Cadmium (Cd) is toxic to plant cells. Under Cd exposure, the plant displayed leaf chlorosis, which is a typical symptom of iron (Fe) deficiency. Interactions of Cd with Fe have been reported. However, the molecular mechanisms of Cd-Fe interactions are not well understood. Here, we showed that FER-like Deficiency Induced Transcripition Factor (FIT),(More)
The extremely thermophilic anaerobic archaeon strain, HJ21, was isolated from a deep-sea hydrothermal vent, could produce hyperthermophilic α-amylase, and later was identified as Thermococcus from morphological, biochemical, and physiological characteristics and the 16S ribosomal RNA gene sequence. The extracellular thermostable α-amylase produced by strain(More)
Iron is an essential nutrient for plant growth and development, and its absorption is tightly controlled. Under iron limitation, FIT dimerizes with the four Ib bHLH proteins and activates the expression of iron uptake genes. However, how the dimerized complex activates downstream genes remains unclear. Using forward genetics, a low-iron-sensitive mutant was(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the growth inhibition activity of Flammulina velutipes sterol (FVS) against certain human cancer cell lines (gastric SGC and colon LoVo) and to evaluate the optimum microemulsion prescription, as well as the pharmacokinetics of encapsulated FVS. METHODS Molecules present in the FVS isolate were identified by gas chromatography/mass(More)
A cold-adapted α-amylase (ParAmy) gene from Pseudoalteromonas arctica GS230 was cloned, sequenced, and expressed as an N-terminus His-tag fusion protein in E. coli. A recombinant protein was produced and purified with DEAE-sepherose ion exchange chromatography and Ni affinity chromatography. The molecular weight of ParAmy was estimated to be 55 KDa with(More)

BACKGROUND With the rapid development of modern agriculture, high-quality rice production and consumption has become the current urgent demand for the development of rice production. RESULT In this paper, the effects of late-stage nitrogen fertilizer application on rice quality were studied under the same genetic background, Wx near-isogenic lines were(More)
The objective of this study was to prepare a 72 h-release formulation of silybin (72 h-SLB) using a combination of solid dispersion, gel matrix and porous silica nanoparticles (PSNs) and to investigate the in vitro/in vivo correlations (IVIVCs). The results of scanning electron microscopy and N(2) adsorption demonstrated that empty PSNs possessed a(More)
Osteoarthritis (OA), the most prevalent form of arthritis that results from breakdown of joint cartilage and underlying bone, has been viewed as a chronic condition manifested by persistence of inflammatory responses and infiltration of lymphocytes. Regulation of the inflammatory responses in synovial fibroblasts might be useful to prevent the development(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to fabricate a novel nano-bioceramics incorporated lysozyme poly (d, l-lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA) microsphere. METHODS The nano-bioceramics was used as a biodegradable and sustained-release antacid to stabilize the lysozyme in the drug release process. First, the nano-bioceramics were prepared by sol-gel method,(More)
