Benthic diatoms are the main component in many aquatic ecosystems such as streams, creeks and rivers, and they function as important primary producers and chemical modulators for other organisms in the ecosystems. In this study, the composition of benthic diatoms was investigated and further explored the primary physicals and chemicals affecting their(More)
Pupae from the Chinese wild mulberry silkworm,Bombyx mandarina, and 11 representative strains of the domesticated silkworm,Bombyx mori were selected for preparation of mitochondrial DNA. The 5′-end fragments ofcytochrome b genes (Cytb) were generated by polymerase chain reaction products and sequenced directly. The homologous sequences of the JapaneseB.(More)
In this study, we report a novel cellulase [β-1,4-endoglucanase (EGase), EC] cDNA (Bh-EGase II) belonging to the glycoside hydrolase family (GHF) 45 from the beetle Batocera horsfieldi. The Bh-EGase II gene spans 720bp and consists of a single exon coding for 239 amino acid residues. Bh-EGase II showed 93.72% protein sequence identity to Ag-EGase II(More)
The egg stage is an important stage in the silkworm (Bombyx mori) life cycle. Normal silkworm eggs are usually short, elliptical, and laterally flattened, with a sometimes hollowed surface on the lateral side. However, the eggs laid by homozygous recessive "Ming" lethal egg mutants (l-e(m)) lose water and become concaved around 1h, ultimately exhibiting a(More)
In an attempt to develop potent and selective antitumor agents, a series of novel 1,4-disubstituted phthalazine derivatives was designed and synthesized. All the prepared compounds were screened for their cytotoxic activities against A549, HT-29 and MDA-MB-231 cell lines in vitro. Among them, seven compounds (7a-7e, 7j and 7i) displayed excellent(More)
In this study, the effects of solvent and magnesium chloride hexahydrate (MgCl2·6H2O) on the polymorphism of polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) thin films were systematically investigated. Wherein, N,N-dimethylformamide (DMF) and water with different volume ratio were used as mixed solvents to obtain the solution casting films, P series. In addition, MgCl2·6H2O(More)
Previous studies have shown that the 3' UTR of BmVMP23 was destroyed by an inserted fragment, and the BmVMP23 expression was downregulated in the lethal egg of "Ming" (l-e(m)). In this study, we found a miRNA (bmo-miR-1a-3p) that matches the 3' UTR sequence of BmVMP23 perfectly. The relationship between bmo-miR-1a-3p and the BmVMP23 expression was examined(More)
In the silkworm, metamorphosis and moulting are regulated by ecdysone hormone and juvenile hormone. The subject in the present study is a silkworm mutant that does not moult in the 2nd instar (nm2). Genetic analysis indicated that the nm2 mutation is controlled by a recessive gene and is homozygous lethal. Based on positional cloning, nm2 was located in a(More)
