Brassinosteroids (BRs) are growth-promoting plant hormones that play a role in abiotic stress responses, but molecular modes that enable this activity remain largely unknown. Here we show that BRs participate in the regulation of freezing tolerance. BR signaling-defective mutants of Arabidopsis thaliana were hypersensitive to freezing before and after cold(More)
Studies in rodents and newborn humans demonstrate the influence of brown adipose tissue (BAT) in temperature control and energy balance and a critical role in the regulation of body weight. Here, we obtained samples of epicardial adipose tissue (EAT) from neonates, infants, and children in order to evaluate changes in their transcriptional landscape by(More)
Poinsettia (Euphorbia pulcherrima) is one of the most popular ornamental pot plants. Conventional propagation is by cuttings, generally focused on a period prior to the most intensive time of sales. Rapid multiplication of elite clones, the production of pathogen-free plants and more rapid introduction of novel cultivars (cvs.) with desirable traits,(More)
STUDY HYPOTHESIS Myometrial explants represent a superior model compared with cell culture models for the study of human myometrial progesterone (P4) signalling in parturition. STUDY FINDING Gene expression analysis showed myometrial explants closely resemble the in vivo condition and the anti-inflammatory action of P4 is not lost with labour onset. (More)
