The entire chloroplast genome of the monocot rice (Oryza sativa) has been sequenced and comprises 134525 bp. Predicted genes have been identified along with open reading frames (ORFs) conserved between rice and the previously sequenced chloroplast genomes, a dicot, tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum), and a liverwort (Marchantia polymorpha). The same complement of(More)
Transcription of the 2.6 kbp psbK-psbI-trnG cluster in tobacco chloroplasts has been studied. This cluster contains, in linear sequence, the genes encoding two low-molecular-mass polypeptides, K and I, of photosystem II (psbK and psbI, respectively), and tRNAGly (UCC) (trnG). Northern blot hybridization revealed that the largest transcript (2.6 kb)(More)
In this report we describe the synthesis of oligonucleotides containing sulfide-linked dinucleoside units, namely rT(2'OH)sdT, rT(2'OMe)sdT, dTsrU(2'OMe) and dT(2'OMe)srU(2'OMe). We also describe the interactions of such oligomers with complementary DNA and RNA targets, and provide the structural basis for their remarkable RNA binding selectivity. In all(More)
Myopia is a public health problem in the world and its prevalence and incidence are rising in recent years. Studies have shown that myopia is a kind of complex genetic diseases. And sclera-remodeling plays an important role in the development of myopia. The recent research advances in association with both sclera-remodeling relevant gene polymorphisms and(More)
