We conducted a Mendelian randomization analysis to assess the effect of serum uric acid on bone-related outcomes using a weighted urate transporter genetic risk score as the instrumental variable. The results showed no significance. Our study identified no evidence of a causal role between uric acid and bone-related outcomes. Observational studies have(More)
The effects of abiotic stresses on the expression of Lhcb1 gene (coding light-harvesting chlorophyll-protein complex II), and on photosynthetic rate were studied in one Oenanthe javanica (cv. Baguazhou Shuiqin) and three Apium graveolens cultivars (Liuhe Huangxinqin, Jinnan Shiqin, and Ventura). The Lhcb1 genes were cloned and we predicted that Lhcb1(More)
In this study, we report a function of myo-inositol-O-methyltransferase (Imt1) in response to low temperature stress using transgenic Arabidopsis thaliana. Imt1 gene was constructed identical to the Imt1 gene from a halophyte Mesembryanthemum crystallinum. After cold stress, the Imt1 transgenic plants exhibited stronger growth than the wild type plants. The(More)
To date, only aroA variants derived from Agrobacterium tumefaciens CP4 have been used to generate the commercial glyphosate-resistant crops currently available in the market. Therefore, it is of interest to increase aroA gene diversity and seek new glyphosate-tolerant genes for developing glyphosate-tolerant crops. In this study, a novel aroA gene encoding(More)
