Comprehensive analysis of TCP transcription factors and their expression during cotton () fiber early development
TCP proteins are plant-specific transcription factors implicated to perform a variety of physiological functions during plant growth and development. In the current study, we performed for the first time the comprehensive ...
Nicotine exposure caused significant transgenerational heritable behavioral changes in Caenorhabditis elegans
Passive and active exposure to tobacco smoking among youth is directly associated with immediate as well as long-term health deterioration. Despite all public health policies and efforts, the percentage of teenage smokers ...
MicroRNA Expression Analysis in the Cellulosic Biofuel Crop Switchgrass () under Abiotic Stress
Switchgrass has increasingly been recognized as a dedicated biofuel crop for its broad adaptation to marginal lands and high biomass. However, little is known about the basic biology and the regulatory mechanisms of gene ...
Boron Stress Responsive MicroRNAs and Their Targets in Barley
Boron stress is an environmental factor affecting plant development and production. Recently, microRNAs (miRNAs) have been found to be involved in several plant processes such as growth regulation and stress responses. In ...
Genome sequencing and analysis of the paclitaxel-producing endophytic fungus NRRL 62431
Background Paclitaxel (Taxol™) is an important anticancer drug with a unique mode of action. The biosynthesis of paclitaxel had been considered restricted to the Taxus species until it was discovered in Taxomyces andreanae, ...
Contribution and distribution of inorganic ions and organic compounds to the osmotic adjustment in response to salt stress
The mechanism by which plants cope with salt stress remains poorly understood. The goal of this study is to systematically investigate the contribution and distribution of inorganic ions and organic compounds to the osmotic ...
RDX Induces Aberrant Expression of MicroRNAs in Mouse Brain and Liver
(East Carolina University, 2009-02)
Background: Although microRNAs (miRNAs) have been found to play an important role in many biological and metabolic processes, their functions in animal response to environmental toxicant exposure are largely unknown. ...
RDX and miRNA Expression: Zhang and Pan Respond
(East Carolina University, 2009-03)
Identification, characterization, and gene expression analysis of nucleotide binding site (NB)-type resistance gene homologues in switchgrass
Abstract Background Switchgrass (Panicum virgatum L.) is a warm-season perennial grass that can be used as a second generation bioenergy crop. However, foliar fungal ...
De Novo Transcriptome Assembly and Comparative Analysis Elucidate Complicated Mechanism Regulating Astragalus chrysochlorus Response to Selenium Stimuli
Astragalus species are medicinal plants that are used in the world for years. Some Astragalus species are known for selenium accumulation and tolerance and one of them is Astragalus chrysochlorus, a secondary selenium ...
