Effects of biotic and abiotic elicitors on cell growth and tanshinone accumulation in Salvia miltiorrhiza cell cultures
The results suggest that the elicitor-stimulated tanshinone accumulation was a stress response of the cells. Expand
Genetic and Biochemical Characterization of the Poly(3-Hydroxybutyrate-co-3-Hydroxyvalerate) Synthase in Haloferax mediterranei
Cloned the gene cluster encoding a polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) synthase in H. mediterranei indicated that a novel member of the class III PHA synthases, composed of PhaC(Hme) and PhaE (Hme), accounted for the PHBV synthesis in H.'s mediterrani. Expand
A single gene directs both production and immunity of halocin C8 in a haloarchaeal strain AS7092
This is the first report on halocin immunity, and the results that a single gene encodes both peptide antibiotic and immunity protein also provide a novel immune mechanism for peptide antibiotics. Expand
Metabolites from Alternaria Fungi and Their Bioactivities
This review aims to briefly summarize the structurally different metabolites produced by Alternaria fungi, as well as their occurrences, biological activities and functions. Expand
Molecular Characterization of the phaECHm Genes, Required for Biosynthesis of Poly(3-Hydroxybutyrate) in the Extremely Halophilic Archaeon Haloarcula marismortui
Results indicated that the phaEC genes are required for biosynthesis of PHB and might encode an active PHA synthase in the Haloarcula species. Expand
Nuclear TRIM25 Specifically Targets Influenza Virus Ribonucleoproteins to Block the Onset of RNA Chain Elongation.
A nuclear role for TRIM25 is presented in specifically restricting influenza A virus replication through a direct mechanism that is independent of its ubiquitin ligase activity and the interferon pathway. Expand
Insecticidal Activity of Essential Oil of Carum Carvi Fruits from China and Its Main Components against Two Grain Storage Insects
During our screening program for agrochemicals from Chinese medicinal herbs and wild plants, the essential oil of Carum carvi fruits was found to possess strong contact toxicity against SitophilusExpand
Tomato Fusarium wilt and its chemical control strategies in a hydroponic system
It was observed that tomato wilt disease could be well controlled by low toxicity and systemic fungicides added in a hydroponic system at their appropriate concentration. Expand
Specific adaptation of Ustilaginoidea virens in occupying host florets revealed by comparative and functional genomics.
A draft genome sequence of U. virens is reported, showing that 18 candidate effectors can suppress plant hypersensitive responses and genes for secreted proteins and secondary metabolism and the pathogen-host interaction database genes are highly enriched in the transcriptome during early infection.

Antimicrobial Metabolites from the Endophytic Fungus Pichia guilliermondii Isolated from Paris polyphylla var. yunnanensis
The results suggest that the endophytic fungus Pichia guillermondii Ppf9 could be a candidate for producing helvolic acid, and the metabolites from this fungus could be potentially developed as antimicrobial agents in the future. Expand
