  2. Guo M, Zhai Y, Lu J, Chai L, Chai W, Gong Z, et al. Characterization of CaHsp70-1, a pepper heat-shock protein gene in response to heat stress and some regulation exogenous substances in Capsicum annuum L. Int J Mol Sci. 2014;15:19741-59 pubmed publisher
    ..These results suggest that CaHsp70-1 as a member of cytosolic Hsp70 subgroup, may be involved in HS defense response via a signal transduction pathway contained Ca2+, H2O2 and Put. ..

    ..Taken together, these results suggest that CaCP is a senescence-associated gene, which is involved in developmental senescence and regulates salt- and osmotic-induced leaf senescence in pepper. ..
  4. Xiao H, Liu K, Li D, Arisha M, Chai W, Gong Z. Cloning and characterization of the pepper CaPAO gene for defense responses to salt-induced leaf senescence. BMC Biotechnol. 2015;15:100 pubmed publisher
    ..The expression of CaPAO gene was induced in natural senescence and various stresses. The CaPAO gene may be related to defense responses to various stresses and play an important role in salt-induced leaf senescence. ..
