Abstract

Transposable elements (TEs) are genomic sequences that can move, multiply, and often form sizable fractions of vertebrate genomes. Fish belong to a unique group of vertebrates, since their karyotypes and genome sizes are more diverse and complex, with probably higher diversity and evolution...

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

Teleost genomes encode multiple multigene families of immunoglobulin domain-containing innate immune receptors (IIIRs) with unknown function and no clear mammalian orthologs. However, the genomic organization of IIIR gene clusters and the structure and signaling motifs of the proteins they encode...

Abstract

Synucleins (syns) are a family of proteins involved in several human neurodegenerative diseases and tumors. Since the first syn discovery in the brain of the electric ray Torpedo californica, members of the same family have been identified in all vertebrates and comparative studies have indicated...

Abstract

Comprehensive studies of the complement genes in basal vertebrates have revealed that cyclostomes have apparently primitive complement systems whereas bony fish have well-developed complement systems comparable to those of mammals. Here we have performed liver transcriptome analysis of a hammerhead ...

Abstract

Neurexophilin 1 (nxph1) has been considered a potential candidate marker for sperm storage in chicken sperm storage tubules. In this work, one mutation of chicken nxph1 was detected. We analyzed 18 nxph1 gene sequences from 18 species. The coding sequence length of the zebra fish nxph1 gene is 819...

Abstract

Elucidating the genetic mechanisms of organismal adaptation to the Tibetan Plateau at a genomic scale can provide insights into the process of adaptive evolution. Many highland species have been investigated and various candidate genes that may be responsible for highland adaptation have been...

Abstract

Background: Common carp (Cyprinus carpio) is thought to have undergone one extra round of genome duplication compared to zebrafish. Transcriptome analysis has been used to study the existence and timing of genome duplication in species for which genome sequences are incomplete. Large-scale...

Abstract

Interleukin 11 (IL-11), Intelectin (ITLN) and Purine nucleoside phosphorylase 5a (PNP5a) play important roles in innate immunity. In a previous study to identify differentially expressed immune-related genes, suppression subtractive hybridization (SSH) assay was used to characterize differentially...

Abstract

In mammals, cytosolic sensors retinoic acid-inducible gene I (RIG-I)-like receptors (RLRs) activate multiple signaling cascades initiating IFN-α/β expression. IFN regulatory factor 3 (IRF3) is required for the activation of IFN-β, which, in turn, primes the expression of most IFN-α genes by...
