Genome-wide association study (GWAS) reveals the genetic architecture of four husk traits in maize

BMC Genomics

Nov 23, 2016

Zhenhai CuiYan He

Abstract

Maize (Zea mays) husk referring to the leafy outer enclosing the ear, plays an important role in grain production by directly contributing photosynthate and protecting ear from pathogen infection. Although the physiological functions related to husk have been extensively studied, little...read more

Cell migration is involved in a variety of physiological and pathological processes such as embryonic development, cancer metastasis, blood vessel formation and remoulding, tissue regeneration, immune surveillance and inflammation. Here is the latest research.

G-Protein-Coupled Receptors

G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), the largest family of integral membrane proteins, participate in the regulation of many physiological functions and are the targets of approximately 30% of currently marketed drugs. Here is the latest research.

Leukocytes Migration

Leukocyte migration is essential for reactions to inflammatory stimuli at various locations in the body. However, leukocyte movement is also crucial during non-inflammatory processes such as haematopoietic development and routine passage through secondary lymphoid organs, which is also required for effective antigen presentation. Discover the latest research on leukocyte migration here,

Morphogens and Pattern Formation

Morphogens are signaling factors that direct cell fate and tissue development at a distance from their source. They are involved in the establishment of positional information that is essential for pattern formation. Here is the latest research.

Cytoskeletal & Motor Biophysics

Cytoskeletal motors of the dynein, kinesin and myosin superfamilies maintain and adapt subcellular organelle organization to meet functional demands and support the vesicular transport of material between organelles. Here is the latest research on cytoskeletal and motor biophysics.
