The kiwifruit (Actinidia chinensis) is an economically and nutritionally important fruit crop with remarkably high vitamin C content. Here we report the draft genome sequence of a heterozygous kiwifruit, assembled from ~140-fold next-generation sequencing data. The assembled genome has a total length of 616.1 Mb and contains 39,040 genes. Comparative(More)
To define the function of the GDD motif of the RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (RdRp) of classical swine fever virus (CSFV), single amino acid substitutions were introduced into the CSFV NS5B. All substitutions within the GDD motif were detrimental to the polymerase activity, the binding activity and the terminal nucleotidyl transferase activity of the NS5B(More)
The evolutionarily conserved ATP-dependent chromatin remodeling enzyme Fun30 has recently been shown to play important roles in heterochromatin silencing and DNA repair. However, how Fun30 remodels nucleosomes is not clear. Here we report a nucleosome sliding activity of Fun30 and its role in transcriptional repression. We observed that Fun30 repressed the(More)
The structural characteristics of Fusarium have received attention from both pure and applied scientists. Because many genes and physiological mechanisms are involved in the development of a particular structure type, this research is complicated. For revealing the structure of macromolecule in these fungal cells, FT-IR spectroscopy combined with(More)
Fourier Transform Infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy, in combination with chemometrics, was investigated as a simple method to differentiateFusarium spp. Strains were grown on solid culture plates for sporulation. Spectral data of spores ofFusarium spp. were recorded within the range from 4000 to 400 cm−1. Hierarchical cluster analysis (HCA) and principal(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the biomechanical characteristics of Ni-Ti shape-memory alloy-enclosed interlocking intramedular nail Ni-Ti En for clinical application. METHODS Six transverse fractures were induced in 6 fresh humeral shafts and fixed with Ni-Ti En, plate, interlocking intramedullary nail, and Ender nail, respectively. The specimens then underwent(More)
