Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) play roles in almost all biological processes; however, their function and profile in skin development and pigmentation is less understood. In addition, because lncRNAs are species-specific, their function in goats has not been established. We systematically identified lncRNAs in 100-day-old fetal skin by deep RNA-sequencing(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are highly conserved, short non-coding RNAs that regulate gene expression at the posttranscriptional level. Although many miRNAs are identified in muscles and muscle cells, their individual roles are still not fully understood. In the present study, we investigated a muscle highly-expressed miRNA, miR-127-3p, in C2C12 myoblasts and(More)
The Youzhou dark goat is the natural mutant characterizing the dark skin of whole body including the visible mucous membranes. In the present study, we characterized 100-day-old fetal skin at the histomorphological and transcriptomic levels in dark-skinned (Youzhou Dark goat) and white-skinned (Yudong White goat) goats using deep RNA-sequencing, qPCR, and(More)
