BACKGROUND Altered expression of micro(mi)RNAs has been shown to be associated with tumorigenesis and tumor progression. The expression of phosphatase and tensin homolog (PTEN) plays an important role in glioma and is regarded as a prognostic marker of glioma patients. The goal of this study was to investigate the function of lethal (let)-7a miRNA in glioma(More)
Self-incompatibility (SI) is under genetic control and prevents inbreeding depression in angiosperms. SI mechanisms are quite complicated and still poorly understood in many plants. Tea (Camellia sinensis L.) belonging to the family of Theaceae, exhibits high levels of SI and high heterozygosity. Uncovering the molecular basis of SI of the tea plant may(More)
Tea (Camellia sinensis L.) is a popular world beverage, and propagation of tea plants chiefly depends on the formation of adventitious roots in cuttings. To better understand potential mechanisms involved in adventitious root formation, we performed transcriptome analysis of single nodal cuttings of C. sinensis treated with or without indole-3-butyric acid(More)
Tea plant (Camellia sinensis) is a major beverage crop across the world. To uncover the genetic controls of agronomic traits and facilitate marker-assisted breeding (MAB) in tea plant, we constructed a saturated SSR-based linkage map using an F1 population derived from the crossing of ‘Longjin43’ × ‘Baihaozao’. A total of 483 SSR markers, consisting of 117(More)
