Genome diversity of tuber-bearing Solanum uncovers complex evolutionary history and targets of domestication in the cultivated potato
(Natl Acad Sciences, 2017-11-14)
Cultivated potatoes (Solanum tuberosum L.), domesticated from wild Solanum species native to the Andes of southern Peru, possess a diverse gene pool representing more than 100 tuber-bearing relatives (Solanum section ...
Herbicide injury induces DNA methylome alterations in Arabidopsis
(Peerj Inc, 2017-07-20)
The emergence of herbicide-resistant weeds is a major threat facing modern agriculture. Over 470 weedy-plant populations have developed resistance to herbicides. Traditional evolutionary mechanisms are not always sufficient ...
Resist diabetes: A randomized clinical trial for resistance training maintenance in adults with prediabetes
Objective To determine whether a social cognitive theory (SCT)-based intervention improves resistance training (RT) maintenance and strength, and reduces prediabetes prevalence. Research design and methods Sedentary, ...
Molecular Analysis of BRCA1 in Human Breast Cancer Cells Under Oxidative Stress
(Nature Publishing Group, 2017-03-06)
The precise manner in which physical changes to the breast cancer susceptibility protein (BRCA1) affect its role in DNA repair events remain unclear. Indeed, cancer cells harboring mutations in BRCA1 suffer from genomic ...

The type IV pilus assembly ATPase PilB functions as a signaling protein to regulate exopolysaccharide production in Myxococcus xanthus
(Nature Publishing Group, 2017-08-04)
Myxococcus xanthus possesses a form of surface motility powered by the retraction of the type IV pilus (T4P). Additionally, exopolysaccharide (EPS), the major constituent of bacterial biofilms, is required for this ...
