In recent years, Mixed Integer Linear Programming (MILP) has been successfully applied in searching for differential characteristics and linear approximations in block ciphers and has produced the significant results for some ciphers such as SIMON (a family of lightweight and hardware-optimized block ciphers designed by NSA) etc. However, in the literature,… (More)
Simulated microgravity (SM) has been implicated in affecting diverse cellular pathways. Although there is emerging evidence that SM can alter cellular functions, its effect in cancer metastasis has not been addressed. Here, we demonstrate that SM inhibits migration, gelatinolytic activity, and cell proliferation of an A549 human lung adenocarcinoma cell… (More)
Populus euphratica Oliv., a species of the model woody plant genus Populus, is well known for its tolerance to salinity stress, the underlying mechanism of which is a research hotspot. Transient expression of fluorescent fusion proteins is commonly used for rapid assessment of gene functions and interactions, and thus would be useful to study the genes… (More)
The space environment is a very special condition under which many organisms change many features. Escherichia coli is employed widely as a prokaryotic model organism in the fields of biotechnology and microbiology. Here, we present the draft ge-nome sequence of E. coli strain LCT-EC59 exposed to space conditions. T he space environment, with its… (More)
The Hippo pathway plays a major role in development and organ size control, and its dysregulation contributes to tumorigenesis. WWTR1 is a transcription coactivator acting downstream of the Hippo pathway. Recently, WWTR1 has been reported to be overexpressed in several human cancers including lung cancer. However, the molecular mechanism of WWTR1 regulating… (More)
The plant hormone auxin is a central regulator of plant growth. TRANSPORT INHIBITOR RESPONSE 1/AUXIN SIGNALING F-BOX (TIR1/AFB) is a component of the E3 ubiquitin ligase complex SCF(TIR1/AFB) and acts as an auxin co-receptor for nuclear auxin signaling. The SCF(TIR1/AFB)-proteasome machinery plays a central regulatory role in development-related gene… (More)
In order to explore the effect of space environments on Bacillus cereus, we determined the draft genome sequence of a B. cereus strain, LCT-BC235, which was isolated after space flight.
Escherichia coli is a ubiquitous opportunistic pathogen that colonizes the lower intestines of humans and causes several diseases, such as septicemia, pneumonia, and urinary tract infections. Here, we present the draft genome sequence of E. coli strain LCT-EC52, which originated from E. coli strain CGMCC 1.2385 and acquired changes in antibiotic resistance… (More)
