Molecular characterization of gonad‐inhibiting hormone of Penaeus monodon and elucidation of its inhibitory role in vitellogenin expression by RNA interference
One of the important peptide hormones that control reproduction in crustaceans is gonad‐inhibiting hormone (GIH). GIH is known to modulate gonad maturation by inhibiting synthesis of vitellogeninExpand

Characterization of Argonaute cDNA from Penaeus monodon and implication of its role in RNA interference.
RNA interference (RNAi) has recently become a promising strategy for therapeutic of several viral diseases including those in the black tiger shrimp Penaeus monodon. However, the protein componentsExpand

Molecular and biological characterization of molt-inhibiting hormone of Penaeus monodon
The action of molt-inhibiting hormone (MIH) on the inhibition of ecdysone release from the Y-organ of decapod crustacean keeps the animal in the intermolt stage that dominates its molting cycle. MIHExpand

Molecular cloning of a cDNA encoding a member of CHH/MIH/GIH family from Penaeus monodon and analysis of its gene structure.
We report the nucleotide and deduced amino acid sequences of Pem-CMG peptide, a member of crustacean CHH/MIH/GIH peptide family, in black tiger prawn (Penaeus monodon). The 5′ and 3′ fragments ofExpand

Double-stranded RNA confers both preventive and therapeutic effects against Penaeus stylirostris densovirus (PstDNV) in Litopenaeus vannamei.
Penaeus stylirostris densovirus (PstDNV) infection is found widespread in peneaid shrimp, especially in economically important species such as black tiger shrimp Penaeus monodon and Pacific whiteExpand

Silencing of gonad-inhibiting hormone gene expression in Penaeus monodon by feeding with GIH dsRNA-enriched Artemia
Abstract In penaeid shrimp, RNA interference technology was successfully applied to inhibit viral replication as well as to silence shrimp endogenous genes. Our previous study showed thatExpand

Secretion of Pem-CMG, a peptide in the CHH/MIH/GIH family of Penaeus monodon, in Pichia pastoris is directed by secretion signal of the alpha-mating factor from Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
The CHH/MIH/GIH peptide family of black tiger prawn (Paneaus monodon) is important in shrimp reproduction and growth enhancement. In this study, the cDNA that encodes the complete peptide that isExpand

Induction of Ovarian Maturation and Spawning in Penaeus monodon Broodstock by Double-Stranded RNA
Ovarian maturation in crustacean is under the control of gonad-inhibiting hormone (GIH); a neuropeptide secreted from X-organ sinus gland complex in eyestalks. Unilateral eyestalk ablation thatExpand

Functional characterization of recombinant gonad-inhibiting hormone (GIH) and implication of antibody neutralization on induction of ovarian maturation in marine shrimp
Ovarian maturation in crustacean is controlled by an eyestalk neuropeptide called gonad-inhibiting hormone (GIH) that is presumed to inhibit vitellogenin synthesis. In this study, a recombinantExpand

Molecular cloning and functional characterization of Argonaute-3 gene from Penaeus monodon.
Argonaute (Ago) proteins play a crucial role in the shrimp RNA interference pathway. In this study, we identified and characterized a novel Ago gene from black tiger shrimp, Penaeus monodon. TheExpand
