B-cell lymphoma 2 (BCL-2) ovarian killer (BOK) is a BCL-2 family protein with high homology to the multidomain proapoptotic proteins BAX and BAK, yet Bok(-/-) and even Bax(-/-)Bok(-/-) and Bak(-/-)Bok(-/-) mice were reported to have no overt phenotype or apoptotic defects in response to a host of classical stress stimuli. These surprising findings were(More)
We performed a landscape-scale investigation to compare the arbuscular mycorrhizal fungal (AMF) communities between grasslands and farmlands in the farming-pastoral ecotone of northern China. AMF richness and community composition were examined with 454 pyrosequencing. Structural equation modelling (SEM) and multivariate analyses were applied to disentangle(More)
In humans and animals lacking functional LDL receptor (LDLR), LDL from plasma still readily traverses the endothelium. To identify the pathways of LDL uptake, a genome-wide RNAi screen was performed in endothelial cells and cross-referenced with GWAS-data sets. Here we show that the activin-like kinase 1 (ALK1) mediates LDL uptake into endothelial cells.(More)
The B-cell lymphoma 2 (BCL-2) ovarian killer (BOK) is an intriguing BCL-2 family protein with highest homology to the multidomain executioner proteins BAX and BAK, yet its role in apoptosis regulation has been questionable because of the reported absence of phenotypic findings in Bok mice (1). In an independent Bok model, we identify a selective apoptotic(More)
Multiphase core-shell nanowires have been fabricated by controlling the ion transport processes of the microfluids in the nanochannels of the template. Both forced convection and pulsed potential induced migration can be applied to tune the morphologies of the nanostructures obtained by manipulating the ion transport during electrodeposition. The morphology(More)
