Previous efforts to improve salt tolerance in crop plants have met with only limited success. Bacteria of the genus Deinococcus are known for their ability to survive highly stressful conditions, and therefore(More)
Gram-negative bacterium Escherichia coli and the Gram-positive Deinococcus radiodurans fundamentally differ in their cell structures and gene regulations. We have previously reported that IrrE, a Deinococcus genus-specific global regulator, confers significantly enhanced tolerance to various abiotic stresses. To better understand the global effects of IrrE(More)

The current study presents a case of gastric Schwannoma misdiagnosed as malignant gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) by esophagogastroduodenoscopy, endoscopic ultrasonography, and contrast-enhanced or not enhanced and (18)F-FDG PET/CT imaging.
