Drought stress is one of the major limiting factors for maize production. With the availability of maize B73 reference genome and whole-genome resequencing of 15 maize inbreds, common variants (CV) and clustering analyses were applied to identify non-synonymous SNPs (nsSNPs) and corresponding candidate genes for drought tolerance. A total of 524 nsSNPs that(More)
Genetic relationship of a newly discovered teosinte from Nicaragua, Zea nicaraguensis with waterlogging tolerance, was determined based on randomly amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) markers and the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) sequences of nuclear ribosomal DNA using 14 accessions from Zea species. RAPD analysis showed that a total of 5,303 fragments(More)
BACKGROUND Estimating the prevalence of persistent vegetative state (PVS) following severe traumatic brain injury (sTBI) and its change over time is important for the study of the disease. OBJECTIVE To estimate the prevalence of PVS at six months after sTBI and its trend over the past four decades, and to explore the effect of demographic data, such as(More)
Allopolyploidization plays the special role in the evolution of many crops. Moreover, the evolution in early stage of some allopolyploidization events is predicted to be effected by nuclear-cytoplasmic interactions. Maize and teosintes are well model system for study of genetic recombination in allopolyploidization. In order to investigate the effects of(More)
BACKGROUND Intracranial pressure (ICP) monitoring is widely used in the management of patients with severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). However, there is limited evidence about the efficacy of ICP monitoring in older subjects (aged ≥65 years). This study evaluated the effect of intraventricular ICP monitoring on the outcome of older adults suffering from a(More)
Cytoplasmic male sterility (CMS)-C is one of the most attractive sources of male sterility in the production of hybrid maize. However, the abortion mechanism of CMS-C is currently unknown. The major aim of this work was to characterize the expression of genes and proteins during pollen abortion. The materials assayed included CMS-C line C48-2, its(More)
