Data from: Brassinosteroids act as a positive regulator of NBR1-dependent selective autophagy in response to chilling stress in tomato

Jie Zhou, Cheng Chi, Xiaomeng Li, Pingping Fang, Xiaojian Xia, Kai Shi, Yanhong Zhou & Jing-Quan Yu
Autophagy is a highly conserved and regulated catabolic process involved in the degradation of protein aggregates, and it plays critical roles in eukaryotes. In plants, autophagy has been well studied in stress responses. Although multiple molecular processes can induce or suppress autophagy, the mechanism of its regulation by phytohormones is poorly understood. Brassinosteroids (BRs) are steroid phytohormones that play crucial roles in plant response to stresses. In present study, we investigate the role of BRs...

Data from: Active information maintenance in working memory by a sensory cortex

Xiaoxing Zhang, Wenjun Yan, Wenliang Wang, Hongmei Fan, Ruiqing Hou, Yulei Chen, Zhaoqin Chen, Chaofan Ge, Shumin Duan, Albert Compte & Chengyucheng T. Li
Working memory is a critical brain function for maintaining and manipulating information over delay periods of seconds. It is debated whether delay-period neural activity in sensory regions is important for the active maintenance of information during the delay period. Here, we tackle this question by examining the anterior piriform cortex (APC), an olfactory sensory cortex, in head-fixed mice performing several olfactory working memory tasks. Active information maintenance is necessary in these tasks, especially in a...

Data from: Natural selection and repeated patterns of molecular evolution following allopatric divergence

Background: Geographic speciation is a major force in generating biodiversity. However, how genomes diverge over time after geographic isolation has halted gene flow has remained unclear. We examine genome-wide divergence of putatively single-copy orthologous genes (POGs) from transcriptomes in 20 allopatric species/variety pairs from diverse angiosperm clades. Sixteen of these pairs reflect the well-known eastern Asia – eastern North America floristic disjunction; these species have been isolated for different lengths of time, from the Miocene...

Data from: The distribution of plants and seed dispersers in response to habitat fragmentation in an artificial island archipelago

Jiajia Liu, Ferry Slik, David Coomes, Richard T. Corlett, Yanping Wang, Maxwell Wilson, Guang Hu, Ping Ding & Mingjian Yu
Aim: Small, old-growth forest fragments generally have more small-seeded plants than large patches, due to the disappearance of large seed dispersing vertebrates. This pattern may differ for secondary forest fragments where differential migration ability rather than persistence of seed dispersers may be driving plant community assembly. In this paper, we investigated the effect of habitat fragmentation on seed dispersers and plant community structure in regenerating forests. Location: The Thousand Island Lake, China. Taxon: Plants, birds...

Data from: Optical and molecular signatures of dissolved organic matter reflect anthropogenic influence in a coastal river, Northeast China

Ding He, Chen He, Penghui Li, Xiaowen Zhang, Quan Shi & Yongge Sun
Sources and molecular composition of dissolved organic matter (DOM) in coastal rivers have been tightly linked with its reactivity and fate, thus influencing element and nutrient cycling. The DOM in coastal rivers is usually sourced from both terrestrial and marine inputs, with further complication by anthropogenic activities, which is less understood in coastal rivers located near populated industrial regions. In this study, DOM in a typical anthropogenically influenced coastal river, Daliao River, was analyzed for...

Data from: Brassinosteroids act as positive regulators of autophagy pathways in response to chilling stress in tomato

Jie Zhou, Cheng Chi, Xiaomeng Li, Pingping Fang, Xiaojian Xia, Kai Shi, Yanhong Zhou & J Q Yu
Autophagy, a highly conserved and regulated catabolic process involved in the degradation of protein aggregates, plays critical roles in eukaryotes. In plants, autophagy has been well studied in stress responses including nutrient deficiency, salt and drought stress. Whilst, multiple molecular processes can induce or suppress autophagy, however, the mechanism of its regulation by phytohormones is little known. Brassinosteroids (BRs) are steroid phytohormones which play crucial roles in plant response to stresses. We used diverse techniques,...

Data from: Duplication and diversification of trehalase confers evolutionary advantages on lepidopteran insects

Yanyan Zhou, Xiaotong Li, Susumu Katsuma, Yusong Xu, Liangen Shi, Toru Shimada & Huabing Wang
Gene duplication provides a major source of new genes for evolutionary novelty and ecological adaptation. However, the maintenance of duplicated genes and their relevance to adaptive evolution has long been debated. Insect trehalase (Treh) plays key roles in energy metabolism, growth, and stress recovery. Here, we show that the duplication of Treh in Lepidoptera (butterflies and moths) is linked with their adaptation to various environmental stresses. Generally, two Treh genes are present in insects: Treh1...
