The OsSPL16-GW7 regulatory module determines grain shape and simultaneously improves rice yield and grain quality
Manipulation of the OsSPL16-GW7 module represents a new strategy to simultaneously improve rice yield and grain quality and is associated with higher grain quality without the yield penalty imposed by the Basmati gw8 allele. Expand
Molecular and compound-specific isotopic characterization of monocarboxylic acids in carbonaceous meteorites
Abstract Low molecular weight monocarboxylic acids are the most abundant water soluble organic compounds in the Murchison and many other CM type carbonaceous chondrites. In this study, we examinedExpand
Three New Compounds from Aspergillus terreus PT06-2 Grown in a High Salt Medium
To investigate the structurally novel and bioactive natural compounds from marine-derived microorganisms under high salinity, the fungus Aspergillus terreus PT06-2 was isolated from the sediment ofExpand
A kinetic characterization of the glycosyltransferase activity of Eschericia coli PBP1b and development of a continuous fluorescence assay.
Data suggest a mechanism for PBP1b where the glycosyltransfer reaction is catalyzed by the concerted effect of an active site base to deprotonate the Glycosyl acceptor and a divalent metal to assist departure of the leaving group of the gly cosyl donor. Expand
Anti-influenza virus polyketides from the acid-tolerant fungus Penicillium purpurogenum JS03-21.
Fractionation of the ethyl acetate extract of an acid-tolerant fungus resulted in the isolation of six new compounds, purpurquinones A-C, purpuresters A and B, and 2,6,7-trihydroxy-3-methylnaphthalene-1,4-dione, which exhibited significant antiviral activity against H1N1. Expand
A kinetic model for thermally induced hydrogen and carbon isotope fractionation of individual n-alkanes in crude oil
Abstract A quantitative kinetic model has been proposed to simulate the large D and 13 C isotope enrichments observed in individual n -alkanes (C 13 –C 21 ) during artificial thermal maturation of aExpand
Two high-resolution crystal structures of the recombinant N-lobe of human transferrin reveal a structural change implicated in iron release.
The N-lobe of human serum transferrin (hTF/2N) has been expressed in baby hamster kidney cells and crystallized in both orthorhombic and tetragonal space groups and represents the highest-resolution transferrin structures determined to date. Expand
Novel cyclic hexapeptides from marine-derived fungus, Aspergillus sclerotiorum PT06-1.
Two novel cyclic hexapeptides containing both anthranilic acid and dehydroamino acid units were isolated from the marine-derived halotolerant Aspergillus sclerotiorum PT06-1 in a nutrient-limited hypersaline medium and showed moderate antifungal activity. Expand
DNA methylation downregulated mir-10b acts as a tumor suppressor in gastric cancer
It is shown that miR-10b was significantly downregulated in GC cell lines and tissues and is partially silenced by DNA hypermethylation in GC, and it is demonstrated that T-cell lymphoma invasion and metastasis was a target of miR -10b. Expand
Α-pyrones and diketopiperazine derivatives from the marine-derived actinomycete Nocardiopsis dassonvillei HR10-5.
Three new α-pyrones, nocapyrones E-G (1-3), and three new diketopiperazine derivatives, nocazines A-C (4-6), together with a new oxazoline compound, nocazoline A (7), were isolated from theExpand
