Pre-harvest sprouting (PHS) of wheat reduces the quality and economic value of grain, and increasing PHS tolerance is one of the most important traits in wheat breeding. Two new Vp-1B alleles related to PHS tolerance were identified on the 3BL chromosome of bread wheat and were designated Vp-1Bb and Vp-1Bc. Sequence analysis showed that Vp-1Bb has a 193 bp(More)
Cotton fibres are unicellular seed trichomes. Our previous study suggested that the cotton R2R3 MYB transcript factor GaMYB2 is a functional homologue of the Arabidopsis trichome regulator GLABRA1 (GL1). Here, the GaMYB2 promoter activity is reported in cotton (Gossypium hirsutum), tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum), and Arabidopsis plants. A 2062 bp promoter of(More)
Single nucleotide polymorphisms in type A gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA(A)) receptor beta2 subunit gene (GABRB2) were found to be associated with schizophrenia in Chinese, German, Japanese and Portuguese. To explore potential functional consequences of these DNA sequence polymorphisms, this study examined the expression and electrophysiological properties(More)
Epidemiological evidence points to an increased risk of breast cancer in ataxia telangiectasia (AT) heterozygote women. Previous attempts to screen early onset or familial breast cancer patients failed to confirm an association. The issue of AT and late onset sporadic breast cancer remained unresolved. We screened 47 women who developed later onset,(More)
