Zhenxing Gong, Miaomiao Li, Yaoyuan Qi, Na Zhang
In the formation mechanism of the feedback environment, the existing research pays attention to external feedback sources and regards individuals as objects passively accepting feedback. Thus, the external source fails to realize the individuals' need for feedback, and the feedback environment cannot provide them with useful information, leading to a feedback vacuum. The aim of this study is to examine the effect of feedback-seeking by different strategies on the supervisor-feedback environment through supervisor identification...

BACKGROUND: How to develop new cotton varieties possessing high yield traits of Upland cotton and superior fiber quality traits of Sea Island cotton remains a key task for cotton breeders and researchers. While multiple attempts bring in little significant progresses, the development of Chromosome Segment Substitution Lines (CSSLs) from Gossypium barbadense in G. hirsutum background provided ideal materials for aforementioned breeding purposes in upland cotton improvement. Based on the excellent fiber performance and relatively clear chromosome substitution segments information identified by Simple Sequence Repeat (SSR) markers, two CSSLs, MBI9915 and MBI9749, together with the recurrent parent CCRI36 were chosen to conduct transcriptome sequencing during the development stages of fiber elongation and Secondary Cell Wall (SCW) synthesis (from 10DPA and 28DPA), aiming at revealing the mechanism of fiber development and the potential contribution of chromosome substitution segments from Sea Island cotton to fiber development of Upland cotton...

AIMS: Atherosclerosis is the most common cause of cardiovascular disease, such as myocardial infarction and stroke. Previous study revealed that microRNA (miR)-134 promotes lipid accumulation and proinflammatory cytokine secretion through angiopoietin-like 4 (ANGPTL4)/lipid lipoprotein (LPL) signaling in THP-1 macrophages. METHODS: ApoE KO male mice on a C57BL/6 background were fed a high-fat/high-cholesterol Western diet, from 8 to 16 weeks of age. Mice were divided into four groups, and received a tail vein injection of miR-134 agomir, miR-134 antagomir, or one of the corresponding controls, respectively, once every 2 weeks after starting the Western diet...

Paeoniflorin (PF) is an active monoterpene glycoside extracted from Paeonia lactiflora Pall. PF has exhibited antitumor effects in various cancer types. However, the effects of PF in pancreatic cancer are largely unexplored. Here, we showed that PF suppressed growth of pancreatic cancer cell lines Capan-1 and MIAPaCa-2 and profoundly sensitized these cells to X-ray irradiation. Through microarray analysis, we identified HTRA3, a tumor-suppressor candidate gene, as the most increased gene upon PF treatment in Capan-1 cells...

Deregulated activity of Ras GTPases has been observed in many types of human cancers, and contributes to the diverse aspects of carcinogenesis. Although the significance in tumorigenesis has been widely accepted and many therapeutic drugs are under development, little attention has been dedicated to the development of sensors for the Ras activity in vivo. Therefore, based on the split firefly luciferase complementation strategy, we developed a monomolecular bioluminescent biosensor to image endogenous Ras activity in living subject...
