm development imply that ZmWee1 plays a role in endoreduplication. Our results show that control of cyclin-dependent kinase activity by Wee1 is conserved among eukaryotes, from fungi to animals and plants.  (+info)

i think so

Is "Zea" a suitable name for a girl?

Zea comes from the scientific name of corn "Zea Mays." I like "Zea" because it literally means "grain." I'm not planning on having children anytime soon, but I would like to name a future baby girl "Zea." But, could it be used to name a person? What do you think?
It's pronounced "Zee-uh"

yeah, i think its a great name for a little girl x

Where can I get clothes similar to Jayma Mays character on Glee?

When does a woman ovulating how mays days after her firsty day of her period?

When does a woman oulating after ten days after her period or is 14 days after just make sure.I been ttc for 3 months and i wanted to know when do i ovulating?My first dasy of my period was October 20. So when do i ovulating? Help A.s.A.P

that's a bit backwards - the menstruation is a cleaning cycle that follows ovulation; typically about 14 days after ovulation.

If you have a regular 28 day cycle that would suggest that the next ovulation occurs around 14 days after the beginning of your menstruation. however not everyone's body follows the "typical" cycle. the Menstruation is  ovulation - so if you have an irregular cycle then there is no predicting the next ovulation date based on the dates of the last menstruation.
