Comparing KISS1 and GPR54 genes between the two breeds of goats with low and high prolificacy

Authors: Jie Zheng, Sayed Haidar Abbas Raza, Xiang-Dong Zi, Jian-Yuan Lu

There is increasing evidence that kisspeptin, the peptide product of KISS1 gene and its receptor (GPR54), regulate reproductive processes through actions on other organs than hypothalamus. Therefore, the study for the first time, was conducted to investigate the nucleotide sequences and mRNA expression levels of KISS1 and GPR54 genes in pituitary, endomet.. Read More»

Genetic diversity of a native population of Myrcia ovata (Myrtaceae) using ISSR molecular markers

Authors: L.A.S. White1, A.V.C. Silva2, S.V. Alvares-Carvalho1, R. Silva-Mann1, M.F. Arrigoni-Blank1, E.M.S. Souza1, C.S. Almeida1, D.A.C. Nizio1, T.S. Sampaio1 and A.F. Blank1

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 and phenotypic association of the carnauba palm tree evaluated by inter-simple sequence repeat and biometric traits

Authors: C.G. Fajardo, R.A.R. Silva, K.P.T. Chagas, F.A. Vieira

The carnauba palm Copernicia prunifera is the third most important non-timber forest species in Brazil; it is mainly known for the production of carnauba wax. We examined intrapopulation genetic diversity and correlated genotypic and phenotypic traits of 28 trees from a coastal location in Rio Grande do Norte state. Phenotypic.. 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»

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»
