Genetic diversity at Gli-1, Gli-2 and Glu-1 loci was investigated in 32 accessions of Chinese endemic wheat by using acid polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (APAGE) and sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS)-PAGE. There were 8 gliadin and 3 high-molecular-weight (HMW)-glutenin patterns in 14 Yunnan hulled wheat ( Triticum aestivum ssp. yunnanese King) accessions, 9 gliadin and 4 HMW-glutenin patterns in 9 Tibetan weedrace ( T. aestivum ssp. tibetanum Shao ) accessions, and 9 gliadin and 5 HMW-glutenin patterns in 9 Xinjiang rice wheat ( T. petropavlovskyi Udacz. et Migusch.) accessions. One accession (i.e. Daomai 2) carried new subunits 2.1+10.1 encoded by Glu-D1 . Among the three Chinese endemic wheat groups, a total of 10, 14 and 11 alleles at Gli-1 locus; 11, 14 and 12 alleles at Gli-2 locus; and 5, 6 and 8 alleles at Glu-1 locus were identified, respectively. Among Yunnan hulled wheat, Tibetan weedrace and Xinjiang rice wheat, the Nei's genetic variation indexes were 0.3798, 0.5625 and 0.5693, respectively. These results suggested that Tibetan weedrace and Xinjiang rice wheat had higher genetic diversity than Yunnan hulled wheat.

Comparison of Biolistic and Agrobacterium -mediated Transformation Methods on Transgene Copy Number and Rearrangement Frequency in Rice
Author: CHENG Zai-Quan, HUANG Xing-Qi, Ray WU
Journal of Integrative Plant Biology 2001 43(8): 826-833

Transferring foreign DNA into plant cells by biolistic and Agrobacterium -mediated methods may result in random integration of different copy numbers of the transgene, and different proportions of intact vs. rearranged copies of the transgene. This may, in turn, affect transgene expression levels. To test the above hypothesis, we first introduced the same plasmid, pAc1PG-CAM, into rice (BX)Oryza sativa L.) calli separately by the biolistic method and by the Agrobacterium -mediated method. To show whether different plasmids may affect the results, we also introduced pTOK233 by the Agrobacterium -mediated method and pJPM44 by the biolistic method. Transgene expression of R0 plants was monitored by histochemical analysis of GUS activity. Transgene copy number was determined by Southern blot analysis after digesting genomic DNA with an enzyme that has a unique cutting site within the input plasmid. The total genomic DNA was also digested by a two-cut enzyme (the cuts are located at two sides of a given transgene expression cassette), followed by Southern blotting analysis, for determining the number of intact transgene expression cassettes. Our data showed that Agrobacterium -mediated transformation resulted in lower transgene copy number (average between 2.1 and 2.3) in transgenic rice plants, compared with those plants obtained by the biolistic method (average between 4.2 and 5.6). The frequency of DNA rearrangement in expression cassettes is lower in transgenic rice plants obtained by the Agrobacterium -mediated method than those obtained by the biolistic method. The average rearrangement frequency is 0.07 to 0.106 for the Agrobacterium -mediated method, and 0.57 to 0.66 for the biolistic method. Our results suggest that it is better to compare the number of intact expression cassettes instead of the total copy number of the transgene in demonstrating their influence on the level of transgene expression. This is the first report on the frequency of expression cassette rearrangement in transgenic plants transformed with the same plasmid by two different transformation methods.

摘要:基因枪法和农杆菌介导法转化的外源DNA整合到植物染色体上是随机进行的,因此,它们可能会产生不同的转基因拷贝数,得到不同的基因表达盒完整率.这反过来会影响基因的表达.为证实这一假说,作者首先将同一质粒pAc1PG-CAM分别用基因枪法和农杆菌介导法转化到水稻(Oryza sativa L. cv. TNG67)愈伤组织.为了揭示不同质粒是否也出现类似结果,也用农杆菌介导法、基因枪法分别将pTOK233和pJPM44导入水稻愈伤组织,并获得一批转基因植株.R0代植株转基因表达的分析用GUS 组织化学染色法.用质粒上的单切点酶酶切基因组DNA后的Southern杂交结果确定转基因拷贝数.总DNA用双切点酶(分别位于表达盒两侧)酶切后的Southern杂交结果确定了完整转基因表达盒数目.结果表明,农杆菌介导转化法的转基因植株的转基因拷贝数相对少一些(平均为2.1和2.3),而基因枪法转化产生的转基因植株的转基因拷贝数相对多一些(平均为4.2和5.6).并且农杆菌介导转化法的转基因植株的基因表达盒DNA重排概率低于由基因枪法转化产生的转基因植株的基因表达盒DNA重排概率--农杆菌介导转化法的DNA重排概率为0.07和0.106;由基因枪法转化的DNA重排概率为0.57和0.66.研究还分析了基因表达情况与转基因的拷贝数或完整表达盒数之间的关系.GUS定量分析结果表明,为了准确揭示转基因的表达情况与转基因之间的关系,用完整基因表达盒数而不是转基因DNA拷贝数更准确.关于用不同转基因方法将同种质粒导入植物体分析基因表达盒DNA重排概率为首次报道.

