    ..We propose that induced expression of OsLOX2/5 may improve resistance to the rice blast disease. ..
  2. Zhao H, Ye X, Li Q. Characterization of plant polyadenylation complexes by using tandem affinity purification. Methods Mol Biol. 2015;1255:69-78 pubmed publisher
    ..We demonstrate that TAP is a potent protein complex isolating approach that can fulfill a downstream protein identification purpose based on mass spectrometry techniques. ..
  3. Lin S, Nie P, Ding S, Zheng L, Chen C, Feng R, et al. Quantitative Proteomic Analysis Provides Insights into Rice Defense Mechanisms against Magnaporthe oryzae. Int J Mol Sci. 2018;19: pubmed publisher
    ..The identified rice proteins and biological processes may represent a conserved rice innate immune machinery that is of great value for breeding broad-spectrum resistant rice in the future. ..
  4. Zhao H, Li Q. In vitro analysis of cleavage and polyadenylation in Arabidopsis. Methods Mol Biol. 2015;1255:79-89 pubmed publisher
    ..Here, we describe an in vitro pre-mRNA cleavage system that faithfully cleaves pre-mRNA substrate using Arabidopsis cell/tissue cultures. ..

    ..The latter finding suggests that multiple combinations between complementary sequences may facilitate the formation of the circular structure. Our results contribute to a better understanding of this novel class of plant circRNAs. ..

    ..Altogether, our results indicate that AR156 can induce SAR by the SA-signaling pathways in an NPR1-dependent manner and involves multiple PTI components. ..
  7. Niu D, Zhang X, Song X, Wang Z, Li Y, Qiao L, et al. Deep sequencing uncovers rice long siRNAs and its involvement in immunity against Rhizoctonia solani. Phytopathology. 2017;: pubmed publisher
    ..Moreover, lsiRNAs requires OsDCL4 for biogenesis and OsAGO18 for function. Therefore, our study indicate that rice lsiRNAs are a unique class of endogenous sRNAs produced in rice, which may participate in response against pathogens. ..
