Analysis of a genome-wide set of gene deletions in the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe
We report the construction and analysis of 4,836 heterozygous diploid deletion mutants covering 98.4% of the fission yeast genome providing a tool for studying eukaryotic biology. Comprehensive geneExpand

Application of comparative genomics in developing molecular markers tightly linked to the virus resistance gene Rsv4 in soybean.
The Rsv4 gene confers resistance to all the known strain groups of soybean mosaic virus in soybean (Glycine max (L.) Merr.). To construct a fine genetic map near Rsv4 in soybean, we employed aExpand

Immuno-stimulating effect of the endo-polysaccharide produced by submerged culture of Inonotus obliquus.
Inonotus obliquus BELYU1102 was selected from 12 different strains of Inonotus as a producer of immuno-stimulating polysaccharide. After a batch fermentation of I. obliquus BELYU1102 was carried outExpand

Dexamethasone inhibits IL-1β gene expression in LPS-stimulated RAW 264.7 cells by blocking NF-κB/Rel and AP-1 activation
Abstract In the present study, the mechanism by which dexamethasone (DEX) inhibited IL-1β gene expression in bacterial lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-activated RAW 264.7 cells was investigated. TheExpand

Costunolide inhibits interleukin-1beta expression by down-regulation of AP-1 and MAPK activity in LPS-stimulated RAW 264.7 cells.
Costunolide, a sesquiterpene lactone isolated from the root of Saussurea lappa Clarke, is known to have a variety of biological activities, including anti-carcinogenic and anti-fungal activities.Expand

Molecular authentication of Panax ginseng species by RAPD analysis and PCR-RFLP.
In order to develop convenient and reproducible methods for the identification of ginseng drugs at a DNA level, randomly amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) and PCR-restriction fragment lengthExpand

Genetic analysis of genes controlling natural variation of seed coat and flower colors in soybean.
Soybean exhibits natural variation in flower and seed coat colors via the deposition of various anthocyanin pigments in the respective tissues. Although pigmentation in seeds or flowers has been wellExpand

Dexamethasone inhibits IL-1 beta gene expression in LPS-stimulated RAW 264.7 cells by blocking NF-kappa B/Rel and AP-1 activation.
In the present study, the mechanism by which dexamethasone (DEX) inhibited IL-1beta gene expression in bacterial lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-activated RAW 264.7 cells was investigated. The decrease inExpand

Toll-like receptor-mediated activation of B cells and macrophages by polysaccharide isolated from cell culture of Acanthopanax senticosus.
We investigated the mechanism of the immunomodulatory action of polysaccharide (ASP) isolated from a cell culture of Acanthopanax senticosus. ASP was found to directly increase the proliferation andExpand

Role of intracellular calcium as a priming signal for the induction of nitric oxide synthesis in murine peritoneal macrophages
Because the role of intracellular Ca2+ in the two‐signal process for the induction of nitric oxide (NO) synthesis is controversial, this study was undertaken to examine the role of Ca2+ in theExpand
