Turnip crinkle virus (TCV) inoculation onto TCV-resistant Arabidopsis leads to a hypersensitive response (HR) controlled by the dominant gene HRT. HRT is a member of the class of resistance (R) genes that contain a leucine zipper, a nucleotide binding site, and leucine-rich repeats. The chromosomal position of HRT and its homology to resistance gene RPP8(More)
OBJECTIVE Endothelin-mediated vasoconstriction has been implicated in the pathophysiology of cerebral vasospasm after aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). Endothelin-1, the most potent vasoconstrictor peptide of the endothelin family, is synthesized initially as a large prepropeptide that requires multiple steps of post-translational processing for(More)
An effective procedure for purifying the expression product of Populus euphratica constitutive photomorphogenesis and dwarf (PeCPD) gene in Escherichia coli had been developed. The product, which is a cytochrome P450 monooxygenase, participating in plant brassinosteroid (BR) biosynthesis was deduced. This method is based on the combination of differential(More)
To investigate systemic diseases and ocular problems among children with developmental delay, forty-one children (28 boys and 13 girls with a mean age of 3.53 +/- 2.25 y/o) were enrolled in this study. In addition to ocular examinations, we used centrality, steadiness, fixation and flash visual evoked potentials (VEPs) tests on all of the children. We found(More)
