Cell suspension cultures of Lilium formosanum Wallace were initiated from bulb scale-derived calli and subcultured every 2 weeks using a medium containing 5 µM 4-amino-3,5,6-trichloropicolinic acid (picloram). Almost all cell clumps from the suspension cultures developed numerous somatic embryos following their transfer onto a plant growth regulator-free(More)
By using the rice EST database, we have isolated a 2.8 kb cDNA, termed Oryza sativa ORC1 (OsORC1), from rice (O. sativa) encoding a protein that shows homology with the eukaryotic ORC1 proteins. Alignment of the OsORC1 protein sequence with the sequence of ORC1 from human and yeasts S. cerevisiae and S. pombe showed a high degree of sequence homology (38.7,(More)
The neuropeptides inducing dark color in albino nymphs of the migratory locust Locusta migratoria were isolated from the larval brain of the silkworm, Bombyx mori and from the adult corpora cardiaca (CC) of the cricket Gryllus bimaculatus, respectively, and their amino acid sequences identified. The two peptides isolated from the two different species are(More)
AIMS Studies of overactive bladder (OAB) have shown urothelial/suburothelial changes and increased bladder afferents, while in the brain the frontal micturition area that normally suppresses the bladder is deactivated. It has been unclear whether anticholinergic medication could reverse this suppression. To address this question, we performed a real-time(More)
