We report the identification and characterization of an Arabidopsis mutant, hos10-1 (for high expression of osmotically responsive genes), in which the expression of RD29A and other stress-responsive genes is activated to higher levels or more rapidly activated than in wild-type by low temperature, exogenous abscisic acid (ABA), or salt stress (NaCl). The(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are important for plant development and stress responses. However, factors regulating miRNA metabolism are not completely understood. SICKLE (SIC), a proline-rich protein critical for development and abiotic stress tolerance of Arabidopsis, was identified in this study. Loss-of-function sic-1 mutant plants exhibited a serrated,(More)
P2P applications appear to emerge as ultimate killer applications due to their ability to construct highly dynamic overlay topologies with rapidly-varying and unpredictable traffic dynamics, which can constitute a serious challenge even for significantly over-provisioned IP networks. As a result, ISPs are facing new, severe network management problems that(More)
Cold temperatures trigger the ICE1-CBF-COR transcriptional cascade in plants, which reprograms gene expression to increase freezing tolerance. In this issue of Developmental Cell, Ding et al. (2015) report that cold stress activates the protein kinase OST1 to phosphorylate and thereby stabilize and stimulate ICE1. This enhances plant tolerance to freezing(More)
Transmitting tissue-specific (TTS) protein is a pollen tube growth-promoting and attracting glycoprotein located in the stylar transmitting tissue extracellular matrix of the pistil of tobacco. The TTS protein backbones have a deduced molecular mass of about 28 kDa, whereas the glycosylated stylar TTS proteins have apparent molecular masses ranging between(More)
The phytohormone abscisic acid (ABA) is important for growth, development and stress responses in plants. Recent research has identified ABA receptors and signalling components that regulate seed germination and stomatal closure. However, proteins that regulate ABA signalling remain poorly understood. Here we use a forward-genetic screen to identify rbm25-1(More)
Ocimum americanum var. pilosum is a chilling-sensitive, widely distributed plant that is consumed as a vegetable in central and southern China. To increase our understanding of cold stress responses in this species, we performed de novo transcriptome assembly for O. americanum var. pilosum and compared the transcriptomes of plants grown under normal and low(More)

OBJECTIVE To evaluate the diagnostic value and treatment guidance of lacrimal magnetic resonance hydrography (LMRH) and lacrimal endoscopy examination in lacrimal duct obstruction. METHODS A retrospective analysis of clinical and imaging data of 59 patients with epiphora who had LMRH examination in Tongji Hospital during June 2013 and January 2014.(More)
