Y., Regulation of bolting and identification of the α-tubulin gene family in Brassica rapa L. ssp pekinensis, vol. 15, p. -, 2016.

Microtubules are important components of eukaryotic cells, and they play vital roles in cell morphogenesis, carrying of signaling molecules, transport of materials, and establishing the cell polarity. During bolting of biennial plants, cell division and elongation are involved, and cell elongation inevitably involves the microtubules arrangement and expression of related genes. So we deduce that it is of great significance to figure out the mechanism of bolting and flowering in which TUA genes are involved.

Prognostic value of miR-141 downregulation in gastric cancer

Y. B. Lu, Hu, J. J., Sun, W. J., Duan, X. H., and Chen, X., Prognostic value of miR-141 downregulation in gastric cancer, vol. 14, pp. 17305-17311, 2015.

Previous research has shown that microRNA-141 (miR-141) expression levels are associated with survival in several types of cancer. In the present study, we investigated the clinical significance and prognostic value of miR-141 in gastric cancer. Paired tissue specimens (tumor and adjacent normal mucosa) from 95 patients with gastric cancer were obtained at the Department of General Surgery, Xiangya Hospital, Central South University from March 2009 to February 2014.

Molecular cloning and expression analysis of a pearl oyster (Pinctada martensii) heat shock protein 90 (HSP90)

H. Y. Liang, Wang, Z. X., Lei, Q. N., Huang, R. L., Deng, Y. W., Wang, Q. H., Jiao, Y., and Du, X. D., Molecular cloning and expression analysis of a pearl oyster (Pinctada martensii) heat shock protein 90 (HSP90), vol. 14, pp. 18778-18791, 2015.

Heat shock protein 90 (HSP90) is an important molecular chaperone required for proper folding of cellular proteins, and thus, it plays an essential role in protecting cells from damage during stress. In this study, an HSP90 cDNA designated PmHSP90 was cloned from the mantle tissue of the pearl oyster Pinctada martensii using reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) coupled with the rapid amplification of cDNA ends (RACE) approach.
