Abstract

Aquaporins (Aqps) are a class of water channel proteins that play key roles in many physiological functions and cellular processes. Here, we analyzed 166 putative Aqp genes in 12 fish species and divided them into four groups. Gene organization and motif distribution analyses suggested potentially...

Abstract

Mx proteins are antiviral GTPases, which are induced by type I IFN and virus infection. Analysis of the Atlantic salmon genome revealed the presence of 9 Mx genes localized to three chromosomes. A cluster of three Mx genes (SsaMx1-SsaMx3), which includes previously cloned Mx genes, is present on...

Abstract

The family of forkhead box (Fox) transcription factors regulates gonadogenesis and embryogenesis, but the role of foxr1 in reproduction is unknown. Evolutionary history of foxr1 in vertebrates was examined and the gene was found to exist in most vertebrates, including mammals, ray-finned fish,...

Abstract

Intelectin displays carbohydrate binding capacity and has been demonstrated to agglutinate bacteria, suggesting its role in innate immunity. It has also been linked to many pathogenic conditions in human. After reporting two amphioxus orthologs and the zebrafish intelectin 2 (zITLN2), here we...

Abstract

Autophagy is a homeostatic process which degrades cytoplasmic constituents to maintain the balance of organs when they were challenged with nutrient stress. It also participates in cancer, neurodegenerative disorders, aging and innate immune defense. In order to reveal how autophagy participates in ...

Abstract

Background: Although teleost fish developed acquired immunity firstly in evolution, innate immunity is still very important for them. Innate immunity depends on pattern recognition receptors (PRRs) to distinguish "self" and "non-self", Peptidoglycan (PGN) recognition protein (PGRP) is one of the...

Abstract

A primitive adaptive immune system has recently been suggested to be present in a basal chordate amphioxus (Branchiostoma belcheri, Bb), making it an ideal model for studying the origin of adaptive immune. The novel protein kinase C isoform PKC-θ, but not its closest isoform PKC-δ, plays a critical ...

Abstract

Grass carp, an economically important aquaculture fish, is very sensitive to Grass Carp Reovirus (GCRV). Haemorrhagic disease caused by GCRV infection can cause large-scale death of first-year grass carp, thereby severely restricting the intensive culture. Serpins (serine protease inhibitors)...

Abstract

Haemorrhagic disease caused by grass carp reovirus (GCRV) can result in large-scale death of young grass carp, leading to irreparable economic losses that seriously affect large-scale breeding. Protein kinase C (PKC, also known as PRKC) represents a family of serine/threonine protein kinases that...

Abstract

Several studies have highlighted the changes in the gene expression due to the hypoxia response in fishes, but the systematic organization of the information and the analytical platform for such genes are lacking. In the present study, an attempt was made to develop a database of hypoxia responsive ...
