Pro12Ala Polymorphism in the PPARG Gene Contributes to the Development of Diabetic Nephropathy in Chinese Type 2 Diabetic Patients
OBJECTIVE Oxidative stress is a major contributing factor in the development of diabetic nephropathy. Peroxisome proliferator–activated receptor γ heterozygous mice and Pro12Ala polymorphism in PPARGExpand
Two New Diophrys‐Like Genera and Their Type Species, Apodiophrys ovalis n. g., n. sp. and Heterodiophrys zhui n. g., n. sp. (Ciliophora: Euplotida), with Notes on Their Molecular Phylogeny
ABSTRACT. Based on both morphological and molecular information, two new euplotid genera Apodiophrys n. g. and Heterodiophrys n. g. are described in the present paper. Apodiophrys n. g. is defined asExpand
Target gene enrichment in the cyclophyllidean cestodes, the most diverse group of tapeworms
The Cyclophyllidea is the most diverse order of tapeworms, encompassing species that infect all classes of terrestrial tetrapods including humans and domesticated animals. Available phylogeneticExpand
Morphology, ontogeny, and molecular phylogeny of two novel bakuellid-like hypotrichs (Ciliophora: Hypotrichia), with establishment of two new genera.
The morphology, ontogeny and molecular phylogeny of Apobakuella fusca gen. n., sp. n. and Parabistichella variabilis gen. n., sp. n., from south China were investigated. Apobakuella fusca, brownExpand
Disturbance of hippocampal H2S generation contributes to CUMS-induced depression-like behavior: involvement in endoplasmic reticulum stress of hippocampus.
The chronic unpredictable mild stress (CUMS) model is a widely used experimental model of depression. Exogenous stress-induced neuronal cell death in the hippocampus is closely associated with theExpand
Morphology and Molecular Phylogeny of Two New Marine Euplotids, Pseudodiophrys nigricans n. g., n. sp., and Paradiophrys zhangi n. sp. (Ciliophora: Euplotida)
ABSTRACT. The morphology, infraciliature, and molecular phylogeny of Pseudodiophrys nigricans n. g., n. sp., and Paradiophrys zhangi n. sp., isolated from a sandy beach near Qingdao, China, wereExpand
Molecular systematics and phylogenetic analysis of the Asian endemic freshwater sleepers (Gobiiformes: Odontobutidae).
The Odontobutidae is a group of freshwater sleepers endemic to East and Southeast Asia. The composition of the Odontobutidae is controversial and the systematics position of some species (e.g.Expand
Gene markers for exon capture and phylogenomics in ray‐finned fishes
Abstract Gene capture coupled with the next‐generation sequencing has become one of the preferred methods of subsampling genomes for phylogenomic studies. Many exon markers have been developed inExpand
Morphology and SSU rRNA gene-based phylogeny of two marine Euplotes species, E. orientalis spec. nov. and E. raikovi (Ciliophora, Euplotida).
The living morphology, infraciliature and silverline system of two small marine Euplotes species, E. orientalis spec. nov. and E. raikoviAgamaliev, 1966, isolated from a sandy beach near Qingdao,Expand
Diversity of free-living marine ciliates (Alveolata, Ciliophora): Faunal studies in coastal waters of China during the years 2011-2016.
In the period 2011-2016, a series of investigations were carried out on the marine and brackish free-living ciliate fauna of the temperate-tropical coastal waters of China. About 210 morphotypesExpand
