Tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase 3 (TIMP3) played a key role in female reproduction. However, its expression and function in goat are still unclear. In the present study, the full-length cDNA of goat TIMP3 was cloned from adult goat ovary; meanwhile, we demonstrated that putative TIMP3 protein shared a highly conserved amino acid sequence with known(More)
BACKGROUND MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are short, highly conserved small noncoding RNAs that had fundamental roles in post-transcriptional gene expression, and they are crucial for proper control of biological processes and known to participate in embryo implantation. However, miRNA expression profiles in the pre-receptive and receptive phases of the goat(More)
Ovarian-specific promoter (OSP) is a tissue-specific promoter only expressed in the ovary to regulate its development. To investigate the activity of OSP in diverse dairy goat cells, OSP was cloned from dairy goat genome and used to construct the luciferase reporter vector pGL3-OSP to examine the transcriptional activity of OSP. Consequently, a 461-bp OSP(More)
Tissue inhibitors of metalloproteinases (TIMPs) are associated with several reproductive processes, such as mammalian follicular growth, ovulation, CL formation, and embryonic development. However, the expression and function of TIMPs in goat oviducts remain unclear. This work aimed to identify TIMP1 and TIMP3 expression in the goat oviduct during the(More)
Antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) are highly associated with antipathogenic activity, without generating drug resistance in targeted bacteria. In this study, the existence of AMPs in the Tibetan swine, a China-native, cold-resistant and seldom-sick breed of pig, was investigated. A peptide secreted by a Tibetan swine intestinal tract-derived Bacillus strain was(More)
According to the newest version of NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines for Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC), increasing attentions are paid to the role of nodal status and other high-risk factors, including vascular invasion, wedge resection, tumors > 4 cm, visceral pleural involvement, and incomplete lymph node sampling in the individual clinical(More)
X-linked inhibitor of apoptosis protein (XIAP), an endogenous of inhibitor of caspases, plays crucial roles in regulating ovarian granulosa cell apoptosis during follicular atresia. The aim of the present study was to determine the presence and localization of XIAP in the goat ovary and its expression level during follicular development. The full length(More)
In this study, we cloned the full coding region of NGF gene from the caprine ovary. Result showed the caprine NGF cDNA (GenBank Accession No. JQ308184) contained a 726 bp open reading frame encoding a protein with 241 amino acid residues. Bioinformatic analysis indicated that caprine NGF amino acid sequence was 83–99 % identical to that of mouse, pig, dog,(More)
