The classical view of neural plate development held that it arises from the ectoderm, after its separation from the mesodermal and endodermal lineages. However, recent cell-lineage-tracing experiments indicate that the caudal neural plate and paraxial mesoderm are generated from common bipotential axial stem cells originating from the caudal lateral(More)
Denitrification occurs markedly in rice paddy fields; however, few microbes that are actively involved in denitrification in these environments have been identified. In this study, we used a laboratory soil microcosm system in which denitrification activity was enhanced. DNA and RNA were extracted from soil at six time points after enhancing denitrification(More)
Of the three dominant marine microalgal groups, dinoflagellates and diatoms can undergo genetic transformation; however, no transformation method has been established for haptophytes to date. Here, we report the first stable genetic transformation of a coccolithophore, Pleurochrysis carterae, by means of polyethylene glycol (PEG)-mediated transfer of a(More)
Supplementary Figure 1. Comparison of Sox2 expression and enhancer N1-LacZ transgene expression in gastrulating mouse embryos. a, b. Comparison of expression patterns of Sox2 and N1-LacZ transgene using stage-matched embryos. N1-LacZ was active in the CLE, node (arrowhead), node-derived notochord (Not) and endoderm (End), while Sox2 expression was absent in(More)
