We apply the Google PageRank algorithm to assess the relative importance of all publications in the Physical Review family of journals from 1893 to 2003. While the Google number and the number of citations for each publication are positively correlated, outliers from this linear relation identify some exceptional papers or “gems” that are universally(More)
Soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.] PI486355 is resistant to all the identified strains of soybean mosaic virus (SMV) and possesses two independently inherited resistance genes. To characterize the two genes, PI486355 was crossed with the susceptible cultivars ‘Lee 68’ and ‘Essex’ and with cultivars ‘Ogden’ and ‘Marshall’, which are resistant to SMV-G1 but(More)
Soil water-logging can cause severe damage to soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.] and results in significant yield reduction. The objective of this study was to identify quantitative trait loci (QTL) that condition water-logging tolerance (WLT) in soybean. Two populations with 103 and 67 F6:11 recombinant inbred lines (RILs) from A5403 × Archer (Population 1)(More)
'Tousan 140' and 'Hourei', two soybean [Glycine max (L) Merr.] accessions from Japan, each possess a single gene at different loci for resistance to Japanese Soybean mosaic virus (SMV) strain SMV C. However, more genetic information is needed to utilize these lines in a breeding program. The objectives of this study were to determine (i) the reaction of(More)
Pm6 in bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.), which was transferred from Triticum. timopheevii L., is a gene conferring resistance to the powdery mildew disease caused by Erysiphe graminis f. sp. tritici. Six near-isogenic lines ( NILs ) of Pm6 in a cultivar ’Prins’ background were analyzed to map this gene using restriction fragment length polymorphism(More)
Quenched QCD simulations on three volumes, 83×, 123× and 163 × 32 and three couplings, β = 5.7, 5.85 and 6.0 using domain wall fermions provide a consistent picture of quenched QCD. We demonstrate that the small induced effects of chiral symmetry breaking inherent in this formulation can be described by a residual mass (mres) whose size decreases as the(More)
Pancreatic beta cells undergo dynamic remodelling during the perinatal period, with enhanced neogenesis, proliferation and apoptosis observed. The molecular mechanisms responsible for these processes have yet to be elucidated. Survivin is an inhibitor of apoptosis, first described as being exclusively expressed in tumour and embryonic tissues with(More)
Soybean line `ICGR95-5383' [Glycinemax (L.) Merr.] is a newly releasedgermplasm from China and is resistant (R)to soybean mosaic virus (SMV). ICGR95-5383was crossed to the susceptible (S)cultivars `HB1', `Tiefeng21', `Amsoy', and`Williams' to investigate the inheritanceof SMV resistance. The F1 and F2plants were inoculated with SMV-3 (the mostvirulent)(More)
Like bone marrow stromal cells, adipose tissue-derived stem cells (ADSCs) possess multilineage potential, a capacity for self-renewal and long-term viability. To confirm whether ADSCs represent a promising source of cells for gene-enhanced bone tissue-engineering, the osteogenic potential of ADSCs under the control of certain osteoinductive genes has been(More)
