BACKGROUND Soybean is a short-day crop of agricultural, ecological, and economic importance. The sensitive photoperiod responses significantly limit its breeding and adaptation. GmFT2a, a putative florigen gene with different transcription profiles in two cultivars (late-maturing Zigongdongdou and early-maturing Heihe 27) with different maturity profiles,(More)
Soybean cultivars are extremely diverse in time to flowering and maturation as a result of various photoperiod sensitivities. The underlying molecular genetic mechanism is not fully clear, however, four maturity loci E1, E2, E3 and E4 have been molecularly identified. In this report, cultivars were selected with various photoperiod sensitivities from(More)
Mink enteritis virus (MEV) causes a highly contagious viral disease of mink with a worldwide distribution. MEV has a linear, single-stranded, negative-sense DNA with a genome length of approximately 5,000 bp. The VP2 protein is the major structural protein of the parvovirus encoded by the vp2 gene. VP2 is highly antigenic and plays important roles in(More)
Environmental pollutants may affect the activities of many cellular enzymes. The effect on the proteome of enzymatic inhibitors can be determined using two-dimensional (2D) gel electrophoresis. In neuroendocrine cells, proprotein convertases 1 and 2 (PC1 and PC2) mediate the proteolytic activation of many precursors to peptide hormones and neuropeptides.(More)
