Data from: Novel amphiphilic polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) functionalized silicone particles as carrier for low cost lipase immobilization

Shan Zhang, Qianchun Deng, Ya Li, Mingming Zheng, Chuyun Wan, Chang Zheng, Hu Tang, Fenghong Huang & Jie Shi
The high catalytic activity, specificity and stability of immobilization lipase have been drawn a great interests. How to reduce the cost of support materials has always been a hot topic in this field. Herein, for the development of low-cost immobilized lipase, we demonstrate an amphiphilic polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) grafted on silicone particles (SP) surface materials (SP-PVP) with rational design based on interfacial activation and solution polymerization. Meanwhile, the hydrophilic pristine SP and hydrophobic polystyrene-corded silicone particles...

Data from: Whitefly aggregation on tomato is mediated by feeding-induced changes in plant metabolites that influence the behavior and performance of conspecifics

1.Leaf damage caused by herbivore feeding often triggers induced resistance in plants. However, some herbivores can take advantage of the resulting metabolic changes in host plants and may even manipulate plant resistance, leading to a phenomenon known as induced susceptibility. 2.Previous work has shown that feeding by the whitefly Bemisia tabaci can reduce tomato Solanum lycopersicum resistance and that whiteflies tended to aggregate on infested plants. However, metabolomic changes in the plant and associated whitefly...

Data from: Widespread introgression in Chinese indigenous chicken breeds from commercial broiler

Chinese indigenous chickens constitute world-renowned genetic resources due to their excellent traits, including early puberty, good meat quality, and strong resistance to disease. Unfortunately, the introduction of a large number of commercial chickens in the past two decades has had an adverse effect on Chinese indigenous chickens. Using the chicken 60K single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) chip, we assessed the genetic diversity and population structure of 1,187 chickens, representing eight Chinese indigenous chicken breeds, two hybrid chicken...

Data from: Crop pests and predators exhibit inconsistent responses to surrounding landscape composition

Adler, Matthias Albrecht, Audrey Alignier, Gina M. Angelella, Muhammad Zubair Anjum … & Yi Zou
The idea that noncrop habitat enhances pest control and represents a win–win opportunity to conserve biodiversity and bolster yields has emerged as an agroecological paradigm. However, while noncrop habitat in landscapes surrounding farms sometimes benefits pest predators, natural enemy responses remain heterogeneous across studies and effects on pests are inconclusive. The observed heterogeneity in species responses to noncrop habitat may be biological in origin or could result from variation in how habitat and biocontrol are...

Data from: Host interaction analysis of PA-N155 and PA-N182 in chicken cells reveals an essential role of UBA52 for replication of H5N1 avian influenza virus

Qiao Wang, Qinghe Li, Tao Liu, Guobin Chang, Zhihao Sun, Zhao Gao, Fei Wang, Huaijun Zhou, Ranran Liu, Maiqing Zheng, Huanxian Cui, Guohong Chen, Hua Li, Xiaoya Yuan, Jie Wen, Daxin Peng & Guiping Zhao
PA-N155 and PA-N182 proteins were translated from the 11th and 13th start codon AUG of the RNA polymerase acidic protein (PA) mRNA of H5N1 influenza A virus (IAV), which plays an important role in viral replication. Little is known about the interactions between PA-N155 and PA-N182 and the host proteins. This study investigated the interaction landscape of PA-N155 and PA-N182 of H5N1 IAV in chicken cells while their interacting complexes were captured by immunoprecipitation and...

Data from: Bt rice plants may protect neighbouring non-Bt rice plants against the striped stem borer, Chilo suppressalis

Yaoyu Jiao, Xiaoyun Hu, Yufa Peng, Kongming Wu, Jörg Romeis & Yunhe Li
The area planted with insect-resistant genetically engineered crops expressing Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) genes has greatly increased in many areas of the world. Given the nearby presence of non-Bt crops (including those planted as refuges) and non-crop habitats, pests targeted by the Bt trait have a choice between Bt and non-Bt crops or weeds, and their host preference may greatly affect insect management and management of pest resistance to Bt proteins. In this study we examined...

Data from: Genome-wide SNP data revealed the extent of linkage disequilibrium, persistence of phase and effective population size in purebred and crossbred buffalo populations

Tingxian Deng, Aixin Liang, Jiajia Liu, Guohua Hua, Tingzhu Ye, Shenhe Liu, Giuseppe Campanile, Graham Plastow, Chunyan Zhang, Zhiquan Wang, Angela Salzano, Bianca Gasparrini, Martina Cassandro, Hasan Riaz, Xianwei Liang, Liguo Yang & Martino Cassandro
Linkage disequilibrium (LD) is a useful parameter for guiding the accuracy and power of both genome-wide association studies (GWAS) and genomic selection (GS) among different livestock species. The present study evaluated the extent of LD, persistence of phase and effective population size (Ne) for the purebred (Mediterranean buffalo; n=411) and crossbred [Mediterranean × Jianghan × Nili-Ravi buffalo, n=9; Murrah × Nili-Ravi × local (Xilin or Fuzhong) buffalo, n=36] buffalo populations using the 90K Buffalo SNP...

Data from: Behavioural thermoregulation alters microhabitat utilization and demographic rates in ectothermic invertebrates

Gang Ma, Chun-Ming Bai, Xue-Jing Wang, Muhammad Z. Majeed & Chun-Sen Ma
Study highlights ecological consequences of behavioural thermoregulation in ectotherms. This behaviour altered microhabitat utilization and population parameters in aphids. Thermoregulatory behaviour prevented the aphids from experiencing heat stress. It concurrently resulted in decreased survival and reproduction. This behaviour impacts microhabitat occupation and demographic rates in ectotherms.
