Colony enlargement in Phaeocystis globosa has been considered as an induced defense strategy that reduces its susceptibility to grazers, but allocation costs inflicted by this plastic morphological defense are poorly understood. We conducted experiments in which P. globosa cultures were exposed to chemical cues from copepods, ciliates and heterotrophic(More)
Plant height is one of the determinants that influence rice plant architecture and grain yield. Identification of useful novel genes related to plant height is necessary for breeding high-yield rice. In this study, C33084, a backcross introgression line derived from a  japonica cultivar (Balilla) as the recurrent parent and an indica cultivar (Dular) as the(More)
Elongate loach (Leptobotia elongate) is a threatened fish species endemic to the Yangtze River in China. A first set of 22 polymorphism microsatellite loci isolated from this species was characterized. The number of alleles, observed and expected heterozygosity ranged from 2 to 12, from 0.2667 to 1.000 and from 0.2391 to 0.9011, respectively. Seven loci(More)
To establish an in-house virtual protein database that can be employed in proteomic research on non-model plants. A total of 87,430 unigenes were obtained through transcriptome sequencing from onion roots. Of these, 24,305 unigenes were annotated and their nucleotide sequences of coding regions were translated into amino acid sequences. The corresponding(More)
Caspase-8 (encoded by the CASP-8 gene) is crucial in generating cell death signals and eliminating potentially malignant cells. Genetic variation in CASP8 may affect susceptibility to cancer. The CASP-8-652 6N ins/del (rs3834129) polymorphism has been previously reported to influence the progression to several cancers. However, the overall reported studies(More)
Leptobotia rubrilaris is a threatened fish species of the Yangtze River in China. A first set of sixteen polymorphism microsatellite loci isolated from this species was characterized. The number of alleles, observed and expected heterozygosity ranged from 2 to 8, 0.1667 to 1.000 and 0.1587 to 0.8342, respectively. Two loci significantly deviated from(More)
Rhinogobio cylindricus is an endemic freshwater fish species with relevant commercial importance in the Yangtze River, China. Nineteen polymorphic microsatellite loci were developed by fast isolation by AFLP of sequences containing repeats (FIASCO) protocol. The number of alleles, observed and expected heterozygosity ranged from 2 to 6, from 0.3333 to 1.000(More)
