Adaptive diversification of bitter taste receptor genes in Mammalian evolution.
The diversity and evolution of bitter taste perception in mammals is not well understood. Recent discoveries of bitter taste receptor (T2R) genes provide an opportunity for a genetic approach to thisExpand

Functional genomics of genes with small open reading frames (sORFs) in S. cerevisiae.
Genes with small open reading frames (sORFs; <100 amino acids) represent an untapped source of important biology. sORFs largely escaped analysis because they were difficult to predict computationallyExpand

The formation of tetraploid stocks of red crucian carp×common carp hybrids as an effect of interspecific hybridization
Abstract F 3 –F 8 hybrids of red crucian carp ( Carassius auratus red var.) (♀)×common carp ( Cyprinus carpio L.) (♂) were found to be allotetraploids by examining the numbers and karyotypes ofExpand

Adaptive Diversification of Vomeronasal Receptor 1 Genes in Rodents
The vomeronasal receptor 1 (V1R) are believed to be pheromone receptors in rodents. Here we used computational methods to identify 95 and 62 new putative V1R genes from the draft rat and mouse genomeExpand

Budding yeast PDS5 plays an important role in meiosis and is required for sister chromatid cohesion
Budding yeast PDS5 is an essential gene in mitosis and is required for chromosome condensation and sister chromatid cohesion. Here we report that PDS also is required in meiosis. Pds5p localizes onExpand

The Role of Bile Salt Export Pump Gene Repression in Drug-Induced Cholestatic Liver Toxicity
The bile salt export pump (BSEP, ABCB11) is predominantly responsible for the efflux of bile salts, and disruption of BSEP function is often associated with altered hepatic homeostasis of bile acidsExpand

The expression of AmphiTCTP, a TCTP orthologous gene in amphioxus related to the development of notochord and somites.
The translationally controlled tumor protein (TCTP) is highly conserved and has been widely found in eukaryotic organisms. Here, we report the phylogenetic analysis and developmental expression ofExpand

Whole-Genome Sequencing Identifies a Novel Variation of WAS Gene Coordinating With Heterozygous Germline Mutation of APC to Enhance Hepatoblastoma Oncogenesis
Hepatoblastoma (HB), a leading primary hepatic malignancy in children, originates from primitive hepatic stem cells. This study aimed to uncover the genetic variants that are responsible for HBExpand
