 Virus isolate Y3V, obtained from tobacco showing leaf curl symptoms in Yunnan, China, had particles with the size and morphology typical of geminiviruses. In reactions with a set of monoclonal antibodies raised against begomoviruses, Y3V was readily differentiated from two previously studied Chinese Begomovirus isolates. The complete nucleotide sequence of(More)
The importance of diseases of tomato caused by begomoviruses is increasing worldwide. Here, we report that several begomoviruses are associated with tomato leaf curl disease in Yunnan province, China. 14 tomato samples showing leaf curl symptoms were collected in three districts in Yunnan, and they fell into four groups according to their reaction with a(More)
Stearoyl-CoA desaturase (SCD) is a multifunctional complex enzyme important in the cellular biosynthesis of fatty acids. The present study was to investigate the association of the SCD gene with milk production traits in dairy cattle. Two single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) (g.6926A>G and g.8646A>G) in introns 3 and 4, and three SNPs (g.10153A>G,(More)
 Virus isolate Y23V, obtained from squash showing leaf curl symptoms in Yunnan, China, was readily differentiated from four studied Chinese begomovirus isolates in reactions with a set of monoclonal antibodies raised against begomoviruses. The complete nucleotide sequence (2714 nts) of the DNA-A-like molecule of Y23V was determined. The DNA-A of Y23V is(More)
During the past decade, fruit aroma biosynthetic pathways were established in some climacteric fruits, such as tomato, apple, and melon. Inhibition of ethylene biosynthesis or its action in these fruits can reduce the production of fruit volatiles. Furthermore, ethylene partially regulates expression of a few important enzyme genes in fruit volatile(More)
The outbred Sprague–Dawley (SD) rats, similar to the inbred Lewis (LEW) rats, have been recently demonstrated to be highly susceptible to adjuvant-induced arthritis (AIA). We herein compared AIA in SD and LEW rats in terms of clinical, histological, radiological, and immuno-inflammatory features. The results showed that, following inoculation with a ground(More)
The Saccharomyces cerevisiae TPT1 gene plays a role in removing the 2′-phosphate from ligated tRNA during the maturation of pre-tRNA. Here we reported the cloning and characterization of the human TRPT1 gene as a homolog of yeast TPT1. The TRPT1 gene is located at human chromosome 11q13 and encodes a polypeptide of 253 amino acids. BLAST searches with its(More)
In this paper, we introduce a new Randomised Hough Transform aimed at improving curve detection accuracy and robustness, as well as computational efficiency. Robustness and accuracy improvement is achieved by analytically propagating the errors with image pixels to the estimated curve parameters. The errors with the curve parameters are then used to(More)
