Aux/IAA proteins are transcriptional repressors that control auxin signaling by interacting with auxin response factors (ARFs). So far all of the identified Aux/IAA mutants with auxin-related phenotypes in Arabidopsis and rice (Oryza sativa) are dominant gain-of-function mutants, with mutations in Domain II that affected stability of the corresponding(More)
BACKGROUND Genetic modification, such as the addition of exogenous genes to the MSC genome, is crucial to their use as cellular vehicles. Due to the risks associated with viral vectors such as insertional mutagenesis, the safer nonviral vectors have drawn a great deal of attention. METHODS VEGF, bFGF, vitamin C, and insulin-transferrin-selenium-X were(More)
Reactive oxygen species (ROS) and calcium (Ca2+), two crucial intracellular signaling molecules, have been reported to play important roles in chlorophyll biosynthesis. In this study, we aimed to investigate whether disturbance of chlorophyll synthesis affects chloroplast ROS and Ca2+ homeostases. Chlorophyll biosynthesis was inhibited at the Mg branch by(More)
This study was designed in vitro to investigate the effects of l-carnitine against H2O2-induced oxidative stress in a grass carp (Ctenopharyngodon idellus) ovary cell line (GCO). GCO cells were pre-treated with different concentrations of l-carnitine, followed by incubation with 2.5 mM H2O2 for 1 h to induce oxidative damage. The results indicated that(More)
Auxin/Indole-3-Acetic Acid (Aux/IAA) genes are early auxin response genes ecoding short-lived transcriptional repressors, which regulate auxin signaling in plants by interplay with Auxin Response Factors (ARFs). Most of the Aux/IAA proteins contain four different domains, namely Domain I, Domain II, Domain III, and Domain IV. So far all Aux/IAA mutants with(More)
Calcineurin is highly conserved and regulates growth, conidiation, stress response, and pathogenicity in fungi. However, the functions of calcineurin and its regulatory network in entomopathogenic fungi are not clear. In this study, calcineurin was functionally analyzed by deleting the catalytic subunit MaCnA from the entomopathogenic fungus Metarhizium(More)
