Abstract

Late embryonic proteins (LEA) gene family was abundant mainly in higher plant embryos, which could protect the embryos from the damage caused by abiotic stress, especially drought and salt stresses. In the present study, GmLEA2-1 was cloned from soybean leaf tissue treated by 10% polyethylene glycol 6000 (PEG6000). The results of quantitative real-time PCR (qRT-PCR) revealed a variety of expression patterns of GmLEA2-1 in various tissues of soybean (root, stem, leaf, flower, pod, early embryo and late embryo). GmLEA2-1 gene shared a lower sequence similarity with other typical LEA genes of same group from different species, but similar functions. Overexpression of GmLEA2-1 in transgenic Arabidopsis thaliana conferred tolerance to drought and salt stresses. The fresh weight and dry weight of seedling, the primary root length and the lateral root density of transgenic Arabidopsis plants were higher than those of wild type Arabidopsis (WT) under drought and salt stresses. Cis-acting regulatory elements in the GmLEA2-1 promoter were also predicted. These data demonstrate that GmLEA2-1 protein play an important role in improving drought and salt tolerance in plants.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 28 September 2018.
All research outputs
#12,030,917
of 13,568,727 outputs
Outputs from Acta Biologica Hungarica
#69
of 128 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#228,542
of 265,069 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Acta Biologica Hungarica
#3
of 4 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,568,727 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 128 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 1.6. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 265,069 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 4 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one.
