A High Resolution Short Interfering RNA (siRNA) Detection Method from Virus-infected Plants
Authors:  Vinay Panwar and Guus Bakkeren, date: 10/20/2013, view: 5788, Q&A: 0
Plant viruses are strong inducers as well as targets of RNA silencing. In plants RNA silencing acts as a natural defense mechanism against viral infection and is associated with accumulation of virus-specific small interfering RNAs (siRNAs). The ...

Measuring Nucleosome Assembly Activity in vitro with the Nucleosome Assembly and Quantification (NAQ) Assay
Authors:  Francesca Mattiroli, Yajie Gu and Karolin Luger, date: 02/05/2018, view: 119, Q&A: 0
Nucleosomes organize the eukaryotic genome into chromatin. In cells, nucleosome assembly relies on the activity of histone chaperones, proteins with high binding affinity to histones. At least a subset of histone chaperones promotes histone ...

Wheat Coleoptile Inoculation by Fusarium graminearum for Large-scale Phenotypic Analysis
Authors:  Lei-Jie Jia, Wan-Qiu Wang and Wei-Hua Tang, date: 08/05/2017, view: 1219, Q&A: 0
The ascomycete fungus Fusarium graminearum is a destructive fungal pathogen of wheat, barley and maize. Although reverse genetics and homologous recombination gene deletion methods have generated thousands of gene deletion mutants of F. ...
