GATA transcription factor in common bean: A comprehensive genome-wide functional characterization, identification, and abiotic stress response evaluation
Abdulla, Mohamed Farah; Mostafa, Karam; Aydin, Abdullah; Kavas, Musa; Aksoy, Emre (2024-06-01)
The GATA transcription factors (TFs) have been extensively studied for its regulatory role in various biological processes in many plant species. The functional and molecular mechanism of GATA TFs in regulating tolerance t...
Comparison and optimization of protocols and whole-genome capture conditions for ancient DNA samples
Yaka, Reyhan; Maja Krzewińska, Krzewinska; Lagerholm, Vendela Kempe; Linderholm, Anna; ÖZER, FÜSUN; Somel, Mehmet; Götherström, Anders (2024-05-01)
Ancient DNA (aDNA) obtained from human remains is typically fragmented and present in relatively low amounts. Here we investigate a set of optimal methods for producing aDNA data by comparing silica-based DNA extraction an...

Population Genomic History of the Endangered Anatolian and Cyprian Mouflons in Relation to Worldwide Wild, Feral, and Domestic Sheep Lineages
Atag, Gözde; et. al. (2024-05-01)
Once widespread in their homelands, the Anatolian mouflon (Ovis gmelini anatolica) and the Cyprian mouflon (Ovis gmelini ophion) were driven to near extinction during the 20th century and are currently listed as endangered...
Genome-wide association studies identifies genetic loci related to fatty acid and branched-chain amino acid metabolism and histone modifications under varying nitrogen treatments in safflower (Carthamus tinctorius)
Ali, Fawad; Arif, Mian A R; Ali, Arif; Nadeem, Muhammad A.; Aksoy, Emre; Bakhsh, Allah; Khan, Shahid U.; KURT, CEMAL; Tekdal, Dilek; Ilyas, Muhammad K.; Hameed, Amjad; Chung, Yong S.; Baloch, Faheem S. (2024-04-01)
Effective identification and usage of genetic variation are prerequisites for developing nutrient-efficient cultivars. A collection of 94 safflower (Carthamus tinctorius ) genotypes (G) was investigated for important morph...
Genome-wide characterization and expression analysis of GATA transcription factors under combination of light wavelengths and drought stress in potato
Aksoy, Emre; Yavuz, Caner; Yagiz, Ayten Kübra; Unel, Necdet Mehmet; Baloğlu, Mehmet Cengiz (2024-04-01)
GATA is one of the prominent transcription factor families conserved among many organisms in eukaryotes and has different biological roles in many pathways, particularly in light regulation in plants. Although GATA transcr...

Pastorino, Gil A; Sheraj, Ilır; Huebner, Kerstin; Ferrero, Giulio; Kunze, Philipp; Hartmann, Arndt; Hampel, Chuanpit; Hüsnügil, Hepşen Hazal; Maiuthed, Arnatchai; Gebhart, Florian; Schlattmann, Fynn; Gulec Taskiran, Aliye Ezgi; Oral, Goksu; Palmisano, Ralph; Pardini, Barbara; Naccarati, Alessio; Erlenbach-Wuensch, Katharina; Banerjee, Sreeparna; Schneider-Stock, Regine (2024-03-01)
Partial epithelial-mesenchymal transition (p-EMT) has recently been identified as a hybrid state consisting of cells with both epithelial and mesenchymal characteristics and is associated with the migration, metastasis, an...
Lysosomal alkalinization in nutrient restricted cancer cells activates cytoskeletal rearrangement to enhance partial epithelial to mesenchymal transition
Hüsnügil, Hepşen Hazal; Güleç Taşkıran, Aliye Ezgi; Güderer, İsmail; Nehri, Leman Nur; Oral, Göksu; Menemenli, Nazlı Şevval; Özcan, Özün; Noghreh, Ariana; AKYOL, AYTEKİN; Banerjee, Sreeparna (2024-03-01)
Introduction: Nutrient restriction in cancer cells can activate a number of stress response pathways for cell survival. We aimed to determine mechanistically how nutrient depletion in colorectal cancer (CRC) cells leads to...
SETD3 regulates endoderm differentiation of mouse embryonic stem cells through canonical Wnt signaling pathway.
Alganatay, Ceren; Balbasi, Emre; Tuncbag, Nurcan; Sezginmert, Dersu; Terzi Çizmecioğlu, Nihal (2024-02-29)
With self- renewal and pluripotency features, embryonic stem cells (ESCs) provide an invaluable tool to investigate early cell fate decisions. Pluripotency exit and lin-eage commitment depend on precise regulation of...
Tumor-Microenvironment-on-Chip Platform for Assessing Drug Response in 3D Dynamic Culture
Aydin, Hakan Berk; Moon, Hye-Ran; Han, Bumsoo; Ozcelikkale, Altug; Acar, Ahmet (Springer Nature, 2024-02-01)
Dynamic proximity interaction profiling suggests that YPEL2 is involved in cellular stress surveillance
Turan, Gizem; Olgun, Çağla Ece; Ayten, Hazal; Toker, Pelin; Ashyralyyev, Annageldi; Savaş, Büşra; KARACA EREK, EZGİ; Muyan, Mesut (2024-02-01)
YPEL2 is a member of the evolutionarily conserved YPEL family involved in cellular proliferation, mobility, differentiation, senescence, and death. However, the mechanism by which YPEL2, or YPEL proteins, mediates its effe...