Recent Advances in Study of Lignin Biosynthesis and Manipulation
Author: WEIJian-Hua and SONG Yan-Ru
Journal of Integrative Plant Biology 2001 43(8): 771-779

Lignin with important biological functions is the second abundant natural product, its content is only less than cellulose in plant. But the lignin must be extracted from the cellulose fraction in making paper pulp process leading energy-requiring, cost-increasing and pollution. Also, the lignin has negative effect on the digestibility of silage grass. So it is of considerable interest to reduce the lignin content in resource plants. The paper reviews the progress of lignin biosynthesis and regulation. The feasibility of reducing the lignin content and altering its composition for improving paper pulp production and decreasing pollution are discussed.

Anatomy, Histochemistry and Phytochemistry of Leaves inAloe vera var. chinensis
Author: SHEN Zong-Gen, Elena CHAUSER-VOLFSON, Yitzchak GUTTERMAN, HU Zheng-Hai
Journal of Integrative Plant Biology 2001 43(8): 780-787

A multidisciplinary approach—anatomy, histochemistry and phytochemistry—was used to investigate the leaf structure, the content and the storage location of barbaloin in the leaves of Aloe vera L. var. chinensis (Haw.) Berg. Xeromorphic characteristics including secondary thickened epidermal cell walls, thicker cuticle, ambiguous differentiation of spongy and palisade tissues in the chlorenchyma, and well-developed aquiferous tissue could be seen in the leaves. Several large parenchymatous cells were observed at the phloem pole of the first ring of vascular bundles. The secondary ring of vascular bundles in the leaf base and the stomata, which are surrounded by five cells, have some classification significance in this species. The density of vascular bundles, the content of barbaloin and the intensity of histochemical reaction differed among leaf numbers L1 (annual leaf), L2 (biennial leaf), L3 (triennial leaf) and L4 (quadrennial leaf), and in different parts of the leaf. These three factors were highest in the youngest leaf, L1, and top parts of all the leaves and lowest in the basal parts and the oldest leaf, L4. The density of vascular bundles had a positive correlation to the content of barbaloin. The histochemical results revealed that the small sheath cells that surrounded the bundles might be the location of barbaloin synthesis and the large parenchymatous cells beneath the sheath might be the storage places of this metabolite.

Vernalization, a Switch in Initiation of Flowering, Promotes Differentiation and Development of Spikelet in Winter Wheat
Author: LIANG Tie-Bing, YONG Wei-Dong, TAN Ke-Hui, XU Ji, CHONG Kang
Journal of Integrative Plant Biology 2001 43(8): 788-794

Vernalization is a decisive physiological process for heading, flowering and graining of biennial plants. Variable duration of low-temperature treatment has effects on lateral morphogenesis, such as spike initiation, floral development and graining rate in winter wheat ( Triticum aestivum L.). The investigation data showed that the duration of vernalization treatment was a decisive factor for the initiation of spike relevant to the time of initiation; the longer the duration at low temperature, the earlier the spike initiation in winter wheat. In the process of the spike differentiation, relatively lower temperature and longer differential time benefited for spike differentiation. Under laboratory condition, a low-temperature treatment for 45 d was optial for flower differentiation and graining in winter wheat. It is novelly recognized that vernalization treatment is essential for development of both spikes and spikelets, besides for promoting initiation of differentiation in winter wheat.

