Carnation (Dianthus caryophyllus L.) is one of the most important ornamental plants in the world. Though morphological modification of carnation is very important to its commercial value, there have been no relevant reports until now. PttKN1 (Populus tremula × Tremuoides knotted1), isolated from the vascular cambial region of hybrid aspen, is a novel member(More)
The leaf primordium derives from the peripheral zone of shoot apical meristem. During the formation of leaf primordia, they need to establish the proximodistal, mediolateral, and ab/adaxial axes. Among these axes, the ab/adaxial axis might be the most important. ASYMMETRIC LEAVES2 (AS2) gene is a member of AS2/LATERAL ORGAN BOUNDARY (LOB) family of(More)
Although mast cells play a critical role in allergic reactions, the cells are also involved in the protective immunity in the body. This study aims to investigate the role of mast cells in immune regulation during aberrant T helper (Th)2 responses. In this study, an adoptive antigen-specific Th2 response model was established with mast cell-deficient mice(More)
BACKGROUND The functions of regulatory T (Treg) cells are important in immunity, and the regulatory mechanisms of Treg cell activities are not fully understood yet. OBJECTIVES We sought to investigate the role of insulin-like growth factor (IGF) 2 in the upregulation of Treg cell function. METHODS The expression of insulin-like growth factor 2 receptor(More)
Celosia plumosus L. is one of the most common gardening plants worldwide. The C. plumosus L. transformation system established by other research team should be useful for modifying physiological, medicinal, and horticultural traits. Though morphological modification of C. plumosus L. would be critical in terms of its commercial value, few attempts have been(More)
Regulatory B cells (Bregs) are important in immune regulation. The factors that regulate Breg functions are less clear. Insulin-like growth factor 2 (IGF2) is capable of inducing hematopoietic stem cell differentiation. This study aimed to investigate the role of IGF2 in the development of Bregs and the enhancement of their function. In this study, the(More)
Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC) is hereditary cardiomyopathy characterized by the fibro-fatty replacement of the myocardium. A small number of noncomprehensive profiling studies based on human cardiac tissues have been conducted and reported; consequently, ARVC's gene expression pattern characteristics remain largely undocumented. Our(More)
ASYMMERTIC LEAVES1 (AS1) and AS2 in Arabidopsis are essential in determining leaf cell fates of adaxial axis. Here, we report ASYMMERTIC LEAVES2-LIKE38 (ASL38/LBD41), is an important gene of the LATERAL ORGAN BOUNDARY DOMAIN family. ASL38/LBD41 was detected in the adaxial and internal domain between the ab-adaxial domains of leaves. For explaining(More)
