In attempt to improve salt tolerance of alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.) plants, a soybean DREB orthologue, GmDREB1, was introduced into alfalfa plants under the control of Arabidopsis Rd29A promoter. Its incorporation and expression in transgenic plants were confirmed by DNA and RNA gel-blot analyses. The level of salt tolerance of transgenic lines was(More)
A putative vacuolar Na+/H+ antiporter gene (SsNHX1) was isolated from the halophyte Salsola soda using the rapid amplification of cDNA ends method. Highly conserved regions of plant vacuolar Na+/H+ antiporter, including amiloride-binding domain, NHE (Na+/H+ exchange) domain, and 12 transmembrane segments, were found in the deduced amino acid sequence of(More)
In this work, a recently established, novel two-step imprinting strategy combining surface imprinting and scaffold imprinting was applied successfully to prepare a molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) adsorber for immunoglobulin G (IgG). Track-etched polyethylene terephthalate (PET) membranes with previously introduced aliphatic C-Br groups as initiator on(More)
The primary sensory neurons supplying muscle spindles of jaw-closing muscles are unique in that they have their somata in the mesencephalic trigeminal nucleus (MTN) in the brainstem, thereby receiving various synaptic inputs. MTN neurons display bursting upon activation of glutamatergic synaptic inputs while they faithfully relay respective impulses arising(More)
