Context sequences of translation initiation codon in plants
In this survey of 5074 plant genes for their AUG context sequences, purines are present at the _3 and +4 positions in about 80% of the sequences. Although this observation is similar to theExpand

Persistent whole-chromosome aneuploidy is generally associated with nascent allohexaploid wheat
Allopolyploidization has been a driving force in plant evolution. Formation of common wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) represents a classic example of successful speciation via allopolyploidy.Expand

The angiogenic function of nucleolin is mediated by vascular endothelial growth factor and nonmuscle myosin.
Nucleolin, originally described as a nuclear protein, was recently found to be expressed on the surface of endothelial cells during angiogenic. However, the functions of cell-surface nucleolin inExpand

Angiomotin binding-induced activation of Merlin/NF2 in the Hippo pathway
The tumor suppressor Merlin/NF2 functions upstream of the core Hippo pathway kinases Lats1/2 and Mst1/2, as well as the nuclear E3 ubiquitin ligase CRL4DCAF1. Numerous mutations of Merlin have beenExpand

Nucleolin is a receptor that mediates antiangiogenic and antitumor activity of endostatin.
The exact molecular mechanism of how endostatin inhibits angiogenesis and tumor growth remains uncharacterized. Here, we report that endostatin specifically binds to the cell surface nucleolin withExpand

Evolution of the BBAA Component of Bread Wheat during Its History at the Allohexaploid Level[C][W][OPEN]
The extracted tetraploid wheat (ETW) containing the BBAA subgenomes of hexaploid bread wheat has a stabilized karyotype but anomalous phenotypes. Genome-wide comparisons between ETW and naturalExpand

Phosphotransfer site of the chemotaxis-specific protein kinase CheA as revealed by NMR.
Bacterial chemotaxis involves autophosphorylation of a histidine kinase and transfer of the phosphoryl group to response regulators to control flagellar rotation and receptor adaptation. TheExpand

Histone methyltransferase SMYD3 promotes MRTF-A-mediated transactivation of MYL9 and migration of MCF-7 breast cancer cells.
Myocardin-related transcription factor-A (MRTF-A) is a Rho signal-responsive transcriptional coactivator of serum response factor (SRF). Recent studies indicated that MRTF-A might be an importantExpand
