Biochemical and functional analysis of CTR1, a protein kinase that negatively regulates ethylene signaling in Arabidopsis.
The results suggest that CTR1 interacts with ETR1 in vivo, and that this association is required to turn off the ethylene-signaling pathway. Expand
Genetic evidence supports demic diffusion of Han culture
It is shown, by systematically analysing Y-chromosome and mitochondrial DNA variation in Han populations, that the pattern of the southward expansion of Han culture is consistent with the demic diffusion model, and that males played a larger role than females in this expansion. Expand
Cross-host evolution of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus in palm civet and human.
The ratio of nonsynonymous/synonymous nucleotide substitution in palm civets collected 1 yr apart from different geographic locations is very high, suggesting a rapid evolving process of viral proteins in civet as well, much like their adaptation in the human host in the early 2002-2003 epidemic.

Defective in Tapetal development and function 1 is essential for anther development and tapetal function for microspore maturation in Arabidopsis.
In Arabidopsis, the tapetum plays important roles in anther development by providing enzymes for callose dissolution and materials for pollen-wall formation, and by supplying nutrients for pollenExpand

It is concluded that modern humans have lived in South China for a long time, inside-ethnogenesis was a rather late event, and frequent inmixing was taking place throughout. Expand
Transcription factor AtMYB103 is required for anther development by regulating tapetum development, callose dissolution and exine formation in Arabidopsis.
It is implicate that AtMYB103 plays an important role in tapetum development, callose dissolution and exine formation in A. thaliana anthers. Expand
Analyses of genetic structure of Tibeto-Burman populations reveals sex-biased admixture in southern Tibeto-Burmans.
The genetic structure of the extant southern Tibeto-Burman (STB) populations were primarily formed by two parental groups: northern immigrants and native southerners, with a bias between male and female lineages. Expand

It is shown that, in contrast to the Taiwan homeland hypothesis, the Island Southeast Asians do not have a Taiwan origin based on their paternal lineages, and that a super-phylum, which includes Taiwan aborigines, Daic, and Malayo-Polynesians, is genetically educible. Expand
Refined Geographic Distribution of the Oriental ALDH2*504Lys (nee 487Lys) Variant
It is concluded that ALDH2*504Lys was carried by Han Chinese as they spread throughout East Asia, and occurs in most areas of China, Japan, Korea, Mongolia, and Indochina with frequencies gradually declining radially from Southeast China. Expand

The results indicate that the Hmong populations had experienced more contact with the northern East Asians, a finding consistent with historical evidence. Expand
