Microarray Analysis of Rice d1 (RGA1) Mutant Reveals the Potential Role of G Protein Alpha Subunit in Regulating Multiple Abiotic Stresses Such as Drought, Salinity, Heat, and Cold

Front Plant Sci
PMCID: 4729950
PMID: 26858735
DOI: 10.3389/fpls.2016.00011

[…] 20925 at NCBI GEO) revealed 2270 differentially expressed genes, out of which the stress responsive data set was identified and analyzed using three approaches: Gene Ontology terms, data mining from STIFDB, and meta-data analysis from Rice DB. Firstly, segregation using Gene Ontology terms yielded 94 genes corresponding to various abiotic stress categories, most of which belonged to less than 40 […]


Transcriptional regulatory networks in Arabidopsis thaliana during single and combined stresses

Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 4838348
PMID: 26681689
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gkv1463

[…] ially regulated gene-list contained 294 TFs, out of which 187 were grouped into 39 TF families based on manual searches in the DATF database (). The TFBS motifs for these families were generated from STIFDB2 (), AGRIS () and published literature (,). We considered only the experimentally confirmed TFBS motifs. The relevant references have been included with respective PubMed IDs in (Supplementary […]


Interactions Among Plant Transcription Factors Regulating Expression of Stress responsive Genes

Bioinform Biol Insights
PMCID: 4167486
PMID: 25249757
DOI: 10.4137/BBI.S16313

[…] e stress conditions. We observed that some genes were upregulated in multiple abiotic stress conditions and we named them as “master genes.” There were 15 master genes, identified in A. thaliana from STIFDB database, which were upregulated in five different abiotic stress conditions – ABA, cold, drought, light, and salt stress. For these genes, the presence of TFBS was searched 1000 bp upstream re […]


Overexpression of UCP1 in tobacco induces mitochondrial biogenesis and amplifies a broad stress response

BMC Plant Biol
PMCID: 4046140
PMID: 24886177
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2229-14-144

[…] database with BLASTp, and COG functional categories were assigned only if the two best hits had the same COG function. Stress-related genes were mapped using BLASTx against the tomato proteome in the Stress Responsive Transcription Factor Database (STIFDB) [], and annotations were assigned to the corresponding representative tobacco contig. […]


Gleditsia sinensis: Transcriptome Sequencing, Construction, and Application of Its Protein Protein Interaction Network

Biomed Res Int
PMCID: 4058233
PMID: 24982878
DOI: 10.1155/2014/404578

[…] notes the number of nodes with degree k [].Stress resistance genes and protein sequences of Arabidopsis thaliana proteins related to salinity, drought, and freezing tolerance were downloaded from the stress responsive transcription factor database [–] (STIFDB; and compared with the G. sinensis unigene library to search for homologous sequences potentially possessi […]


CAMTA 1 regulates drought responses in Arabidopsis thaliana

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 3621073
PMID: 23547968
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2164-14-216

[…] sher statistical test method and by default Benjamini–Yekutieli method with 0.05 significance level to do the multiple comparison correction is used. The Abiotic stress related data was obtained from STIFDB (Stress Responsive Transcription Factor Database) ( and genes related to drought, salt and cold were retrieved []. CAMTA positively and negatively regulated genes […]
