Foxtail millet (Setaria italica), a member of the Poaceae grass family, is an important food and fodder crop in arid regions and has potential for use as a C(4) biofuel. It is a model system for other biofuel grasses, including switchgrass and pearl millet. We produced a draft genome (∼423 Mb) anchored onto nine chromosomes and annotated 38,801 genes. Key(More)
Closely located at the tumor suppressor locus 16q22.1, CKLF-like MARVEL transmembrane domain-containing member 3 and 4 (CMTM3 and CMTM4) encode two CMTM family proteins, which link chemokines and the transmembrane-4 superfamily. In contrast to the broad expression of both CMTM3 and CMTM4 in normal human adult tissues, only CMTM3 is silenced or(More)
Ceftazidime-avibactam, aztreonam-avibactam, and comparators were tested by reference broth microdilution against 372 nonrepetitive Gram-negative bacilli (346 unselected plus 26 selected meropenem-nonsusceptible Enterobacteriaceae isolates) collected from 11 teaching hospitals in China in 2011 and 2012. Meropenem-nonsusceptible isolates produced(More)
Hypervirulent Klebsiella pneumoniae (hvKP) is traditionally defined by hypermucoviscosity, but data based on genetic background are limited. Antimicrobial-resistant hvKP has been increasingly reported but has not yet been systematically studied. K. pneumoniae isolates from bloodstream infections, hospital-acquired pneumonia, and intra-abdominal infections(More)
Signal-mediated protein transport through the nuclear pore complex is of considerable interest in the field of molecular pharmaceutics. Nuclear localization signals can be used to target genes/antisense delivery systems to the nucleus Studying nuclear export is useful in enhancing the expression and the efficiency of action, of these therapeutic agents. The(More)
Progesterone receptors (PR) are ligand-activated transcription factors that modulate transcription by activating genes. There are two isoforms of PR, PRA and PRB. In most cell contexts, the PRA isoform is a repressor of the PRB isoform. Without hormone induction, PRA is mostly located in the nucleus whereas PRB distributes both in the nucleus and in the(More)
Steroid hormone receptors (SHRs), such as glucocorticoid receptors (GR) and progesterone receptors (PR), are shuttling proteins that undergo continuous nuclear import and export. Various mechanisms have been proposed to explain the localization of SHRs. It has been suggested that the ligand-binding domain (LBD) of SHRs is important in determining the(More)
In this contribution we demonstrate a method of synthesizing a hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) thin film by ambient pressure chemical vapor deposition on polycrystalline Ni films. Depending on the growth conditions, the thickness of the obtained h-BN film is between ∼5 and 50 nm. The h-BN grows continuously on the entire Ni surface and the region with(More)
The CKLF-like MARVEL transmembrane domain containing 3 (CMTM3) gene is a novel tumor suppressor with frequent epigenetic inactivation. In this study, we showed the role played by CMTM3 in gastric cancer cells as a tumor suppressor gene, and examined the correlation between CMTM3 expression and clinicopathological parameters using immunohistochemistry in(More)
In recent years there have been many breakthroughs in two-dimensional (2D) nanomaterials, among which the transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) attract significant attention owing to their unusual properties associated with their strictly defined dimensionalities. TMD materials with a generalized formula of MX2, where M is a transition metal and X is a(More)
