Molecular modification of triacylglycerol accumulation by over-expression of DGAT1 to produce canola with increased seed oil content under field conditions
The final step in the Kennedy pathway for seed oil synthesis is catalyzed by an acyl-CoA-dependent diacylglycerol acyltransferase, DGAT1, which is cloned from both Arabido and Arabido genes. Expand
Three New Compounds from Aspergillus terreus PT06-2 Grown in a High Salt Medium
To investigate the structurally novel and bioactive natural compounds from marine-derived microorganisms under high salinity, the fungus Aspergillus terreus PT06-2 was isolated from the sediment ofExpand
HIV Preexposure Prophylaxis, by Race and Ethnicity — United States, 2014–2016
It is found that nearly six times as many white men and women were prescribed PrEP as were black men andWomen, highlighting gaps in effective PrEP implementation efforts in the United States. Expand
Aspergiolide A, a novel anthraquinone derivative with naphtho [1,2,3 -de]chromene -2,7 -dione skeleton isolated from a marine-derived fungus Aspergillus glaucus
Aspergiolide A (1), an anthraquinone derivative with naphtho[1,2,3-de]chromene-2,7-dione skeleton, has been isolated from cultures of a marine-derived fungus Aspergillus glaucus. The structure andExpand
Indole-diterpenoids with anti-H1N1 activity from the aciduric fungus Penicillium camemberti OUCMDZ-1492.
The results showed that 3-oxo, 4b-hydroxy, and 9-isopentenyl substitutions tend to increase the anti-H1N1 activity of hexacyclic indole-diterpenoids. Expand
Anti-influenza virus polyketides from the acid-tolerant fungus Penicillium purpurogenum JS03-21.
Fractionation of the ethyl acetate extract of an acid-tolerant fungus resulted in the isolation of six new compounds, purpurquinones A-C, purpuresters A and B, and 2,6,7-trihydroxy-3-methylnaphthalene-1,4-dione, which exhibited significant antiviral activity against H1N1. Expand
Seven new prenylated indole diketopiperazine alkaloids from holothurian- derived fungus Aspergillus fumigatus
Seven new prenylated indole diketopiperazine alkaloids, including compound 1, 3 spirotryprostatins C–E (2–4), 2 derivatives of fumitremorgin B (5 and 6), and 13-oxoverruculogen (7), have beenExpand
Novel cyclic hexapeptides from marine-derived fungus, Aspergillus sclerotiorum PT06-1.
Two novel cyclic hexapeptides containing both anthranilic acid and dehydroamino acid units were isolated from the marine-derived halotolerant Aspergillus sclerotiorum PT06-1 in a nutrient-limited hypersaline medium and showed moderate antifungal activity. Expand
Α-pyrones and diketopiperazine derivatives from the marine-derived actinomycete Nocardiopsis dassonvillei HR10-5.
Three new α-pyrones, nocapyrones E-G (1-3), and three new diketopiperazine derivatives, nocazines A-C (4-6), together with a new oxazoline compound, nocazoline A (7), were isolated from theExpand
Polyketides from Penicillium sp. JP-1, an endophytic fungus associated with the mangrove plant Aegiceras corniculatum.
Four polyketides, leptosphaerone C (1), penicillenone (2), arugosin I (3) and 9-demethyl FR-901235 (4), as well as five known compounds, bacillosporin A (5), bacillosporin C (6), sequoiamonascin DExpand
