Differential metabolic response of tomato hybrids to herbivory
Poster May 15, 2009
In this study we have documented the HIPVs produced by different plant organs in three agronomically important Lycopersicon esculentem (tomato) cultivars in the event of herbivory. The nocturnal and diurnal feeding of third instar Spodoptera littura larvae induces characteristic VOCs mainly terpenes, in all the three hybrids viz., All Rounder, Shaktiman and Lakshmi.
Inhibition of The Auto-inflammation Suppressor Protein ISG15 Triggers Preeclampsia by Blocking Trophoblast Migration and InvasionPoster
In summary, ISG15 expression levels are crucial for trophoblast morphology and function (migration/invasion). By blocking trophoblast invasion, reduced ISG15 levels could contribute to impaired spiral artery transformation that reduces utero-placental blood flow in preeclampsia. Thus, agents inducing ISG15 expression are likely to be therapeutic in preeclampsia.
An Emerging Phenotype of Partial RAG 1/2 Deficiency Among Young Children with Autoimmunity and Viral InfectionsPoster
We describe the natural history of a cohort of 12 patients with confirmed partial RAG1/2 mutations and autoimmunity at a young age. We were seeking the link between viral infections and autoimmunity and tested candidate biomarkers that may reflect the underlying RAG1/2 protein deficiency.READ MORE
