MicroRNA-381 (miR-381) is a highly expressed onco-miRNA that is involved in malignant progression and has been suggested to be a good target for glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) therapy. In this study, we employed two-dimensional fluorescence differential gel electrophoresis (2-D DIGE) and MALDI-TOF/TOF-MS/MS to identify 27 differentially expressed proteins,(More)
Quorum sensing (QS) is a system of cell-to-cell communication by means of intercellular signaling molecules to coordinate a set of targeted gene expression or repression in many Gram-negative bacteria; it plays important roles for bacteria in adaptation to adverse environmental conditions. In this study, we first demonstrated that Microcystis aeruginosa(More)
Leaf morphology, particularly in crop, is one of the most important agronomic traits because it influences the yield through the manipulation of photosynthetic capacity and transpiration. To understand the regulatory mechanism of leaf morphogenesis, an Oryza sativa dominant mutant, rolled and erect leaf 1 (rel1) has been characterized. This mutant has a(More)
Cyanobacteria are the dominant bloom-forming species in Lake Taihu. Understanding the competition among algae is important to control strategies for bloom formation and outbreaks in freshwater ecosystems. In this study, we demonstrate that the cyanobacterium Microcystis aeruginosa PCC7820 and the green alga Quadrigula chodatii FACHB-1080 exhibit a strong(More)
Chloroplasts play an essential role in plant growth and development through manipulating photosynthesis and the production of hormones and metabolites. Although many genes or regulators involved in chloroplast biogenesis and development have been isolated and characterized, identification of novel components is still lacking. We isolated a rice (Oryza(More)
BACKGROUND As a well-characterized key player in various signal transduction networks, extracellular-signal-regulated kinase (ERK1/2) has been widely implicated in the development of many malignancies. We previously found that Leucine-rich repeat containing 4 (LRRC4) was a tumor suppressor and a negative regulator of the ERK/MAPK pathway in glioma(More)
Osteosarcoma (OS) is the most common primary bone malignancy with a poor prognosis for all races and both sexes. In this study, we found that miR-381 is a positive prognosis factor for OS patients that OS patients with a low expression of miR-381 had a longer survival time after surgical intervention, and miR-381 expression promotes MG-63 cell proliferation(More)
Regulatory T (Treg) cells are a group of cells that are heterogeneous in origin and in functional activity. Treg cells comprise a necessary balance to adaptive immune responses. As key regulators of self-tolerance, Treg cells have been involved in a series of pathologic processes and considered as therapeutic targets. Here, we summarize recent research(More)
Bacillus velezensis is a heterotypic synonym of B. methylotrophicus, B. amyloliquefaciens subsp. plantarum, and Bacillus oryzicola, and has been used to control plant fungal diseases. In order to fully understand the genetic basis of antimicrobial capacities, we did a complete genome sequencing of the endophytic B. velezensis strain CC09. Genes tightly(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the expression of recombinant Hepatitis B virus (HBV) in normal human glomerular mesangial cells (NHMC) and its effect on cell apoptosis. Cell transfection was conducted by the liposome method. The levels of HBsAg and HBeAg in the culture supernatant were detected by electrochemiluminescence. Morphological changes(More)
