Preparation of cDNA Library for dRNA-seq
Authors:  Feng Li and Barbara Baker, date: 12/05/2012, view: 13947, Q&A: 0
microRNAs (miRNAs) are ubiquitous regulators of gene expression in eukaryotic organisms, which guide Argonaute proteins (AGO) to cleave target mRNA or inhibit its translation based on sequence complementarity. In plants, miRNA directed cleavage ...

Tomato Stem Injection for the Precise Assessment of Ralstonia solanacearum Fitness in Planta
Authors:  Yaru Wang, Liu Xian, Gang Yu and Alberto P. Macho, date: 08/20/2021, view: 973, Q&A: 0

Ralstonia solanacearum is a soil-borne pathogen with worldwide distribution that causes bacterial wilt disease in more than 250 plant species. R. solanacearum invades plants through the roots, reaches the vascular system, and colonizes the whole

Ribosomal RNA N-glycosylase Activity Assay of Ribosome-inactivating Proteins
Authors:  Rosario Iglesias, Lucía Citores and José M. Ferreras, date: 03/20/2017, view: 9644, Q&A: 0
Ribosome-inactivating proteins (RIPs) are enzymes that irreversibly inactivate ribosomes as a consequence of their N-glycosylase (EC activity. The enzyme cleaves the N-glycosidic bond between the adenine No. 4324 from the 28S rRNA and its ...

Rice Ragged Stunt Virus Propagation and Infection on Rice Plants
Authors:  Chao Zhang, Chaonan Shi, Dong Chen and Jianguo Wu, date: 10/20/2018, view: 4130, Q&A: 0
Virus inoculation is a basic experimental procedure to evaluate the resistance of a rice variety or a transgenic material upon virus infection. We recently demonstrated that Rice Ragged Stunt Virus (RRSV), an oryzavirus that is ...
