Application of Astragalus Polysaccharide in Chicken Breeding

Application of Astragalus Polysaccharide in Chicken Breeding In traditional Chinese medicine, Astragalus is considered one of the most commonly used in clinical practice. Astragalus can regulate the immune function of the body in both directions, promote the production of interferon by immune cells, delay cell senescence, resist bacteria and fatigu…

Research on market prospect of CaHMB in China based on Japanese market

Through the current situation of the Japanese consumer market of CaHMB (β-hydroxy-β-methylbutyrate), we can see the next China’s market prospects of CaHMB. In fact, the big health industry has never lacked opportunities. The key is to grasp the trend of market development and consumer demand. CaHMB is a new food ingredient that is rapidly emerging…

A genome-wide survey reveals abundant rice blast R genes in resistant cultivars

Plant resistance genes (R genes) harbor tremendous allelic diversity, constituting a robust immune system effective against microbial pathogens. Nevertheless, few functional R genes have been identified for even the best-studied pathosystems. Does this limited repertoire reflect specificity, with most R genes having been defeated by former pests, o…

Transcription factor WRKY46 modulates the development of Arabidopsis lateral roots in osmotic/salt s…

The development of lateral roots (LR) is known to be severely inhibited by salt or osmotic stress. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying LR development in osmotic/salt stress conditions are poorly understood. Here we show that the gene encoding the WRKY transcription factor WRKY46 (WRKY46) is expressed throughout lateral root primordia (LRP)…

A systems biology approach identifies new regulators of poplar root development under low nitrogen

In Populus, low nitrogen (LN) elicits rapid and vigorous lateral root (LR) proliferation, which is closely mirrored by corresponding transcriptomic changes. Using transcriptomic data, we built a genetic network encompassing a large proportion of the differentially regulated transcriptome. The network is organized in a hierarchical fashion, centered…

The wheat transcription factor TaGAMyb recruits histone acetyltransferase and activates the expressi…

Glutenin proteins in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) flour confer unique viscoelastic properties to dough products and, therefore, the concentration and composition of the glutenin proteins determine its end-use value. However, the mechanisms governing the glutenin gene expression remain elusive. In this study, we report that wheat TaGAMyb activates t…

Glutathione plays an essential role in nitric oxide-mediated iron-deficiency signaling and iron-defi…

Iron (Fe) deficiency is a common agricultural problem that affects both the productivity and nutritional quality of plants. Thus, identifying the key factors involved in the tolerance of Fe deficiency is important. In the present study, the zir1 mutant, which is glutathione deficient, was found to be more sensitive to Fe deficiency than the wild ty…

Jasmonic acid promotes degreening via MYC2/3/4- and ANAC019/055/072-mediated regulation of major chl…

Degreening caused by rapid chlorophyll (Chl) degradation is a characteristic event during green organ senescence or maturation. Pheophorbide a oxygenase gene (PAO) encodes a key enzyme of Chl degradation, yet its transcriptional regulation remains largely unknown. Using yeast one-hybrid screening, coupled with in vitro and in vivo assays, we reveal…
