For each family with more than three members, the full protein sequences or domain sequences (Kinase)
were aligned using ClustalW Version 2.0 with default options. Then maximum likelihood
trees were bulit using PhyML 2.4.4 with JTT model (Kinase, GT, Transporter) or PhyML 3.0
with LG model (GH, TF, Cyt P450).

Sequences that contain regions matching transposable elements. EST/cDNA
Sequences with matching full-length cDNAs or ESTs. PASA Status
The Program to Assemble Spliced Alignments (PASA) was developed and employed
towards the incorporation of EST and FL-cDNA alignments into the
TIGR Arabidopsis genome annotation. Annotated sequences with exact cDNA
matches are listed as "PASA-validated" Sequences with cDNA hits that do not
exactly match are listed as "PASA-failed". This information assists with assessing
the quality of each gene sequence.
The orthologs in sequenced plants were identified by InParanoid Version 4.1 (Remm et al., 2001). The plant genomes
used to scan for orthologs are Brachypodium distachyon, Panicum virgatum, Sorghum bicolor,
Zea mays, Arabidopsis thaliana, Cucumis sativus,
Glycine max, Medicago truncatula, Mimulus guttatus, Populus trichocarpa,
Ricinus communis and Vitis vinifera.

The subcellular localization of rice GTs, including 'secretory pathway', 'chloroplast', 'mitochondrion' and 'any other location' as predicted byTargetP Version 1.1.
Yeast Two-hybrid Bait
Displays links to interactive yeast two-hybrid protein-protein interaction maps. Links will be
displayed only for kinases that have interactors. Kinases and their interacting proteins are represented by
shapes. Protein name and annotation are also included. Clicking on the protein will automatically
redirect you to TIGR rice gene annotation. This data is distributed by Song Lab, Department of Plant
Pathology, University of Florida and includes 378 interactions with 254 distinct kinase interactors. Tandem Affinity Purification-tagged Bait
This data is another set of protein-protein interactions generated by tandem affinity purification-tagged
experiments. It is distributed by Mike Fromm Lab, University of Nebraska and consists of 364 interactions.
The digital northern data is from MSU/TIGR Rice Genome Annotation Project
and provides the tissue specific gene expression evidence for rice loci based on EST data (Jung et al., 2008).
The EST evidence was determined using the PASA
program which utilizes a number of alignment programs to maximally align transcripts to the genome. The minimal alignment
allowed by the PASA program is 95% identity over 90% length of the transcript.
Massively Parallel Signature Sequencing (MPSS) data was downloaded from the
Rice MPSS Database. For the mRNA data, the sum of abundances of 17bp-tag signatures for
classes 1, 2, 5, and 7 are listed for each library. mRNA library information is shown
below. For more information please visit the Rice MPSS Database website.
The Affymetrix array contains probes to query 51,279 transcripts representing two rice subspecies,
with approximately 48,564 japonica transcripts and 1,260 transcripts representing indica.
The arrays were designed using NCBI UniGene Build #52 (May 7, 2004) incorporating predicted genes from GenBank
and the TIGR Os1 v2 data set (ftp.tigr.org FASTA, 89.3 MB). The NCBI GEO platform Accession Number is
The Affymetrix raw data was downloaded from NCBI GEO and
EBI ArrayExpress. We used the MAS 5.0 method provided by the
affy R package to convert probe level data to expression values. The trimmed mean target intensity of each array
was arbitrarily set to 500. The data within this database was log transformed. There is a little difference between
this MAS 5.0 normalization method that we used and the MAS 5.0 provided by Affmetrix Inc. Affymetrix normalization is
usually done after summarization and the normalization we used was carried out before summarization.
The Rice Multiple-platform Microarrary Element Search
tool was used to get the corresponding Affymetrix probe sets for rice genes and only unique probe sets that match unique
rice loci were included in this database. If several unique probe sets are available for one certain rice gene, we only select
one probe set with the highest expression and this probe set is indicted by the symbol '*'.
Probes on this array are designed to selections from the extensive rice (japonica) cDNA library of Japan National
Institute of Agrobiological Sciences. It contains 22,575 oligos. The NCBI GEO platform Accession Number is
GPL892. Nineteen series corresponding to 104 samples
were downloaded from NCBI GEO and
EBI ArrayExpress. Then R package marray in Bioconductor was used
to do the normalization. Within-array Lowess normalization and between-array MAD scale normalization were used.
The oligo selection method is same with the Affymetrix platform.
BGI/Yale Platform Oryza sativa Genome Oligo Set Version 1.0 was used in this dataset, which was designed
by the Beijing Genomics Institute (BGI) and contains 60,727 70-mer oligos representing both the
indica and japonica genomes. Oligos were designed from cDNAs, expreseed sequence tag (EST) sequences,
predicted genes from the BGI rice genome build and other public resources. The NCBI GEO platform Accession
Number is GPL1829.
This data was also downloaded from NCBI GEO, including 4 series GSE6533, GSE6552, GSE11712 and GSE13161,
corresponding to 251 samples. In the case of multiple oligos that match single loci, the selection method
was the same as with the Affymetrix platform.
NSF 20K and 45K Platform
The NSF funded rice oligo array version 2 (NSF 20K) developped by the
Ronald Lab at UC Davis and the TIGR, contains 20,190
unique probes for rice. The number of total spots including empty and controls is 21,120. The
NCBI GEO platform Accession Number is GPL2091.

We used the oligonucleotide identification tool, PICKY 2.0, to design the 50- to 70-mer oligos
that comprise the NSF45K array. NSF45K arrays contain 43,311 oligonucleotide probes that target
45,116 gene models out of a total of 61,420 target transcript sequences in the TIGR V3 rice gene
set release. This array is printed on two slides, NSF45Ka and NSF45Kb. NSF45Ka contains 23,040 oligos
including 240 oligos corresponding to the hygromycin phosphotransferase (hph) gene (GenBank Accession:
AF354045), a selectable marker used in transgenic rice generation. NSF45Kb contains 20,727 oligos
including 216 hph oligos. The hph oligos serve as positive controls for experiments comparing transgenic
plants with wild type plants. These show approximately 10-fold induction relative to non-transgenic samples.
Alternatively, the hph spots serve as negative controls for non-transgenic samples.
Normalization method and oligo selection are same with Agilent arrays.
