Small auxin-up RNAs (SAURs) are the early auxin-responsive genes represented by a large multigene family in plants. Here, we identified 79 SAUR gene family members from maize (Zea mays subsp. mays) by a reiterative database search and manual annotation. Phylogenetic analysis indicated that the SAUR proteins from Arabidopsis, rice, sorghum, and maize had(More)
Sm proteins are a group of ubiquitous ring-shaped oligomers that function in multiple aspects of RNA metabolism. However, until this study, no comprehensive study incorporating phylogeny, chromosomal location, gene organization, adaptive evolution, expression profiling and functional networks has been reported for rice and maize. In this study, twenty-five(More)
The adenosine 5'-triphosphate (ATP) competitive cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor O(6)-cyclohexylmethylguanine (NU2058, 1) has been employed as the lead in a structure-based drug discovery program resulting in the discovery of the potent CDK1 and -2 inhibitor NU6102 (3, IC(50) = 9.5 nM and 5.4 nM vs CDK1/cyclinB and CDK2/cyclinA3, respectively). The SAR for(More)
Deoxyribonucleic acid binding with one finger (Dof) family, a kind of plant-specific transcription factor family, is involved in a variety of biological processes including signal transduction, morphogenesis, and environmental stress responses. In the present study, 46 putative Dof genes were identified from maize (Zea mays subsp. mays). The predicted ZmDof(More)
Intrusion detection and prevention systems (IDS/IPS) are a critical component of computer network security. This paper presents the results of an experiment comparing two open source IDS - Snort IDS and Bro IDS on a multi-purpose and low-cost computer called Raspberry Pi 2 (Model B), with a specific objective of determining their performance, efficiency and(More)
The anatomical characteristics and physical–mechanical properties of Neosinocalamus affinis culms from three locations in China were investigated. The fiber percentage, length, wall thickness, basic density, and mechanical properties all increased with culm height, while the fiber lumen diameter and volume shrinkage showed an inverse trend. The site had(More)
BACKGROUND Little research has been conducted on the prevalence of diabetes mellitus in underdeveloped areas in China, especially stratified into obesity and non-obese diabetes. The aim of the present study was to investigate the prevalence and associated factors of non-obese diabetes in an underdeveloped area in South China, Guangxi. METHODS Data derived(More)
The carrier technology provides an intelligent approach for drug delivery by entrapping the drug into a carrier, such as nanoparticles, microspheres, hydrogels, and so on, which can increase the bioavailability of drug, enhance targeting, reduce toxicity and side effects of drug. The polysaccharides, e.g., chitosan and its derivatives, as carriers for(More)
The structure and dynamic behavior of mobile components play a significant role in determining properties of solid materials. Herein, we propose a novel real-time spectrum-editing method to extract signals of mobile components in organic solids on the basis of the polarization inversion spin exchange at magic angle (PISEMA) pulse sequence and the difference(More)
