The WRKY Transcription Factor Genes in Lotus japonicus

Article English OPEN
Song, Hui; Wang, Pengfei; Nan, Zhibiao; Wang, Xingjun;

WRKY transcription factor genes play critical roles in plant growth and development, as well as stress responses. WRKY genes have been examined in various higher plants, but they have not been characterized in Lotus japonicus. The recent release of the L. japonicus whol... View more
