Carotenoids are isoprenoid compounds synthesized by all photosynthetic organisms. Despite much research on carotenoid biosynthesis in the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana, there is a lack of information on the carotenoid pathway in Brassica rapa. To better understand its carotenoid biosynthetic pathway, we performed a systematic analysis of carotenoid(More)
In this study, we investigated the effects of DDR1 on the invasion and metastasis in gastric cancer (GC) via epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT). Immunohistochemistry analysis was used to detect DDR1, E-cadherin, and Vimentin expression in GC tissues as well as DDR1 expression in GC cell lines and normal gastric epithelial cells. The relationship(More)
In Chinese cabbage (Brassica rapa L. ssp. pekinensis), the locus associated with orange inner leaves has been mapped. The mechanism responsible for carotenoid pigment synthesis in orange inner leaves of Chinese cabbage is still unclear, however, and limited molecular research has been conducted on the candidate gene. In this study, high-performance liquid(More)
Introgression breeding is a widely used method for the genetic improvement of crop plants; however, the mechanism underlying candidate gene flow patterns during hybridization is poorly understood. In this study, we used a powerful pipeline to investigate a Chinese cabbage (Brassica rapa L. ssp. pekinensis) introgression line with the anthocyanin(More)
The Brassica genus comprises many economically important worldwide cultivated crops. The well-established model of the Brassica genus, U's triangle, consists of three basic diploid plant species (Brassica rapa, Brassica oleracea, and Brassica nigra) and three amphidiploid species (Brassica napus, Brassica juncea, and Brassica carinata) that arose through(More)
Anthocyanins are the major pigments responsible for purple coloration in flowers, fruits and leaves, and the genes involved in their biosynthetic pathway have been identified in many plants. A purple-leaf Chinese cabbage (Brassica rapa L. ssp. pekinensis) was bred by interspecies crossing between Chinese cabbage and purple-leaf mustard [Brassica juncea (L.)(More)
