Myrcia ovata Cambess. (Myrtaceae) is a medicinal and aromatic plant that has analgesic, bactericidal and fungicidal properties. Even though this plant has economic potential, nothing is known about the variability and genetic diversity of this species. This information is necessary to establish conservation strategies and allo.. Read More»

Genetic expression of pobA and fabHB in Bacillus licheniformis M2-7 in the presence of benzo[a]pyrene

Authors: Augusto Rojas-Aparicio, José A. Hernández-Eligio, Jeiry Toribio-Jiménez, Miguel Á. Rodríguez-Barrera, Mildred Castellanos-Escamilla and Yanet Romero-Ramírez

Bacillus licheniformis M2-7 is a heat-resistant bacterium able to biotransform polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. It can transform a wide range of these compounds as naphthalene, phenanthrene, pyrene and benzo[a]pyrene. Benzo[a]pyrene is a polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon of high molecular weight considered as potentially toxic .. Read More»

Isolation and characterization of twenty-three microsatellite loci for the black rockfish, Sebastes schlegelii

Authors: F. Wang, H. B. Jiang, C. H. Han, G. P Cui, C. F. Jia, H.T. Ma

Twenty-three polymorphic microsatellite loci were developed from the black rockfish, Sebastes schlegelii, with an enriched partial genomic library by magnetic beads and polymorphism of these loci was assessed in 32 individuals from a wild population. The loci yielded 2-19 alleles per locus, the observed, expected heterozygosit.. Read More»

Expression of lipid metabolism and myosin heavy chain genes in pigs is affected by genotype and dietary lysine

Authors: RC Veloso, PS Lopes, MS Duarte, FF Silva, A Saraiva, ML Chizzotti, W Silva and SEF Guimarães

Expression of lipid metabolism and myosin heavy chain genes was evaluated in skeletal muscle of pig’s genotypes submitted to different dietary digestible lysine contents. Fifty-two barrows and fifty gilts from three genotypes (G: Piau, Duroc and Pietrain crossbreds) were assigned to three dietary digestible lysine conten.. Read More»

Preliminary analysis on the developmental transcriptomes of swallowtail butterfly Papilio polytes (Lepidoptera: Papilioidae)

Authors: Shun Yao, Yun-liang Wang, Rui-song Tao, Cheng-yong Su, Jia-sheng Hao

The butterflies are one of the insect groups which undergo typical complete metamorphosis in their life history. However, up to now, little is known about the genomic mechanism that regulates the butterfly metamorphosis. In this study, using a swallowtail butterfly P. polytes as a model organism, a high-throughput sequencing p.. Read More»

Novel polymorphisms in bovine CD4 and LAG-3 genes associated with somatic cell counts of clinical mastitis cows

Authors: Tahir Usman, Yachun Wang, Minyan Song1, Xiao Wang, Yichun Dong, Chao Liu, Shuxiang Wang, Yi Zhang, Wei Xiao, Ying Yu

Clinical mastitis cows normally produce clotted milk, thus the much higher somatic cells in milk are unable to be counted by routine FOSS machine. The proteins coded by CD4 and LAG-3 genes can bind to MHC class II molecules and play important roles in in-flammatory diseases. The present study was designed to investigate the ef.. Read More»
