Genetic diversity and geographic differentiation in endangered Ammopiptanthus (Leguminosae) populations in desert regions of northwest China as revealed by ISSR analysis.
BACKGROUND AND AIMS The desert legume genus Ammopiptanthus comprises two currently endangered species, A. mongolicus and A. nanus. Genetic variability and genetic differentiation between the twoExpand

Mice with Alopecia, Osteoporosis, and Systemic Amyloidosis Due to Mutation in Zdhhc13, a Gene Coding for Palmitoyl Acyltransferase
Protein palmitoylation has emerged as an important mechanism for regulating protein trafficking, stability, and protein–protein interactions; however, its relevance to disease processes is not clear.Expand

Progress in parasitic plant biology: host selection and nutrient transfer.
Host range varies widely among species of parasitic plants. Parasitic plants realize host selection through induction by chemical molecular signals, including germination stimulants andExpand

Electrostatic funneling for precise nanoparticle placement: a route to wafer-scale integration.
We demonstrate a large-scale placement of nanoparticles through a scheme named "electrostatic funneling", in which charged nanoparticles are guided by an electrostatic potential energy gradient andExpand

Spontaneous interspecific hybridization and patterns of pollen dispersal in ex situ populations of a tree species (Sinojackia xylocarpa) that is extinct in the wild.
For endangered plants interspecific hybridization occurring in ex situ collections may lead to failure of reintroduction actions. We used Sinojackia xylocarpa, a well documented Chinese endemicExpand

Development and characterization of microsatellite markers for an endangered shrub, Ammopiptanthus mongolicus (Leguminosae) and cross-species amplification in Ammopiptanthus nanus
We developed 11 polymorphic microsatellite markers for an endangered shrub Ammopiptanthus mongolicus using the Fast Isolation by AFLP of Sequences Containing repeats protocol. Polymorphism of eachExpand

Fine-scale spatial genetic structure and gene flow in a small, fragmented population of Sinojackia rehderiana (Styracaceae), an endangered tree species endemic to China.
Populations of Sinojackia rehderiana are highly threatened and have small and scattered distribution due to habitat fragmentation and human activities. Understanding changes in genetic diversity, theExpand
