Molecular cloning, characterization and expression profiles of multiple leptin genes and a leptin receptor gene in orange-spotted grouper (Epinephelus coioides).
TLDR
GLepA, other than gLepB, functioned in the regulation of energy metabolism and food intake in this Perciform fish, and strong conservation of tertiary structure with that of other vertebrates was found. Expand
Genetic Variations in Two Seahorse Species (Hippocampus mohnikei and Hippocampus trimaculatus): Evidence for Middle Pleistocene Population Expansion
TLDR
The star-like pattern median-joining network of cytb and CR markers indicated a previous demographic expansion of H. mohnikei and H. trimaculatus, indicating a possible signature of genetic variation and population expansion in two seahorses under complex marine environments. Expand
The mitochondrial genome of a sea anemone Bolocera sp. exhibits novel genetic structures potentially involved in adaptation to the deep‐sea environment
TLDR
The mitogenome of a deep‐sea sea anemone was sequenced and characterized and it was deduced that these novel gene features may influence the activity of mitochondria, one of the most important organelles on earth. Expand
Sexual Dimorphism of Steroidogenesis Regulated by GnIH in the Goldfish, Carassius auratus1
TLDR
GnIH may contribute to the sexual dimorphism of steroidogenesis in goldfish and is suggested to have a putative function in the gonad. Expand
Differential expression analysis of nuclear oligomerization domain proteins NOD1 and NOD2 in orange-spotted grouper (Epinephelus coioides).
TLDR
Grouper NOD1 and NOD2 signal transduction was involved in grouper innate immune protection against bacterial and viral infections, and may exert different effects on the eradication of bacteria and virus. Expand
Genomic structure and expression pattern of MHC IIα and IIβ genes reveal an unusual immune trait in lined seahorse Hippocampus erectus.
TLDR
Results indicate that apart from TK, Gi and In, MU and BP play an important role in the immune response against pathogens in the seahorse, and high allelic variation and strong positive selection in PBR and relative higher expression inMU and BP are speculated to partly compensate for the immunodeficiency. Expand
The leptin system and its expression at different nutritional and pregnant stages in lined seahorse (Hippocampus erectus)
TLDR
In conclusion, the leptin system plays a role in the energy metabolism and food intake, and might provide new insights into molecular regulation of male pregnancy in seahorse. Expand
The seahorse genome and the evolution of its specialized morphology
TLDR
The sequencing and de novo assembly of the genome of the tiger tail seahorse, Hippocampus comes is reported and it is found that the H. comes genome lacks enamel matrix protein-coding proline/glutamine-rich secretory calcium-binding phosphoprotein genes, which might have led to the loss of mineralized teeth. Expand
Draft genome of the lined seahorse, Hippocampus erectus
TLDR
Generated genomic data are going to enrich genome resource of this economically important fish, and also provide insights into the genetic mechanisms of its iconic morphology and male pregnancy behavior. Expand
Optofluidic realization and retaining of cell–cell contact using an abrupt tapered optical fibre
TLDR
An optofluidic method is reported for realization and retaining of Escherichia coli cell–cell contact in a microfluidic channel using an abrupt tapered optical fibre to show the ability as bio-optical waveguides. Expand
