  MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small RNAs of about 22 nucleotides. They are commonly known for their essential roles in regulating biotic and abiotic stress response in plants. Drought stress is one of the most common problems for wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) productivity in Iran. The present study evaluated ...  Read More

Arezoo Pourfarid; Ali Pakdin-Parizi; Reza Ghorbani-Nasrabad; Heshmatollah Rahimian

Volume 8, Issue 2 , December 2020, , Pages 61-72

  Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) symbiosis could mitigate the adverse effects of abiotic stresses in various plants. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of AMF-inoculation on expression of several stress-responsive genes in two rice cultivars under different water conditions. The seedlings ...  Read More

Erfan Jamshidi; Maryam Parvini Kohneh shahri; Reza Darvishzadeh

Volume 7, Issue 1 , June 2019, , Pages 31-36

  Sclerotinia stem rot disease caused by Sclerotinia sclerotiorum is one of the most important diseases of sunflower. Telomeres are nucleoprotein structures at the ends of chromosomes that are essential for maintaining the integrity of the genome. The aim of this study was to determine the alteration of ...  Read More
