The effects of Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. cucumerinum, the pathogen causing Fusarium wilt in cucumber and cinnamic acid, a principal autotoxic component in the root exudates of cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.), on plant growth, Photosynthesis and incidence of Fusarium wilt in cucumber were studied in order to elucidate the interaction of autotoxins and(More)
The serum level of the fourth component of complement (C4) in mice bearing the H-2k haplotype is only 1/10 to 1/20 of that of non-H-2k mice. We have analyzed C4 cDNA clones from B10.BR(H-2k) mouse liver and found aberrant C4 cDNA which contained a 200-base pair (bp) insertion between the exon 13 and exon 14 encoded sequences in addition to the normal C4(More)
The morphological structure of the lingual papillae and their connective tissue cores (CTC) in a rabbit were studied using LM and SEM and were compared to that of other animal species. Externally, the filiform papillae distributed on the anterior surface of the dorsal tongue were short and conical with a round base and had a flat area on their anterior(More)
The serum level of the fourth component of complement (C4) in mice bearing H-2k haplotype is only 1/10 of that of non-H-2k mice. H-2k bearing mice, but not non-H-2k bearing mice, have an insertion of the B2 sequence into intron 13 of the C4 gene, and aberrant C4 mRNA in liver apparently generated by abnormal RNA splicing caused by the insertion of the B2(More)
Photosynthetic responses of potato (Solanum tuberosum L. cv. Chunzao) were examined during potato virus Y (PVYNTN) infection. PVYNTN infection significantly reduced net photosynthetic rate and stomatal conductance, but had little influence on intercellular CO2 concentration. As the disease developed, the maximum carboxylation velocity of(More)
The mechanism of senescence is very complicated and can involve formation of chromosome abnormalities and a decline in female fertility. In this study, 3-D visualization of fluorescently labeled chromosomes in oocytes from aging and pubertal mice during in vitro maturation was done with a two-photon laser scanning microscope. Differences between aging and(More)
As an anticancer drug, 5-azacytidine (5-AzaC) has been widely used to treat various cancers. To investigate the effect of 5-AzaC on mouse oocytes cultured in vitro, we have performed morphological and molecular biology studies to examine the behavior of chromosomes and oocyte development. In 5-AzaC-treated oocytes, chromosomes were decondensed and unstable.(More)
Cis- and trans-acting factors were analyzed for transcription of the adenovirus 12 E1A gene possessing two sites for transcription initiation. These sites are located at nucleotide positions 306 and 445 with respect to the left end of the viral genome as position 1. The template activity of DNAs with various deletions at the 5'-upstream region of the E1A(More)
