Pre-harvest sprouting (PHS) is a complex trait controlled by multiple genes with strong interaction between environment and genotype that makes it difficult to select breeding materials by phenotypic assessment. One of the most important genes for pre-harvest sprouting resistance is consistently identified on the long arm of chromosome 4A. The 4AL PHS(More)
p53 mutation is known to contribute to cancer progression. Fascin is an actin-bundling protein and has been recently identified to promote cancer cell migration and invasion through its role in formation of cellular protrusions such as filopodia and invadopodia. However, the relationship between p53 and Fascin is not understood. Here, we have found a new(More)
Increasing evidences have demonstrated that microRNAs (miRNAs) act an essential role in regulating tumor progression and metastasis. Previous miRNAs microarray data showed that hsa-miR-599 is lower expressed in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC); however, the function and molecular mechanism of hsa-miR-599 on HCC has not been well illustrated. Here, we first(More)
Alternaria alternata (tobacco pathotype) is a necrotrophic fungus causing severe losses in Nicotiana species by infection of mature leaves. Similar to what has been observed in cultivated tobacco, N. tabacum, young leaves of wild tobacco, N. attenuata, were more resistant to A. alternata than mature leaves, and this was correlated with stronger blue(More)
Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have emerged recently as important factors in regulating fundamental biological processes. Alterations in the expression and function of lncRNAs have been observed to promote tumor formation, progression and metastasis. Although downregulation of the expression levels of LET lncRNA in several tumors has been reported, its role(More)
Text clustering is a very important technology in the area of text data mining. The semantic calculation method can greatly improve the computational. The aim of this paper is to improve the existing text clustering algorithms, for Chinese text and used semantic clustering method. First, in similarity calculation module of the clustering, used a staged and(More)
The programmed death-1 (PD-1), a coinhibitory receptor expressed on activated T cells and B cells, is demonstrated to induce an immune-mediated response and play a critical role in tumor initiation and development. The cancer patients harboring PD-1 or PD ligand 1 (PD-L1) protein expression have often a poor prognosis and clinical outcome. Currently,(More)
