Arabidopsis thaliana Protein Interactome Database (AtPID) is an object database that integrates data from several bioinformatics prediction methods and manually collected information from the literature. It contains data relevant to protein-protein interaction, protein subcellular location, ortholog maps, domain attributes and gene regulation. The predicted(More)
Harpin proteins as elicitor derived from plant gram negative bacteria such as Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae (Xoo), Erwinia amylovora induce disease resistance in plants by activating multiple defense responses. However, it is unclear whether phytoalexin production and ROS burst are involved in the disease resistance conferred by the expression of the(More)
Effective management of data is a major issue in genomics. Genomics data consists of highly interrelated information about genes, proteins, patterns, classifications, and interactions. Graph databases, which model graphs or networks of data, seem a natural way to manage genomics data. Graph databases can support visualization of both queries and results by(More)
Caffeine consumption is worldwide. It has been part of our diet for many centuries; indwelled in our foods, drinks, and medicines. It is often perceived as a "legal drug", and though it is known to have detrimental effects on our health, more specifically, disrupt the normal fetal development following excessive maternal intake, much ambiguity still(More)
Worldwide, n-hexane is an organic solvent widely used in numerous industries such as chemical engineering, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industry. 2,5-Hexanedione (2,5-HD) is the main metabolite of n-hexane. It is now gradually recognized that chronic exposure to n-hexane could harm the health of people. Nevertheless, it is still unclear whether or not 2,5-HD(More)
Gestational diabetes is defined as glucose intolerance during pregnancy and it is presented as high blood glucose levels during the onset pregnancy. This condition has an adverse impact on fetal development but the mechanism involved is still not fully understood. In this study, we investigated the effects of high glucose on the developing quail embryo,(More)
To investigate the protective effects of squid ink in chemotherapy, BALB/c mice were used as animal models of injuries induced by cyclophosphamine, a well known chemotherapeutic drug. The mice were randomly divided into five groups with the same number of males and females in each group. At the end of the experiment, animals were sacrificed to investigate(More)
Formation of the neural tube is the morphological hallmark for development of the embryonic central nervous system (CNS). Therefore, neural tube development is a crucial step in the neurulation process. Slit/Robo signaling was initially identified as a chemo-repellent that regulated axon growth cone elongation, but its role in controlling neural tube(More)
