Agrobacterium strains have been frequently isolated from the root nodules of different legumes. Various possible mechanisms have been proposed to explain the existence of these bacteria in nodules, but there is no sufficient experimental evidence to support the estimations. In this work, we proved that the Agrobacterium strain CCBAU 81181, which was(More)
BACKGROUND At present, plant molecular systematics and DNA barcoding techniques rely heavily on the use of chloroplast gene sequences. Because of the relatively low evolutionary rates of chloroplast genes, there are very few choices suitable for molecular studies on angiosperms at low taxonomic levels, and for DNA barcoding of species.

BACKGROUND Resveratrol has shown potent antioxidant activity in ischemia models. The present study was performed to determine whether resveratrol protects against cerebral ischemia-induced neuronal and myocardial injury by interfering with mitochondrial homeostasis. METHODS Wistar rats were pretreated with resveratrol or vehicle intraperitoneally for one(More)
BACKGROUND The CC chemokines, regulated on activation, normal T-cell expressed and secreted (RANTES) and macrophage-inflammatory protein-1alpha (MIP-1alpha), have been identified as potential contributors to the pathogenesis and the progression of endometriosis. Dioxin, an air pollutant, and estrogen also appear to be involved in endometriosis. The aim of(More)
Numerous studies have demonstrated that damage of kidney of mice can be caused by exposure to titanium dioxide nanoparticles (TiO(2) NPs). However, the molecular mechanism of TiO(2) NPs-induced nephric injury remains unclear. In this study, the mechanism of nephric injury in mice induced by an intragastric administration of TiO(2) NPs was investigated. The(More)
Exposure to titanium dioxide nanoparticles (TiO(2) NPs) has been demonstrated to result in pulmonary inflammation in animals; however, very little is known about the molecular mechanisms of pulmonary injury due to TiO(2) NPs exposure. The aim of this study was to evaluate the oxidative stress and molecular mechanism associated with pulmonary inflammation in(More)
Prior to the development of zinc-finger nuclease technology, genetic manipulation by gene targeting achieved limited success in mammals, with the exception of mice and rat. Although ZFNs demonstrated highly effective gene targeted disruption in various model organisms, the activity of ZFNs in large domestic animals may be very low, and the probability of(More)
Cutaneous leg ulcers are common in sickle cell anaemia and their risk might be genetically determined. Sickle cell anaemia patients were studied to examine the relationship of leg ulcers with haemolysis and with single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in candidate genes that could affect sickle vasoocclusion. Leg ulcer patients had lower haemoglobin levels(More)
AKI is characterized by increased catecholamine levels and hypertension. Renalase, a secretory flavoprotein that oxidizes catecholamines, attenuates ischemic injury and the associated increase in catecholamine levels in mice. However, whether the amine oxidase activity of renalase is involved in preventing ischemic injury is debated. In this study,(More)
MicroRNA (miR)‑195 has been reported to be a tumor suppressor. Downregulation of miR‑195 has been shown to correlate with lymph node metastasis and poor prognosis in colorectal cancer. However, the specific regulatory role of miR‑195 in colorectal cancer cells is yet to be elucidated. In the present study, miR‑195 expression was significantly reduced in(More)
