Dicer, Argonaute and RNA-dependent RNA polymerase form the core components to trigger RNA silencing. Although tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) is a dicotyledon model plant, no systematic analysis and expression profiling of these genes in tomato has been undertaken previously. In this study, seven Dicer-like (SlDCLs), 15 Argonaute (SlAGOs) and six(More)
Cabbage Fusarium wilt (CFW) is a destructive disease causing great losses to cabbage (Brassica oleracea L. var. capitata L.) production worldwide. At present, there are few reports concerning molecular marker research on cabbage resistance to CFW. In this study, 160 double haploid (DH) lines were obtained from the F1 population of a 99–77 (highly resistant(More)
The presence of alien invasive species has serious negative impact on endemic biodiversity, especially on native species that occupy the same niche in the ecosystem. To study the influence of the alien invasive species Bursaphelenchus xylophilus on its native sister species B. mucronatus, the two nematode species were mix-cultured in a fungal mat and(More)
BACKGROUND MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are considered to be very important in regulating the growth, development, behavior and stress response in animals and plants in post-transcriptional gene regulation. Pinewood nematode, Bursaphelenchus xylophilus, is an important invasive plant parasitic nematode in Asia. To have a comprehensive knowledge about miRNAs of the(More)
Bursaphelenchus xylophilus and Bursaphelenchus mucronatus are migratory endoparasitic nematodes that live in pine trees. To gain insight into their molecular similarities and differences, transcriptomes of the two nematodes were analysed. A total of 23,765 and 21,782 contigs (>300 bp) were obtained from B. xylophilus and B. mucronatus, respectively. More(More)
Our recent research revealed that pinewood nematode (PWN) possesses few genes encoding enzymes for degrading α-pinene, which is the main compound in pine resin. In this study, we examined the role of PWN microbiome in xenobiotics detoxification by metagenomic and bacteria culture analyses. Functional annotation of metagenomes illustrated that benzoate(More)
Fusarium wilt is an important root disease of cucumber throughout the world. There are no accurate simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers for use in molecular breeding of fusarium wilt resistance and no studies on chromosomal mapping of the resistance in cucumber. In this paper, a set of 148 F9 recombinant inbred lines derived from the cross 9110Gt × 9930 and(More)
Cabbage Fusarium wilt (CFW), caused by Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. conglutinans, is one of the most devastating diseases of cabbage worldwide. In recent years, CFW has been spreading across northern Chinad. Thus, development of resistant cultivars is necessary to control CFW. Here we report microspore culture from a cross of two elite cabbage inbred lines,(More)
Acremonium implicatum is an endophytic fungus with biocontrol potential against Meloidogyne incognita based on its opportunistic egg-parasitic, hatching inhibition, and toxic properties. To understand its mode of plant endophytism and opportunistic egg parasitism, GFP-tagged A. implicatum was constructed by PEG-mediated protoplast transformation. By laser(More)
Excessive manganese (Mn) accumulation in the brain may induce an extrapyramidal disorder known as manganism. Inflammatory processes play a critical role in neurodegenerative diseases. Therapeutically, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or analogous anti-inflammatory therapies have neuroprotective effects. As a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug,(More)
