A gene regulatory network underlying the formation of pre-placodal ectoderm in xenopus laevis
(Springer Nature, 2018-07-16)
Background: The neural plate border ectoderm gives rise to key developmental structures during embryogenesis, including the neural crest and the preplacodal ectoderm. Many sensory organs and ganglia of vertebrates develop ...
Role of micro-rnas in breast cancer surgery
Background: The management of breast cancer has changed dramatically in the molecular era. Micro-RNAs can contribute to multiple facets of cancer surgery. Methods: This narrative review, based on years of research on the ...
Dual ire1 rnase functions dictate glioblastoma development
Proteostasis imbalance is emerging as a major hallmark of cancer, driving tumor aggressiveness. Evidence suggests that the endoplasmic reticulum (ER), a major site for protein folding and quality control, plays a critical ...
Absence of curli in soil-persistent escherichia coli is mediated by a c-di-gmp signaling defect and suggests evidence of biofilm-independent niche specialization
(Frontiers Media SA, 2018-06-22)
Escherichia coli is commonly viewed as a gastrointestinal commensal or pathogen although an increasing body of evidence suggests that it can persist in non-host environments as well. Curli are a major component of biofilm ...
Hybridity has a greater effect than paternal genome dosage on heterosis in sugar beet (beta vulgaris)
(Springer Nature, 2018-06-15)
Background: The phenomenon of heterosis is critical to plant breeding and agricultural productivity. Heterosis occurs when F1 hybrid offspring display quantitative improvements in traits to levels that do not occur in the ...
