In this study, the level of amylose was reduced in wheat seeds by RNAi strategy. Because the synthesis of amylose is catalyzed by the granule-bound starch synthase I (GBSSI or WAXY protein), the Waxy gene of wheat was isolated from wheat seeds by using RT-PCR. Southern analysis confirmed that there were three Waxy genes in wheat genome. Northern(More)
A MADS box gene HoMADS2 was cloned from Hyacinthus orientalis L. in this study. Sequence comparison revealed that HoMADS2 was highly homologous to the class B MADS box genes. Furthermore, phylogenetic analysis showed that HoMADS2 was closely related to PI gene family and this was also supported by the presence of specific diagnostic sites of PI homologs in(More)
Cyclophilin A (hCyp-18), a ubiquitous cytoplasmic peptidyl-prolyl cis/trans isomerase (PPIase), orchestrates HIV-1 core packaging. hCyp-18, incorporated into the virion, enables core uncoating and RNA release and consequently plays a critical role in the viral replication process. hCyp-18 specifically interacts with a single exposed loop of the Gag(More)
