Anti-infection Peptidomics of Amphibian Skin *S
The general opinion that 20–30 different antimicrobial peptides can protect an animal can be doubted and the strong capability of innate immunity and molecular genetics of amphibian ecological diversification is considered.
Heterorhabditidoides chongmingensis gen. nov., sp. nov. (Rhabditida: Rhabditidae), a novel member of the entomopathogenic nematodes.
Identification of novel and salt-responsive miRNAs to explore miRNA-mediated regulatory network of salt stress response in radish (Raphanus sativus L.)
The results provide novel insight into complex miRNA-mediated regulatory network of salt stress response in radish, and facilitate further dissection of molecular mechanism underlying plant adaptive response to salt stress in root vegetable crops.
A new family of antimicrobial peptides from skin secretions of Rana pleuraden
Two antimicrobial and nematicidal peptides derived from sequences encoded Picea sitchensis
Two antimicrobial peptides derived from sequences encoded Picea sitchensis are identified and exerted strong nematicidal activities against Caenorhabditis elegans and had weak hemolytic abilities against human and rabbit red cells.
Oscheius microvilli n. sp. (Nematoda: Rhabditidae): A Facultatively Pathogenic Nematode from Chongming Island, China
Phylogenetic trees of 18S rDNA and internal transcribed spacer indicate that the new species belongs to the insectivora group of the genus Oscheius; it is most closely related to O. myriophilus, and the two species can be distinguished on the basis of their different body length, morphological features of the bursa, and molecular data.

Ranakinin‐N is the first reported bradykinin‐like peptide with a neutral net charge at the N‐terminus, and is structurally related to bradykinsin‐ like peptides identified from skin secretions of other amphibians.
Molecular Phylogeny of Geographical Isolates of Bursaphelenchus xylophilus: Implications on the Origin and Spread of this Species in China and Worldwide.
The phylogenetic analysis indicated that Chinese isolates share a common ancestor with one of the two Japanese clades and that the Canadian isolates form a sister group of the clade comprised of isolates from China, Portugal, Japan, and the US, which suggests that B. xylophilus originated in North America.
Exome sequencing identifies mutations in ABCD1 and DACH2 in two brothers with a distinct phenotype
The distinct phenotype demonstrated by these two brothers might represent a new form of ALD or a new syndrome, and the combination of mutations in ABCD1 and DACH2 provides a plausible mechanism for this phenotype.
