Using the serial analysis of gene expression technique, we surveyed transcriptomes of three major tissues (panicles, leaves, and roots) of a super-hybrid rice (Oryza sativa) strain, LYP9, in comparison to its parental cultivars, 93-11 (indica) and PA64s (japonica). We acquired 465,679 tags from the serial analysis of gene expression libraries, which were(More)
The biological effect of radiofrequency (RF) fields remains controversial. We address this issue by examining whether RF fields can cause changes in gene expression. We used the pulsed RF fields at a frequency of 2.45 GHz that is commonly used in telecommunication to expose cultured human HL-60 cells. We used the serial analysis of gene expression (SAGE)(More)
The number of genes in the human genome is still a controversial issue. Whereas most of the genes in the human genome are said to have been physically or computationally identified, many short cDNA sequences identified as tags by use of serial analysis of gene expression (SAGE) do not match these genes. By performing experimental verification of more than(More)
Serial analysis of gene expression (SAGE) is a powerful technique for genome-wide analysis of gene expression. However, two-thirds of SAGE tags cannot be used directly for gene identification for two reasons. First, many SAGE tags match several known expressed sequences, owing to the short length of SAGE tag sequences. Second, many SAGE tags do not match(More)
SAGE (serial analysis of gene expression) is a remarkable technique for genome-wide analysis of gene expression. It is crucial to understand the extent to which SAGE can accurately indicate a gene or expressed sequence tag (EST) with a single tag. We analyzed the effect of the size of SAGE tag on gene identification. Our observation indicates that SAGE tags(More)
In an attempt to characterize early B cell development including the commitment of progenitor cells to the B cell lineage, we generated and compared genomewide gene expression profiles of human hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) and pre-B cells (PBCs) by using serial analysis of gene expression. From more than 100,000 serial analysis of gene expression tags(More)
Increasing evidence suggests that low-abundant transcripts may play fundamental roles in biological processes. In an attempt to estimate the prevalence of low-abundant transcripts in eukaryotic genomes, we performed a transcriptome analysis in Drosophila using the SAGE technique. We collected 244,313 SAGE tags from transcripts expressed in Drosophila(More)
Mind bomb (Mib) facilitates Notch signaling pathway by promoting the endocytosis of Notch ligand. The zebrafish mib ta52b mutant has a defect in its ubiquitin ligase activity which is necessary to inhibit the neurogenesis, resulting in a neuronal hyperplasia. Several genes regulated in the mib ta52b mutant have been well established, however, there were(More)
Epithelial appendages on palatal rugae develop during mouse palatogenesis through epithelial thickening and pattern formation. Recently, the patterned formation of nine rugae was observed together with the specific expression patterns of Shh in rodents. However, no crucial evidence was found for a direct association between Shh expression and the distinct(More)
Palatal development is one of the critical events in craniofacial morphogenesis. During fusion of the palatal shelves, removal of the midline epithelial seam (MES) is a fundamental process for achieving proper morphogenesis of the palate. The reported mechanisms for removing the MES are the processes of apoptosis, migration or general(More)
