The maize dek1 gene functions in embryonic pattern formation and cell fate specification.
The dek1 gene product appears to control different cellular-developmental processes depending on cellular context, and functions in embryonic pattern formation, cell fate specification and pattern formation in the leaf epidermis, andcell fate specification in the endosperm.
Abscisic Acid and Stress Signals Induce Viviparous1 Expression in Seed and Vegetative Tissues of Maize1[OA]
The data support a model for a VP1-dependent positive feedback mechanism regulating Vp1 expression during seed maturation, and identify a potential ABA-responsive complex, consisting of an ACGT-containing ABA response element (ABRE) and a coupling element 1-like motif.
Structure and promoter/leader deletion analysis of mirabilis mosaic virus (MMV) full-length transcript promoter in transgenic plants
A full-length transcript (FLt) promoter fragment was isolated from a genomic clone of mirabilis mosaic virus (MMV), a double-stranded DNA plant pararetrovirus belonging to the caulimovirus family and showed much greater activity than the CaMV 35S promoter.
An Intergenic Region Shared by At4g35985 and At4g35987 in Arabidopsis thaliana Is a Tissue Specific and Stress Inducible Bidirectional Promoter Analyzed in Transgenic Arabidopsis and Tobacco Plants
Use of such regulatory elements of bidirectional promoters showing spatial and stress inducible promoter-functions in heterologous system might be an important tool for plant biotechnology and gene stacking applications.
Anti-malarial activities of Andrographis paniculata and Hedyotis corymbosa extracts and their combination with curcumin
Both the plant extracts were found to inhibit the ring stage of the parasite and did not show any in vivo toxicity, whether used in isolation or in combination.
Andrographolide: A Novel Antimalarial Diterpene Lactone Compound from Andrographis paniculata and Its Interaction with Curcumin and Artesunate
In vivo, andrographolide-curcumin exhibited better antimalarial activity, not only by reducing parasitemia compared to the control, but also by extending the life span by 2-3 folds.
Effective Control of Salmonella Infections by Employing Combinations of Recombinant Antimicrobial Human β-Defensins hBD-1 and hBD-2
It is concluded that bacterium-derived recombinant β-defensins (hBD-1 and hBD-2) are promising antimicrobial peptide (AMP)-based substances for the development of new therapeutics against typhoid fever.
