Abstract

Heat-shock (HS) assays to understand the connection between standing inversion variation and evolutionary response to climate change in Drosophila subobscura found that "warm-climate" inversion O3+4 exhibits non-HS levels of Hsp70 protein like those of "cold-climate" OST after HS induction. This...

Abstract

Background: Sheep have developed the ability to store fat in their tails, which is a unique way of reserving energy to survive a harsh environment. However, the mechanism underlying this adaptive trait remains largely unsolved. Results: In the present study, we provide evidence for the genetic...

Abstract

After domestication 11 000 years ago in Asia Minor, the goat followed human migration to Europe and Asia. It was then introduced in Africa and is now raised all over the world. In this study, we exploited a dataset composed of 54 000 SNPs (Illumina goat DNA chip) to analyze the genetic diversity of ...

Abstract

Background: Ponies are highly susceptible to metabolic derangements including hyperinsulinemia, insulin resistance, and adiposity. Hypothesis/Objectives: Genetic loci affecting height in ponies have pleiotropic effects on metabolic pathways and increase the susceptibility to equine metabolic...

Abstract

Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) insertions have been detected in the nuclear genome of many eukaryotes. These sequences are pseudogenes originated by horizontal transfer of mtDNA fragments into the nuclear genome, producing nuclear DNA sequences of mitochondrial origin (numt). In this study we determined ...

Abstract

Background: Solea senegalensis (Kaup, 1858) is a commercially important flatfish species, belonging to the Pleuronectiformes order. The taxonomy of this group has long been controversial, and the karyotype of the order presents a high degree of variability in diploid number, derived from...

Abstract

The small, secreted peptide, insulin-like growth factor 2 (IGF2), is essential for fetal and prenatal growth in humans and other mammals. Human IGF2 and mouse Igf2 genes are located within a conserved linkage group and are regulated by parental imprinting, with IGF2/Igf2 being expressed from the...

Abstract

Making my career in Australia exposed me to the tyranny of distance, but it gave me opportunities to study our unique native fauna. Distantly related animal species present genetic variation that we can use to explore the most fundamental biological structures and processes. I have compared...

Abstract

The Sox gene family has been systematically characterized in some fish species but not in catfish Ictalurus punctatus. In this study, 25 Sox genes were identified in the channel catfish genome and classified into seven families based on their conserved domains as follows: eight genes in SoxB group...

Abstract

Spermatogenesis is a finely regulated process of germ cell multiplication and differentiation leading to the production of spermatozoa in the seminiferous tubules. Spermatogenesis can be divided into three parts: spermatocytogenesis, meiosis and spermiogenesis. During spermatocytogenesis, germ...
