    BIOCELL, Vol.47, No.11, pp. 2435-2443, 2023, DOI:10.32604/biocell.2023.043126

    Abstract Introduction: Verruca vulgaris is one of the most common low-risk HPV infections and is characterized by excessive proliferation of keratinocytes. Currently, very little genetic information is available regarding verruca vulgaris in the Chinese population. This study aimed to obtain comprehensive transcript information of verruca vulgaris by RNA sequencing. Methods: High-throughput sequencing was performed on three fresh verruca vulgaris samples and adjacent normal skin on the Illumina sequencing platform. The transcriptomes were analyzed using bioinformatics and the differentially expressed genes (DEGs) were verified by immunohistochemistry. Verruca vulgaris exhibited a unique molecular signature. Results: In total, 1,643 DEGs were identified in verruca… More >

    Seung Hee Eom, Tae Kyung Hyun*

    Phyton-International Journal of Experimental Botany, Vol.92, No.11, pp. 3077-3090, 2023, DOI:10.32604/phyton.2023.044032

    Abstract Heat and drought are prominent abiotic stressors that limit crop productivity and yield, particularly concerning climate change; therefore, understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying plant stress responses is crucial for stress-tolerant crop production. This study conducted a transcriptomic analysis to elucidate how garlic (Allium sativum L.) responds to drought and heat stress conditions. Transcriptome libraries were generated to identify differentially expressed genes (DEGs) induced by drought and heat stresses. Functional classification and clustering analysis of DEGs revealed stress-specific gene expression patterns. Notably, cell wall-related genes were implicated in the drought response, whereas heat stress was associated with heat stress transcription factors… More >

    Abstract Gossypium hirsutum L. is an important cash crop native to the subtropics and is widely cultivated around the world. Low temperature is an important stress that seriously affects seed germination and emergence during planting. In this study, transcriptomic profiles of low-temperature- and normal-temperature-germinated seeds of Xinluzao 25, a variety with low-temperature tolerance and high germination rates, were analyzed and compared. The following results were obtained. (1) A total of 81.06 Gb of clean data were obtained after transcriptome sequencing and assembly, and 76,931 non-redundant Unigene sequences were obtained after data consolidation and concatenation; of these, 69,883 Unigene sequences were annotated.… More >

    Abstract During the life cycle of a plant, seed germination is crucial. Upon ingestion of water, the dry seeds resumed energy metabolism and cellular repair. To dissect the complex mechanisms at the very beginning of seed germination, two approaches including transcriptome and small RNA sequencing were conducted during the water imbibition process of mung bean seeds compared with dry seed. The transcriptome sequencing analysis identified 10,108 differentially expressed genes (DEGs) between dry and imbibed mung bean seeds. KEGG enrichment analyses demonstrated numerous DEGs involved in hormone signaling pathways, carbohydrate, and energy metabolism. Out of the total DEGs, 129 genes were investigated… More >

    Transcriptome analysis reveals potential genes associated with plant height in rice


    BIOCELL, Vol.47, No.2, pp. 409-421, 2023, DOI:10.32604/biocell.2023.023543

    Abstract Plant height (PH) is a complex trait regulated by the environment and multiple genes. PH directly affects crop yield, harvest index, and lodging resistance. From plant dwarf mutants, many genes related to PH have been identified and described. Nonetheless, the molecular mechanism of height regulation in high-culm rice mutants has not been well studied. By using transcriptome and weighted gene co-expression network analysis (WGCNA), we identified the differentially expressed genes (DEGs) between high-culm rice mutants (MUT) and wild-type (WT) and explored the key pathways and potential candidate genes involved in PH regulation. Transcriptome analysis identified a total of 2,184 DEGs,… More >

    Phyton-International Journal of Experimental Botany, Vol.92, No.2, pp. 591-609, 2023, DOI:10.32604/phyton.2022.023481

    Abstract In this study, wild eggplant germplasm No. M239, which is highly susceptible to Verticillium wilt, was used as the experimental material. The physiological and biochemical indices (SOD, PAL, MDA and soluble protein) of M239 roots were measured at different times (0, 12, 24, 36, 48, 60 and 72 h) post inoculation with Verticillium dahliae, and the key time points for the M239 response to Verticillium wilt infection were screened. Then, RNA-Seq technology was used to screen the differentially expressed genes (DEGs) in M239 roots at 0, 12 and 48 h post-inoculation (hpi). The transcriptional results of M239 were also compared… More >

    Molecular & Cellular Biomechanics, Vol.16, Suppl.2, pp. 100-100, 2019, DOI:10.32604/mcb.2019.07112

    Abstract Long-term space flight will be a major mission for International Space Administration. However, it has been shown that exposure to space flight result in immune system dysfunction. Therefore, understand the mechanism of immune response under microgravity condition is a key topic. Macrophage is one of the most important immune cells in human body, playing key roles in both innate and adaptive immune systems. In this research, we used mouse macrophages (RAW264.7) and collected samples at short-term (8 hour), mediate-term (24 hour) and long-term (48 hour) microgravity treatment. We measured cell proliferation, phagocytosis function and used next-generation sequencing (NGS) to obtain… More >
