An NGS-based assay for accurate detection and quantification of immune gene expression in mouse tumor modelsTumor microenvironment (TME) is a complex dynamic system with many tumor-interacting components including tumor-infiltrating leukocytes (TILs), cancer associated fibroblasts, blood vessels, and other stromal constituents. It intrinsically affects tumor develo… Read more at Plos.org


Genome-wide screening of meta-QTL and candidate genes controlling yield and yield-related traits in barley (Hordeum vulgare L.)

2024-05-20 14:00:00 UTC

Genome-wide screening of meta-QTL and candidate genes controlling yield and yield-related traits in barley (Hordeum vulgare L.)Increasing yield is an important goal of barley breeding. In this study, 54 papers published from 2001–2022 on QTL mapping for yield and yield-related traits in barley were collected, which contained 1080 QTLs mapped to the barley high-density consensus map f… Read more at Plos.org

SRC-1 controls growth cone polarity and protrusion with the UNC-6/Netrin receptor UNC-5 in Caenorhabditis elegans

2024-05-21 14:00:00 UTC

SRC-1 controls growth cone polarity and protrusion with the UNC-6/Netrin receptor UNC-5 in Caenorhabditis elegansThe Polarity/Protusion model of UNC-6/Netrin function in axon repulsion does not rely on a gradient of UNC-6/Netrin. Instead, the UNC-5 receptor polarizes the VD growth cone such that filopodial protrusions are biased to the dorsal leading edge. UNC-5 then in… Read more at Plos.org
