High-throughput techniques such as whole-exome sequencing (WES) show promise for the identification of candidate genes that underlie Mendelian diseases such as nephrotic syndrome (NS). These techniques have enabled the identification of a proportion of the approximately 54 genes associated with NS. However, the main pitfall of using WES in clinical and research practice is the identification of multiple variants, which hampers interpretation during downstream analysis. One useful strategy is to ...

Heterosis has been extensively applied for many traits during maize breeding, but there has been relatively little attention paid to the heterosis for kernel size. In this study, we evaluated a population of 301 recombinant inbred lines derived from a cross between 08-641 and YE478, as well as 298 hybrids from an immortalized F2 (IF2) population to detect quantitative trait loci (QTLs) for six kernel-related traits and the mid-parent heterosis (MPH) for these traits. A total of 100 QTLs, six pai...

The oriental gall wasp Dryocosmus kuriphilus represents a limiting pest for the European Chestnut (Castanea sativa, Fagaceae) as it creates severe yield losses. The European Chestnut is a deciduous tree, having major social, economic and environmental importance in Southern Europe, covering an area of 2.53 million hectares, including 75,000 ha devoted to fruit production. Cultivars show different susceptibility and very few are resistant to gall wasp. To deeply investigate the plant response and...

DNA methylation pattern is found to be established by the combined actions of DNA methylation and demethylation. Compared to the DNA methylation pathway, DNA demethylation pathway, however, remains largely unknown. To better understand the DNA demethylation pathway, we performed genetic screening for Arabidopsis mutants with increased genomic DNA methylation levels through a 2 × 35S:LUC (LUC, luciferase) reporter system. A mutant with reduced LUC luminescence was identified by such a system, the...

Regulatory factors function by modulating a variety of cascade mechanisms in cells. RBM4 is a multifunctional RNA-binding protein in post-transcriptional gene regulation. Cytoplasmic RBM4 interacts with Ago2 to regulate inflammatory responses by affecting mRNA decay and cap-dependent translation. However, it is unclear whether RBM4 functions in inflammation regulation by its splicing factor role. Here, the cell biology, gene expression profile and alternative splicing pattern of HeLa cells with ...

The use of genomic selection (GS) has stimulated a new way to utilize molecular markers in breeding for complex traits in the absence of phenotypic data. GS can potentially decrease breeding cycle by selecting the progeny in the early stages. The objective of this study was to experimentally evaluate the potential value of genomic selection in Upland cotton breeding. Six fiber quality traits were obtained in 3 years of replicated field trials in Starkville, MS. Genotyping-by-sequencing-based gen...

Many studies show that lifespans of various model organisms can be extended by limiting the quantities of nutrients that are necessary for proliferation. In Schizosaccharomyces pombe, the Ecl1 family genes have been associated with lifespan control and are necessary for cell responses to nutrient depletion, but their functions and mechanisms of action remain uncharacterized. Herein, we show that leucine depletion extends the chronological lifespan (CLS) of leucine-auxotrophic cells. Furthermore,...

Cotton is the most important natural fiber used in textiles. Breeding for “three-lines”, i.e., cytoplasmic male sterility (CMS)-based sterile (A), maintainer (B), and restorer (R) line, is a promising approach to harness hybrid vigor in cotton. Pentatricopeptide repeat (PPR) protein-encoding genes play an important role in plant growth and development including restoration of CMS plants to male fertility. However, PPRs, especially those contributing to CMS and fiber development, remain largely u...
