Organic dust exposure alters monocyte-derived dendritic cell differentiation and maturation.
TLDR
Dust exposure alters monocyte differentiation to iDCs and prevents maturation of iDC to mDCs, which may impact the critical balance of DCs in the lung. Expand
Mapping and candidate genes associated with saccharification yield in sorghum.
TLDR
The identified loci and candidate genes provide information into the factors controlling saccharification yield and may facilitate increasing biofuel production in sorghum. Expand
Quantitative Trait Loci Associated with Anthracnose Resistance in Sorghum
TLDR
The identification of QTL conferring anthracnose resistance and the identification of single-nucleotide polymorphisms linked to these loci will provide the necessary molecular tools for markerassisted introgression of durable anthracNose resistance into elite sorghum inbreds. Expand
Genetic Structure and Linkage Disequilibrium in a Diverse, Representative Collection of the C4 Model Plant, Sorghum bicolor
TLDR
Analysis of the genetic structure and linkage disequilibrium in a sorghum mini core collection of 242 landraces with 13,390 single-nucleotide polymorphims indicated that the mini-core collection was structured along both geographic origin and Sorghum race classification. Expand
A comparative genomic map for Caulanthus amplexicaulis and related species (Brassicaceae)
TLDR
Both the patterns of marker segregation and the comparative map indicate that C. amplexicaulis is a diploid organism with a compact genome, and it is demonstrated that the genomic tools developed here will be portable throughout the Streptanthoid Complex. Expand
Genetic analyses of nickel tolerance in a North American serpentine endemic plant, Caulanthus amplexicaulis var. barbarae (Brassicaceae).
TLDR
In this study, nickel tolerance was determined by two major loci with large effects, suggesting that they are adaptive in the natural serpentine environment. Expand
Muramic Acid, Endotoxin, 3-Hydroxy Fatty Acids, and Ergosterol Content Explain Monocyte and Epithelial Cell Inflammatory Responses to Agricultural Dusts
TLDR
Dust-induced inflammatory cytokine secretion in human monocytes and bronchial epithelial cells was evaluated and large animal farming dust(s)-induced inflammation is not entirely dependent on endotoxin. Expand
Exploring origins, invasion history and genetic diversity of Imperata cylindrica (L.) P. Beauv. (Cogongrass) in the United States using genotyping by sequencing
TLDR
Results indicate that cogongrass has limited evolutionary potential to adapt to novel environments and suggest that upon arrival to its invaded range, this species did not require local adaptation through hybridization/introgression or selection of favourable alleles from a broad genetic base.
