We describe cisRED, a database for conserved regulatory elements that are identified and ranked by a genome-scale computational system (www.cisred.org). The database and high-throughput predictive pipeline are designed to address diverse target genomes in the context of rapidly evolving data resources and tools. Motifs are predicted in promoter regions(More)
Photosynthetic characteristics of ear and flag leaves of wheat species, tetraploid Triticum dicoccoides Kom and hexaploid Bima1, were studied in plants grown under well-watered (WW) and water-stressed (WS) conditions. Compared to ears, flag leaves exhibited higher photosynthetic rate (P N) at the filling stage, but more severe decrease under WS. P N in the(More)
It is well known that semi-solid forming could only obtain coarse-grained microstructure in a few alloy systems with a low melting point, such as aluminum and magnesium alloys. This work presents that semi-solid forming could also produce novel bimodal microstructure composed of nanostructured matrix and micro-sized (CoFe)Ti2 twins in a titanium alloy,(More)
The surface states of 3D topological insulators (TIs) exhibit a helical spin texture with spin locked at right angles with momentum. The chirality of this spin texture is expected to invert crossing the Dirac point, a property that has been experimentally observed by optical probes. Here, we directly determine the chirality below the Dirac point by(More)
Silkworm (Bombyx mori) is an important economic insect with a fat body that plays a crucial role in the storage and transfer of nutrients. It is also known that TiO2 nanoparticles (NPs) can improve feed efficiency and promote silk protein synthesis in the silkworm. In this study, we profiled gene expression in the silkworm fat body after TiO2 NP treatment,(More)
We propose a novel semiconductor compatible path for nano-graphene synthesis using precursors containing C-Br bonding and liquid catalyst. The unique combination of CBr4 as precursor and Ga as catalyst leads to efficient C precipitation at a synthesis temperature of 200 °C or lower. The non-wetting nature of liquid Ga on tested substrates limits nano-scale(More)
We have earlier reported that the endophyte infection can enhance photosynthetic capacity and antioxidant enzyme activities in rice exposed to salinity stress. Now, the changes in primary photochemistry of photosystem (PS) II induced by Na2CO3 stress in endophyte-infected (E+) and endophyte-uninfected (E-) rice seedlings were studied using chlorophyll a(More)
The present study examined the effect of salicylic acid (SA) pre-treatment on soybean seedlings exposed to cadmium and/or UV-B stress. Dry mass, pigment content, net photosynthetic rate (PN), stomatal conductance (gs), and transpiration rate (E) were decreased by the Cd and/or UV-B stress. SA alleviated the adverse effects of Cd and/or UV-B on growth,(More)
