The Brassica oleracea genome reveals the asymmetrical evolution of polyploid genomes
Polyploidization has provided much genetic variation for plant adaptive evolution, but the mechanisms by which the molecular evolution of polyploid genomes establishes genetic architecture underlyingExpand

Genome triplication drove the diversification of Brassica plants
The genus Brassica belongs to the plant family Brassicaceae, which includes many important crop species that are used as oilseed, condiments, or vegetables throughout the world. Brassica plantsExpand

Comprehensive analysis of RNA-seq data reveals the complexity of the transcriptome in Brassica rapa
BackgroundThe species Brassica rapa (2n=20, AA) is an important vegetable and oilseed crop, and serves as an excellent model for genomic and evolutionary research in Brassica species. With theExpand

Inhibition of in vitro enteric neuronal development by endothelin-3: mediation by endothelin B receptors.
The terminal colon is aganglionic in mice lacking endothelin-3 or its receptor, endothelin B. To analyze the effects of endothelin-3/endothelin B on the differentiation of enteric neurons, E11-13Expand

Above-ground woody carbon sequestration measured from tree rings is coherent with net ecosystem productivity at five eddy-covariance sites.
• Attempts to combine biometric and eddy-covariance (EC) quantifications of carbon allocation to different storage pools in forests have been inconsistent and variably successful in the past. • WeExpand

SLX4 Assembles a Telomere Maintenance Toolkit by Bridging Multiple Endonucleases with Telomeres
Summary SLX4 interacts with several endonucleases to resolve structural barriers in DNA metabolism. SLX4 also interacts with telomeric protein TRF2 in human cells. The molecular mechanism of theseExpand

Subgenome parallel selection is associated with morphotype diversification and convergent crop domestication in Brassica rapa and Brassica oleracea
Brassica species, including crops such as cabbage, turnip and oilseed, display enormous phenotypic variation. Brassica genomes have all undergone a whole-genome triplication (WGT) event with unknownExpand

Structural basis for protein-RNA recognition in telomerase
Telomerase is a large ribonucleoprotein complex minimally composed of a catalytic telomerase reverse transcriptase (TERT) and an RNA component (TR) that provides the template for telomeric DNAExpand

Development of the interstitial cell of Cajal: origin, Kit dependence and neuronal and nonneuronal sources of Kit ligand
Kit is a marker for interstitial cells of Cajal (ICC). ICCs interact with enteric neurons and are essential for gastrointestinal motility. The roles of neural crest‐derived cells, neurons, Kit, andExpand

Structural and biochemical studies of human lysine methyltransferase Smyd3 reveal the important functional roles of its post-SET and TPR domains and the regulation of its activity by DNA binding
The SET- and MYND-domain containing (Smyd) proteins constitute a special subfamily of the SET-containing lysine methyltransferases. Here we present the structure of full-length human Smyd3 in complexExpand
