Transcriptome profiling of tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum) pollen and pollen tubes

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5545845
PMID: 28784084
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-017-3972-3

[…] nst a list of 357 UCO protein sequences from Arabidopsis (sequences available at: Finally, the translated unigenes were compared against the PlantTribes database [, ]. In this analysis, 983 shared single copy tribes from Arabidopsis thaliana, Populus trichocarpa, Vitis vinifera and Oryza sativa were compared with the translated unigenes us […]


Comparative Transcriptome Analyses Reveal Core Parasitism Genes and Suggest Gene Duplication and Repurposing as Sources of Structural Novelty

Mol Biol Evol
PMCID: 4327159
PMID: 25534030
DOI: 10.1093/molbev/msu343

[…] ted if it returned a hit with an E value smaller than 1e-10 and at least 30 amino acids long. Results from this analysis shown in indicate that gene coverage ranged from at least 90% in Phelipanche (PlantTribes single copy analysis) to 100% (UCO analysis) in Triphysaria combined assemblies. These results suggested that our assemblies have excellent gene coverage and are very likely to capture the […]


Scanning of Transposable Elements and Analyzing Expression of Transposase Genes of Sweet Potato [Ipomoea batatas]

PLoS One
PMCID: 3946583
PMID: 24608103
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0090895

[…] ete sequences and some experiment validations will be helpful to identified unclassified TEs. It is noteworthy that few of the 1,405 TEs were collected with full length in plant repeat databases like PlantTribes or Repbase , . All the TEs identified in sweet potato are summarized in .The 1,405 TEs were submitted to GenBank for similarity alignment using BLASTn program and the result showed that th […]


Functional genomics of a generalist parasitic plant: Laser microdissection of host parasite interface reveals host specific patterns of parasite gene expression

BMC Plant Biol
PMCID: 3636017
PMID: 23302495
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2229-13-9

[…] EARCH [] to remove similar (sub)sequences (to create non-redundant de novo assemblies). The post-processed unigenes for each build were then queried (BLASTx, 1e-5) against the 10 genomic proteomes in PlantTribes 2.0 [,] and assigned to PlantTribes 2.0 Orthogroups based on the cluster containing the best BLAST hit. Expression levels for each unigene was determined by mapping reads back to de novo a […]


The phenylalanine ammonia lyase (PAL) gene family shows a gymnosperm specific lineage

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 3394424
PMID: 22759610
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2164-13-S3-S1

[…] The nucleotide sequences and corresponding amino acid sequences for the representative taxa were collected from various public databases, including GenBank, PlantGDB and PlantTribes [-]. The inferred transcript sequences for C. atlantica, C. harringtonia, P. abies, P. lambertiani, P. macrophyllus, P. palustris, P. sylvestris, S. verticillata, S. sempervirens, T. bacca […]


Exploring the Switchgrass Transcriptome Using Second Generation Sequencing Technology

PLoS One
PMCID: 3315583
PMID: 22479570
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0034225

[…] switchgrass ESTs that showed a positive hit to the UCO sequences with amino acid alignments of at least 30 residues. We assessed the transcriptome coverage by comparing the switchgrass ESTs with the PlantTribes database , . In this analysis 959 shared single copy tribes from Arabidopsis thaliana, Populus trichocarpa, Vitis vinifera and Oryza sativa were compared with the switchgrass EST reads usi […]
