Phoenixin: A Newly Discovered Peptide with Multi-Functions.
Phoenixin (PNX), a newly identified peptide cleaved from the C-terminus of protein C4orf52, mainly exists in two active isoforms, phoenixin-14 (PNX-14) amide and phoenixin-20 (PNX-20) amide that wereExpand
Effect of the C-terminal domains and terminal residues of catalytic domain on enzymatic activity and thermostability of lichenase from Clostridium thermocellum
To elucidate the effects of C-terminal domains of LicMB (mature lichenase from Clostridium thermocellum) and terminal residues of LicMB-CD (catalytic domain of LicMB) on the properties of lichenase,Expand
Effect of active immunization against a recombinant mouse granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor/somatostatin fusion protein on the growth of mice
Female BALB/c mice were actively immunized subcutaneously with a recombinant protein of granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) fused with somatostatin (SS) (GM-CSF/SS). Fifty-fourExpand
Porcine genome engineering for xenotransplantation.
The extreme shortage of human donor organs for treatment of patients with end-stage organ failures is well known. Xenotransplantation, which might provide unlimited organ supply, is a most promisingExpand
Effect of immunization with a recombinant cholera toxin B subunit/somatostatin fusion protein on immune response and growth hormone levels in mice
Somatostatin (SS) is a hormone that inhibits growth hormone secretion. Cholera toxin B subunit (CTB) is a widely used adjuvant to improve the immunogenicity of co-administrated antigen. To block theExpand
Seasonal differences in the transcriptome profile of the Zhedong white goose (Anser cygnoides) pituitary gland.
In animals, the adaptation to breed at the time of greatest survival of the young is known as seasonal reproduction. This is mainly controlled by the photoperiod, which stimulates theExpand
Exploration of the temporal-spatial expression pattern and DNA methylation-related regulation of the duck telomerase reverse transcriptase gene.
Telomerase reverse transcriptase (TERT) is a catalytic subunit of telomerase that adds TTAGGG repeats to the 3'-overhang of telomeres. In the present study, we detected that the duck TERT (dTERT)Expand
Comparative Analysis of the Duodenum Microbial Communities of Zhedong White Goose (Anser cygnoides) at Different Reproductive Stages by High-Throughput Sequencing

Construction, expression and characterization of a single chain variable fragment antibody against human myostatin.
Myostatin plays negative roles in muscle development. To block the inhibitory effects of myostatin on myogenesis, a 759 bp single chain variable fragment antibody (scFv) against myostatin wasExpand
