Hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF) is a master regulator that mediates major changes in gene expression under hypoxic conditions. Though HIF family has been identified in many organisms, little is known about this family in schizothoracine fish. Duplicated hif-α (hif-1αA, hif-1αB, hif-2αA, and hif-2αB) genes were identified in schizothoracine fish. All the(More)
This study was designed to express the onion fructosyltransferase by Escherichia coli DH5alpha, and obtain the optimal conditions of FST-1 activity. Thereby, fructosyltransferase gene was obtained by RT-PCR from onion in this experiment, and named FST-1. The expressed proteins were analyzed by SDS-PAGE. FST-1 activity was identified by the high performance(More)
The study had mainly investigated the synthesis of sucrose-6-acetate (s-6-a) in fructosyltransferase action. The synthesis reaction of s-6-a was performed between sucrose and glucose-6-acetate (g-6-a), and identified by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). According to the reaction of s-6-a catalyzed by fructosyltransferase from Aspergillus(More)
The Clarias fuscus is an important economic fish in China and distributed widely in south China, e.g. Yangtze river, Pearl River, and Min River, even Hainan island. It is also distributed in Southeast Asia and Africa, so it is a good model for study population genetics and geological changes of these region. In this study, the complete mitochondrial genome(More)
Tibetan Plateau (TP) had experienced phased uplift, resulting in inhospitable environment of low temperature, hypoxia and high ultraviolet radiation for Tibetan wildlife. Many organisms can well adapt to TP, it is of ecological and evolutionary interest to untangle how organisms adapt to extreme environment on TP through evolution. Previous studies mainly(More)
One of the most important events in vertebrate evolutionary history is the water-to-land transition, during which some morphological and physiological changes occurred in concert with the loss of specific genes in tetrapods. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying this transition have not been well explored. To explore vertebrate adaptation to(More)
Short interspersed elements (SINEs) are moderately repetitive DNA sequences in eukaryotic genomes. Although eukaryotic genomes contain numerous SINEs copy, it is very difficult and laborious to isolate and identify them by the reported methods. In this study, the inverse PCR was successfully applied to isolate SINEs from Opsariichthys bidens genome in(More)
The Yangtze River is the longest river in China and is divided into upstream and mid-downstream regions by the Three Gorges (the natural barriers of the Yangtze River), resulting in a complex distribution of fish. Dramatic changes to habitat environments may ultimately threaten fish survival; thus, it is necessary to evaluate the genetic diversity and(More)
The fructosyltransferase gene was isolated and cloned from Aspergillus oryzae. The gene was 1368 bp, which encoded a protein of 455 amino acids. To analyze the activity of the expressed fructosyltransferase, the pET32a-fructosyltransferase recombined plasmid was transformed into Escherichia coli BL21. The fructosyltransferase gene was successfully expressed(More)
The clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPRs) and their associated proteins (Cas) belong to the crucial adaptive immune system, which exist in archaea and bacteria. Currently, CRISPR-Cas9 system has been modified and widely used to edit genome. In this review, we summarized the discovery, classification and mechanism of CRISPR-Cas(More)
