Cancer cells induce a set of adaptive response pathways to survive in the face of stressors due to inadequate vascularization. One such adaptive pathway is the unfolded protein (UPR) or endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress response mediated in part by the ER-localized transmembrane sensor IRE1 (ref. 2) and its substrate XBP1 (ref. 3). Previous studies report(More)
Patients taking immunosuppressive drugs, like cyclosporine A (CsA), that inhibit calcineurin are highly susceptible to disseminated fungal infections, although it is unclear how these drugs suppress resistance to these opportunistic pathogens. We show that in a mouse model of disseminated Candida albicans infection, CsA-induced susceptibility to fungal(More)
An AREB gene, designated as AhAREB1, was cloned from peanut (Arachis hypogaea L.). The gene contains a 1 338-bp open reading frame that encodes a putative protein of 445 amino acids. The corresponding genomic DNA containing four exons and three introns was isolated and analyzed. An upstream 1 060-bp DNA promoter fragment of the AhAREB1 gene was also(More)
Abscisic acid (ABA) is one of the most important phytohormones involved in abiotic stress responses. ABA transport in plants is important in determining endogenous ABA levels and their resulting physiological responses. However, the regulation of ABA transport remains unclear. In this study, we compared the ABA concentrations and AhNCED1 levels at seedling(More)
