Green fluorescent protein (GFP) is a popular qualitative reporter protein used to study different aspects of plant biology. However, to be used as a reliable quantitative reporter in expression studies using fluorescence based assays, methods to eliminate interfering endogenous molecules must be considered. Therefore, a standard curve based solid phase(More)
TLRs represent one of the most important components of innate immunity. Currently, these receptors have been extensively studied in vertebrates and insects, but our knowledge for annelids is very limited. Therefore, the aim of our study was to identify earthworm TLR homologs by genome-wide screening, and to determine the expression of candidate genes as a(More)
BACKGROUND Sperm DNA is protected against fragmentation by a high degree of chromatin packaging. It has been demonstrated that proper chromatin packaging is important for boar fertility outcome. However, little is known about the molecular mechanisms underlying differences in sperm DNA fragmentation. Knowledge of sequence variation influencing this sperm(More)
