OBJECTIVE To evaluate the influence of polymorphisms in nucleotide excision repair (NER) and homologous recombination repair (HRR) pathways on the development of osteosarcoma patients. METHODS Genotypes of ERCC1 rs11615 and rs3212986, ERCC2 rs1799793 and rs13181, NBN rs709816 and rs1805794, RAD51 rs1801320, rs1801321 and rs12593359, and XRCC3 rs861539(More)
Thanatin(S) is an analog of thanatin, an insect antimicrobial peptide possessing strong and broad spectrum of antimicrobial activity. In order to investigate if the thanatin could be used in engineering transgenic plants for increased resistance against phytopathogens, the synthetic thanatin(S) was introduced into Arabidopsis thaliana plants. To increase(More)
Diapause-specific peptide (DSP) is an insect antimicrobial peptide, composed of 41 amino acid residues including six cysteines and isolated from diapausing adults of the leaf beetle Gastrophysa atrocyaneais. Recent research results have been demonstrated that in vitro, DSP has selective antifungal activity against the higher animal pathogenic fungus(More)
