The Colorado potato beetle (Leptinotarsa decemlineata [Say]) in the north Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region in China has evolved resistance to pyrethroids and carbamates. Mutations resulting in target site insensitivity, namely L1014F in LdVssc1 voltage-sensitive sodium channel and S291G in acetylcholine esterase, confer, at least partially, the resistance.(More)
Telomerase Cajal body protein 1 (TCAB1) is a telom-erase holoenzyme, which is markedly enriched in Cajal bodies (CBs) and facilitates the recruitment of telomerase to CBs in the S phase of the cell cycle. This recruitment is dependent on TCAB1 binding to a telomerase RNA component. The majority of cancer cells are able to grow indefinitely due to telomerase(More)
Adults of the yellow-spined bamboo locust, Ceracris kiangsu Tsai (Orthoptera: Oedipodidae), aggregate and gnaw at human urine-contaminated materials, a phenomenon termed puddling. Several urine-borne chemicals, including NaCl, are known to stimulate adult C. kiangsu to consume filter paper. Because in nature C. kiangsu adults may use cues to locate puddling(More)
Lung cancer remains a leading cause of cancer-related mortality and morbidity worldwide, of which non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) accounts for 80 %. RUVBL1 is a highly conserved eukaryotic AAA+ adenosine 5′-triphosphatase (ATPase) that has many functions highly relevant to cancer. We therefore attempted to determine the potential role of RUVBL1 in the(More)
