A Draft Sequence of the Rice Genome (Oryza sativa L. ssp. indica)
A draft sequence of the rice genome for the most widely cultivated subspecies in China, Oryza sativa L. ssp.indica, by whole-genome shotgun sequencing is produced, with a large proportion of rice genes with no recognizable homologs due to a gradient in the GC content of rice coding sequences.

The Codon 72 Polymorphism of p53 Regulates Interaction with NF-κB and Transactivation of Genes Involved in Immunity and Inflammation
The data indicate that the codon 72 polymorphism impacts p53's role in inflammation, and it is shown that P72 mice have a markedly enhanced response to inflammatory challenge compared to that of R72 mice. Expand
Hcp Family Proteins Secreted via the Type VI Secretion System Coordinately Regulate Escherichia coli K1 Interaction with Human Brain Microvascular Endothelial Cells
It is demonstrated that the T6SS is functional in E. coli K1, and two Hcp family proteins participate in different steps of E. Escherichia coli interaction with HBMEC in a coordinate manner, e.g., binding to and invasion of H BMEC, the cytokine and chemokine release followed by cytoskeleton rearrangement, and apoptosis in HBM EC.

This work reviews the recent advances in developing ILs as additives for lubrication with an attempt to correlate among the cationic and anionic structures, oil-solubility, and other relevant physicochemical properties, and lubricating behavior. Expand
Detection of Hg2+ based on the selective inhibition of peroxidase mimetic activity of BSA-Au clusters.
A novel method based on the inhibiting effect of Hg(2+) on BSA-Au clusters peroxidase-like activity was developed and this method was successfully applied for the determination of total mercury content in skin lightening products. Expand
H3K36 histone methyltransferase Setd2 is required for murine embryonic stem cell differentiation toward endoderm.
Results indicate that Setd2 controls the primitive endoderm differentiation of mESCs by regulating the Fgfr3-Erk signaling. Expand
Synergistic penetration of ethosomes and lipophilic prodrug on the transdermal delivery of acyclovir
This study indicated that the binary combination of the lipophilic prodrug ACV-C16 and the ethosomes synergistically enhanced ACV absorption into the skin. Expand
Pharmacokinetic variation of ofloxacin based on gender-related difference in the expression of multidrug resistance-associated protein (Abcc2/Mrp2) in rat kidney.
Results suggested that gender-related differences in pharmacokinetics of ofloxacin may be attributed to the differences in the expression of Mrp2 in kidney of male and female rats. Expand
A novel photochromic calcium-based metal-organic framework derived from a naphthalene diimide chromophore.
A novel 3D calcium-based metal-organic framework based on a naphthalene diimide chromophore has been synthesized which displays a unique doubly interpenetrated 7-connected net with total point symbolExpand
Voluntary alcohol drinking enhances proopiomelanocortin gene expression in nucleus accumbens shell and hypothalamus of Sardinian alcohol-preferring rats.
Higher POMC expression at basal levels in sP rats (genetically determined), along with increases after drinking (alcohol-induced) in the NAc shell and hypothalamus, suggests that the PomC systems play a role in high alcohol preference and consumption. Expand
