Serological characterization of Haemophilus parasuis isolates from China.
From September 2002 to December 2004, a total of 281 strains of Haemophilus parasuis were isolated from 17 provinces of China. All these isolates were serotyped by both the gel diffusion (GD) and the… Expand
A small molecule modulates Jumonji histone demethylase activity and selectively inhibits cancer growth
The pharmacological inhibition of general transcriptional regulators has the potential to block growth through targeting multiple tumorigenic signaling pathways simultaneously. Here, using an… Expand
Roles of CcrA and CcrB in excision and integration of staphylococcal cassette chromosome mec, a Staphylococcus aureus genomic island.
The gene encoding resistance to methicillin and other beta-lactam antibiotics in staphylococci, mecA, is carried on a genomic island, SCCmec (for staphylococcal cassette chromosome mec). The… Expand
Complete loss of ischaemic preconditioning-induced cardioprotection in mice with partial deficiency of HIF-1 alpha.
AIMS We investigated whether hypoxia-inducible factor 1 alpha (HIF-1 alpha) plays a role in the acute phase of ischaemic preconditioning (IPC). METHODS AND RESULTS Hearts from wild-type (WT) mice… Expand
Silencing Threonine Deaminase and JAR4 in Nicotiana attenuata Impairs Jasmonic Acid–Isoleucine–Mediated Defenses against Manduca sexta[W]
Threonine deaminase (TD) catalyzes the conversion of Thr to α-keto butyrate in Ile biosynthesis; however, its dramatic upregulation in leaves after herbivore attack suggests a role in defense. In… Expand
Scopoletin is a phytoalexin against Alternaria alternata in wild tobacco dependent on jasmonate signalling
Summary This study demonstrates that wild tobacco Nicotiana attenuata plants accumulate the phytoalexin scopoletin to defend against the necrotrophic fungus Alternaria alternata in a JA… Expand
Identification and characterization of CBL and CIPK gene families in canola (Brassica napus L.)
BackgroundCanola (Brassica napus L.) is one of the most important oil-producing crops in China and worldwide. The yield and quality of canola is frequently threatened by environmental stresses… Expand
Characterization of DNA sequences required for the CcrAB-mediated integration of staphylococcal cassette chromosome mec, a Staphylococcus aureus genomic island.
The mobile element staphylococcal cassette chromosome mec (SCCmec), which carries mecA, the gene responsible for methicillin resistance in staphylococci, inserts into the chromosome at a specific… Expand
Identification of breast cancer metastasis‐associated proteins in an isogenic tumor metastasis model using two‐dimensional gel electrophoresis and liquid chromatography‐ion trap‐mass spectrometry
To better understand the molecular mechanisms underlying breast cancer metastasis and search for potential markers for metastatic progression, we have developed a highly metastatic variant of human… Expand
Role of an FtsK-like protein in genetic stability in Streptomyces coelicolor A3(2).
Streptomyces coelicolor A3(2) does not have a canonical cell division cycle during most of its complex life cycle, yet it contains a gene (ftsK(SC)) encoding a protein similar to FtsK, which couples… Expand
