A key strategy for biofuel production is making use of the chemical energy stored in plant cell walls. Cell walls are a strong meshwork of sugar chains and other polymers that encircle each plant cell. Collectively known as lignocellulose, cell wall material represents the bulk of plant dry mass. Biofuels ...

Problem statement: More and more evidences have shown that human cancer cells can express Foxp3, the regulatory T cell-associated transcription factor. The role of Foxp3 in human cancer cells is still unclear. We detected Foxp3 expression in human pancreatic cancer cell line PANC-1. SiRNA assays showed that Foxp3 expression suppressed ...
