Plant growth and development are sensitive to light. Light-responsive DNA-binding transcription factors have been functionally identified. However, how transcription initiation complex integrates light signals from enhancer-bound transcription factors remains unknown. In this work, we characterized mutations within the Arabidopsis HAF2 gene encoding(More)
NAD holds a key position in metabolism and cellular regulatory events as a major redox carrier and a signalling molecule. NAD biosynthesis pathways have been reconstructed and compared in seven yeast species with completely sequenced genomes, including Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Kluyveromyces lactis, Candida glabrata, Debaryomyces hansenii, Candida albicans,(More)
Trihelix DNA-binding factors (or GT factors) bind to GT elements found in the promoters of many plant genes. Although the binding specificity and the transcriptional activity of some members (e.g. GT-1 and GT-2) have been studied, the regulatory function of this family of transcription factors remains largely unknown. In this work, we have characterised a(More)
To identify risk factors for HIV infection among men who have sex with men (MSM) and to provide a theoretical basis for prevention interventions. Between December 2011 and August 2012, a case-control study was conducted among MSM who underwent voluntary counselling and testing for HIV. Confirmed HIV-positive MSM were included in the case group, and(More)
The whole-genome duplication (WGD) may provide a basis for the emergence of the very characteristic life style of Saccharomyces cerevisiae-its fermentation-oriented physiology and its capacity of growing in anaerobiosis. Indeed, we found an over-representation of oxygen-responding genes in the ohnologs of S. cerevisiae. Many of these duplicated genes are(More)
This paper took four kinds of common soil and water conservation plants of the study area, Caragana microphylla, Salix psammophila, Artemisia sphaerocephala and Hippophae rhamnides at ages of 4 as the research object. Thirteen indicators, i.e., single shrub to reduce wind velocity ration, shelterbelt reducing wind velocity ration, community reducing wind(More)
Taking four plant species, Caragana korshinskii, Salix psammophila, Hippophae rhamnides and Artemisia sphaerocephala, which were 3-4 years old and in vigorous growth period, as test materials, the anti-fracture forces of lateral-root branches and adjacent upper straight roots were measured with the self-made fixture and the instrument of TY 8000.
