Interleukin 7/Interleukin 7 receptor (IL-7/IL-7R) signaling induces the upregulation of cyclin D1 to promote cell proliferation in lung cancer, but its role in preventing the apoptosis of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cell lines remains unknown. To study the role of IL-7 in lung cancer cell apoptosis, normal HBE cells as well as A549 and H1299 NSCLC(More)
Soybean is a difficult crop to manipulate through Agrobacterium tumefaciens-mediated genetic transformation. Plant–bacterium interaction plays an important role in the transformation process. Being rich with isoflavones, soybean may have an adverse effect on the A. tumefaciens-mediated genetic transformation. To investigate whether high content of(More)
Previous studies have shown that TaNHX2 transgenic alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.) accumulated more K+ and less Na+ in leaves than did the wild-type plants. To investigate whether the increased K+ accumulation in transgenic plants is attributed to TaNHX2 gene expression and whether the compartmentalization of Na+ into vacuoles or the intracellular(More)
Maize cultivar zhengdan958 was selected as materials. The sub-cellular distribution of soluble calcium at different phases was shown by the potassium-pyroantinonate-precipitation method and transmission electron microscopy. The results showed that the deposits of calcium antimonate as the indicator for Ca(2+) localization were mainly concentrated within the(More)
Antagonists and sonication treatment relieved the structural barriers of Agrobacterium entering into cells; hindered signal perception and transmission; alleviated defense responses and increased cell susceptibility to Agrobacterium infection. Soybean gene expression analysis was performed to elucidate the general response of soybean plant to Agrobacterium(More)
