Fibrinogen-related proteins (FREPs) are a family of proteins with high sequence diversity, and they play crucial roles in invertebrate immune response. However, few studies have characterized this diversity at the whole-genome level. In the present study, approximately 190 predicted FREPs with more than 200 fibrinogen-like (FBG) domains were identified in(More)
This paper considers Bayesian multiple testing under sparsity for polynomial-tailed distributions satisfying a monotone likelihood ratio property. Included in this class of distributions are the Student’s t, the Pareto, and many other distributions. We prove some general asymptotic optimality results under fixed and random thresholding. As examples of these(More)
Tumor necrosis factor receptor (TNFR)-associated factors (TRAFs) are a family of crucial adaptors, playing vital roles in mediating signal transduction in immune signaling pathways, including RIG-I-like receptor (RLR) signaling pathway. In the present study, a new TRAF family member (CgTRAF2) was identified in the Pacific oyster, Crassostrea gigas.(More)
OBJECTIVE In order to obtain high yield mutant strains for the industrial bioconversion of succinic acid, we analyzed the metabolic networks of the strain Actinobacillus succinogenes S.JST in the course of screening and breeding. METHODS We previously identified the wild-type strain by API biochemical reactions and 16S r RNA sequence analysis. Following(More)
As a benthic filter feeder of estuaries, the immune system of oysters provides one of the best models for studying the genetic and molecular basis of the innate immune pathway in marine invertebrates and examining the influence of environmental factors on the immune system. Here, the molecular function of molluscan TANK-binding kinase-1 (TBK1) (which we(More)
Interleukin-1 receptor-associated kinases (IRAKs) play important roles in MyD88-dependent TLR signaling, the crucial innate immune pathway in molluscs. In this study, we examined the full-length IRAK4 genetic sequence in the Pacific oyster (Crassostrea gigas) by molecular cloning. Phylogenetic analysis revealed that CgIRAK4 is most closely related to(More)
Apoptosis is considered a crucial part of the host defense system in oysters according to previous reports; however, the exact process by which this occurs remains unclear. Besides, mitochondrial apoptosis is the primary method of apoptosis in vertebrate cells, but has been poorly studied in invertebrates and is quite controversial. In this study, we(More)
Alternative splicing (AS) is thought to enhance transcriptome diversity dramatically and play an important role in stress adaptation. While well studied in vertebrates, AS remains poorly understood in invertebrates. Here, we used high-throughput RNA-sequencing data to perform a genome-wide survey of AS in the Pacific oyster (Crassostrea gigas), an(More)
