Effector-Triggered Immunity Determines Host Genotype-Specific Incompatibility in Legume-Rhizobium Symbiosis.
Symbiosis between legumes and rhizobia leads to the formation of N2-fixing root nodules. In soybean, several host genes, referred to as Rj genes, control nodulation. Soybean cultivars carrying theExpand

Identification of Bradyrhizobium elkanii Genes Involved in Incompatibility with Soybean Plants Carrying the Rj4 Allele
ABSTRACT Symbioses between leguminous plants and soil bacteria known as rhizobia are of great importance to agricultural production and nitrogen cycling. While these mutualistic symbioses can involveExpand

Downregulation of programmed cell death 4 by inflammatory conditions contributes to the generation of the tumor promoting microenvironment
Ample evidence has shown key roles of inflammation in tumor promotion and carcinogenesis, and tumor‐associated macrophages are known to promote tumor growth and dissemination. Programmed cell death 4Expand

β-Glucan from Saccharomyces cerevisiae reduces lipopolysaccharide-induced inflammatory responses in RAW264.7 macrophages.
BACKGROUND β-Glucans obtained from fungi, such as baker's yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae)-derived β-glucan (BBG), potently activate macrophages through nuclear factor κB (NFκB) translocation andExpand

Lotus Accessions Possess Multiple Checkpoints Triggered by Different Type III Secretion System Effectors of the Wide-Host-Range Symbiont Bradyrhizobium elkanii USDA61
Bradyrhizobium elkanii, a rhizobium with a relatively wide host range, possesses a functional type III secretion system (T3SS) that is involved in symbiotic incompatibility against Rj4-genotypeExpand

Hierarchy in the home cage affects behaviour and gene expression in group-housed C57BL/6 male mice
Group-housed male mice exhibit aggressive behaviour towards their cage mates and form a social hierarchy. Here, we describe how social hierarchy in standard group-housed conditions affects behaviourExpand

Absorption and Metabolism of Luteolin and Its Glycosides from the Extract of Chrysanthemum morifolium Flowers in Rats and Caco-2 Cells.
To elucidate the bioavailability of luteolin and its glycosides in Chrysanthemum morifolium flowers, the absorption and metabolism of luteolin from them was investigated in rats and Caco-2 cellsExpand

Estrogen- and stress-induced DNA damage in breast cancer and chemoprevention with dietary flavonoid
Breast cancer is one of the most commonly diagnosed female cancers and a leading cause of cancer-related death in women. Multiple factors are responsible for breast cancer and heritable factors haveExpand

β-Glucan from Lentinus edodes Inhibits Nitric Oxide and Tumor Necrosis Factor-α Production and Phosphorylation of Mitogen-activated Protein Kinases in Lipopolysaccharide-stimulated Murine RAW 264.7
Background: High level of NO and TNF-α can induce diverse effects on host survival. Results: Lentinan inhibits NO and TNF-α secretion and phosphorylation of MAP kinases JNK1/2 and ERK1/2. Conclusion:Expand

Quercetin-3-O-glucronide inhibits noradrenaline binding to α2-adrenergic receptor, thus suppressing DNA damage induced by treatment with 4-hydroxyestradiol and noradrenaline in MCF-10A cells
Risk factors for breast cancer include estrogens such as 17β-estradiol (E2) and high stress levels. 4-Hydroxyestradiol (4-OHE2), a metabolite of E2 formed preferentially by cytochrome P450 1B1, isExpand
