The Mitochondrial Genome of Elodia flavipalpis Aldrich (Diptera: Tachinidae) and the Evolutionary Timescale of Tachinid Flies
Tachinid flies are natural enemies of many lepidopteran and coleopteran pests of forests, crops, and fruit trees. In order to address the lack of genetic data in this economically important group, weExpand

N-Glycosylation of Effector Proteins by an α-1,3-Mannosyltransferase Is Required for the Rice Blast Fungus to Evade Host Innate Immunity[W][OPEN]
This work identifies an α-1,3-mannosyltransferase that mediates the N-glycosylation of effector proteins in the rice blast fungus. The N-glycosylation is required to maintain protein stability andExpand

Effects of lead and cadmium co-exposure on bone mineral density in a Chinese population.
It has been indicated that both cadmium (Cd) and lead (Pb) may have adverse effects on the bone. However, most studies have only focused on a single factor. The primary and main and interactiveExpand
