Genome wide association study of the whiteness and colour related traits of flour and dough sheets in common wheat.

Sci Rep 2021 Apr 22;11(1):8790. Epub 2021 Apr 22.

State Key Laboratory of Crop Biology, Key Laboratory of Crop Biology of Shandong Province, Group of Wheat Quality and Molecular Breeding, College of Agronomy, Shandong Agricultural University, Tai'an, 271000, Shandong, People's Republic of China.

Flour whiteness and colour are important factors that influence the quality of wheat flour and end-use products. In this study, a genome wide association study focusing on flour and dough sheet colour using a high density genetic map constructed with 90K single nucleotide polymorphism arrays in a panel of 205 elite winter wheat accessions was conducted in two different locations in 2 years. Eighty-six significant marker-trait associations (MTAs) were detected for flour whiteness and the brightness index (L* value), the redness index (a* value), and the yellowness index (b* value) of flour and dough sheets (P < 10) on homologous group 1, 2, 5 and 7, and chromosomes 3A, 3B, 4A, 6A and 6B.

The Impacts of Sortase A and the 4'-Phosphopantetheinyl Transferase Homolog Sfp on Extracellular Membrane Vesicle Biogenesis.

Front Microbiol 2020 26;11:570219. Epub 2020 Oct 26.

Department of Oral Biology, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL, United States.

Extracellular membrane vesicles (EMVs) are produced by many Gram-positive organisms, but information regarding vesiculogenesis is incomplete. We used single gene deletions to evaluate the impacts on EMV biogenesis of Sortase A (SrtA), which affects EMV composition, and Sfp, a 4'-phosphopantetheinyl transferase that affects EMV stability. Δ EMVs were notably larger than Δ and wild-type (WT) EMVs. Read More

A Carbon Emission Measurement Method for Individual Travel Based on Transportation Big Data: The Case of Nanjing Metro.

Int J Environ Res Public Health 2020 08 17;17(16). Epub 2020 Aug 17.

College of Automobile and Traffic Engineering, Nanjing Forestry University, Longpan Road 159#, Nanjing 210037, China.

With the strengthening of environmental awareness, the government pays much more attention to environmental protection and thus implements carbon trading schemes to promote the reduction of global carbon dioxide emissions. The carbon Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) is an incentive mechanism for citizens to value their energy conservation and carbon reduction. Individual travel needs to rely on various means of transportation, resulting in energy consumption. Read More

Community-Aware Photo Quality Evaluation by Deeply Encoding Human Perception.

IEEE Trans Cybern 2020 Jul 31;PP. Epub 2020 Jul 31.

Computational photo quality evaluation is a useful technique in many tasks of computer vision and graphics, for example, photo retaregeting, 3-D rendering, and fashion recommendation. The conventional photo quality models are designed by characterizing the pictures from all communities (e.g. Read More

Pyrosequencing analysis of bacterial communities in biofilms from different pipe materials in a city drinking water distribution system of East China.

Appl Microbiol Biotechnol 2015 Dec 27;99(24):10713-24. Epub 2015 Aug 27.

Department of Environmental Engineering, Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, 310058, China.

Biofilms in drinking water distribution systems (DWDSs) could cause several types of problems, such as the deterioration of water quality, corrosion of pipe walls, and potential proliferation of opportunistic pathogens. In this study, ten biofilm samples from different pipe materials, including ductile cast iron pipe (DCIP), gray cast iron pipe (GCIP), galvanized steel pipe (GSP), stainless steel clad pipe (SSCP), and polyvinyl chloride (PVC), were collected from an actual DWDS to investigate the effect of pipe material on bacterial community. Real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) and culture-based method were used to quantify bacteria. Read More

Molecular cloning of the alpha subunit of complement component C8 (CpC8α) of whitespotted bamboo shark (Chiloscyllium plagiosum).

Fish Shellfish Immunol 2013 Dec 27;35(6):1993-2000. Epub 2013 Sep 27.

The State Key Laboratory of Pharmaceutical Biotechnology, Nanjing University, Nanjing 210093, PR China; School of Life Science and Technology, China Pharmaceutical University, Nanjing 210009, PR China.

Complement-mediated cytolysis is the important effect of immune response, which results from the assembly of terminal complement components (C5b-9). Among them, α subunit of C8 (C8α) is the first protein that traverses the lipid bilayer, and then initiates the recruitment of C9 molecules to form pore on target membranes. In this article, a full-length cDNA of C8α (CpC8α) is identified from the whitespotted bamboo shark (Chiloscyllium plagiosum) by RACE. Read More

Molecular characterization and expression analysis of complement component C9 gene in the whitespotted bambooshark, Chiloscyllium plagiosum.

Fish Shellfish Immunol 2013 Aug 17;35(2):599-606. Epub 2013 May 17.

State Key Laboratory of Pharmaceutical Biotechnology, Nanjing University, No. 22 Hankou Rd, Gulou District, Nanjing 210093, PR China.

Complement system is known as highly sophisticated immune defense mechanism for antigen recognition as well as effector functions. Activation of the terminal pathway of the complement system leads to the assembly of terminal complement complexes (C5b-9), which induces the characteristic complement-mediated cytolysis. The lytic activity of shark complement involves functional analogues of mammalian C8 and C9. Read More

A model selection algorithm for a posteriori probability estimation with neural networks.

IEEE Trans Neural Netw 2005 Jul;16(4):799-809

Departamento de Teoría de la Señal y Comunicaciones e Ingeniería Telemática, Universidad de Valladolid, 47011 Valladolid, Spain.

This paper proposes a novel algorithm to jointly determine the structure and the parameters of a posteriori probability model based on neural networks (NNs). It makes use of well-known ideas of pruning, splitting, and merging neural components and takes advantage of the probabilistic interpretation of these components. The algorithm, so called a posteriori probability model selection (PPMS), is applied to an NN architecture called the generalized softmax perceptron (GSP) whose outputs can be understood as probabilities although results shown can be extended to more general network architectures.

Crystal structure of the extracellular protein secretion NTPase EpsE of Vibrio cholerae.

J Mol Biol 2003 Oct;333(3):657-74

Department of Biochemistry, Biomolecular Structure Center, University of Washington, P.O. Box 357742, Seattle, WA 98195, USA.

Type II secretion systems consist of an assembly of 12-15 Gsp proteins responsible for transporting a variety of virulence factors across the outer membrane in several pathogenic bacteria. In Vibrio cholerae, the major virulence factor cholera toxin is secreted by the Eps Type II secretion apparatus consisting of 14 Eps proteins. One of these, EpsE, is a cytoplasmic putative NTPase essential for the functioning of the Eps system and member of the GspE subfamily of Type II secretion ATPases. Read More

Mutual stabilization of the XcpZ and XcpY components of the secretory apparatus in Pseudomonas aeruginosa.

Microbiology (Reading) 1998 Dec;144 ( Pt 12):3379-3386

Protein secretion in gram-negative bacteria is often dependent on the general secretory pathway (GSP). In Pseudomonas aeruginosa, this system requires at least 12 Xcp (Gsp) proteins, which are proposed to constitute a multiprotein complex localized in the bacterial envelope. Hitherto, little was known about the mutual interactions between Xcp proteins. Read More
