The quantity, quality, and distribution of eumelanin and pheomelanin determine a wide variety of coat colors in animals. Three coat color variants exist in farmed wild-type Chinese raccoon dog (Nyctereutes procyonoides procyonoides), which is an important fur-bearing animal species. The ASIP gene is an important candidate gene for coat color variation in(More)
The Chinese raccoon dog (Nyctereutes procyonoides procyonoides) is one of the most important fur-bearing animal species. The dominant white individual, a coat color variant in farmed Chinese raccoon dog, shows a completely white phenotype over the entire body. The KIT and EDNRB genes have been reported to be associated with the dominant white coat color in(More)
A simple and efficient synthesis of fused morpholine pyrrolidine/piperdine core structures was accomplished via a Petasis-borono Mannich reaction of cyclic amino alcohols, glyoxal and arylboronic acids with moderate to good yields. The bioassay data showed that the synthesized compounds displayed selective insecticidal activities against armyworm and(More)
The blue fox (Alopex lagopus), a coat-color variant of the Arctic fox, is a domesticated fur-bearing mammal. In the present study, transcriptome data generated from a pool of nine different tissues were obtained with Illumina HiSeq2500 paired-end sequencing technology. After filtering from raw reads, 32,358,290 clean reads were assembled into 161,269(More)
Amelogenin is a major protein of the developing enamel matrix. There are two amelogenin genes (AMELX and AMELY) located on the X and Y chromosomes, respectively, in dogs. In the present study, we characterized full-length cDNAs and alternative splicing patterns of the AMEL genes in the tooth tissue of a dog by 5'- and 3'-rapid amplification of cDNA ends and(More)
