A Single Dominant Gene for Resistance to the Soybean Aphid in the Soybean Cultivar Dowling
Results indicated that a single dominant gene named Rag1 controlled resistance in Dowling, and the monogenic dominant nature of resistance will enable breeders to rapidly convert existing susceptible cultivars to resistant cultivars using backcrossing procedures. Expand
Resistance to the Soybean Aphid in Soybean Germplasm
severe aphid infestation (Wang et al., 1996). An additional threat posed by the aphid is its ability to transmit certain With an efficient greenhouse screening method, the first resistance plantExpand
Comparative toxicity of several metal oxide nanoparticle aqueous suspensions to Zebrafish (Danio rerio) early developmental stage
This is the first study about the developmental toxicity of metal oxide nanoparticles, and the results demonstrate that nZnO is very toxic to zebrafish embryos and larvae, which highlights the need to evaluate the potential eco-toxicity of these manufactured nanomaterials (MNMs). Expand
Circular RNA is enriched and stable in exosomes: a promising biomarker for cancer diagnosis
Circular RNA is enriched and stable in exosomes: a promising biomarker for cancer diagnosis and a potential target for drug discovery. Expand
A Coastal Cline in Sodium Accumulation in Arabidopsis thaliana Is Driven by Natural Variation of the Sodium Transporter AtHKT1;1
This study used genome-wide association mapping, genetic complementation, and gene expression studies to identify cis-regulatory expression level polymorphisms at the AtHKT1;1 locus, encoding a known sodium (Na+) transporter, as being a major factor controlling natural variation in leaf Na+ accumulation capacity across the global A. thaliana population.

Soybean aphid resistance genes in the soybean cultivars Dowling and Jackson map to linkage group M
This study mapped the locations of Rag1 and the Jackson gene onto the soybean genetic map and segregated 1:2:1 in the F2:3 populations and mapped to soybean linkage group M between the markers Satt435 and Satt463. Expand
Multiple Rice MicroRNAs Are Involved in Immunity against the Blast Fungus Magnaporthe oryzae1[C][W][OPEN]
Data indicate that miRNAs are involved in rice immunity against M. oryzae and that overexpression of miR160a or miR398b can enhance rice resistance to the disease. Expand
Genome sequencing and comparison of two nonhuman primate animal models, the cynomolgus and Chinese rhesus macaques
High-quality draft genome sequences from two macaque species, the cynomolgus/crab-eating macaque and the Chinese rhesus macaque, are presented and several putatively dysfunctional genetic differences are identified, which may explain functional differences between them previously observed in clinical studies.

Sensitive and Broadly Reactive Reverse Transcription-PCR Assays To Detect Novel Paramyxoviruses
A set of reverse transcription-PCR assays for the detection and identification of known and novel paramyxoviruses in clinical specimens enhances the ability to look for novel viruses in outbreaks and diseases of unknown etiology. Expand
A rat RNA-Seq transcriptomic BodyMap across 11 organs and 4 developmental stages
A comprehensive rat transcriptomic BodyMap is created by performing RNA-Seq on 320 samples from 11 organs of both sexes of juvenile, adolescent, adult and aged Fischer 344 rats, finding that organ-enriched, differentially expressed genes reflect the known organ-specific biological activities. Expand
