The ASYMMETRIC LEAVES2-LIKE/LATERAL ORGAN BOUNDARIES (LOB) DOMAIN (ASL/LBD) genes encode plant-specific nuclear proteins containing the conserved domain AS2/LOB. In this study, the function of a member of the Arabidopsis thaliana AS2/LOB gene family, ASL11/LBD15, was investigated. The results show that ASL11/LBD15 is expressed in the meristems of shoot(More)
Cadmium (Cd) pollution is an environmental problem worldwide. Phytoremediation is a convenient method of removing Cd from both soil and water, but its efficiency is still low, especially in aquatic environments. Scientists have been trying to improve the ability of plants to absorb and accumulate Cd based on interactions between plants and Cd, especially(More)
Plantlets of Populus yunnanensis Dode were examined in a greenhouse for 48 h to analyze their physiological and proteomic responses to sustained heat, drought, and combined heat and drought. Compared with the application of a single stress, simultaneous treatment with both stresses damaged the plantlets more heavily. The plantlets experienced two apparent(More)
Aluminum (Al) is the most abundant metal in the earth’s crust. Al accumulates in erythrocyte and causes toxicity on erythrocyte membrane. The dysfunction of erythrocyte membrane is a potential risk to hypertension. The high Al content in plasma was associated with hypertension. To investigate the effect of AlCl3 on blood pressure and the function of(More)
Aluminum promotes osteoblast (OB) apoptosis. Apoptosis is induced by the disordered calcium homeostasis. Therefore, to investigate the relationship between Al-induced OB apoptosis and calcium homeostasis, calvarium OBs from neonatal rats (3–4 days) were cultured and exposed to 0.048-mg/mL Al3+ or 0.048-mg/mL Al3+ combined with 5 μM BAPTA-AM (OBs were(More)
Variations in elevation limit the growth and distribution of alpine plants because multiple environmental stresses impact plant growth, including sharp temperature shifts, strong ultraviolet radiation exposure, low oxygen content, etc. Alpine plants have developed special strategies to help survive the harsh environments of high mountains, but the internal(More)
With the sequencing of genomes from many organisms now complete and the development of high-throughput sequencing, life science research has entered the functional post-genome era. Therefore, deciphering the function of genes and how they interact is in greater demand. To study an unknown gene, the basic methods are either overexpression or gene knockout by(More)
Layered rare-earth hydroxide (LRH) crystals of (Y0.95Eu0.05)2(OH)5NO3·nH2O with a lateral size of ∼ 300 μm and a thickness of ∼ 9 μm have been synthesized via a hydrothermal reaction of mixed nitrate solutions in the presence of mineralizer NH4NO3 at 200 °C for 24 h. LRH exhibits the ability to undergo intercalation and anion exchange with DS- (C12H25OSO3-)(More)
Well-crystallized (Y0.97-x Tb0.03Eu x )2(OH)5NO3·nH2O (x = 0-0.03) layered rare-earth hydroxide (LRH) nanoflakes of a pure high-hydration phase have been produced by autoclaving from the nitrate/NH4OH reaction system under the optimized conditions of 100 °C and pH ∼7.0. The flakes were then converted into (Y0.97-x Tb0.03Eu x )2O3 phosphor nanoplates with(More)
ASYMMETRIC LEAVES2-LIKE5/LATERAL ORGAN BOUNDARIES DOMAIN 12 (ASL5/LBD12), isolated from Arabidopsis, is a member of the LATERAL ORGAN BOUNDARIES (LOB) domain gene family. Previously, it has been reported that the dominant peacock1-D (pck1-D) mutant, wherein an ASL5 gene activated by a T-DNA lost apical dominance, had epinastic or abaxial leaves and was(More)
