Advanced backcross QTL analysis of a Lycopersicon esculentum x L. pennellii cross and identification of possible orthologs in the Solanaceae
In this study, the advanced backcross QTL (AB-QTL) mapping strategy was used to identify loci for yield, processing and fruit quality traits in a population derived from the interspecific cross Lycopersicon esculentum E6203 ...
Pentobarbital-mediated Regulation of Alternative Polyadenylation in Drosophila Glutathione S-Transferase D21 mRNAs
(American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biolog, 2004-02)
Two nearly identical, gstD21(L) and gstD21(S) mRNAs whose polyadenylation sites differ by 19 nucleotides, are transcribed from the intronless glutathione S-transferase D21 gene in Drosophila. Both mRNAs are intrinsically ...
Comparative fine mapping of fruit quality QTLs on chromosome 4 introgressions derived from two wild tomato species
(Kluwer Academic Publishers, 2004)
Despite their unsuitability for agricultural production, the wild relatives of crop species represent a largely untapped resource of novel QTLs potentially useful for crop plant improvement. In this regard, previous ...
Upregulation of multi drug resistance genes in doxorubicin resistant human acute myelogeneous leukemia cells and reversal of the resistance
(Taylor & Francis, 2007-12)
The major problem in the treatment of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients results from multidrug resistance to administered anticancer agents. Drug resistance proteins, MDR1 and MRP1, which work as drug efflux pumps, can ...
Determination of the effects of biomaterials on human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC)

Rates of myocardial infarction and coronary artery disease and risk factors in patients treated with radiation therapy for early-stage breast cancer
We read the interesting article by Jagsi et al on the increased rates of coronary artery disease in patients treated with radiation therapy for early-stage breast cancer.1 In their study, those authors concluded that the ...
Antifungal activity of biopolymers containing natamycin and rosemary extract against Aspergillus niger and Penicillium roquefortii
Antimicrobial agent-releasing films have been proposed as an effective way of inhibiting chiefly surface spoilage of food products. Antifungal activities of natamycin (NA), rosemary extract (RE) and NA + RE were tested ...
Identification of a novel system for boron transport: Atr1 is a main boron exporter in yeast
(American Society for Microbiology, 2009-07)
Boron is a micronutrient in plants and animals, but its specific roles in cellular processes are not known. To understand boron transport and functions, we screened a yeast genomic DNA library for genes that confer resistance ...
Biofilm formation by Staphylococcus epidermidis on nitrogen ion implanted CoCrMo alloy material
Staphylococcus epidermidis is the primary cause of medical device-related infections due to its adhesion and biofilm forming abilities on biomaterial surfaces. For this reason development of new materials and surfaces to ...
Structure of Halothiobacillus neapolitanus Carboxysomes by Cryo-electron Tomography
Carboxysomes are polyhedral bodies consisting of a proteinaceous shell filled with ribulose 1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (RuBisCO). They are found in the cytoplasm of all cyanobacteria and some chemoautotrophic ...
