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)
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)
