 We used sequence variation of the atpB-rbcL intergenic spacer of cpDNA and nested clade analysis to assess the phylogeographic pattern of Michelia formosana, a species restricted to Taiwan and the Ryukyus. In total, 31 haplotypes were identified and clustered into four major chlorotypes. Genetic composition of nearly all populations was heterogeneous and(More)
Amyloid precursor protein (APP) has several caspase cleavage sites in its C-terminal cytoplasmic domain and N-terminal extracellular domain. Caspase cleavages of APP at its cytosolic tail may result in releasing the domain and inducing cell death. During apoptosis, the N-terminal domain may also be processed at amino acids 197 and 219 by caspases leading to(More)
Moth orchids (Phalaenopsis) are among the top-traded blooming potted plants in the world. To explore mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) markers for species identification, we located simple sequence repeats in the mtDNA of Phalaenopsis aphrodite subsp. formosana and then pre-screened them for polymorphic markers by their comparison with corresponding mtDNA regions(More)
