    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

Abstract Land plants evolved from charophytic algae, among which Charophyceae
possess the most complex body plans. We present the genome of Chara braunii;
comparison of the genome to those of land plants identified
evolutionary novelties for plant terrestrialization and land plant
heritage genes. C. braunii employs unique xylan synthases for cell wall biosynthesis, a phragmoplast (cell separation) mechanism similar to that of land plants, and many phytohormones. C. braunii plastids
are controlled via land-plant-like retrograde signaling, and
transcriptional regulation is more elaborate than in other algae. The
morphological complexity of this organism may result from expanded gene
families, with three cases of particular note: genes effecting tolerance
to reactive oxygen species (ROS), LysM receptor-like kinases, and transcription factors (TFs). Transcriptomic analysis of sexual reproductive structures reveals intricate control by TFs, activity of the ROS gene network, and the ancestral use of plant-like storage and stress protection proteins in the zygote.
