The ligandin activity of specific glutathione S-transferases (GSTs) is necessary for the transport of anthocyanins from the cytosol to the plant vacuole. Five GSTs were purified from Vitis vinifera… Expand
The contamination and control of biological pollutants in mass cultivation of microalgae.
The potential of microalgae as a biomass feedstock for biofuels, bioproducts and as a technological solution for CO(2) fixation is subject to intense academic and industrial researches. However,… Expand
Attached cultivation technology of microalgae for efficient biomass feedstock production.
The potential of microalgae biofuel has not been realized because of low productivity and high costs associated with the current cultivation systems. In this paper, an attached cultivation method was… Expand
Removal of nutrients from piggery wastewater using struvite precipitation and pyrogenation technology.
In this paper, removal of nutrients from piggery wastewater by struvite crystallization was conducted using a combined technology of low-cost magnesium source in struvite precipitation and recycling… Expand
Chromosome-encoded gene cluster for the metabolic pathway that converts aniline to TCA-cycle intermediates in Delftia tsuruhatensis AD9.
- Quanfeng Liang, M. Takeo, M. Chen, W. Zhang, Y. Xu, Min Lin
- Biology, Medicine
- 1 October 2005
Delftia tsuruhatensis AD9 was isolated as an aniline-degrading bacterium from the soil surrounding a textile dyeing plant. The gene cluster involved in aniline degradation was cloned from the total… Expand
TRB3 Gene Silencing Alleviates Diabetic Cardiomyopathy in a Type 2 Diabetic Rat Model
OBJECTIVE Tribbles 3 (TRB3) is associated with insulin resistance, an important trigger in the development of diabetic cardiomyopathy (DCM). We sought to determine whether TRB3 plays a major role in… Expand
Increased lipid production of the marine oleaginous microalgae Isochrysis zhangjiangensis (Chrysophyta) by nitrogen supplement.
Effects of nitrate feeding on the cell growth and lipid accumulation of marine microalgae Isochrysis zhangjiangensis were investigated. When nitrate was supplied at interval of 24h, instead of 72 h,… Expand
Histone acetyltransferases in rice (Oryza sativa L.): phylogenetic analysis, subcellular localization and expression
BackgroundHistone acetyltransferases (HATs) play an important role in eukaryotic transcription. Eight HATs identified in rice (OsHATs) can be organized into four families, namely the CBP (OsHAC701,… Expand
