Abstract

Kim’s CATs framework (2016) identified creative climates (C), attitudes (A) and thinking (T) skills for innovation. Creativity can be measured by testing and non-testing methods. Testing methods include creativity tests for climate, attitude and thinking skills. Among the creativity tests available, two versions of the Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking - Figural and Verbal (TTCT-F and V) are most commonly used. I examined the relationships between the two versions as well as their reliability across gender. From preschool children to adults, 994 participants’ scores on the two versions were used. The results showed that scores on the two versions are significantly related, yet TTCT-F is a more comprehensive, reliable and valid measure of creativity than the TTCT-V.

Abstract

Polyamine oxidases (PAOs) are known to be involved in either the terminal catabolism or the back conversion of polyamines, which affect a range of physiological processes, including growth, development, and stress responses. In this study, based on genome-wide analysis, we identified five putative PAO genes (LuPAO1 to LuPAO5) in flax (Linum usitatissimum L.) that contain the amino-oxidase domain and FAD-binding-domain. The expression analysis using quantitative real-time PCR revealed spatial variations in the expression of LuPAOs in different organs. In addition, the expression level of LuPAOs in the flax cell suspension culture was increased by treatment with methyl-jasmonate (MeJA) or pectin, but not with salicylic acid or chitosan. This indicates that LuPAOs might be involved in the MeJA-mediated biological activities. Taken together, our genome-wide analysis of PAO genes and expression profiling of these genes provide the first step toward the functional dissection of LuPAOs.
