Soybean (Glycine max L.) displays considerable variation in its resistance to insects. Characterization and application of insect resistance genes in soybean germplasm may be a sustainable and economical approach to soybean production. In this study, we demonstrated that the gene encoding allene oxide synthase (GmAOS1) was associated with soybean defense(More)
CONTEXT Uterine decidualization is critical to embryonic implantation and sustained pregnancy. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the role of gap junction intercellular communications and connexin (Cx) proteins in the morphological and biochemical differentiation of decidualized human endometrial stromal cell (ESC) cultures. DESIGN Translational cell biological(More)
The evaluation and use of endogenous soybean genes is an effective strategy to minimize the yield losses caused by insects. Allene oxide cyclase (AOC) catalyzes the most important step in the biosynthesis of jasmonate (JA), which plays a crucial role in plant defense against insects. In this study, the role of GmAOC3 in plant insect resistance was(More)
To produce new derivatives of 20(S)-protopanaxatriol by fungal biotransformation. Biotransformation of 20(S)-protopanaxatriol (1) by Mucor racemosus AS 3.205 afforded six products. Their structures were elucidated on the basis of extensive spectroscopic analyses. M. racemosus could selectively catalyze dehydrogenation at C-12 and further hydroxylation at(More)
This study describes a rare case of Human Immunodeficiency Virus and Human Herpes Virus 8 (HHV-8) negative primary effusion lymphoma (PEL)-like lymphoma in a patient with hepatitis B virus-related liver cirrhosis, diagnosed in a 66-year-old male who rapidly progressed to a sense of abdominal fullness. Cytological analysis of the pleural effusion(More)
