Phytophthora sojae is an oomycete pathogen that causes root, stem, and leaf rot in soybean plants, frequently leading to massive economic losses. Despite its importance, the mechanism by which P. sojae penetrates the host is not yet fully understood. Evidence indicates that P. sojae is not capable of penetrating the plant cell wall via mechanical force, suggesting that alternative factors facilitate breakdown of the host cell wall and membrane. Members of the carbohydrate esterase (CE) family 10 (carboxylesterases, arylesterases, sterol esterases and acetylcholine esterases, collectively known as CE10), are thought to be important for this penetration process. To gain insight into the potential role of CE10-coding genes in P. sojae pathogenesis, the newly revised version of the P. sojae genome was searched for putative CE10-coding genes, and various bioinformatic analyses were conducted using their amino acid and nucleotide sequences. In addition, in planta infection assays were conducted with P. sojae Race 4 and soybean cultivars Williams and Williams 82, and the transcriptional activity of P. sojae CE10-coding genes was evaluated at different time points during infection. Results suggest that these genes are important for bot...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.


Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.


Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.
