Method for Creating High Yield Plants Using the K-Domain of a MIKC Type MADS-Box Gene

IntroductionWhile transgenic plants are commonly associated with possessing herbicidal and insecticidal resistant traits, many transgenic plants are developed for the purpose of raising high yielding food crops from increased seed/fruit production. Crop yield characteristics of plants are genetically controlled through the complex interaction and expression...

Rice Mutator-Like (MULE) Transposed in Yeast

IntroductionTransposable elements (TEs), also known as “jumping genes,” are pieces of DNA that can change their genomic position. Transposase is an enzyme that acts as a catalyst for the movement of a TE to another part of the genome and is required for a TE to move. Autonomous TEs encode their own transposases and therefore are capable...
