Antimalarial drugs impose strong selective pressure on Plasmodium falciparum parasites and leave signatures of selection in the parasite genome; screening for genes under selection may suggest potential drug or immune targets. Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) of parasite traits have been hampered by the lack of high-throughput genotyping methods,(More)
Genetic diversity of 56 radish accessions, representing nearly all the typical types and origins of cultivated radish germplasms conserved in the National Mid-term Genebank for Vegetables of China, was assessed with amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) and random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) markers. A total of 72 and 128 polymorphic bands were(More)
Analysis of the explanted hearts from heart transplant recipients provides valuable clinical samples, which can be used to study the anatomy and pathology of the heart. PubMed database was employed as the article source of this review. This article summarized the processing methods of the explanted heart, including dissection, histopathologic examination,(More)
Brassica oleracea and B. rapa are two important vegetable crops. Both are composed of dozens of subspecies encompassing hundreds of varieties and cultivars. Synthetic B. napus with these two plants has been used extensively as a research model for the investigation of allopolyploid evolution. However, the mechanism underlying the explosive evolution of(More)
The inducibility of the glucosinolate resistance mechanism is an energy-saving strategy for plants, but whether induction would still be triggered by glucosinolate-tolerant Plutella xylostella (diamondback moth, DBM) after a plant had evolved a new resistance mechanism (e.g., saponins in Barbara vulgaris) was unknown. In B. vulgaris, aromatic glucosinolates(More)
Anthocyanins are widely distributed water-soluble phytochemical pigments belonging to the flavonoid group. To date, limited knowledge is available about the regulatory roles of miRNAs in anthocyanin biosynthesis in plants. To identify the miRNAs associated with anthocyanin biosynthesis in radish, five small RNA (sRNA) libraries constructed from ‘Xinlimei’(More)
BACKGROUND The diamondback moth (DBM, Plutella xylostella) is a crucifer-specific pest that causes significant crop losses worldwide. Barbarea vulgaris (Brassicaceae) can resist DBM and other herbivorous insects by producing feeding-deterrent triterpenoid saponins. Plant breeders have long aimed to transfer this insect resistance to other crops. However, a(More)
The mechanism of immune tolerance is to be further understood. The present study aims to investigate the role of the Cardiac endothelial cell (CEC)-derived exosomes in the induction of regulatory B cells. In this study, CECs were isolated from the mouse heart. Exosomes were purified from the culture supernatant of the primary endothelial cells. The(More)
OBJECTIVES This study evaluated the effect of high selective bilateral vagotomy of hilus pulmonis with video-assisted thoracoscopy on asthma. METHODS Eight dogs with skin sensitive to Ascaris suum antigens were randomly divided into groups A and B. Asthma was induced by aerosol inhalation of A suum antigens. Respiratory rate and peak airway pressure were(More)
To inhibit the immune inflammation in the allografts can be beneficial to organ transplantation. This study aims to induce the donor antigen specific regulatory T cells (Treg cell) inhibit the immune inflammation in the allograft heart. In this study, peripheral exosomes were purified from the mouse serum. A heart transplantation mouse model was developed.(More)
