A phylogenetic tree was constructed by sequencing rbcL genes of 33 species representing 19 genera of Ranunculaceae, and three related species, Mahonia bealei, Mahonia fortunei and Nandina domestica. The results showed that the rbcL sequences of these Ranunculaceae range from 1,346 bp to 1,393 bp. The results based on the phylogenetic tree indicated that(More)
The pigment gland is an important character of the Gossypium plant. With the aim of identifying genes involved in pigment gland morphogenesis in cotton, gene expression during pigment gland morphogenesis in Chuan 2802, which is glanded both in seed and plant, and a glandless line N5 was profiled using Affymetrix Cotton microarray. The results showed that(More)
Gossypol, a secondary metabolite stored in the glands of cotton, protecting cottonseed from consumption of human and monogastric animal. This ability is unique to the tribe Gossypieae. Although the relationship between gossypol and pigment gland has been studied for a long time, the development mechanism of pigment gland has not been investigated at(More)
Abstract: In this paper, the problem of delay-dependent stabilization for singular systems with multiple internal and external incommensurate constant point delays is investigated. The condition when a singular system subject to point delays is regular independent of time delays is given and it can be easily test with numerical or algebraic methods. Based(More)
The p53 gene is activated in response to several malignancy-associated stress signals by transactivation of downstream genes and by transcription-independent mechanisms. In order to identify new p53 downstream genes, we established a new system of p53 gene inducible expression, U251-pTet-p53 cell line, with the Tet-On Gene Expression System, in which(More)
Gossypol is an important resistant substance of Gossypium, and its storage organ is pigment gland. Although, the relationship between gossypol and pigment gland has been studied for a long time, the development mechanism of pigment gland has not been revealed up to now in molecular perspective. On the basis of differentially expressed cDNAs fragments at the(More)
The delay-dependent decentralized stabilization problem of multi-channel singular time-delay time-invariant systems subject to multiple internal and external incommensurate constant point delays is discussed based on the descriptor integral-inequality approach. The descriptor integral-inequality Lemma is firstly established. Based on the new Lemma and the(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the zymogram of peroxidase (PER) and phosphoglucose isomerase (PGI) of three species of Sarcocystis. METHODS The collected parasites were homogenized and fragmented by ultrasonication. After centrifugation, the supernatants were analyzed by isoelectric focusing electrophoresis. RESULTS The isolates of S. cruzi from infected water(More)
We have identified PAP1 gene, a novel member of the immunoglobulin superfamily (IGSF) from U251-pTet-p53 cell line, which carried a wild-type p53 transgene. The gene has been localised to chromosome 16p12-13. Alignment of the predicted protein sequence for Human, Pan troglodytes, Canis, Mus musculus and Gallus gallus revealed it was highly conserved. Its(More)
A cDNA encoding a novel cysteine proteinase inhibitor (CPI) was isolated from a gland mutant Xiangmian-18 of upland cotton during the pigments gland forming stage. The cDNA comprises 378 bp and encodes 125 amino acid residues with molecular mass of 13.8 kDa. It contains the conserved motif of cysteine protease inhibitors and belongs to the cystatin(More)
