Gene-derived markers are pivotal to the analysis of genome structure, organization, and evolution and necessary for comparative genomics. However, gene-derived markers are relatively difficult to develop. This project utilized the genomic resources of channel catfish expressed sequence tags (ESTs) to identify simple sequence repeats (SSRs), or(More)
Ribosomal protein (RP) genes have become widely used as markers for phylogenetic studies and comparative genomics. However, they have not been available for evolutionary studies in fish although teleosts are the largest group of vertebrates with more than 23,000 species. Using a transcriptomic approach, we have cloned and sequenced 32 40S RP complementary(More)
EST sequencing is one of the most efficient means for gene discovery and molecular marker development, and can be additionally utilized in both comparative genome analysis and evaluation of gene duplications. While much progress has been made in catfish genomics, large-scale EST resources have been lacking. The objectives of this project were to construct(More)
Ribosomal protein genes have become widely used as markers for phylogenetic studies and comparative genomics, but they have not been available in fish. We have cloned and sequenced a complete set of all 47 60S ribosomal protein cDNAs from channel catfish (Ictalurus punctatus), of which 43 included the complete protein encoding regions. Most ribosomal(More)
In insects, sensory neuron membrane proteins (SNMPs) are critical peripheral olfactory proteins and highly promote the sensitivity of pheromone detection. In this study, we cloned an SNMP transcript (CpomSNMP2, GenBank KU302714) from the antennae of the codling moth Cydia pomonella (L.) Its open reading frame is 1,575 bp and it encodes a protein with 524(More)
Biotransformation enzymes are found in insect antennae and play a critical role in degrading xenobiotics and odorants. In Cydia pomonella, we identified 26 biotransformation enzymes. Among these enzymes, twelve carboxylesterases (CXEs), two aldehyde oxidases (AOXs) and six alcohol dehydrogenases (ADs) were predominantly expressed in antennae. Each of the(More)
Previous molecular genetic studies on channel catfish (Ictalurus punctatus) have focused on limited number of genes and gene products. Recent advancement of molecular techniques made high throughput analysis of transcriptomes possible. As part of our transcriptome analysis of channel catfish, we have analyzed 1909 expressed sequence tags (ESTs) derived from(More)
