CBL-interacting protein kinases (CIPKs) are involved in many aspects of plant responses to abiotic stresses. However, their functions are poorly understood in fruit trees. In this study, a salt-induced MdCIPK6L gene was isolated from apple. Its expression was positively induced by abiotic stresses, stress-related hormones and exogenous Ca2+. MdCIPK6L was(More)
BACKGROUND Dyslipidemia is an extremely prevalent but preventable risk factor for cardiovascular disease. However, many dyslipidemia patients remain undetected in resource limited settings. The study was performed to develop and evaluate a simple and effective prediction approach without biochemical parameters to identify those at high risk of dyslipidemia(More)
BACKGROUND Tamoxifen (TAM) is a nonsteroidal antiestrogen that has been widely used in the treatment of breast cancer through its anti-estrogen activity. Recent studies show that TAM is cytotoxic to both estrogen receptor (ER)-positive and ER-negative cells via the induction of apoptosis. However, the molecular mechanisms of this effect are not well(More)
The interactions of DNA with oxaliplatin (Pt(R,R-DACH)) or its enantiomer (Pt(S,S-DACH)) were investigated using magnetic tweezers and atomic force microscope. In the process of DNA condensation induced by Pt-DACH, only diadducts and micro-loops are formed at low Pt-DACH concentrations, while at high Pt-DACH concentrations, besides the diadducts and(More)
In the title coordination complex, [Zn(C(22)H(12)O(6))(H(2)O)(2)](n) or [Zn(H(2)nba)(H(2)O)(2)](n) (H(2)nba is 2,2'-dihydr-oxy-1,1'-bi-naph-thyl-3,3'-dicarboxyl-ate), the Zn(II) atom is coordinated by three H(2)nba ligands and two water molecules, resulting in a distorted trigonal-bipyramidal geometry. In the crystal structure, adjacent Zn(II) atoms are(More)
