Differential Gene Expression of Smoke Induced Seed Germination of Shortgrass Prairie Native Species.

Smoke, as a low cost efficient dormancy breaking treatment, has potential to be pretreatment for native seeds. Karrinkins, identified active compounds, and Karrikin Insensitive 2 (KAI2), the primary protein coding receptor genes, were identified in model organisms (Arabidopsis thaliana). Further, the phylogenetic study of KAI2 homologous from the One Thousand Plant Transcriptome Project indicates that KAI2 gene is widely spread in seed plants. However, it is not known whether the gene is expressed in response to smoke treatment in species critical for native plant restoration. Here, we explored describe differential gene expression of KAI2 and other genes gene in response to smoke treatment using seeds of theon shortgrass prairie native species (Bouteloua gracilis)
