The small ubiquitin-related modifier-1 (SUMO-1) is a member of a family of ubiquitin-related proteins. SUMO pathway, which is involved in gene expression in eukaryotic posttranslational processing, plays important roles in gene expression, genomic stability and the occurrence of cells, development and other biological processes. Scylla paramamosain is one(More)
A total of 5160 high quality ESTs (expressed sequence tags) averaging 357 bp were collected from normalized cDNA libraries created from testis, ovary and mixed organs of mud crab Scylla paramamosain. Clustering and assembly of these ESTs resulted in a total of 3837 unique sequences with 576 overlapping contigs and 3261 singletons. Comparisons with the(More)
Sox genes play important roles in various developmental processes such as sex determination, embryogenesis, oogenesis, neurogenesis, and larval development. In order to clarify the roles of Sox genes in the developmental process of large yellow croaker, the full-length cDNA of the Sox11a gene (Lc-Sox11a) was cloned for the first time. Bioinformatics(More)
The biological activity of estrogens in target organs is mainly mediated by estrogen receptors (ERs). Herein, we addressed the isolation and expression analysis of three nuclear estrogen receptors, namely LcERα, LcERβ1, and LcERβ2 from Larimichthys crocea by means of SMART-RACE, qRT-PCR, and in situ hybridization. Results in different tissues showed that(More)
VASA is one of the important regulatory factors that determine the development of the reproductive system. However, no information on vasa gene from Pleocyemata Brachyura is available. By using Race, we obtained a full-length cDNA of Sp-vasa of the green mud crab Scylla paramamosain. The full-length (2,851 bp) cDNA of vasa encodes a peptide of 631 amino(More)
The maturation promoting factor (MPF) is a key regulator of controlling G2/M phase transition in the meiotic maturation of oocyte and spermatocyte in animals, which is a complex of CDC2 (CDK1) and cyclin B. To better understand the molecular mechanism of oocyte and spermatocyte maturation in mud crab (Scylla paramamosain), the full length cDNA of cdc2(More)
Large yellow croaker (Larimichthys crocea) is one of the most valuable marine fish in southern China. Given to the rapid development of aquaculture industry, the L. crocea was subjected to ciliate ectoparasite Cryptocaryon irritans. It therefore is indispensable and urgent to understand the mechanism of L. crocea host defense against C. irritans infection.(More)
As one of transcription factors and pluripotency factors, Klf4 plays a crucial role in regulation of cellular processes. In this article, we characterized Klf4 of large yellow croaker (Lc-Klf4), which encodes a 452-amino acid protein (Lc-Klf4) with three highly conserved C2H2 zinc fingers. Lc-Klf4 shares high conservative functions in teleosts with the(More)
Androgens mediate a wide range of physiological responses and developmental processes in vertebrates, involving both reproductive and nonreproductive systems. The activity of androgens is mediated by the androgen receptor (AR), a member of the nuclear receptor superfamily. In this study, an AR gene was cloned from the large yellow croaker (Larimichthys(More)
cMyc is a vital transcription factor that involves in the regulation of cell proliferation, growth, differentiation, and apoptosis. In the present study, cMyc in Larimichthys crocea (Lc-cMyc) was cloned and analyzed for investigating its function. The full-length cDNA of Lc-cMyc was 2089 bp encoding a 440-amino-acid protein (Lc-cMyc). Lc-cMyc had the(More)
