Chlamydomonas sp. ICE-L, isolated from Antarctic coastal marine environments, was selected as a high lipid producer, which may be useful for biodiesel production. The lipophilic fluorescent dye BODIPY505/515 was used to determine the algal lipid content. Lipid bodies stained with BODIPY505/515 have a characteristic green fluorescence, and their volumes were(More)
Oxidative stress plays an important role in Parkinson's disease and other neurodegenerative disorders. Salidroside, a phenylpropanoid glycoside isolated from Rhodiola rosea L., has potent antioxidant properties. In the present study, we investigated the protective activity of salidroside against 1-methyl-4-phenylpyridinium (MPP(+))-induced apoptosis in PC12(More)
Light-harvesting complexes (LHCs) play essential roles in light capture and photoprotection. Although the functional diversity of individual LHCs in many plants has been well described, knowledge regarding the extent of this family in the majority of green algal groups is still limited. In this study, two different LhcSR genes, LhcSR1 and LhcSR2 from(More)
Since 1980s, the Chinese sugar industry has been developing at a fast pace. In the milling year 2007/2008, the total sugar production in China reached 14.83 MT, which was 24.04 % higher than that in previous milling year, and cane sugar production reached 13.67 MT, which was 92.18 % of the total. Guangxi is the largest sugarcane and sugar producer in China,(More)
In order to test torsion performance of automobile drive shaft, a new type torsion test-bed of automobile drive shaft is developed. The actual running condition of drive shaft is simulated completely by the angle adjusting equipment of test-bed, and the pulse loading device combines machine, electricity and hydraulic, which has the characteristic of(More)
Water stress causes considerable yield losses in sugarcane. To investigate differentially expressed genes under water stress, a pot experiment was performed with the sugarcane variety GT21 at three water-deficit levels (mild, moderate, and severe) during the elongation stage and gene expression was analyzed using microarray technology. Physiological(More)
The title compound, [C(8)H(18)N](+)·[B(5)O(6)(OH)(4)](-), has been synthesized under mild solvothermal conditions in the presence of N,N-dimethyl-cyclo-hexyl-amine acting as a template. The structure consists of penta-borate [B(5)O(6)(OH)(4)](-) anions connected through O-H⋯O hydrogen bonds into a three-dimensional framework, with large channels along(More)
BACKGROUND In bacteria, transcription units can be insulated by placing a terminator in front of a promoter. In this way promoter leakage due to the read-through from an upstream gene or RNA polymerase unspecific binding to the DNA is, in principle, removed. Differently from bacterial terminators, yeast S. cerevisiae terminators contain a hexamer sequence,(More)
