PAC-1 is an inducible, nuclear-specific, dual-specificity mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinase phosphatase that has been shown recently to be a transcription target of the human tumor-suppressor protein p53 in signaling apoptosis and growth suppression. However, its substrate specificity and regulation of catalytic activity thus far remain elusive. Here,(More)
Ionotropic glutamate receptors (GluRs) function as an excitatory transmitter system in human brain, particularly in learning and memory. Development of small-molecule chemical ligands that selectively potentiate the ion channel activity of AMPA-subtype GluRs would hold promise for treating an exceptionally wide range of disorders including neurodegenerative(More)
Oligomeric N-methyl D-aspartate receptor (NMDAR) in brain is a ligand-gated ion channel that becomes selectively permeable to ions upon binding to ligands. For NMDAR channel, the binding of glutamate and glycine results in opening of the calcium permeable channel. Because the calcium influx mediated by NMDAR is important for synaptic plasticity and(More)
Stripe rust, caused by Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici (Pst), is an important disease of wheat worldwide. Host resistance is the best way to control the disease. Genetic analysis of F2 and F2:3 populations from an Avocet S/Jimai 22 cross indicated that stripe rust resistance in Jimai 22 was conferred by a single dominant gene, tentatively designated(More)
The allohexaploid bread wheat originally derived from three closely related species with A, B and D genome. Although numerous studies were performed to elucidate its origin and phylogeny, no consensus conclusion has reached. In this study, we cloned and sequenced the genes Wcor15-2A, Wcor15-2B and Wcor15-2D in 23 diploid, 10 tetraploid and 106 hexaploid(More)
