Antagonistic HLH/bHLH Transcription Factors Mediate Brassinosteroid Regulation of Cell Elongation and Plant Development in Rice and Arabidopsis[C][W][OA]
In rice (Oryza sativa), brassinosteroids (BRs) induce cell elongation at the adaxial side of the lamina joint to promote leaf bending. We identified a rice mutant (ili1-D) showing an increased laminaExpand

Antibacterial Activity of Silver-nanoparticles Against Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli
The antibacterial activities of silver nanoparticles (Ag-NPs) were studied with respect to Gram-positive Staphylococcus aureus and Gram-negative Escherichia coli by observing the bacterial cellsExpand

Elongation and gravitropic responses of Arabidopsis roots are regulated by brassinolide and IAA.
Exogenously applied brassinolide (BL) increased both gravitropic curvature and length of primary roots of Arabidopsis at low concentration (10(-10) M), whereas at higher concentration, BL furtherExpand

Inhibition of the Bacterial Surface Protein Anchoring Transpeptidase Sortase by Isoquinoline Alkaloids
The inhibitory activity of Coptis chinensis rhizome-derived material was evaluated against sortase, a bacterial surface protein anchoring transpeptidase, from Staphylococcus aureus ATCC 6538p andExpand

Brassinosteroids control AtEXPA5 gene expression in Arabidopsis thaliana.
To elucidate the spatial and temporal roles of EXPANSIN A5 (AtEXPA5) in growth and development of Arabidopsis thaliana, phenotypic alterations in loss-of-function mutants were observed. Seedlings ofExpand

An Arabidopsis Ran-binding protein, AtRanBP1c, is a co-activator of Ran GTPase-activating protein and requires the C-terminus for its cytoplasmic localization
Ran-binding proteins (RanBPs) are a group of proteins that bind to Ran (Ras-related nuclear small GTP-binding protein), and thus either control the GTP/GDP-bound states of Ran or help couple the RanExpand

Changes of the Structural and Biomechanical Properties of the Bovine Pericardium after the Removal of α-Gal Epitopes by Decellularization and α-Galactosidase Treatment
Background Bovine pericardium is one of the most widely used materials in bioprosthetic heart valves. Immunologic responses have been implicated as potential causes of limited durability of xenogenicExpand

Influence of auxins, cytokinins, and nitrogen on production of rutin from callus and adventitious roots of the white mulberry tree (Morusalba L.)
Rutin is an economically valuable flavone compound with anticancer activity, dietary effects, and anti-aging activity. In this study, callus and adventitious roots were induced from three MorusExpand

Hormonal regulation of stem cell maintenance in roots.
During plant embryogenesis, the apical-basal axis is established and both the shoot apical meristem (SAM) and the root apical meristem (RAM) are formed. In both meristems, there are slowly dividingExpand
