Characterization of a sub-family of Arabidopsis genes with the SPX domain reveals their diverse functions in plant tolerance to phosphorus starvation.
Four genes of Arabidopsis (At5g20150, At2g26660, At2g45130 and At5g15330) encoding no conservative region other than an SPX domain (SYG1, Pho81 and XPR1) were named AtSPX1-AtSPX4. The variousExpand

Psoriasis genome-wide association study identifies susceptibility variants within LCE gene cluster at 1q21
We report the first large genome-wide association study (GWAS) in a Chinese population to identify susceptibility variants for psoriasis using a two-stage case-control design. In the first stage, weExpand

Involvement of OsSPX1 in phosphate homeostasis in rice.
Arabidopsis thaliana SPX (SYG/PHO81/XPR1) domain genes have recently been shown to be involved in the phosphate (Pi) signaling pathway. We show here that a rice (Oryza sativa) SPX gene, OsSPX1, isExpand

Regulation of OsSPX1 and OsSPX3 on expression of OsSPX domain genes and Pi-starvation signaling in rice.
The rice (Oryza sativa L.) genome contains at least six genes exclusively with an SPX (SYG1/PHO81/XPR1) domain at the N-terminal, designated as OsSPX1-6. Here we report the diverse expressionExpand

Effects of repetitive multiple freeze-thaw cycles on the biomechanical properties of human flexor digitorum superficialis and flexor pollicis longus tendons.
BACKGROUND Deep fresh freezing is the most commonly used preservation method for allografts, which is followed by a routine procedure before application-the thawing of the grafts. This work was toExpand

The effects of co-delivery of BMSC-affinity peptide and rhTGF-β1 from coaxial electrospun scaffolds on chondrogenic differentiation.
Electrospinning is a promising technology for the fabrication of scaffolds in cartilage tissue engineering. Two other important elements for tissue engineering are seed cells and bioactive factors.Expand

A functional biphasic biomaterial homing mesenchymal stem cells for in vivo cartilage regeneration.
Cartilage regeneration after trauma is still a great challenge for clinicians and researchers due to many reasons, such as joint load-bearing, synovial movement and the paucity of endogenous repairExpand

Transplantation of allogenic chondrocytes with chitosan hydrogel-demineralized bone matrix hybrid scaffold to repair rabbit cartilage injury.
Cartilage tissue engineering is the hotspot of cartilage repair. The allogenic chondrocytes appear to be a promising source of seed cells in cartilage tissue engineering. In this study, we aimed toExpand

Silencing of miR-101 Prevents Cartilage Degradation by Regulating Extracellular Matrix–related Genes in a Rat Model of Osteoarthritis
Osteoarthritis (OA) is a common, degenerative joint disease characterized by articular cartilage degradation. Currently, clinical trials based on microRNA therapy have been performed to treat variousExpand
