Multifunctional activities of ERF109 as affected by salt stress in Arabidopsis

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5913302
PMID: 29686365
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-24452-6
call_split See protocol

[…] Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes (KEGG) (–. Analysis of promoter cis-elements for the genes in the first four clusters was done using Promoter Analysis software ( consulting the promoter sequence (up to −500 nt) datasets available at TAIR in order to detect putative binding sites for ERF109 and other TFs in the AP2/ERF g […]


The FBH family of bHLH transcription factors controls ACC synthase expression in sugarcane

J Exp Bot
PMCID: 5920332
PMID: 29514290
DOI: 10.1093/jxb/ery083
call_split See protocol

[…] elements present in at least three different species, including sugarcane, were considered in the search for putative transcription factor binding sites (TFBS). We identified putative TFBS using the PlantPAN 2.0 database (), and the resulting cis-element sequences were manually double-checked against original references; elements containing inconsistencies were discarded. […]


Ubiquitin related genes are differentially expressed in isogenic lines contrasting for pericarp cell size and grain weight in hexaploid wheat

BMC Plant Biol
PMCID: 5784548
PMID: 29370763
DOI: 10.1186/s12870-018-1241-5

[…] Transcripts with < 1000 bp upstream in the reference sequence were not used in the analysis. We used the FIMO tool from the MEME suite (v 4.11.4; []) with a position weight matrix (PWM) obtained from plantPAN 2.0 (; []). We ran FIMO with a p value threshold of <1e-4 (default), increased the max-stored-scores to 1,000,000 to account for the size of the dataset, and […]


Abiotic Stresses Cause Differential Regulation of Alternative Splice Forms of GATA Transcription Factor in Rice

Front Plant Sci
PMCID: 5693882
PMID: 29181013
DOI: 10.3389/fpls.2017.01944

[…] was used to analyze the gene structure and for calculating the number of exon and intron in the gene sequence. The cis-acting elements in the promoter region of OsGATA genes were deduced using PlantPan version 2 ( […]


Identification of miRNA mediated drought responsive multi tiered regulatory network in drought tolerant rice, Nagina 22

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5684420
PMID: 29133823
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-15450-1

[…] rther the promoter sequences from N22 were analyzed for the presence of cis-regulatory elements using PLACE database ( and the OsSPL9 binding sites were mapped using PlantPAN 2.0. […]


Dataset of the HOX1 gene sequences of the wheat polyploids and their diploid relatives

PMCID: 5699892
PMID: 29201982
DOI: 10.1016/j.dib.2017.11.010
call_split See protocol

[…] nment of a selective set of structurally different amino acid sequences for each species (). The putative cis- regulatory, stress responsive elements in the gene promoter were searched using database PlantPAN 2.0 ( represents the most conservative elements implicated in response to drought and/or abscisic acid (ABA) which triggers ABA signaling pathway associate […]
