Disease relevance of Vicia

  • The Vicia graminea lectin receptor of the nonstrain-specific TA3-Ha mammary carcinoma ascites cell of the strain A mouse was shown to be predominantly or exclusively on a large mucin-type surface glycoprotein [1].
  • Flavonoids released by roots of Vicia sativa subsp. nigra (V. sativa) activate nodulation genes of the homologous bacterium Rhizobium leguminosarum biovar viciae (R. l. viciae) [2].
  • The 16.7 kbp dsRNA specific to the '447' cytoplasmic male sterility (CMS) line of Vicia faba was labelled in vitro with [alpha-32P]ATP and poly(A) polymerase, and by T4 RNA ligase-mediated addition of [32P]pCp [3].
  • Induction of numerical chromosomal aberrations during DNA synthesis using the fungicides nimrod and rubigan-4 in root tips of Vicia faba L [4].
  • More than 100 sera from patients with scleroderma CREST (calcinosis, Raynaud phenomenon, esophageal dismotility, sclerodactyly, telangiectasia) were tested in order to detect antigenic nuclear components of the field bean Vicia faba (2n = 12) [5].

Psychiatry related information on Vicia

  • The sub-lethal effects of dimethoate residue on the distribution and locomotor activity of adults of Coccinella septempunctata Linnaeus on Vicia faba plants were investigated in the laboratory [6].

High impact information on Vicia

  • Mass spectrometry-generated peptide sequence information was used to clone a Vicia faba complementary DNA, AAPK, encoding a guard cell-specific ABA-activated serine-threonine protein kinase (AAPK) [7].
  • The three-dimensional structure of favin, the glucose- and mannose-binding lectin of Vicia faba (vetch, broad bean), has been determined at a resolution of 2.8 angstroms by molecular replacement [8].
  • These Ts can be detected only if mice are pretreated with cyclophosphamide (Cy) or if cells adherent to the lectin Vicia villosa are removed from the spleen cell population prior to transfer [9].
  • Evidence is presented for the specific interaction of the CTL-associated glycoprotein T 145 with a lectin derived from Vicia villosa seeds [10].
  • Tn-Ag is composed of another carbohydrate chain, alpha-GalNAc-serine/threonine, and binds specifically to Vicia villosa agglutinin (VVA) [11].

Chemical compound and disease context of Vicia


Biological context of Vicia


Anatomical context of Vicia


Associations of Vicia with chemical compounds

  • Biological function was assayed under voltage clamp, monitoring the ability of the peptides to evoke auxin-related modulations in inward- (IK,in) and outward-rectifying (IK,out) K+ channel activities of Vicia guard cells in the absence of added auxin [26].
  • We show, by using the ethylene inhibitors AVG and Ag+, that ethylene has no role in the reinitiation of root hair tip growth induced by Nod factors (root hair deformation) in vetch [27].
  • All of these molecules cause root hair deformation on Vicia sativa and Glycine soja [28].
  • The B4 lectin from Vicia villosa seeds interacts with N-acetylgalactosamine residues alpha-linked to serine or threonine residues in cell surface glycoproteins [29].
  • Oxygenation of (3Z)-nonenal to (2E)-4-hydroxy-2-nonenal in the broad bean (Vicia faba L.) [30].

Gene context of Vicia

  • In-gel assays indicated that OST1 is an ABA-activated protein kinase related to the Vicia faba ABA-activated protein kinase (AAPK) [31].
  • A constitutively expressed cpp1 gene reduces the expression of a Gmlbc3 promoter-gusA reporter construct in Vicia hirsuta roots [32].
  • They do not express H-2Kb molecules, and the alpha-galactosyl epitopes (Gal alpha 1-3Gal beta 1-4GlcNAc-R) they fail to react with soybean agglutinin (SBA), peanut agglutinin (PNA), and vicia villosa (VV) lectins [33].
  • In this report, we cloned, sequenced and characterized a gene encoding FKBP12 in Vicia faba (VfFKBP12) [34].
  • Both drugs inhibited the activity of immunopurified Vicia faba and alfalfa Cdc2-kinase [20].
