Genome Wide Identification and Analysis of TCP Transcription Factors Involved in the Formation of Leafy Head in Chinese Cabbage

Int J Mol Sci
PMCID: 5877708
PMID: 29538304
DOI: 10.3390/ijms19030847

[…] A conserved TCP domain is usually found at the N terminal of TCP TFs. To obtain the TCP members of Chinese cabbage, the TCP domains (PF03634) of the B. rapa genome were searched on the Brassica Database (BRAD), and all TCP candidate sequences were examined using the domain analysis online tools: PfamScan (, InterPro (a protein sequence analy […]


Genome wide identification, phylogeny, evolution, and expression patterns of MtN3/saliva/SWEET genes and functional analysis of BcNS in Brassica rapa

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5834901
PMID: 29499648
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-018-4554-8

[…] We downloaded the full-length DNA sequences and the cDNA sequences of MtN3/saliva/SWEETs genes from the Brassica database. GSDS (Gene Structure Display Server) ( was utilized to analyze the locations of introns and exons. Homologous sequence alignment of the 34 MtN3/ […]


Genome Wide Identification, Evolutionary and Expression Analyses of the GALACTINOL SYNTHASE Gene Family in Rapeseed and Tobacco

Int J Mol Sci
PMCID: 5751367
PMID: 29261107
DOI: 10.3390/ijms18122768

[…] d protein sequences from A. thaliana were downloaded from the Arabidopsis Information Resource (TAIR,, those from B. napus, B. rapa and B. oleracea were retrieved from the Brassica Database (BRAD,, those from N. tabacum, S. lycopersicum and S. tuberosum were downloaded from the Solanaceae Database ( and those from maiz […]


Comprehensive genomic analysis of the CNGC gene family in Brassica oleracea: novel insights into synteny, structures, and transcript profiles

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5683364
PMID: 29132315
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-017-4244-y

[…] ed with the DNAMAN program (version; Lynnon Corporation, Quebec, Canada). The BoCNGC protein sequences were also aligned with CNGC sequences from A. thaliana and B. rapa (downloaded from the Brassica database; [] using the default settings of the ClustalX 2.0 program. The alignments were viewed with the GeneDoc program []. A phylogenetic tree was constructed u […]


Genome wide identification and expression analysis of calmodulin like (CML) genes in Chinese cabbage (Brassica rapa L. ssp. pekinensis)

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5668983
PMID: 29096605
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-017-4240-2

[…] na were downloaded from the TAIR database (The Arabidopsis Information Resource) and used as a query to perform BLASTP searching. The whole genome sequences of Chinese cabbage from the BRAD database (Brassica database) [] and the NCBI database were used to search the potential CML genes in Chinese cabbage. To differentiate between CaM and CML genes which were homologs in Chinese cabbage, we follow […]


Synteny analysis of genes and distribution of loci controlling oil content and fatty acid profile based on QTL alignment map in Brassica napus

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5639739
PMID: 29025408
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-017-4176-6

[…] and TAIR ( []. Brassica genes were identified based on homology to A. thaliana genes, with a score¬†>¬†80, by using blastn (using A. thaliana nucleotides sequence) on Brassica Database ( [] to get B. rapa and B. oleracea homologous genes; and browser (using B. rapa and B. oleracea gene names) on Brassica napus genome resource (http://www.geno […]
