In Arabidopsis, trichome formation is regulated by the interplay of R3 MYBs and several others transcription factors including the WD40-repeat protein TRANSPARENT TESTA GLABRA1 (TTG1), the R2R3 MYB transcription factor GLABRA1 (GL1), the bHLH transcription factor GLABRA3 (GL3) or ENHANCER OF GLABRA3 (EGL3), and the homeodomain protein GLABRA2 (GL2). R3 MYBs(More)
Plant hormone auxin regulates most, if not all aspects of plant growth and development, including lateral root formation, organ pattering, apical dominance, and tropisms. Peptide hormones are peptides with hormone activities. Some of the functions of peptide hormones in regulating plant growth and development are similar to that of auxin, however, the(More)
BACKGROUND Combined methylmalonic aciduria and homocystinuria, cblC type (cblC disease), is the most common inborn disorder of cobalamin metabolism. This disorder is caused by MMACHC gene mutations, and it is usually diagnosed in the early neonatal period. Late-onset cblC is rare and difficult to recognize due to a wide diversity of symptoms.

OBJECTIVE Pituitary stalk interruption syndrome (PSIS) is characterized by the absence of pituitary stalk, pituitary hypoplasia, and ectopic posterior pituitary. Due to the rarity of PSIS, clinical data are limited, especially in Chinese people. Herein, we analyzed the clinical characteristics of patients diagnosed with PSIS from our center over 10 years.(More)
Aux/IAA proteins are transcriptional repressors that control auxin signaling by interacting with auxin response factors (ARFs). So far all of the identified Aux/IAA mutants with auxin-related phenotypes in Arabidopsis and rice (Oryza sativa) are dominant gain-of-function mutants, with mutations in Domain II that affected stability of the corresponding(More)
The objective of this study was to improve the knowledge of the clinical and MRI presentation of general paresis of the insane (GPI) and achieve its early diagnosis. Fifteen patients with GPI were gathered. Their clinical data and brain MRI information were analyzed. The age range was 33-62 years (mean: 48·8 years). The disease lasted 34 days-28 months(More)
Neural structures change with age but there is no consensus on the exact processes involved. This study tested the hypothesis that white and grey matter in the language network changes during aging according to a "last in, first out" process. The fractional anisotropy (FA) of white matter and cortical thickness of grey matter were measured in 36(More)
