- ... Transposable elements account for up to 85% of the maize genome and have significant implications in crop-improvement and evolutionary analyses. The Mutator (Mu) transposon superfamily, a class of DNA transposons, comprises the most complex and active elements in the maize genome, suggesting a special role in plant evolution. Here, we designed a set of Mu-specific primers based on terminal invert ...

- ... Mesenchymal stem cells and pluripotent stem cells are recognized as promising tools for tissue engineering, cell therapy, and drug screening. Their use in therapy requires the production of a sufficient number of cells committed to functional regenerative phenotypes. Time- and magnitude-controlled application of mechanical and biochemical cues is required to appropriately control the evolution of ...
