BACKGROUND The Solanaceae family includes several economically important vegetable crops. The tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) is regarded as a model plant of the Solanaceae family. Recently, a number of tomato resources have been developed in parallel with the ongoing tomato genome sequencing project. In particular, a miniature cultivar, Micro-Tom, is(More)
Radar scattering mechanisms over landslide areas were studied using representative full polarimetric parameters: Freeman–Durden decomposition, and eigenvalue–eigenvector decomposition. Full polarimetric ALOS (Advanced Land Observation Satellite) PALSAR (Phased Array type L-band Synthetic Aperture Radar) datasets were used to examine landslides caused by the(More)
Smad5 is thought to relay signals of the bone morphogenetic protein pathway. The 5' untranslated region (5'UTR) of human Smad5 mRNA is long, has the potential to form secondary structures and contains five AUG codons. Here we show that the 5'UTR of Smad5 contains an internal ribosome entry site (IRES) located within 100 nt of the 3' end of the 5'UTR. The(More)
