This study was conducted to detect polymorphisms in intron 1 of porcinePOU1F1 (POU domain, class 1, transcription factor1, Pit1, renamed asPOU1F1) by comparative sequencing. Within the intron, 23 sites of variation were identified, including 16 single-nucleotide substitutions, 4 single-nucleotide indels, 2 short (3-bp and 17-bp), and one long (313-bp)(More)
To examine whether or not the regulatory sequence of chicken ovalbumin gene can drive transgene expression specifically in hen oviduct, the authors constructed an oviduct-specific expression vector (pOV), containing 3.0 kilobases (kb) of the 5'-flanking sequence and 3.0 kb of the 3'-flanking sequence of the chicken ovalbumin gene.

The Sleeping Beauty (SB) transposon is a Tc1/mariner family transposon that has been transpositionally inactive for over 10 million years. The SB transposon system was awakened from inactive Tc1-like transposable elements by using molecular phylogenetic data in 1997. Recent studies on its transposition efficiency and mechanism have shown its broad(More)
Chinese Meishan and Jiangquhai pigs are two of the most prolific pigs in the world, but their growth rate is lower than that of Duroc, Landrace and Pietrain pigs. It is suggested that growth rate is regulated by growth hormone. The objective of the current study was to analyze the porcine growth hormone (pGH) gene polymorphisms based on the polymerase chain(More)
With the rapid improvement of sequencing techniques, more and more genome annotations reveal the transposons are the important components of most genomes and present on almost all organisms. Among them, the Tc1/Mariner superfamily represents the most widespread DNA transposons. Until now, fourteen active Tc1/Mariner transposons (Minos, Mos1, etc.) have been(More)
By PCR approach, exon4, exon5 and exon6 of POU1F1 gene of Landrace, Duroc, Yorkshire, Jiangquhai, Meishan, and w Xiangzhu are amplified, and PCR products contained exon 4,exon6 and the cloning product of exon5 were sequenced. The results showed that exon4 of POU1F1 gene had the Nla III polymorphisms characteristics, the mutation was T-->C. The sequences(More)
