The transformer (tra) gene appears to act as the genetic switch that promotes female development by interaction with the transformer2 (tra-2) gene in several dipteran species including the Medfly, housefly and Drosophila melanogaster. In this study, we describe the isolation, expression and function of tra and tra-2 in the economically important(More)
Nanocarriers are widely used for delivering drugs to tumors and their development is progressing steadily. In this study, a pH sensitive mesoporous silica nanocarrier, RuNHC@MSNs-CTS-Biotin (CTS = chitosan), is developed for the targeted delivery and controlled release of a ruthenium(ii) N-heterocyclic carbene (RuNHC) complex. The RuNHC@MSNs-CTS-Biotin(More)
Zoledronic acid (ZL) has been used widely for treating skeletal diseases because of its high potency in inhibiting bone resorption. A detailed understanding of its physicochemical characteristics may be of great significance in both medicinal chemistry and structural biology for the design of novel bisphosphonates with higher activity. In the present work,(More)
Intensive agricultural system with high input of fertilizer results in high agricultural output. However, excessive fertilization in intensive agricultural system has great potential to cause nitrate and heavy metal accumulation in soil, which is adverse to human health. The main objective of the present study was to observe the effects of intercropping and(More)
Reverse transcription quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (RT-qPCR) is the sensitive method to quantify the expression levels of target genes on the basis of endogenous control. An appropriate reference gene set for normalization is essential for reliable results. The ghost moth, Thitarodes armoricanus, a host species of a medicinal fungus,(More)
Technetium-99m-based radiopharmaceuticals have been used widely as diagnostic agents in the nuclear medicine. Chlorambucil (CLB) as one typical alkylating drug exhibits excellent inhibition effects against many human malignancies. To develop and explore a novel potential imaging agent for early diagnosis of tumors, tricarbonyl technetium-99m and rhenium(More)
