Rather, Barbosa is (and is aware that he is) arguing that a different meaning should be associated(More)
BACKGROUND Isatis indigotica, the source of the traditional Chinese medicine Radix isatidis (Ban-Lan-Gen), is an extremely important economical crop in China. To facilitate biological, biochemical and molecular research on the medicinal chemicals in I. indigotica, here we report the first I. indigotica transcriptome generated by RNA sequencing (RNA-seq).

The GRAS gene family is one of the most important plant-specific gene families, which encodes transcriptional regulators and plays an essential role in plant development and physiological processes. The GRAS gene family has been well characterized in many higher plants such as Arabidopsis, rice, Chinese cabbage, tomato and tobacco. In this study, we(More)
PURPOSE This study aims to screen microRNAs (miRNAs), for an early diagnosis of colorectal cancer, by deep sequencing and evaluation of total miRNAs using clinical samples from a Chinese patient population. METHODS Total small RNAs from normal colonic mucosa, colonic adenomas, and colorectal cancer tissues were prepared for miRNA analysis by deep(More)
Low shear stress plays a crucial role in the initiation and progression of atherosclerotic lesions. However, the detailed mechanisms of these processes remain unclear. In this study, the effect of low shear stress on endothelial cell autophagy and its potential mechanism were investigated. Results showed autophagy dysfunction and ten-eleven translocation 2(More)