A Four-Level Theory on Energy Transfer of the Light-Harvesting Complex ¢ò in PS ¢ò in Higher Plants (in English)
Author: ZHANG Shu, HE Jun-Fang, WANG Shui-Cai, HOU Xun, LI Liang-Bi and KUANG Ting-Yun
Journal of Integrative Plant Biology 2001 43(8): 795-800

With reference to the recent achivements about the structure, spectra and kinetics of light-harvesting complex (LHCⅡ) in PSⅡ of higher plants, a four-level model was provided to simulate the energy transfer process from LHCⅡ to the reaction center. On the basis of this model, a set of rate equation was established. Analysis of its algebra solution led to a general picture of energy transfer process in LHCⅡ of higher plants and the strong interaction among pigment molecules in this process. Based on the spectra, kinetics and biological structural data providing some information of energy transfer path and energy dissipation mechanism, it has been found that energy transfer mainly happened between the pigments whose energy level was most closely adjacent, the loss of energy had a close relation to the process of energy transfer and tended to increase with the decrease of energy level. The protective mechanism of antenna system was also discussed.

Author: LU Qing-Tao, LI Wei-Hua, JIANG Gao-Ming, GE Qiao-Ying, HAO Nai-Bin, SUN Jia-Zhu, GUO Ren-Jun
Journal of Integrative Plant Biology 2001 43(8): 801-804

The parameters of fluorescence induction kinetics and the maximal light-saturated net CO2 assimilation rate ( P sat ) of the flag leaves of four cultivars of winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) were compared at three different developing stages for the first time. From the blooming stage to the milky stage, the quantum efficiency of PSⅡ photochemistry ( Fv/Fm ) declined slightly only at the milk stage. The photochemical quenching co-efficient ( qP ), actual quantum yield of photosystem Ⅱ(PSⅡ)electron transport ( Φ PSⅡ) and P sat decreased substantially (>15%), while the non-photochemical quenching co-efficient ( qN ) increased significantly (>100%). There existed a linear correlation between the Φ PSⅡ and the P sat ( r =0.918). The results indicate that with the senescence of the flag leaves of winter wheat the photosynthetic efficiency including that of the energy transport and the CO2 assimilation significantly decreased.

C4 Pathway Enzymes in Soybean Leaves
Author: LI Wei- Hua, LU Qing-Tao, HAO Nai-Bin, GE Qiao-Ying, ZHANG Qi-De, DU Wei-Guang and KUANG Ting-Yun
Journal of Integrative Plant Biology 2001 43(8): 805-808

High-yielding soybean ( Glycine max (L.) Merr.) variety, “Heinong 40”, and one control variety, “Heinong 37”, were used as experimental materials. The activities of C4 pathway enzymes, i.e. PEPCase (phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase), NADP-ME (NADP-malic enzyme), NADP-MDH (NADP-malate dehydrogenase), PPDK (pyruvate phosphate dikinase) and RuBPCase (ribulose-1.5-bisphosphate carbozylase) were assayed at seedling, blooming, pod-bearing and pod-filling stage. The results indicated that C4 pathway enzymes were expressed differently at different developing stages in both varieties of soybean, but the ratio of PEPCase and RuBPCase showed that the expression of C4 pathway enzymes of “Heinong 40” was higher than those of “Heinong 37” at each stage. The results showed that C4 pathway enzymes were closely related to the crop yielding potential. Therefore, it is possible to select potentially high-yielding soybean variety by the expression of C4 pathway enzymes.

摘要:以不同产量水平的大豆(Glycine max (L.) Merr.)品种"黑农40”和"黑农37”为实验材料,研究了苗期、开花期、初荚期和鼓粒期等不同发育时期的叶片中磷酸烯醇式丙酮酸羧化酶(PEPCase)、NADP-苹果酸脱氢酶(NADP-MDH)、NADP-苹果酸酶(ADP-ME)、丙酮酸磷酸双激酶(PPDK)等C4途径的主要酶和1,5-二磷酸核酮糖羧化酶(RuBPCase)的活性变化.结果表明两种大豆叶片均含有上述4种酶,而且从PEPCase/RuBPCase的比值看,C4酶在高产大豆"黑农40”叶片中表达较高.表明C4循环途径与大豆产量密切相关.这一结果还暗示有可能通过检测C4途径酶的表达水平及比例,筛选出具有高产潜力的大豆种质.

