The complete sequence of the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) of the damsel bug, Alloeorhynchus bakeri, has been completed and annotated in this study. It represents the first sequenced mitochondrial genome of heteropteran family Nabidae. The circular genome is 15, 851 bp in length with an A+T content of 73.5%, contains the typical 37 genes that are arranged in(More)
Despite progress in identifying molecular drivers of cancer, it has been difficult to translate this knowledge into new therapies, because many of the causal proteins cannot be inhibited by conventional small molecule therapeutics. RNA interference (RNAi), which uses small RNAs to inhibit gene expression, provides a promising alternative to reach(More)
Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans is a Gram-negative, acidophilic, and chemolithotrophic bacterium that is active in bioleaching. The leaching efficacy is directly influenced by the biomass changes of this specie in bioleaching microbial community. In order to perform a simple and sensitive assay on A. ferrooxidans from mixed strains in this process, a novel(More)
An extremely acidophilic sulfur-oxidizing bacterium was isolated from an industrial-scale bioheap of the Zijinshan copper mine and was named ZJJN. A tuft of flagella and a layer of thick capsule outside the cell envelope were clearly observed under transmission electron microscopy (TEM), which might be closely related to the extremely acid-proof capacity of(More)
The plant bug, Nesidiocoris tenuis (Hemiptera: Miridae), is one of the most thermophilous dicyphines in agroecosystems and is widely distributed in China. Little is known regarding the genetic structure of N. tenuis and the effect of historical climatic fluctuations on N. tenuis populations. We analyzed partial sequences of three mitochondrial(More)
The aim of the present study was to observe the performance of Ti-25Nb alloys with various porosities as femoral stem prostheses in a rabbit model, thus providing basic experimental evidence for the development of porous pros-theses. The porous Ti-25Nb alloy prostheses were designed according to the morphology of the medullary cavity. These prostheses were(More)
In previous study, two extremely acidophilic strains Acidithiobacillus thiooxidans ZJJN-3 (collection site: bioleaching leachate) and ZJJN-5 (collection site: bioleaching wastewater) were isolated from a typical industrial bio-heap in China. Here, we unraveled the potential acid-tolerance components of ZJJN-3 by comparing the physiological differences with(More)
A sulfur removing bacterium named JNU-2 was isolated from an industrial anaerobic sludge pool. Its 16S rRNA phylogeny showed high homology to the species Thermithiobacillus tepidarius. The strain Thermithiobacillus tepidarius JNU-2 was initially cultivated for removing sulfide from sulfate-containing waste water for recycling sulfur. Thiosulfate removal and(More)
Internal Ribosome Entry Site (IRES) sequences have been widely used to link the expression of two independent proteins on the same mRNA transcript. Genes encoding fluorescent proteins or drug-resistance enzymes are usually placed downstream of IRES, serving as expression indicators or selection markers. In biological applications where the upstream(More)
