Xylem-to-phloem transfer in young vegetative soybean (Glycine max [L.] Merr.) plants (V4 stage) was identified as the difference in the distribution of [(14)C]inulin, a xylem marker, and [(14)C]aminoisobutyric acid (AIB), a synthetic amino acid, fed via the transpiration stream. Since [(14)C]AIB was retained in the stem to some extent, whereas [(14)C]inulin(More)
Pulse-chase feeding (30-120 minutes) of (14)C-labeled nitrogenous compounds to cut transpiring shoots was used to investigate the early fate of the major xylem-borne solutes in N(2)-fixing soybean (Glycine max) plants at the V(4) growth stage. By comparison with the foliar distribution of [(14)C]inulin (a xylem marker), it was determined that the phloem(More)
Approximately 170 million people are chronic carriers of hepatitis C virus (HCV). Patients with chronic hepatitis C are currently treated with pegylated interferon and ribavirin (PEG-IFN/RBV). A genome-wide association with PEG-IFN/RBV treatment response and a single nucleotide polymorphism (rs12979860) has been identified near the interleukin 28B gene that(More)
