Rice stripe, a virus disease, transmitted by a small brown planthopper (SBPH), has greatly reduced production of japonica rice in East Asia, especially in China. Although we have made great progress in mapping resistance genes, little is known about the mechanism of resistance. By de novo transcriptome assembling, we gained sufficient transcript data to(More)
A novel R gene was mapped to a locus on chromosome 11 from 30.42 to 30.85 Mb, which was proven to be efficient in the improvement of rice blast resistance. Rice blast is a devastating fungal disease worldwide. The use of blast resistance (R) genes is the most important approach to control the disease in rice breeding. In the present study, we finely mapped(More)
With the rapid development of information technology, mobile devices have exhibited increasing popularity in recent years. To support the anytime-anywhere service model of mobile devices, one important problem related to the screen display arises when using these devices (e.g., smartphone and tablet) under various lighting conditions. On one hand, it is(More)
BACKGROUND The small brown planthopper (Laodelphax striatellus) is a widespread insect pest of rice in East Asia. Previous studies have shown the long-distance migrations undertaken by L. striatellus, but have not provided molecular evidence to support this. RESULTS Long-distance immigration has occurred in the north-east coastal rice-growing region of(More)
PURPOSE The use of sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) can decrease the bond strength of 4-META/MMA-TBB resin cement to root dentin. The aim of this in vitro study was to evaluate the effect of sodium toluene sulfinic acid (SA) as a pretreatment to increase bond strength to NaOCl-treated dentin. MATERIALS AND METHODS The root canal dentin of bovine teeth was(More)
A novel three-dimensional metal organic framework, Pb3O2L (1) (H2L = 4-(1H-tetrazol-5-yl)phenol), with a unique 3D network structure exhibits excellent luminescence and good stability in water and other organic solvents. 1 can act as a promising dual functional sensor for the detection and recognition of nitroaromatic explosives (NACs) and Fe3+ ions via(More)
