We previously reported that LeMYB1 might be a crucial transcription factor in regulating shikonin formation in Lithospermum erythrorhizon. In this study, by overexpressing LeMYB1 under the control of CaMV35S promoter in L. erythrorhizon hairy roots, we further clarified the role of LeMYB1 in the shikonin formation and its regulation. The(More)
Several studies have shown that curcumin can induce apoptosis and inhibit growth in human tumor cell lines. However, the mechanism is not completely understood yet. The present studies were designed to investigate the effects of curcumin on human A549 lung adenocarcinoma cells lines to better understand its effect on apoptosis and apoptosis-related genes in(More)
The mechanism by which trifluoperazine (TFP) induces apoptosis and inhibits growth in human A549 lung adenocarcinoma cells has not been entirely elucidated. In the present study, we investigated the anticancer mechanism of TFP in vitro using the human A549 lung adenocarcinoma cell line. The results indicate that TFP significantly inhibited the proliferation(More)
Aluminum (Al) toxicity in acidic soils is a major factor restricting crop production. Although the molecular mechanisms of Al responses have been extensively investigated, microRNA (miRNA) mediated differential Al tolerance in different soybean genotypes remains largely unknown. In this study, two soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.] genotypes, Al-tolerant BX10(More)
