Autophagy is a cellular recycling program that retards ageing by efficiently eliminating damaged and potentially harmful organelles and intracellular protein aggregates. Here, we show that the abundance of phosphatidylethanolamine (PE) positively regulates autophagy. Reduction of intracellular PE levels by knocking out either of the two yeast(More)
The polymorphisms of LEPR and MC4R genes are involved in appetite control mechanisms and indirectly associated with level of fat content in pig carcasses. Therefore, the aim of our study was to determine if both polymorphisms have an effect on components of colostrum and milk of sows. In our study we used gilts of two Polish breeds: Polish Landrace and(More)
Anatomical proportions are robustly maintained in individuals that vary enormously in size, both within a species and between members of related taxa. However, the mechanisms underlying scaling are still poorly understood. We have examined this phenomenon in the context of the patterning of the ventral neural tube in response to a gradient of the morphogen(More)
