Abstract

The purpose of this study is to understand the genetic variation of parainfluenza virus 5 (PIV5) and to elucidate its of genome and genetic evolution charactertion. Vero cells were inoculated with sample suspect infected PIV5 of a tiger from a zoo in Guangdong Province. The isolated strain was...

Abstract

Germin-like proteins (GLPs) are involved in biotic and abiotic stress tolerance in different plant species. Rice (Oryza sativa L.) genome contains about 40 GLP family member proteins in nine chromosomes. Although some of the rice GLP (OsGLP) promoters have been studied through in silico analysis as ...

Abstract

The sequences of miR-23 gene family were retrieved from the miRBase database using bioinformatics methods. The position of miR-23 in the genome was determined using the Ensembl database. The miR-23 phylogenetic tree was constructed using MEGA 5.0, and then quantified using RT-qPCR. The expression...

Abstract

Hepatitis B virus (HBV) and its hepadnavirus relatives infect a wide range of vertebrates, from fish to human. Hepadnaviruses and their hosts have a long history of acquiring adaptive mutations. However, there are no reports providing direct molecular evidence for such a coevolutionary "arms race"...

Abstract

To investigate the genetic diversity and phyletic evolution and understand the maternal origin of Dagu chicken, Dagu chickens were used as material, by PCR amplification and sequencing technique, complete mtDNA D-loop sequences of Dagu chickens were analyzed with the 19 red jungle fowl sequences in ...

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

Variation in immune defense influences infectious disease dynamics within and among species. Understanding how variation in immunity drives pathogen transmission among species is especially important for animals that are reservoir hosts for zoonotic pathogens. Bats, in particular, have a propensity ...

Abstract

Microsporidia are intracellular eukaryotic parasites of animals, characterized by unusual morphological and genetic features. They can be divided in three main groups, the classical microsporidians presenting all the features of the phylum and two putative primitive groups, the chytridiopsids and...

Abstract

Phylogenetic analyses of foot-and-mouth disease type A viruses in the Middle East during 2015-2016 identified viruses belonging to the A/ASIA/G-VII lineage, which originated in the Indian subcontinent. Changes in a critical antigenic site within capsid viral protein 1 suggest possible evolutionary...

Abstract

The evolutionary causes and consequences of changes in complex life cycles are of central importance in parasitology. However, data remain limited because in part, knowledge on phylogenetic relationships among species that differ in life cycle patterns remains scarce. We present a molecular...
