The antennal sensilla of the pine weevil (Pissodes nitidus Roel.) were observed with scanning electron microscopy and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The weevil antenna consists of a long scape, a pedicel, and a flagellum with 10 segments; the last four flagellum segments are fused, forming the antennal club, which is densely covered by various(More)
AIMS In this study, we investigated the effects of Bax-inhibiting peptide (Bip)-V5, an anti-apoptosis membrane-permeable peptide, on the 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA) induced Parkinson's disease (PD) model rats. MATERIALS AND METHODS Rats were randomly divided into five groups: Control, 6-OHDA only, Vehicle+6-OHDA, zVAD+6-OHDA, and V5+6-OHDA, that rats were(More)
Defence proteins are a kind of chemical defence compounds. They play a key role in plant restraining biotic and abiotic harm. To illuminate activities of some defense proteins associated with age or plant family of larch, the larch needles were collected from two different families of Korean larch, Larix olgensis and a hybrid larch, L. kaempferi × L.(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a group endogenous small non-coding RNAs that inhibit protein translation through binding to specific target mRNAs. Recent studies have demonstrated that miRNAs are implicated in the development of cancer. However, the role of miR-144 in uveal melanoma metastasis remains largely unknown. MiR-144 was downregulated in both uveal(More)
