Phospholipase A(2) (PLA(2)) catalyses the hydrolysis of phospholipids into lysophospholipids and free fatty acids. Physiological studies have indicated that PLA(2) is involved in stomatal movement. However, genetic evidence of a role of PLA(2) in guard cell signalling has not yet been reported. To identify PLA(2) gene(s) that is (are) involved in(More)
Auxin and abscisic acid (ABA) are major plant hormones that act together to modulate numerous aspects of plant growth and development, including seed germination, primary root elongation, and lateral root formation. In this study, we analyzed the loss-of-function mutants of two closely related ROP (Rho of plants) GTPases, ROP9 and ROP10, and found that(More)
Splenosis is defined as an autotransplantation of the splenic tissue after splenic rupture or splenectomy, and occurs most frequently in the peritoneal cavity. Splenosis is usually asymptomatic and is found incidentally. We report a case of combined intrathoracic and intraperitoneal splenosis in a 54-year-old male who worked as a miner for 10 years in his(More)
Shwachman–Diamond syndrome (SDS) is an autosomal recessive disorder (OMIM 260400), characterized by exocrine pancreatic insufficiency, skeletal abnormalities and bone marrow (BM) dysfunction, with a risk, as high as 30%, to develop myelodysplastic syndrome and/or acute myeloid leukaemia (MDS/AML). The SBDS gene (OMIM 607744) is localized on chromosome 7 at(More)
