Abstract

This experiment was conducted to investigate the expression level of cholecystokinin A receptor (CCKAR) mRNA in hypothalamus and its correlation with feed efficiency traits in meat-type ducks with high and low residual feed intake. A total of 1 000 male ducks with complete pedigree information were ...

Abstract

Wing venation among insects serves as an excellent model to address how diversified patterns are produced. Previous studies suggest that evolutionarily conserved Decapentaplegic (Dpp)/Bone Morphogenetic Protein (BMP) signal plays a critical role in wing vein development in the dipteran Drosophila...

Abstract

Cuticle, mainly composed of chitin and cuticular proteins (CPs), is a multifunctional structure of arthropods. CPs usually account for >1% of the total insect proteins. Why does an insect encode so many different CP genes in the genome? In this study, we use comprehensive large-scale...

Abstract

Wolbachia are maternally inherited, intracellular bacteria at the forefront of vector control efforts to curb arbovirus transmission. In international field trials, the cytoplasmic incompatibility (CI) drive system of wMel Wolbachia is deployed to replace target vector populations, whereby a ...

Abstract

N-ethylmaleimide sensitive factor (NSF) and α-soluble NSF attachment protein (α-SNAP) are essential eukaryotic housekeeping proteins that cooperatively function to sustain vesicular trafficking. The "resistance to Heterodera glycines 1" (Rhg1) locus of soybean (Glycine max) confers resistance to...

Abstract

The evolution of development has been studied through the lens of gene regulation by examining either closely related species or extremely distant animals of different phyla. In nematodes, detailed cell- and stage-specific expression analyses are focused on the model Caenorhabditis elegans, in part ...

Abstract

Ascorbate peroxidase (APX) is a member of heme-containing peroxidases which catalyze the H2O2-dependent oxidation of a wide range of substrates in plants and animals. As is known, H2O2 acts as a signaling molecule in the regulation of fiber development. Our previous work reported that ascorbate...

Abstract

The full-length cDNA of bystin isoform 1 (PmBys1) of the giant tiger shrimp Penaeus monodon was characterized. It was 1553 bp in length containing an ORF of 1365 bp corresponding to a polypeptide of 454 amino acids. The level of PmBys1 mRNA in ovaries was greater than that in other tissues of...

Abstract

The goal of this study was to clone and characterize complete cDNA sequences of three important development-relevant genes of yellow catfish Pelteobagrus fulvidraco, including lrp6, sox9a1 and fgfr2c, and explore their transcriptional responses in several tissues of P. fulvidraco to high fat diet....

Abstract

Desaturase enzymes play an important role in the synthesis of unsaturated fatty acids. In this study, a complete cDNA sequence of a Δ6 desaturase-like gene was cloned from the hepatopancreas of the red claw crayfish, Cherax quadricarinatus. The full-length 1885 bp sequence comprises a 5′UTR of 254...
