We generated the PEDE (Pig EST Data Explorer; http://pede.dna.affrc.go.jp/) database using sequences assembled from porcine 5' ESTs from oligo-capped full-length cDNA libraries. Thus far we have performed EST analysis of various organs (thymus, spleen, uterus, lung, liver, ovary and peripheral blood mononuclear cells) and assembled 68,076 high-quality(More)
We formerly released the porcine expressed sequence tag (EST) database Pig EST Data Explorer (PEDE; http://pede.dna.affrc.go.jp/), which comprised 68,076 high-quality ESTs obtained by using full-length-enriched cDNA libraries derived from seven tissues. We have added eight tissues and cell types to the EST analysis and have integrated 94,555 additional(More)
Reports have suggested that the two Notch ligands, Dll1 and Dll4, are indispensable to maintain the homeostasis of the intestinal epithelium. However, within the intestinal epithelium, the precise distribution of the cells that express those ligands at the protein level remains largely unknown. Here, we show a series of immunohistochemical analysis through(More)
The drivers of plant richness at fine spatial scales in steppe ecosystems are still not sufficiently understood. Our main research questions were: (i) How rich in plant species are the natural steppes of Southern Siberia compared to natural and semi-natural grasslands in other regions of the Palaearctic? (ii) What are the main environmental drivers of the(More)
A perovskite-type solar cell with a substrate size of 70 mm × 70 mm was fabricated by a simple spin-coating method using a mixed solution. The photovoltaic properties of the TiO2/CH3NH3PbI3-based photovoltaic devices were investigated by current density-voltage characteristic and incident photon to current conversion efficiency measurements. Their(More)
The data on the immunohistochemical analysis of conditional Notch ligand knockout mice is presented. Targeted deletion of Jag1, Dll1, Dll4, or Dll1 plus Dll4 in Lgr5+ve cells was induced by a Cre-mediated gene recombination, and differentiation or proliferation of the intestinal epithelial cells was examined by immunohistochemistry. These data are the(More)
Intestinal epithelial cells (IECs) play an indispensable role in maintaining body fluid balance partly through their ability to regulate anion/fluid secretion. Yet in various inflammatory gastrointestinal diseases, over-secretion of anions results in symptoms such as severe diarrhoea. Endogenous mediators, such as vasoactive intestinal peptide or(More)
DUR3 proteins mediate high-affinity transport of exogenous and endogenous urea. Although two DUR3-like genes (PyDUR3.1/3.2) have been identified in Pyropia yezoensis, a BLAST search using these sequences against the P. yezoensis EST database suggested the existence of another DUR3-like gene (PyDUR3.3). In this study, the PyDUR3.3 gene was isolated and(More)
