microRNAs (miRNAs) are endogenous, noncoding, small RNAs that have essential regulatory functions in plant growth, development, and stress response processes. However, limited information is available about their functions in sexual reproduction of flowering plants. Pollen development is an important process in the life cycle of a flowering plant and is a(More)
In the present study, a polygalacturonase (PG) gene was isolated from Brassica campestris L. ssp. chinensis Makino (syn. Brassica rapa ssp. chinensis). Sequence analysis indicated that it contained three classical conserved domains (I, II, and IV) of PG proteins. Phylogenetic analysis demonstrated that it was clustered into the clade E of PG family with(More)
Plant β-galactosidases (EC 3.2.1.23; BGAL) are associated with cell wall biogenesis and modification. β-Galactosidase isozymes are encoded by the BGAL multigene family in plants. In this study, 16 BcBGAL genes from the Brassica campestris ssp. chinensis (syn. Brassica rapa ssp. chinensis) genome were investigated and compared with those from Arabidopsis(More)
Two homologous genes, Brassica campestris Male Fertility 23a (BcMF23a) and Brassica campestris Male Fertility 23b (BcMF23b), encoding putative pectin methylesterases (PMEs) were isolated from Brassica campestris ssp. chinensis (syn. Brassica rapa ssp. chinensis). These two genes sharing high sequence identity with each other were highly expressed in the(More)
Splenic metastasis of ovarian cancer appears to be more common in serous cystadenocarcinomas. Splenic metastasis usually occurs postoperatively and simultaneously with dissemination to the greater omentum and pelvic cavity. Compared with other ovarian cancer subtypes, ovarian clear cell adenocarcinoma (OCCA) is rare, accounting for <5% of all ovarian(More)
The aim of this study was to explore the clinical characteristics of and treatment strategies for interstitial pneumonia induced by gefitinib in patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The detailed clinical data of one patient with NSCLC and gefitinib‑induced inter-stitial pneumonia were compiled and a review of relevant previous studies(More)
