MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of small non-coding RNAs of 20-25 nucleotides in length. It has been shown that miRNAs play important roles in the proliferation of many types of cells, including myoblasts. In this study, we used real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction, western blotting, EdU, flow cytometry, and CCK-8 assay to explore the role of(More)

A total of 48 crossbred Bamei pig carcasses were divided into three groups (A, 60-69 kg; B, 70-79 kg; and C, 80-90 kg) to investigate the influence of carcass weight on meat quality. The intramuscular fat content of the three groups increased from 2.20% (Group A) to 4.14% (Group C). Group B had higher drip loss (6.83%, P < 0.05) than the other two groups.(More)
Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV) is one of the most economically important viruses affecting the swine industry worldwide. MicroRNAs have recently been demonstrated to play vital roles in virus-host interactions. Our previous research on small RNA deep sequencing showed that the expression level of miR-10a increased during the(More)
Transforming growth factor β (TGF-β), acting as the auto/para endocrine factors, has multi-function in mammalian follicle development. Bone morphogenetic protein and activin membrane-bound inhibitor (BAMBI) is considered as a pseudoreceptor in the TGF-β signal pathway which has the similar extracellular structure of TGF-β receptor but lack of intracellular(More)
In mammals, granulosa cell proliferation, differentiation, luteinization, apoptosis, and hormone synthesis are tightly related to oocyte maturation, follicular development and ovarian function. In current study, we investigated the role of the key circadian clock gene, brain and muscle arnt-like protein-1 (Bmal1), on porcine granulosa cell hormone secretion(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the myogenic factor mRNA expression pattern of Pax7, Myf5, MyoG, and Myostatin mRNA at different ages, sexes, and muscle tissues of Datong yaks. The expression patterns in semimembranosus (SM), quadriceps femoris (QF), and triceps muscle of arm (TM) were detected by quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction(More)
