miR-483-5p and miR-486-5p are down-regulated in cumulus cells of metaphase II oocytes from women with polycystic ovary syndrome.
The aim of this study was to compare the expression of microRNAs (miRNAs) in cumulus cells from polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and non-PCOS women. In the present study, miRNA expression profiles ofExpand
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
Silencing of LncRNA steroid receptor RNA activator attenuates polycystic ovary syndrome in mice.
BACKGROUND Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the most common endocrine disorder in women of reproductive age and has a prevalence of 1 in 15 women worldwide. This study aims to investigate the roleExpand
Polymorphisms of melatonin receptor genes and their associations with egg production traits in Shaoxing duck
Objective In birds, three types of melatonin receptors (MTNR1A, MTNR1B, and MTNR1C) have been cloned. Previous researches have showed that three melatonin receptors played an essential role inExpand
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
