Human utilization of the mulberry-silkworm interaction started at least 5,000 years ago and greatly influenced world history through the Silk Road. Complementing the silkworm genome sequence, here we describe the genome of a mulberry species Morus notabilis. In the 330-Mb genome assembly, we identify 128 Mb of repetitive sequences and 29,338 genes, 60.8% of(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the role of the PPARγ-PI3K/AKT-NO signaling pathway in cardiac hypertrophy induced by high glucose and insulin. METHODS Cardiomyocyte hypertrophy induced by high glucose (25.5 mmol/L) and insulin (0.1 μmol/L) (HGI) was characterized in rat primary cardiomyocytes by measuring the cell surface area, protein content, and atrial(More)
Poplar is not only an important resource for the production of paper, timber and other wood-based products, but it has also emerged as an ideal model system for studying woody plants. To better understand the biological processes underlying various traits in poplar, e.g., wood development, a comprehensive functional gene interaction network is highly(More)
Abstract In plants, 24 nucleotide small interfering RNAs (24-nt siRNAs) account for a large percentage of the total siRNA pool, and they play an important role in guiding plant-specific RNA-directed DNA methylation (RdDM), which transcriptionally silences transposon elements, transgenes, repetitive sequences and some endogenous genes. Several loci in plant(More)
Salinization is one of the major factors that threaten the existence of plants worldwide. Populus euphratica has been deemed to be a promising candidate for stress response research because of its high capacity to tolerate extreme salt stress. We carried out a genome-wide transcriptome analysis to identify the differentially expressed genes (DEGs) response(More)
