INTRODUCTION Although P2Y12 has a significant role in normal hemostasis and thrombosis, no genetic study has been described about the association between P2Y12 variants and the extent of ADP-induced platelet activation in the Korean population. MATERIALS AND METHODS The expression levels of two reference sequences of P2Y12 mRNA transcripts (variants 1 and(More)
POU5F1 and NANOG play important roles in the maintenance of embryonic stem cell pluripotency. Recently, we isolated cat embryonic stem (ES)-like cells from cat blastocysts generated in vivo. In an effort to identify genetic markers for the characterization of cat ES-like cells, we have determined the coding sequences (CDSs) of cat POU5F1 (cPOU5F1) and NANOG(More)
Prolonged accumulation of misfolded or unfolded proteins caused by cellular stress, including oxidative stress, induces endoplasmic reticulum stress, which then activates an unfolded protein response (UPR). ER stress is usually maintained at higher levels in cancer cells as compared to normal cells due to altered metabolism in cancer. Here, we investigated(More)
Most reproductive traits have low heritability and are greatly affected by environmental factors. Teat number and litter size are traits related to the reproduction ability of pigs. To identify quantitative trait loci (QTLs) for teat number traits, a genome-wide association study (GWAS) was conducted using an F2 intercross between Landrace and Korean native(More)
Clinical-chemical traits are essential when examining the health status of individuals. The aim of this study was to identify quantitative trait loci (QTL) and the associated positional candidate genes affecting clinical-chemical traits in a reciprocal F(2) intercross between Landrace and Korean native pigs. Following an overnight fast, 25 serum phenotypes(More)
We conducted a genome-wide linkage analysis to identify quantitative trait loci (QTL) that influence meat quality-related traits in a large F2 intercross between Landrace and Korean native pigs. Thirteen meat quality-related traits of the m. longissimus lumborum et thoracis were measured in more than 830 F2 progeny. All these animals were genotyped with 173(More)
Serum Ca++ levels play important roles in the humoral immunity. The aim of this study was to detect quantitative trait loci and the associated positional candidate genes affecting baseline serum Ca++ concentrations. A genome-wide association study was conducted in an F2 intercross population between Landrace and Korean native pigs using the porcine single(More)
Fibroblast growth factor receptor 2 is a member of receptor tyrosine kinase family, and fibroblast growth factor receptor 2 gene amplification or missense mutation has been observed in various human cancers, including gastric carcinoma. Recent studies have shown that anti-fibroblast growth factor receptor 2 agents inhibit tumor progression in various human(More)
