Mit1/Lb9 and Copg2, new members of mouse imprinted genes closely linked to Peg1/Mest
Two mouse genes, Mit1/Lb9 and Copg2, linked to Peg1/Mest on mouse chromosome 6, were identified to be imprinted maternally and paternally, respectively. Mit1/Lb9 encoding untranslated transcriptsExpand

Comparative Genomics Reveals Adaptation by Alteromonas sp. SN2 to Marine Tidal-Flat Conditions: Cold Tolerance and Aromatic Hydrocarbon Metabolism
Alteromonas species are globally distributed copiotrophic bacteria in marine habitats. Among these, sea-tidal flats are distinctive: undergoing seasonal temperature and oxygen-tension changes, plusExpand

Discovery of genes for ginsenoside biosynthesis by analysis of ginseng expressed sequence tags
Expressed sequence tags (ESTs) provide a valuable tool that can be used to identify genes in secondary metabolite biosynthesis. Ginseng (Panax ginseng C.A Meyer) is a medicinal plant that accumulatesExpand

Metatranscriptomic analysis of lactic acid bacterial gene expression during kimchi fermentation.
Barcode-based 16S rRNA gene pyrosequencing showed that the kimchi microbiome was dominated by six lactic acid bacteria (LAB), Leuconostoc (Lc.) mesenteroides, Lactobacillus (Lb.) sakei, WeissellaExpand

Gene Tree Discordance Can Generate Patterns of Diminishing Convergence over Time.
Phenotypic convergence is an exciting outcome of adaptive evolution, occurring when different species find similar solutions to the same problem. Unraveling the molecular basis of convergenceExpand

Evidence for bacterial origin of heat shock RNA-1.
The heat shock RNA-1 (HSR1) is a noncoding RNA (ncRNA) reported to be involved in mammalian heat shock response. HSR1 was shown to significantly stimulate the heat-shock factor 1 (HSF1) trimerizationExpand

Heat Shock RNA 1, Known as a Eukaryotic Temperature-Sensing Noncoding RNA, Is of Bacterial Origin.
Heat shock RNA 1 (HSR1) is described as a "eukaryotic heat-sensing noncoding RNA" that regulates heat shock response in human and other eukaryotic cells. Highly conserved HSR1 sequences have beenExpand

Accurate quantitation of allele-specific expression patterns by analysis of DNA melting.
Epigenetic and genetic mechanisms can result in large differences in expression levels of the two alleles in a diploid organism. Furthermore, these differences may be critical to phenotypicExpand
