As the fast pace of genomic research continues to identify mitochondrial lineages in animals, it has become apparent that many independent studies are needed to support a robust phylogenetic inference. The aim of this study was thus to further characterize the maternal lineage, proposed to originate in southwestern region of China, using a wider survey of(More)
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCS) from chicken fetal liver are multipotent stem cells that can differentiate in vitro into various terminally differentiated cells. The majority of studies have focused on rats and mice now. Reports from other animals are less and analyses on domestic animals are few. In this study, chicken liver-derived MSCs were isolated from(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are evolutionarily conserved, small, non-coding RNAs that have emerged as key regulators of myogenesis. Here, we examined the miRNA expression profiles of developing sheep skeletal muscle using a deep sequencing approach. We detected 2,396 miRNAs in the sheep skeletal muscle tissues. Of these, miR-192 was found to be up-regulated in(More)
