Digital expression analysis of the genes associated with salinity resistance after overexpression of a stress-responsive small GTP-binding RabG protein in peanut.
The Rab protein family is the largest family of the small GTP-binding proteins. Among them, the RabG genes are known to be responsive to abiotic stresses, but the molecular mechanisms of the stress responses mediated by RabG genes in plants is poorly understood. To investigate the molecular mechanism of AhRabG gene in peanut, transgenic plants overexpressing the AhRabG gene (S6) with ... more
MYBA2 transcription factor (Myb-related gene) affects the coloring in grapevine berry and plays an important role in the biosynthesis of anthocyanin. The MYBA2 gene was cloned from Vitis vinifera L. cv. Cabernet Sauvignon and polyclonal antibodies for VvmybA2 were prepared. The VvmybA2 gene expression patterns were observed in seven tissues (the leaf, stem, flower, bud, root, berry, and ... more
Fine mapping and candidate gene analysis of Brtri1, a gene controlling trichome development in Chinese cabbage (Brassica rapa L. ssp pekinensis).
Trichomes are derived from the epidermis and constitute an ideal system for studying cell division in plants. Here, a Chinese cabbage doubled haploid (DH) line (FT) without trichomes was crossed with another DH line (PurDH-1) with trichomes to develop an F population for fine mapping of trichome control genes. Genetic analysis showed that the trichome phenotype was controlled by a single ... more
Axillary branching is controlled by a very complex mechanism involving various endogenous and environmental factors. Previous studies have shown that Tb1/BRC1 is the point of integration in the network of molecular mechanisms regulating axillary branching in plants. In this study, we cloned the Tb1/BRC1 ortholog, NtBRC1, from Nicotiana tabacum and functionally analyzed its role in the control ... more
Identification and cloning of GOLDEN2-LIKE1 (GLK1), a transcription factor associated with chloroplast development in Brassica napus L.
Photosynthesis is the process by which dry matter accumulates, which affects rapeseed yield. In this study, we identified GOLDEN2-LIKE1 (GLK1), located on chromosome A07 and 59.2 kb away from the single nucleotide polymorphism marker SNP16353A07, which encodes a transcription factor associated with the rate of photosynthesis in leaves. We then identified 96 GLK1 family members from 53 species ... more
CASE-REPORT Dysregulation of gene expression in a patient with depressive disorder after transient ischemic attack confirmed by a neurophysiological neuromarker.
The aim of this study was to evaluate dysregulation of gene expression associated with the cellular stress response in a patient with a post-"warning stroke" depressive disorder confirmed by the presence of a neurophysiological neuromarker through the use of quantitative EEG and event-related potentials. The patient was tested for seven genes associated with the stress reaction: HSPA1A, HSPB1 ... more
Inhibition of miR-660-5p expression suppresses tumor development and metastasis in human breast cancer.
Breast cancer, which derives from the epithelium of the mammary glands, is one of the most common cancers diagnosed in women globally. To date, the authors of many studies have reported that the deregulation of microRNAs (miRNAs) plays a crucial role in the occurrence, development, and metastasis of tumors. Here, we discovered that miR-660-5p was upregulated in the breast cancer cell lines ... more
Comparative genomic hybridization (CGH) is a powerful tool used to analyze changes in copy number, polymorphisms, and structural variations in the genome. Gene copy number variation (CNV) is a common form of natural diversity in the genome, which can create new genes and alter gene structure. Thus, CNVs may influence phenotypic variation and gene expression. In this study, to detect CNVs, we ... more
Multiflorous spikelets are found in several grass species of agricultural and economic interest. In oat, this morphological characteristic is associated with the production of naked grains. Although many genetic studies have been performed over the past century, the inheritance of the multiflorous spikelet trait is not fully understood in oat. The objectives of this study were to evaluate ... more
Effects of low temperature on photosynthetic characteristics in the super-high-yield hybrid rice 'Liangyoupeijiu' at the seedling stage.
To elucidate the resistance of high-yield hybrid rice (Oryza sativa L.) at the seedling stage to low temperature, photosynthetic characteristics, such as membrane lipid peroxidation, fatty acid composition, and chloroplast ultrastructure, were investigated in a newly developed super-hybrid rice ('Liangyoupeijiu') and a traditional chill-sensitive hybrid rice ('Shanyou63'), with 20°C as the ... more
