Abstract

Copy number variation (CNV), as an important component of genomic structural variation (SV), plays important roles in phenotypic variability, disease susceptibility estimates and species evolution. Currently, a large number of studies have been widely conducted to analyze genome-wide CNV of...

Abstract

Distant hybridization occurs widely in fishes and is a useful strategy to produce different ploidy offsprings. In this study, we obtained androgenetic blunt snout bream (2n=48, ADBSB), triploid hybrids (3n=124, 3nJB) and tetraploid hybrids (4n=148, 4nJB) from the hybridization of two species from...

Abstract

The core of the Vibrio Harveyi clade contains V. harveyi, V. campbellii, V. owensii, V. jasicida, and V. rotiferianus. They are well recognized aquatic animal pathogens, but misclassification has been common due to similarities in their rDNA sequences and phenotypes. To better understand their...

AbstractFull Text

Major histocompatibility complex (MHC), one of the vital functional gene families in vertebrates, encodes MHC molecule which has the function and ability to maintain the organism adapt to environmental changes from generation to generation, and is the best genetic marker for investigating adaptive...

Abstract

Avian integumentary organs include feathers, scales, claws, and beaks. They cover the body surface and play various functions to help adapt birds to diverse environments. These keratinized structures are mainly composed of corneous materials made of α-keratins, which exist in all vertebrates, and...

Abstract

Avian leukosis virus subgroup J (ALV-J) has successively infected white feather chickens, layer hens, cultivated yellow chickens, and indigenous chickens; infection rates and tumorigenicity have attracted increasingly extensive attention in China. To clarify the correlation of the epidemiological...

Abstract

To assess the status of avian leukosis virus (ALV) infection in indigenous chicken breeds in China, 121 plasma samples collected from various indigenous chicken breeds were tested for the presence of ALV from 2015 to 2016. A total of 14 ALV strains were isolated and identified, including two ALV-A...

Abstract

Background: Polyploidy and hybridization are both recognized as major forces in evolution. Most of our current knowledge about differences in gene regulation in polyploid hybrids comes from plant studies. The gene expression of diverged genomes and regulatory interactions are still unclear in lower ...

Abstract

Marek's Disease (MD) is one of the main infectious diseases that threaten the healthy development of the Chinese poultry industry. The evolution of epidemic strains of the MD Virus (MDV) in China is different from the evolution of strains overseas. The meq gene sequence of pathogenic strains is...

Abstract

The HA1 domain of HA, the major antigenic protein of influenza A viruses, contains all of the antigenic sites of HA and is under continual immune-driven selection. To resolve controversies on whether only a few or many residue sites of HA1 have undergone positive selection, whether positive...
