Responses of Escherichia coli bacteria to two opposing chemoattractant gradients depend on the chemoreceptor ratio.
Escherichia coli chemotaxis has long served as a simple model of environmental signal processing, and bacterial responses to single chemical gradients are relatively well understood. Less is knownExpand

Genome-Wide Specific Selection in Three Domestic Sheep Breeds
Background Commercial sheep raised for mutton grow faster than traditional Chinese sheep breeds. Here, we aimed to evaluate genetic selection among three different types of sheep breed: twoExpand

Autocrine/Paracrine Human Growth Hormone-stimulated MicroRNA 96-182-183 Cluster Promotes Epithelial-Mesenchymal Transition and Invasion in Breast Cancer*
Background: hGH is an orthotopically expressed oncoprotein associated with mammary epithelial cell tumorigenesis. Results: The miR-96-182-183 cluster is regulated by autocrine/paracrine hGH andExpand

Induction of apoptosis in glioma cell lines by TRAIL/Apo-2l.
TRAIL/Apo-2L, a novel cytokine, is a member of the tumor necrosis factor (TNF) family and serves as an extracellular signal triggering apoptosis. TRAIL/Apo-2L is capable of killing variousExpand

Identification of MEF2B and TRHDE Gene Polymorphisms Related to Growth Traits in a New Ujumqin Sheep Population
2 SNPs were discovered in our previous genome-wide association study (GWAS): s58995.1 (rs420767326 A>G) in MEF2B gene and OAR3_115712045.1 (rs401775061 A>C) in TRHDE gene, which were significantlyExpand

Human growth hormone and human prolactin function as autocrine/paracrine promoters of progression of hepatocellular carcinoma
The death rates of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) are extremely high due to the paucity of therapeutic options. Animal models and anecdotal clinical evidence indicate a potential role of hGH and hPRLExpand

DNA methylation Landscape of body size variation in sheep
Sub-populations of Chinese Mongolian sheep exhibit significant variance in body mass. In the present study, we sequenced the whole genome DNA methylation in these breeds to detect whether DNAExpand

Measuring large lipid droplet sizes by probing restricted lipid diffusion effects with diffusion‐weighted MRS at 3T
Purpose The in vivo probing of restricted diffusion effects in large lipid droplets on a clinical MR scanner remains a major challenge due to the need for high b‐values and long diffusion times. ThisExpand

Effect of polymorphisms in the CAMKMT gene on growth traits in Ujumqin sheep.
Our previous genome-wide association study in sheep revealed that OAR3-84073899.1 (SNP31) in intron 8 of the CAMKMT gene was significantly associated with post-weaning gain at the genomic level.Expand
