Recently, proteolipid protein 1 (PLP1) has been identified as downregulated in schizophrenia by quantitative PCR and other technologies. In this work we attempted to investigate the role of PLP1 in the etiology of schizophrenia using a family based association study in 487 Chinese Han family trios. The TDT for allelic association demonstrated that, in male,(More)
Zebra disease, which is caused by Phytophthora nicotianae, is a serious global threat to the main cultivar Agave hybrid No. 11648 (H.11648). This disease requires a long period to obtain anti-P. nicotianae variants by crossbreeding, given that 10 years are needed for this plant to bloom. Therefore, transgenic technology could be useful for the production of(More)
Stylosanthes sp. is the most important forage legume in tropical areas worldwide. Stylosanthes anthracnose, which is mainly caused by Colletotrichum gloeosporioides, is a globally severe disease in stylo production. Little progress has been made in anthracnose molecular pathogenesis research. In this study, Agrobacterium tumefaciens-mediated transformation(More)
Sisal is the most important fiber crop in tropical and subtropical areas in China and the world. Zebra disease is a serious threat to the main cultivar Agave hybrid No.11648 (H.11648) worldwide. To select germplasm materials with zebra disease resistance for breeding, the fluorescent amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) technique was used to make a(More)
Alligator weed, Alternanthera philoxeroides (Mart.) Grisb, is an amphibious plant with long thick fleshy roots that develop from adventitious roots under drought conditions. To clone differentially-expressed genes from the roots of A. philoxeroides we applied both mRNA differential display and rapid amplification of cDNA ends techniques. A cryptogein-like(More)

Sex chromosomes evolved from autosomes many times across the eukaryote phylogeny. Several models have been proposed to explain this transition, some involving male and female sterility mutations linked in a region of suppressed recombination between X and Y (or Z/W, U/V) chromosomes. Comparative and experimental analysis of a reference genome assembly for a(More)
