Glycinebetaine enhances the tolerance of tomato plants to high temperature during germination of seeds and growth of seedlings.
The results suggest that GB, either applied exogenously or accumulated in vivo in codA-transgenic seeds, enhanced the expression of heat-shock genes in and improved the tolerance to high temperature of tomato seeds during germination. Expand
Genetic Engineering of Glycine Betaine Biosynthesis Reduces Heat-Enhanced Photoinhibition by Enhancing Antioxidative Defense and Alleviating Lipid Peroxidation in Tomato
In accordance with a lower relative electrolyte conductivity and malondialdehyde content, the activities of antioxidant enzymes were higher in transgenic lines than in WT plants, indicating that the degree of membrane injury in the transgenic plants was lower compared to the WT plants. Expand
A Cotton Annexin Affects Fiber Elongation and Secondary Cell Wall Biosynthesis Associated with Ca2+ Influx, ROS Homeostasis, and Actin Filament Reorganization1
Transgenic analysis and functional studies demonstrated that an annexin gene that is preferentially expressed in fibers, GhFAnnxA, was found to be significantly associated with various cotton fiber traits and the role of ROS in fiber development was clarified. Expand
Retraction Note to: Overexpression of a cotton annexin gene, GhAnn1, enhances drought and salt stress tolerance in transgenic cotton
The authors are retracting this article because irregularities were involved in the reuse of stomatal images in Figure 9.
RETRACTED ARTICLE: Overexpression of a cotton annexin gene, GhAnn1, enhances drought and salt stress tolerance in transgenic cotton
It is demonstrated that GhAnn 1 plays an important role in the abiotic stress response, and that overexpression of GhAnn1 in transgenic cotton improves salt and drought tolerance. Expand
19-[(1'S,4'R)-4'-Hydroxy-1'-methoxy-2'-oxopentyl]geldanamycin, a natural geldanamycin analogue from Streptomyces hygroscopicus 17997.
The structures of the two compounds were determined to be 19-[(1'S,4'R)-4'-hydroxy-1'-methoxy-2'-oxopentyl]-4,5-dihydrogeldanamycin (1 and 2), respectively, and 1 and 2 showed increased water solubility and decreased cytotoxicity against HepG2 cells. Expand
Cytotoxic Dibohemamines D-F from a Streptomyces Species.
Three dimeric analogues of bohemamines, dibohemamines D-F (1-3), together with dibohemamine A (4), were isolated from Streptomyces sp. CPCC 200497. Their structures were solved using a combination ofExpand
Cytotoxic and Antibacterial Cervinomycins B1-4 from a Streptomyces Species.
AntiSMASH analysis of genome DNA of Streptomyces CPCC 204980, a soil isolate with potent antibacterial activity, revealed a gene cluster for polycyclic xanthones, which are toxic to human cancer cells and active against Gram-positive bacteria. Expand
Characterization of a novel fungal disease that infects the gametophyte of Pyropia yezoensis (Bangiales, Rhodophyta)
This is the first report to show that Alternaria causes red rot disease in P. yezoensis, an economically important red alga that is extensively cultured in China. Expand
Association of mutation patterns in GyrA and ParC genes with quinolone resistance levels in lactic acid bacteria
The quinolone resistance of 19 lactic acid bacterial strains belonging to the genera Enterococcus and Lactobacillus isolated from the natural fermented koumiss and yoghurt were investigated to explore the association of the resistance with the mutation patterns in gyrA and parC genes, as is currently recommended by the Food and Agriculture Organization/World Health Organization Joint Expert Committee.
