Current therapy for pancreatic cancer is multimodal, involving surgery and chemotherapy. However, development of pancreatic cancer therapies requires a thorough evaluation of drug efficacy in vitro before animal testing and subsequent clinical trials. Compared to two-dimensional culture of cell monolayer, three-dimensional (3-D) models more closely mimic(More)
Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PDH) has been implicated in supplying reduced nicotine amide cofactors for biochemical reactions and in modulating the redox state of cells. In this study, the role of G6PDH in thermotolerance of the calli from Przewalskia tangutica and tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum L.) was investigated. Results showed that Przewalskia(More)
Actin is the most abundant protein in eukaryotic cells and is a key cytoskeletal component controlling cell morphology and motility. In this study, four MiACT genes were isolated from mango by homological cloning and designated as MiACT1, MiACT4, MiACT7, and MiACT9. Sequence alignments and phylogenetic analysis demonstrated that the four MiACT genes of(More)
Dendrobium officinale is a traditional Chinese medicinal herb that produces promising bioactive polysaccharides. However, the biosynthetic pathway of polysaccharides in this herb remains to be elucidated. The uridine diphosphate glucose pyrophosphorylase (UGPase) is a key enzyme for the production of UDP-glucose which is a major glycosyl donor for synthesis(More)
The GhMYB9 encodes a R2R3 MYB transcription factor in the upland cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) genome. Our studies show that GhMYB9 predominantly expressed in flowers and fibers. To gain a better understanding of its regulatory mechanism, we isolated the 5′-flanking region of GhMYB9 which was 1 487 bp in length. The cis-acting element prediction shows that(More)
