  • Relationship between gene expression and the accumulation of catechin during spring and autumn in tea plants (Camellia sinensis L.)

    Min Liu; Heng-lu Tian; Jian-Hua Wu; Ren-Rong Cao; Run-Xian Wang; Xiao-Hua Qi; Qiang Xu; Xue-Hao Chen (2015)
    The tea plant (Camellia sinensis L.) is an important commercial crop with remarkably high catechin concentrations. Tea is popular worldwide given the plant's health benefits. Catechins are the main astringent substance in tea and are synthesized mainly via the phenylpropanoid pathway. In this study, eight cultivars of tea plants harvested both in spring and autumn were used to investigate differences in catechin concentrations by using high-performance liquid chromatography. The expression le...

    Pro-inflammatory effects of a litchi protein extract in murine RAW264.7 macrophages

    Xiaoli Wang; Xiaorong Hu; Huiqing Yan; Zhaocheng Ma; Xiuxin Deng (2017)
    It has been observed that the consumption of litchi often causes symptoms characterized by itching or sore throat, gum swelling, oral cavity ulcers and even fever and inflammation, which significantly impair the quality of life of a large population. Using the RAW264.7 cell line, a step-by-step strategy was used to screen for the components in litchi fruits that elicited adverse reactions. The adverse reaction fractions were identified by mass spectrometry and analyzed using the SMART program...

    The bZIP transcription factor MdHY5 regulates anthocyanin accumulation and nitrate assimilation in apple

    An, Jian-Ping; Qu, Feng-Jia; Yao, Ji-Fang; Wang, Xiao-Na; You, Chun-Xiang; Wang, Xiao-Fei; Hao, Yu-Jin (2017)
    The basic leucine zipper (bZIP) transcription factor HY5 plays a multifaceted role in plant growth and development. Here the apple MdHY5 gene was cloned based on its homology with Arabidopsis HY5. Expression analysis demonstrated that MdHY5 transcription was induced by light and abscisic acid treatments. Electrophoretic mobility shift assays and transient expression assays subsequently showed that MdHY5 positively regulated both its own transcription and that of MdMYB10 by binding to E-box an...

    Dynamic changes in proteins during apple (Malus x domestica) fruit ripening and storage

    Yun Shi; Li Jiang; Li Zhang; Ruoyi Kang; Zhifang Yu (2014)
    A proteomic study, using two-dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight/time-of-flight, was conducted in apple fruit (cv. ‘Golden Delicious’) starting at 10 days prior to harvest through 50 days in storage. Total protein was extracted using a phenol/sodium dodecyl sulfate protocol. More than 400 protein spots were detected in each gel and 55 differentially expressed proteins (p