Protective Effects of Glycinebetaine on Brassica chinensis Under Salt Stress (in English)
Author: XU Wen, SUN Mei-Hao, ZHU Ya-Fang and SU Wei-Ai
Journal of Integrative Plant Biology 2001 43(8): 809-814

Brassica chinensis L. were foliarly applied with glycinebetaine (GB), as this species is unable to synthesis GB and sensitive to osmotic stress such as salt. The exogenous GB was easily absorbed and transported by the leaf of B. chinensis . Its application (0-20 mmol/L) enhanced the plant tolerance to salt stress. The treatment of 15 mmol/L GB significantly decreased the Na+ accumulation in leaf and root under NaCl stress. This difference in accumulating Na+ and K+ is caused by higher selectivity of root absorption. Furthermore, GB increased H+-ATPase activity of root plasma membrane evidently. This result strongly suggested that in root the decreased Na+ accumulation was caused by the GB accumulation that enhanced the extrusion of Na+ from the cell in some way through plasma membrane transporter, e.g. Na+/H+ antiport driven by H+-ATPase. The GB application was also found to stabilize the plasma membrane, to decrease the loss of chlorophyll, and to stimulate the osmosis induced proline response under salt stress.

摘要:通过对青菜 (BrassicachinensisL .)叶面喷施甜菜碱 ,发现其易于为叶片所吸收并运至其他部位。一定浓度范围内的甜菜碱可明显增强青菜对盐胁迫的抗性。甜菜碱可显著降低盐胁迫下叶和根中Na+的累积 ,这种降低主要是根系对Na+、K+的选择性吸收能力增强所致。盐胁迫下甜菜碱导致根系质膜H+ ATPase活性提高了 45.1 % ,据此推测甜菜碱降低植株中Na+的累积很可能部分由于促进根系质膜的主动排Na+过程。另外 ,甜菜碱对抗盐性的增强还体现在对叶片质膜和叶绿素的稳定作用和对脯氨酸合成的促进。

Micro-heterogeneity of Storage Glutelin in Rice Seed (in English)
Author: QU Le-Qing, WEI Xiao-Li, Hikaru SATOH, Masahiro OGAWA, Toshihiro KUMAMARU and JIA Xu
Journal of Integrative Plant Biology 2001 43(8): 815-820

Nine rice Oryza sativa L.) mutant lines lacking the seed storage glutelin α-2 subunit were obtained from the progenies of fertilized egg cells treated with N-methy-N-nitrosourea (MNU). The mutants could be classified into three types: the α-1 subunit increased type (α-1H/α-2L), decreased the β-2 subunit decreased type (β-2L/α-2L) and the α-3 subunit increased type (α-3H/α-2L) according to their SDS-PAGE profiles. Two-dimensional electrophoresis analysis revealed that all of the mutants lacked a polypeptide of pI 6.71/α-2, while new polypeptides of pI 6.50/α-1 and pI 6.90/α-3 formed in α-1H/α-2L and α-3H/α-2L mutants respectively. Although the β-2L/α-2L mutants did not form new polypeptide, their pI 8.74/β-2 polypeptide was also decreased, suggesting that the two polypeptides decreased in β-2L/α-2L mutants might derive from the same glutelin precursor. These mutant lines are very useful in studying genetic characterisation,the mechanism of genetic regulation on biosynthesis, gene function and proteomics of rice seed storage glutelin.

Author: XING Yong-Zhong, TAN Yi-Fang, XU Cai-Guo, HUA Jin-Ping, SUN Xin-Li
Journal of Integrative Plant Biology 2001 43(8): 840-845

A linkage map consisting of 221 markers was constructed based on a recombinant inbred line (RIL) population from the cross between Zhenshan 97 and Minghui 63. Quantitative trait loci (QTL) mapping was carried out for grain appearance traits such as grain length, grain width and grain shape in rice in 1998 and 1999. Based on interval mapping method at the threshold LOD≥2.4, six, two and two QTLs were detected for grain length, grain width and grain shape, respectively, in 1998; In 1999, three, two and two QTLs were identified for the three traits, respectively. Of them, seven QTLs were simultaneously identified in both of the years. The QTL with large effects located in the interval RG393-C1087 on chromosome 3 not only controlled the grain length, but also influenced the grain shape. It explained 57.5%, 61.4% and 26.7%, 29.9% of phenotypic variation of the grain length and the grain shape in two years, respectively. The QTL with large effects located in the interval RG360-C734B on chromosome 5 affected the grain width and the grain shape. It explained 44.2%, 53.2% and 32.1%, 36.0% of phenotypic variation of the grain width and the shape in two years, respectively. Eight, five and five QTLs were identified for the grain length, width and shape, respectively, based on mixed linear-model composite interval mapping method at P =0.005. Their general contributions were 58.81%, 44.75%, and 57.47%. One QTL for the grain length was found to be significant interaction with environment.

