Rice (Oryza sativa L.) seedlings were grown hydroponically in Hoagland’s nutrient solution under controlled conditions to investigate the effects of NaCl pretreatment on their response to subsequent application of cadmium (Cd) alone and Cd + NaCl combination. The Cd stress caused growth retardation in all plants, significantly reduced pigment content,(More)
Plant microRNAs (miRNAs) play important roles in regulating plant growth, development, and responses to abiotic stresses. In this study, 38 miRNAs (TaMIRs) from wheat (Triticum aestivum L.), 36 from the miRBase database, and two from our previous work were characterized and subjected to an expression pattern analysis under normal conditions and a drought(More)
PURPOSE symptomatic cerebral vasospasm (SCVS) is still lacking in reliable early warning methods and often diagnosed after clinical deterioration of neurological function, making prevention and treatment extremely passive. This study investigates the risk factors relevant to SCVS after subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) in order to provide useful information for(More)
Autophagy has been implicated as a cellular protein degradation process that is used to recycle cytoplasmic components under biotic and abiotic stresses and so restrict programmed cell death (PCD). In this study, we report a novel regulatory mechanism by which NADPH oxidase respiratory burst oxidase homolog D (RBOHD) regulated pathogen-induced autophagy and(More)
Endogenous salicylic acid (SA) functions in plant response to an aluminum stress were assessed. We used different Arabidopsis thaliana genotypes including snc1 with a constitutively high content of SA, sid2 and nahG (transgenic lines) both with a low content of SA, SA insensitive mutant npr1-1, and snc1/nahG (i.e., the nahG expression in the snc1(More)
Grafting is an important cultivation method and recent research on the mechanism of interactions between rootstock nad scion is focused on the long-distance transport of mRNA and small RNAs in the phloem. Among these transportable molecules, NACP gene coding NAM, ATAF1/2, CUC2 (NAC) domain protein might be involved in apical meristem development. Here, we(More)
Experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) is a primary animal model of multiple sclerosis (MS). MS predominantly presents with evidence of lesions in the subcortical periventricular white matter regions of the brain. Research into the pathogenesis of the demyelinating lesions in the brain has been hampered by the fact that conventional models of EAE(More)
Charge dipole moment and spin moment rarely coexist in single-phase bulk materials except in some multiferroics. Despite the progress in the past decade, for most multiferroics their magnetoelectric performance remains poor due to the intrinsic exclusion between charge dipole and spin moment. As an alternative approach, the oxide heterostructures may evade(More)
Concentration-dependent transformation of hormone- and neurotransmitter-induced calcium oscillation is a common phenomenon in diverse types of cells especially of the secretory type. The rodent submandibular acinar cells are an exception to this rule, which show elevated plateau increase in intracellular calcium under all stimulatory concentrations of both(More)
Morphological abnormalities including extra compound eyes, extra heads, and distally duplicated legs were generated in cricket embryos by treating eggs with single doses of either benz[g]isoquinoline-5,10-dione or benzo[h]quinoline-5,6-dione. Slight structural modifications of the molecules resulted in a loss of teratogenic activity, although embryotoxicity(More)
