Catechin contents in tea (Camellia sinensis) as affected by cultivar and environment and their relation to chlorophyll contents
Abstract The variations of the total and individual catechin contents of tea were evaluated among three cultivars grown in 10 locations; the dynamic changes of chlorophyll and catechin contents inExpand

The findings suggest that both the surveillance of tet(X) variants in clinical and animal sectors and the use of tetracyclines in food production require urgent global attention. Expand
Comparison of catechins and purine alkaloids in albino and normal green tea cultivars (Camellia sinensis L.) by HPLC
Correlation analysis indicated that C, EGC and (−)-epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) were significantly and negatively correlated with chlorophyll contents, suggesting that chlorophyLLs might play vital roles in the regulation of catechin biosynthesis. Expand
Hyperuricemia induces endothelial dysfunction via mitochondrial Na+/Ca2+ exchanger-mediated mitochondrial calcium overload.
The increased generation of mitochondrial O2·- induced by a high concentration of UA is triggered by mitochondrial calcium overload and ultimately leads to endothelial dysfunction and may offer a new therapeutic target for clinicians. Expand
Aldose reductase mediates endothelial cell dysfunction induced by high uric acid concentrations
It is indicated that inhibiting AR or degrading H2O2 could protect endothelial function and maintain the antioxidant activities of UA and provide new insight into the role of UA in chronic kidney disease. Expand
Characteristics of NH4+ and NO3− fluxes in tea (Camellia sinensis) roots measured by scanning ion-selective electrode technique
The results showed that under both single and mixed N forms, influx rates of NO3− were much lower than those of NH4+, suggesting a preference for NH4+ in tea, which may help advance hydroponic tea experiments and be used to develop efficient fertilization protocols for soil-grown tea in the future.

Genome-wide analysis of codon usage bias in four sequenced cotton species
It is concluded that the codon usage bias was weak and the translation selection was the main shaping factor in nuclear genes of these four cotton genomes and four subgenomes. Expand
The photosensitive phs1 mutant is impaired in the riboflavin biogenesis pathway.
The PHS1 gene was found to encode a protein containing a deaminase-reductase domain that is involved in the riboflavin pathway that plays an important role in protecting plants from photooxidative damage. Expand
RNA-Seq Analysis Reveals Genes Underlying Different Disease Responses to Porcine Circovirus Type 2 in Pigs
The findings indicate that the susceptibility to PCV2 infection depends on a genetic difference between LW and YL pigs, and SERPNA1 likely plays an important role in the resistance of LW pigs to PCv2 infection. Expand
Large‐fragment insertion activates gene GaFZ (Ga08G0121) and is associated with the fuzz and trichome reduction in cotton (Gossypium arboreum)
Co‐expression and interaction analyses demonstrated that GaFZ might impact fuzz fibre/trichome development by repressing the expression of genes in the very‐long‐chain fatty acid elongation pathway while providing insights into the importance of noncoding sequences in cotton. Expand