Root Growth of the Annual Tillering Grass Panicum miliaceum in Heterogeneous Nutrient Environments (in English)
Author: HE Wei-Ming and DONG Ming
Journal of Integrative Plant Biology 2001 43(8): 846-851

To study growth responses of the roots of Panicum miliaceum L. to heterogeneous supply of nutrients. The authors analyzed the effects of the nutrient levels in both original patches (O) and destination patches (D) on the root growth of P. miliaceum when its roots were allowed to extend from original patch into destination patch. When the nutrient levels in the original patches were low, coarse root biomass ratio (coarse root biomass in the D/total coarse root biomass), coarse root length ratio (coarse root length in the D/total coarse root length), coarse root surface area ratio (coarse root surface area in the D/total coarse root surface area) and fine root length ratio (fine root length in the D/total fine root length) were greater in the destination patches with lower nutrient levels than in the destination patches with higher nutrient levels, while fine root length, fine root length density, fine root surface index, and fine root surface area density were smaller in the former than in the latter. When the nutrient levels in the original patches were high, fine root length, fine root length density, fine root surface area index and fine root surface density were greater in the destination patches with lower nutrient levels than in the destination patches with higher nutrient levels, coarse roots did not respond to the nutrient levels in the destination patches significantly. When the roots extended from the original patches with the same nutrient level into the destination patches with contrasting nutrient levels, fine root biomass and its percentage allocation did not respond to the nutrient levels in the destination patches significantly, whereas both root length and root surface area did. This indicates that the fine roots of P. miliaceum responded to difference in nutrient supply by plasticity in their length and surface area, rather than in their root biomass.

摘要:为揭示黍(Panicum miliaceum L.)根系对异质养分环境的生长反应,作者研究了黍根系从起始斑块向目标斑块水平生长时,起始斑块和目标斑块养分水平对根生长的影响.就低养分起始斑块而言,粗根生物量、粗根长度、粗根表面积和细根长度在高养分目标斑块中的分配比例均小于其在低养分目标斑块中的分配比例,而细根长度及其密度、细根表面积指数及其密度的变化恰好相反.就高养分起始斑块而言,高养分目标斑块的细根长度、细根长度密度、细根表面积指数和细根表面积密度均小于低养分目标斑块,而粗根对目标斑块中养分状况的反应不明显.当黍根系从相同的起始斑块进入不同的目标斑块后,目标斑块的养分状况对细根生物量及其分配无影响,而显著影响细根长度和表面积.这指示细根是通过长度和表面积可塑性而不是生物量变化响应目标斑块中的养分差异.

Study on Dynamics of Calorific Value, Biomass and Energy in Calamagrostis epigejos Population in Songnen Grassland (in English)
Author: GUO Ji-Xun, WANG Ruo-Dan and WANG Wei
Journal of Integrative Plant Biology 2001 43(8): 852-856

There were two peaks of seasonal changes of the calorific value in shoot and leaves of Calamagrostis epigejos in middle June and in the early August respectively. The calorific value in stem presented a single peak curve which appeared in the early August. The calorific values in inflorescence and dead standing showed a fluctuation and the peak value of inflorescence was in the early September and that of dead standing was in middle June. The seasonal changes of energy standing crop on the above-ground part synchronized with that of the biomass, which presented a single peak curve. The energy allocated to each organ in different seasons was in the order as leaves >stem >inflorescence in middle June, leaves >stem >dead standing >inflorescence in early July, leaves >stem >inflorescence >dead standing in middle July, and leaves >stem >dead standing >inflorescence from August to September. The vertical allocation of energy in the parts of above-ground was that the energy value gradually increased from the surface to the 20 cm high level and the maximum value at the 10-20 cm high level which made up 26.91% of energy on the above-ground partion, and then it was decreased. In the under-ground portion, the energy value progressively decreased with depth and the maximum value was at 0-10 cm depth layer which made up 69.01% of energy of the under-ground portion.

