Expression of a single siRNA against a conserved region of NP gene strongly inhibits in vitro replication of different influenza A virus strains of avian and swine origin.

Influenza A virus is the principal agent responsible of the respiratory tract's infections in humans. Every year, highly pathogenic and infectious strains with new antigenic assets appear, making ineffective vaccines so far developed. The discovery of RNA interference (RNAi) opened the way to the...

An overview of plant pathology and application of next-generation sequencing technologies.

Next-generation sequencing (NGS) platforms became available commercially about a decade ago. They provide highly efficient, rapid, and low-cost high-throughput and deep DNA sequencing. They are being continually improved to become faster, more efficient and cheaper and have been used in biology...

AbstractFull Text

Molecular cloning and sequence analysis of a Terpene synthase (McTPS1) gene in Matricaria chamomilia.

A terpene synthase (TPS) gene (designated as McTPS1) cDNA was cloned from Matricaria chamomilia using a pair of specific primers. The cDNA fragment of McTPS1 was 1719 bp and encoded a protein of 572 amino acids. The theoretical molecular weight and isoelectric point of the deduced McTPS1 protein...
