The Sinocyclocheilus cavefish genome provides insights into cave adaptation
As the first report on cavefish genomes among distinct species in Sinocyclocheilus, this work provides not only insights into genetic mechanisms of cave adaptation, but also represents a fundamental resource for a better understanding of cavefish biology.
Mudskipper genomes provide insights into the terrestrial adaptation of amphibious fishes
Mudskippers are amphibious fishes that have developed morphological and physiological adaptations to match their unique lifestyles. Here we perform whole-genome sequencing of four representative…
The Asian arowana (Scleropages formosus) genome provides new insights into the evolution of an early lineage of teleosts
A potential heterogametic sex chromosome is identified in the female arowana karyotype, suggesting that the sex is determined by a ZW/ZZ sex chromosomal system, and differential gene expression among three varieties provides insights into the genetic basis of colour variation.
High-throughput identification of novel conotoxins from the Chinese tubular cone snail (Conus betulinus) by multi-transcriptome sequencing
Variation in conopeptides from different specimens of C. betulinus was observed, which suggested the presence of intraspecific variability in toxin production at the genetic level, and provide a potentially fertile resource for the development of new pharmaceuticals, and a pathway for the discovery of new conotoxins.
High-quality genome assembly of channel catfish, Ictalurus punctatus
A high-quality genome assembly for a channel catfish from a breeding stock inbred in China for more than three generations, which was originally imported to China from North America is reported, which is comparable to a recent report of the “Coco”Channel catfish.
Mitochondrial genome sequencing of a vermivorous cone snail Conus quercinus supports the correlative analysis between phylogenetic relationships and dietary types of Conus species
Improved understanding of the mitogenomic structure and evolutionary status of the vermivorous C. quercinus is improved, which support the putative hypothesis that the Conus ancestor was vermavorous.
Cone Snails: A Big Store of Conotoxins for Novel Drug Discovery
The genus Conus, the big family of cone snails, has become an important genetic resource for conotoxin identification and drug development and functional predictions and investigations are making great progress in promoting the discovery of novel drugs.
High Throughput Identification of Novel Conotoxins from the Vermivorous Oak Cone Snail (Conus quercinus) by Transcriptome Sequencing
Various organs of the vermivorous Oak cone snail have different conotoxins with high diversity, suggesting greater contributions from several organs to the high-throughput discovery of new conotoxin sequences for future drug development.
De novo assembly and comparative transcriptome analysis of the foot from Chinese green mussel (Perna viridis) in response to cadmium stimulation
It is reached a primary conclusion that high content of tyrosine (Tyr), cysteine (Cys), histidine (His) residues or the special motif plays an important role in the accumulation of heavy metals in byssus.
High-Throughput Identification and Analysis of Novel Conotoxins from Three Vermivorous Cone Snails by Transcriptome Sequencing
High-throughput transcriptome sequencing was performed to extract and analyze putative conotoxin transcripts from the venom ducts of 3 vermivorous cone snails, and numerous functional proteins with potential involvement in the biosynthesis, modification, and delivery process of conotoxins were identified.
