Maruyama and his colleagues including Project Assistant Professor Naoya Sugi and Rie Izumi developed new live-imaging system and captured the moment of sperm cell maturation prior to double fertilization in a model plant Arabidopsis thaliana.
Pollen tube attraction is a key event of sexual reproduction in flowering plants. In the ovule, two synergid cells neighboring the egg cell control pollen tube arrival via the active secretion of attractant peptides such as AtLURE1 and XIUQIU from the filiform apparatus (FA) facing toward the micropyle. Distinctive cell polarity together with longitudinal F-actin and microtubules are hallmarks of the synergid cell in various species, though the functions of these cellular structures are unclear.
•An old woman developed interstitial pneumonia after mRNA-1273 vaccination.
•The patient's symptoms, laboratory findings, and images were similar to those of COVID-19.
•Serological and pathological tests were useful in diagnosing vaccine-induced acute respiratory distress syndrome.
•Serum level of antibodies against spike protein was extremely high.
Chromosomal translocation generates the MLL-AF4 fusion gene, which causes acute leukemia of multiple lineages. MLL-AF4 is a strong oncogenic driver that induces leukemia without additional mutations and is the most common cause of pediatric leukemia. However, establishment of a murine disease model via retroviral transduction has been difficult owning to a lack of understanding of its regulatory mechanisms.
