The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of specific NF-κB inhibitor pyrrolidine dithiocarbamate (PDTC) on inflammatory response and cardiac function in a rat model of coronary microembolization (CME). CME was developed by injecting a suspension of microthrombotic particles (MTPs) into the left ventricle when obstructing the ascending aorta.(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS LATERAL ORGAN BOUNDARIES DOMAIN 29 (LBD29), an important molecule downstream of auxin response factors ARF7 and ARF19, has a critical role in lateral root formation in Arabidopsis thaliana. The cell cycle activation of pericycle cells and their specification triggered by auxin are crucial for the initiation of lateral roots. In this(More)
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)
Stipa purpurea, an endemic forage of the grass family in the Tibetan Plateau, is highly resistant to drought. Dehydrins (DHNs) are stress proteins involved in plant protective reactions against environmental stress. In this study, the full-length DHN open reading frame (ORF) cloned from S. purpurea, named SpDHN1, was 816 nucleotides length and encoded a(More)
UNLABELLED This study presents an analysis of leave and rood morphology, biochemical and proteomics approach as adaptation strategies of the alpine plant Potentilla saundersiana in an altitude gradient. Several plant physiological parameter, including root and leaf architecture, leaf photosynthesis capacity, specific leaf area (SLA) and leaf nitrogen(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)
The objective of the present research was to optimize the model of sugar content in navel orange for improving the detection presicion by the online near infrared spectroscopy. The reference wavelength was chosen by coefficient of variation of the different wavelengths in the calibration set in the wavelength range of 700.28 - 933.79 nm. Then the spectra(More)
