Silencing Mitosin Induces Misaligned Chromosomes, Premature Chromosome Decondensation before Anaphase Onset, and Mitotic Cell Death
ABSTRACT Mitosin (also named CENP-F) is a large human nuclear protein transiently associated with the outer kinetochore plate in M phase. Using RNA interference and fluorescence microscopy, we showedExpand
Molecular and biochemical characterization of the Fe(III) chelate reductase gene family in Arabidopsis thaliana.
Iron chelate reductase is required for iron acquisition from soil and for metabolism in plants. In the genome of Arabidopsis thaliana there are eight genes classified into the iron chelate reductaseExpand

Disruption of Smad4 in Odontoblasts Causes Multiple Keratocystic Odontogenic Tumors and Tooth Malformation in Mice
ABSTRACT Keratocystic odontogenic tumors (KCOTs) are cystic epithelial neoplasias with a high recurrence rate. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying the initiation and progression of KCOTs areExpand
Analysis of Enterovirus 68 Strains from the 2014 North American Outbreak Reveals a New Clade, Indicating Viral Evolution
Enterovirus 68 (EVD68) causes respiratory illness, mostly in children. Despite a reported low-level of transmission, the occurrence of several recent outbreaks worldwide including the 2014 outbreakExpand
CELLULOSE SYNTHASE INTERACTIVE3 Regulates Cellulose Biosynthesis in Both a Microtubule-Dependent and Microtubule-Independent Manner in Arabidopsis[C][W]
CELLULOSE SYNTHASE INTERACTIVE3 (CSI3) is an important regulator of cellulose biosynthesis and anisotropic growth. Together with CSI1, CSI3 regulates the rate of cellulose biosynthesis in both aExpand

  • 1 August 2017
Nine novel Gram-stain-positive bacteria were investigated by a polyphasic taxonomic approach. Based on the analysis of 16S rRNA gene sequences, these strains belonged to the Bacillus cereus group,Expand
Antibacterial, anti-biofilm and anticancer potentials of green synthesized silver nanoparticles using benzoin gum (Styrax benzoin) extract
This study described a simple and green approach for the synthesis of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) employing benzoin gum water extract as a reducing and capping agent and their applications. TheExpand
Screening of native plants from wasteland surrounding a Zn smelter in Feng County China, for phytoremediation.
Phytoremediation is regarded as one of the most cost-effective and environmentally friendly strategies for potentially toxical metals (PTMs) contaminated soil remediation. Despite that, continuousExpand
