A Gypsy element contributes to the nuclear retention and transcriptional regulation of the resident lncRNA in locusts

Xia Zhang, Ya′Nan Zhu, Bing Chen & Le Kang
The majority of long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) contain transposable elements (TEs). PAHAL, a nuclear-retained lncRNA that is inserted by a Gypsy retrotransposon, has been shown to be a vital regulator of phenylalanine hydroxylase (PAH) gene expression that controls dopamine biosynthesis and behavioural aggregation in the migratory locust. However, the role of the Gypsy retrotransposon in the transcriptional regulation of PAHAL remains unknown. Here, we identified a Gypsy retrotransposon (named Gypsy element) as an inverted long...

Plant elicitor peptide 1 fortifies root cell walls and triggers a systemic root-to-shoot immune signaling in Arabidopsis

Jie Zhang, Yuxi Li, Qixin Bao, Hongbo Wang & Shuguo Hou
Plant immunity is initiated by cell surface-localized receptors upon perception of pathogen-derived microbe or pathogen-associated molecular patterns (MAMPs/PAMPs), damage/danger-associated molecular patterns (DAMPs), and phytocytokines. Different patterns activate highly overlapping immune signaling at the early stage but divergent physiological responses at the late stage. Here, we indicate that plant elicitor peptide 1 (Pep1), a well-known DAMP, induces lignin and callose depositions, two types of late immune responses for strengthening the plant cell wall. Pep1-induced lignin and...

Bayesian Optimal Phase II Design for Randomized Clinical Trials

Yujie Zhao, Bo Yang, J. Jack Lee, Li Wang & Ying Yuan
Randomized clinical trials are the gold standard to evaluate the efficacy of an experimental treatment. We propose a flexible Bayesian optimal phase II (BOP2) design for two-arm randomized trials. The proposed two-arm BOP2 design is flexible and can handle single, multiple primary and coprimary endpoints for superiority and noninferiority trials under a unified framework. It also allows users to specify the number and timing of interim analyses to meet clinical needs. While enjoying the flexibility...

Selective autophagic degradation of ACLY (ATP citrate lyase) maintains citrate homeostasis and promotes oocyte maturation

Hainan He, Junling Wang, Xingmei Mou, Xin Liu, Qiao Li, Mingyue Zhong, Bingbing Luo, Zhisheng Yu, Jingjing Zhang, Tian Xu, Chengli Dou, Danya Wu, Wei Qing, Linhui Wu, Kai Zhou, Zhengang Fan, Tingting Wang, Taotao Hu, Xia Zhang, Jilong Zhou & Yi-Liang Miao
Macroautophagy/autophagy is a cellular and energy homeostatic mechanism that contributes to maintain the number of primordial follicles, germ cell survival, and anti-ovarian aging. However, it remains unknown whether autophagy in granulosa cells affects oocyte maturation. Here, we show a clear tendency of reduced autophagy level in human granulosa cells from women of advanced maternal age, implying a potential negative correlation between autophagy levels and oocyte quality. We therefore established a co-culture system and show that...
