A multiplex PCR assay was developed and evaluated for its ability to simultaneously detect three viral infections of swine. Specific primers were carefully selected from articles published for each of the following three viruses: porcine circovirus type II (PCV2), porcine teschovirus (PTV) and porcine transmissible gastroenteritis virus (TGEV). Each target(More)
Adverse environmental conditions, such as drought, high salinity, and extreme temperature, severely affect the growth and productivity of crop plants. HD-Zip I transcription factors have been described to be involved in stress responses. In the present study, a novel transcription factor gene, SlHB2, from the HD-Zip I subfamily has been cloned from tomato.(More)
Plant-specific NAC (NAM/ATAF/CUC) transcription factors play crucial roles in diverse development processes as well as biotic and abiotic stress responses. Nevertheless, to date only few reports regarding stress-related NAC genes are available in tomato. In this study, we isolated an abiotic stress-responsive NAC gene from tomato, here designated as(More)
upa20 induces cell enlargement and hypertrophy development. In our research, overexpression of SlUPA-like, orthologous to upa20, severely affected the growth of vegetative and reproductive tissues. Wilted leaves curled upwardly and sterile flowers were found in transgenic lines. Through anatomical analysis, palisade and spongy tissues showed fluffy and(More)
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the most prevalent forms of cancer that shows a high mortality and increasing incidence. There are numerous successful treatment options for CRC, including surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and immunotherapy; however, their side effects and limitations are considerable. Probiotics may be an effective strategy for(More)
