Endometrial endometrioid carcinomas (EECs) account for >80% of endometrial carcinomas (ECs). Continuous stimulation of the endometrium by estrogen is a risk factor for the tumorigenesis of estrogen receptor (ER) α-positive EEC. MicroRNA-22 (miR-22) has been reported to be implicated in the regulation of various types of cancer and directly targets ERα.(More)
1-Aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylic acid synthase (ACS) and 1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylic acid oxidase (ACO) are encoded by multigene families and are involved in fruit ripening by catalyzing the production of ethylene throughout the development of fruit. However, there are no reports on ACSor ACO genes in mulberry, partly because of the limited molecular(More)
Abscisic acid (ABA) 8′-hydroxylase is the key enzyme in the oxidative catabolism of ABA. CYP707A genes encode (+)-ABA 8′-hydroxylases that are involved in fruit ripening and abiotic stress responses. However, there are limited reports on the functions of CYP707A genes in mulberry. This study analyzed the transcriptional expression of CYP707A genes during(More)
A small, multigene family encodes 4-coumarate:CoA ligases (4CLs) that catalyze the ligation of CoA to hydroxycinnamic acids, a branch point directing metabolites to flavonoid or monolignol pathways. In this study, we characterized four 4CL genes from M. notabilis Genome Database, and cloned four Ma4CL genes from M. atropurpurea cv. Jialing No.40. A(More)
Although ethylene is well known as an essential regulator of fruit development, little work has examined the role ethylene plays in the development and maturation of mulberry (Morus L.) fruit. To study the mechanism of ethylene action during fruit development in this species, we measured the ethylene production, fruit firmness, and soluble solids content(More)
The plant hormone abscisic acid (ABA) plays an important role in fruit development. To analyze the transcriptional regulation of ABA signaling pathway-related genes during mulberry (Morus alba L.) fruit development and ripening, 17 genes participating in ABA signal transduction were isolated from the Morus notabilis genome database, including five MnPYL,(More)

Chalcone synthase (CHS) is the pivotal enzyme that catalyzes the first committed step of the phenylpropanoid pathway leading to flavonoids. Here, five CHS genes were determined in mulberry (Morus atropurpurea Roxb.). Interestingly, phylogenetic analysis tended to group three MaCHSs in the stilbene synthase (STS) family and initially annotated these as(More)
A cellulase gene (KJ700939, CsCelA) from Ciboria shiraiana that is highly expressed during the infection of mulberry fruit was screened by quantitative real-time PCR (qRT-PCR). Using cDNA isolated from infected mulberry fruits as template, the full-length 1170-bp sequence of CsCelA was obtained, which encodes a 390-amino acid protein with a putative signal(More)
Stilbenes have been recognized for their beneficial physiological effects on human health. Stilbene synthase (STS) is the key enzyme of resveratrol biosynthesis and has been studied in numerous plants. Here, four MaSTS genes were isolated and identified in mulberry (Morus atropurpurea Roxb.). The expression levels of MaSTS genes and the accumulation of(More)
