Possible factors responsible for the toxicity of Cochlodinium polykrikoides, a red tide phytoplankton.
The results suggest that multiple factors may be responsible for the toxic mechanism of C. polykrikoides, and no significant increase in O(2)(-) generation by C. marina is observed. Expand
Microarray analysis of apple gene expression engaged in early fruit development
The data presented suggested that apple fruit development depends on the tight regulation of the expression of a number of genes, which are also expressed in other organs. Expand
Expression of MdCAS1 and MdCAS2, encoding apple β-cyanoalanine synthase homologs, is concomitantly induced during ripening and implicates MdCASs in the possible role of the cyanide detoxification in
RNA gel-blot studies and in vitro enzyme activity assay results suggest that MdCAS may play a role in cyanide detoxification in ripening apple fruits. Expand
Structure and expression of MdFBCP1, encoding an F-box-containing protein 1, during Fuji apple (Malus domestica Borkh.) fruit ripening
Results suggest that MdFBCP1 indeed functions as an F-box-containing protein and participates in the formation of SCF complex, which acts as E3 Ub ligase, and may play an important role in the ripening of Fuji apple fruits. Expand
Black rice extract protected HepG2 cells from oxidative stress-induced cell death via ERK1/2 and Akt activation
The results suggest that activation of ERKs and Akt pathway might be involved in the cytoprotective effect of BRE against oxidative stress. Expand
Differences in cold hardiness, carbohydrates, dehydrins and related gene expressions under an experimental deacclimation and reacclimation in Prunus persica.
The results indicate that recent repeated warm periods may cause premature deacclimation in the early spring, and that more cold-tolerant cultivar may be more resilient to freezing injury caused by unstable temperature conditions. Expand
Carbohydrate Changes in Peach Shoot Tissues and Their Relationship to Cold Acclimation and Deacclimation
This poster presents a probabilistic procedure to identify the fruit stem cell types and establish the phytochemical properties of fruit stem cells using a variety of methods. Expand
Identification Markers and Phylogenetic Analysis Using RAPD in Asian Pears (Pyrus spp.)
Operon 10-mer primer kit A was useful to analyze pear genome in that nine primers among preliminarily selected 18 primers were in A series and among the selected primers, 14 primers contained 60% GC composition and produced distinct and reproducible bands at 36 annealing temperature. Expand
Effects of Foliar Spray of Calcium Hydroxide on Shoot Growth and Fruit Quality in 'Daewol' Peach (Prunus persica Batsch)
The effects of foliar spray of calcium hydroxide () during fruit growth period was investigated by changes of the shoot growth and fruit quality in 'Daewol' peach (Prunus persica). Since foliar sprayExpand
