The recently identified Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) causes severe and fatal acute respiratory illness in humans. However, no prophylactic and therapeutic agents specifically against MERS-CoV are currently available. Entry of MERS-CoV into target cells depends on binding of the receptor binding domain (RBD) of the viral envelope(More)
Understanding the mechanism of protective antibody recognition against highly pathogenic avian influenza A virus H5N1 in humans is critical for the development of effective therapies and vaccines. Here we report the crystal structure of three H5-specific human monoclonal antibodies bound to the globular head of hemagglutinin (HA) with distinct epitope(More)
Flowering, which plays a crucial role in the growth and development of flowering plants, is a crucial point from vegetative growth to reproductive growth. The goal of this study was to examine the differences between the transcriptomes of the Chinese cabbage mutant pdm and the corresponding wild-type line ‘FT’. We performed transcriptome analysis on mRNA(More)
Mutants are ideal for studying physiological processes. The leaves of Chinese cabbage are a major place for photosynthesis, and the mutation of these leaves may directly affect the rate of plant growth and development, thus influencing the formation of its leafy head. We characterized a slow-growing mutant, which was designated as drm. The drm exhibited(More)
Female-sterile mutants are ideal materials for studying pistil development in plants. Here, we identified a female-sterile mutant fsm in Chinese cabbage. This mutant, which exhibited stable inheritance, was derived from Chinese cabbage DH line 'FT' using a combination of isolated microspore culture and ethyl methanesulfonate mutagenesis. Compared with the(More)
A stably inherited petal degeneration mutant pdm of the Chinese cabbage was obtained from its wild-type ‘FT’ by radiation treatment (60Co γ-rays) and isolated microspore culture. Petals of the pdm mutant were observed to be shriveled, degenerated, not fully expanded, and darker at the flowering stage than those of ‘FT.’ The pdm mutant phenotype was found to(More)
A new method for generation and screening Chinese cabbage mutants was employed in this study. In order to quickly obtain homozygous mutants in Chinese cabbage, isolated microspore culturing and ethyl methanesulfonate mutagenesis were performed on a doubled haploid line. Microspores were treated with different concentrations (0.04, 0.08, 0.12 %, v/v) of(More)
