Genetic characterization of northern snakehead (Channa argus) populations in China using microsatellite markers
TLDR
Five variable microsatellite loci were used to investigate genetic characterization of northern snakehead populations in China and indicated that the eight populations could be divided into five major clusters, useful for the evaluation and conservation of the northern snakeheads.
Molecular characterization and expression analysis of chitinase from the pearl oyster Pinctada fucata.
TLDR
This study is the first to report the potential biomineralization function of a chitinase in P. fucata, and indicates a possible association with the formation of prodissoconch shells.
Identification of twenty novel polymorphic microsatellite DNA markers from transcripts of the pearl oyster Pinctada fucata using next-generation sequencing approach
TLDR
The pearl oyster, Pinctada fucata, is a commercially important marine shellfish cultured for producing saltwater pearls mainly in China and Japan, and accounting for over 90% production of the total marine pearls produced in China.
Highly expressed EGFR in pearl sac may facilitate the pearl formation in the pearl oyster, Pinctada fucata.
TLDR
Results indicated that the Pf-EGFR may facilitate pearl formation as well as larval metamorphosis.
Characterization of transcriptome and identification of biomineralization genes in winged pearl oyster (Pteria penguin) mantle tissue.
The winged pearl oyster Pteria penguin is a commercially important marine pearl oyster species, with pearls that are quite different from those of other pearl oysters. Among such species, mantle
Differential Gene Expression during Larval Metamorphic Development in the Pearl Oyster, Pinctada fucata, Based on Transcriptome Analysis
TLDR
To study the molecular driving force behind metamorphic development in larvae of P. fucata, transcriptomes of five larval stages were sequenced using an Illumina HiSeq™ 2000 system and assembled and characterized with the transcripts of six tissues.
Genomic structure of the α-amylase gene in the pearl oyster Pinctada fucata and its expression in response to salinity and food concentration.
TLDR
The cDNA, genomic DNA, and promoter region of the α-amylase gene of the pearl oyster Pinctada fucata were cloned by using reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR), rapid amplification of cDNA ends, and genome-walking methods to provide a genetic basis for further research on Pfamy activity.
Expression, Purification, and Functional Activity of Shell Matrix Protein Pearlin from the Pearl Oyster Pinctada fucata
TLDR
The present study showed that the recombinant pearlin exerted functional effects similar to those of the natural protein, laying a foundation for large-scale production of pearlin in a prokaryotic system.
The complete mitochondrial genome of the hybrid grouper Epinephelus fuscoguttatus (♀)×Epinephelus lanceolatus (♂)
TLDR
The complete mitogenome of the hybrid E. fuscoguttatus ( ♀)×E.
A baseline study on lipid and fatty acid composition in the pearl oyster, Pinctada fucata
TLDR
It is suggested that visceral mass and mantle are the major tissues for P. fucata to store lipids and thus are important candidate tissues for lipidomic study.