Estimation of Solar Energy Use Efficiency and Spatiotemporal Pattern in Guangdong Based on Multitemporal NOAA-AVHRR NDVI and GIS Methods
Author: GUO Zhi-Hua, PENG Shao-Lin, WANG Bo-Sun
Journal of Integrative Plant Biology 2001 43(8): 857-862

With the aid of the geographic information system (GIS) software ARC/INFO and remote sensing (RS) digital image-processing software ERMapper, using multitemporal National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)-advanced very high resolution radiometer (AVHRR) mormalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) data and the ground meteorological data, and on the basis of the estimated photosynthetically active radiation ( PAR ) and net primary production ( NPP ), we estimated the solar energy use efficiency ( e ) in Guangdong, China, which lies mainly in subtropical and tropical monsoon climate zone. The results were: (1) the assessed values of e were consistent with the values measured before in the same regions, so the above method for the estimation of e is effectual and reliable; (2) the annual average of e for Guangdong varied between 0-2.96%, and for the whole region was (1.43±0.53)%; (3) the zonal variations of e in Guangdong were very obvious, so the spatial distribution of e values indicated the feature of ‘uneven’ vegetation in Guangdong, together with the distribution of NPP and other indexes; and the seasonal variations of e in Guangdong were very remarkable too. The mean of e in summer (Apr. to Oct.) was 2.9 times as high as that in winter (Nov. to next Mar.); this difference depended on the features of solar radiation and the vegetation, and, the seasonal variations could be attributed to those in temperature and precipitation; (4) even in the evergreen broad-leaved forests, the values of e for different subtypes were not the same and with large seasonal changes.

摘要:在GIS和RS工具支持下,利用多时相卫星数据NOAA-AVHRR NDVI和地面气象数据研究了广东陆地植被光能利用率及其时空格局.结果表明:广东陆地植被光能利用率的遥感估算值与实测值一致,效果较好;广东陆地植被年光能利用率介于0~2.96%之间,年平均光能利用率约为(1.43±0.53)%.广东植被光能利用率的地区差异显著,与净第一性生产力等因子一起共同反映了广东陆地植被具有受人类活动影响而比较破碎的特点;同样,广东植被光能利用率的年变化显著,夏半年(4~10月)约为冬半年(11月~次年3月)的2.9倍,这取决于太阳辐射和植被净第一性生产力, 同时也受该地区气温和水分因子季节变化的影响;即使是常绿阔叶林,其年光能利用率也有明显差异,长势良好的人工常绿阔叶林等的光能利用率高于原生常绿阔叶林,并且光能利用率的年变化显著.

Author: MA Zhi-Gang, YAN Bo, HUANG Xing-Qi, WANG Ling-Xian and ZENG Zhong-Kui
Journal of Integrative Plant Biology 2001 43(8): 821-825

A lectin protein(SFL) with molecular weight about 32 kD which markedly agglutinated rabbit and human red blood cells was purified from the roots of Sophora flavescens Ait. This protein, and apparently inhibited the growth of Fusarium vasinfectum Atk., Gibberella saubinetii (Mont.) Sacc., and Piricularia oryzae Cav. A set of degenerate PCR primer was synthesized according to the N-terminal sequence of the purified protein. The full-length cDNA coding the lectin was cloned by RT-PCR and 5′-RACE and sequenced (GenBank AF285121). The deduced amino acid sequence indicates that a preprotein with 284 amino acid residues is firstly translated and then processed to a mature protein with 254 amino acids. A N-Glycosylation site is the Asn 182 residue. 

摘要:利用RNA原位杂交技术分析了春化相关基因ver203F在冬小麦(Triticum aestivum L. cv. Jingdong No.1)胚芽组织内的表达模式.结果表明,ver203F基因的转录本在春化处理的冬小麦胚芽幼叶中有明显的积累,而在胚芽鞘以及生长点处却未见杂交信号.茉莉酸诱导冬小麦胚芽后的基因表达模式与春化处理后的模式相似.实验结果暗示感受春化作用的信号部位可能是胚芽的幼叶,细胞对春化的应答与茉莉酸介导的信号转导途径有关.
