(Public Library of Science, 2014-11-04)
Ovine rinderpest or goat plague is an economically important and contagious viral disease of sheep and goats, caused by the Peste des petits ruminants virus (PPRV). Differences in susceptibility to goat plague among different ...
Identification, characterization, and gene expression analysis of nucleotide binding site (NB)-type resistance gene homologues in switchgrass
BACKGROUND: Switchgrass (Panicum virgatum L.) is a warm-season perennial grass that can be used as a second generation bioenergy crop. However, foliar fungal pathogens, like switchgrass rust, have the potential to significantly ...
Recursive Motif Analyses Identify Brain Epigenetic Transcription Regulatory Modules
DNA methylation is an epigenetic modification modulating the structure of DNA molecule and the interactions with its binding proteins. Accumulating large-scale methylation data motivates the development of analytic tools ...
Analyzing the Transcriptomes of Two Quorum-Sensing Controlled Transcription Factors, RcsA and LrhA, Important for Pantoea stewartii Virulence
(Public Library of Science, 2015-12-23)
The Gram-negative proteobacterium Pantoea stewartii subsp. stewartii causes wilt disease in corn plants. Wilting is primarily due to bacterial exopolysaccharide (EPS) production that blocks water transport in the xylem ...
OpaR Controls a Network of Downstream Transcription Factors in Vibrio parahaemolyticus BB22OP
(Public Library of Science, 2015-04-22)
Vibrio parahaemolyticus is an emerging world-wide human pathogen that is associated with food-borne gastroenteritis when raw or undercooked seafood is consumed. Expression of virulence factors in this organism is modulated ...
