The results indicated that the SnRK2 protein kinase family has evolved specifically for hyperosmotic stress signaling and that individual members have acquired distinct regulatory properties, including ABA responsiveness by modifying the C-terminal domain.
Abscisic acid-activated SNRK2 protein kinases function in the gene-regulation pathway of ABA signal transduction by phosphorylating ABA response element-binding factors.

It is shown that transient overexpression in cultured cell protoplasts of these ABA-activated SnRK2 protein kinases leads to the activation of an ABRE-regulated promoter, suggesting that these kinases are involved in the gene-regulation pathway of ABA signalling.
Evidence for social parasitism of early insect societies by Cretaceous rove beetles
It is inferred that the advent of eusociality led automatically and unavoidably to selection for social parasitism, and the antiquity and adaptive flexibility of aleocharines made them among the first organisms to engage in this type of symbiosis.
Bombyx mori Midgut Membrane Protein P252, Which Binds to Bacillus thuringiensis Cry1A, Is a Chlorophyllide-Binding Protein, and the Resulting Complex Has Antimicrobial Activity
This is the first report ever to show clear, concrete binding characteristics of the midgut protein to form an RFP having significant antimicrobial activity, termed Bm252RFP.
Scydmobisetia gen. nov., the first definite Glandulariini from Upper Cretaceous Burmese amber (Coleoptera: Staphylinidae: Scydmaeninae)
Integrated phylogenomics and fossil data illuminate the evolution of beetles
This divergence time analysis recovered an evolutionary timescale congruent with the fossil record: a late Carboniferous origin of Coleoptera, a late Paleozoic origin of all modern beetle suborders, and a Triassic–Jurassic origin of most extant families.
Development of a New Rapid Isolation Device for Circulating Tumor Cells (CTCs) Using 3D Palladium Filter and Its Application for Genetic Analysis
A new filtration-based, sensitive CTC isolation device is developed that reveals that CTC increased with progression of metastasis, and a significant increase in the number of CTCs from the blood of patients with metastatic breast cancer was observed compared with patients without metastasis and healthy volunteers.
