Genetic Variations in Two Seahorse Species (Hippocampus mohnikei and Hippocampus trimaculatus): Evidence for Middle Pleistocene Population Expansion
TLDR
The star-like pattern median-joining network of cytb and CR markers indicated a previous demographic expansion of H. mohnikei and H. trimaculatus, indicating a possible signature of genetic variation and population expansion in two seahorses under complex marine environments. Expand
The mitochondrial genome of a sea anemone Bolocera sp. exhibits novel genetic structures potentially involved in adaptation to the deep‐sea environment
TLDR
The mitogenome of a deep‐sea sea anemone was sequenced and characterized and it was deduced that these novel gene features may influence the activity of mitochondria, one of the most important organelles on earth. Expand
A new species of seahorse (Teleostei: Syngnathidae) from the South China Sea.
TLDR
Molecular analysis showed all individuals of the new species clustering together suggesting a monophyletic lineage and combined analysis supports the distinctness of H. casscsio sp. Expand
Molecular evolution of the ankyrin gene family.
TLDR
A novel model for the putative primordial ankyrin that contains the fourth six-ANK-repeat subdomain and the spectrin-binding domain is put forward, which will provide guides for future studies concerning structure, function, evolutionary origins of ankyrins, and possibly other cytoskeletal proteins. Expand
The leptin system and its expression at different nutritional and pregnant stages in lined seahorse (Hippocampus erectus)
TLDR
In conclusion, the leptin system plays a role in the energy metabolism and food intake, and might provide new insights into molecular regulation of male pregnancy in seahorse. Expand
The seahorse genome and the evolution of its specialized morphology
TLDR
The sequencing and de novo assembly of the genome of the tiger tail seahorse, Hippocampus comes is reported and it is found that the H. comes genome lacks enamel matrix protein-coding proline/glutamine-rich secretory calcium-binding phosphoprotein genes, which might have led to the loss of mineralized teeth. Expand
Draft genome of the lined seahorse, Hippocampus erectus
TLDR
Generated genomic data are going to enrich genome resource of this economically important fish, and also provide insights into the genetic mechanisms of its iconic morphology and male pregnancy behavior. Expand
Effects of water current on swimming performance, ventilation frequency, and feeding behavior of young seahorses (Hippocampus erectus)
TLDR
For all of the groups, the high water current could significantly decrease the total feed frequency (TFF) and effective feeding frequency (EFF), with the swimming seahorses having a higher feeding frequency than that of the attaching seahorse. Expand
Environmental estrogens and progestins disturb testis and brood pouch development with modifying transcriptomes in male-pregnancy lined seahorse Hippocampus erectus.
TLDR
It is suggested that seahorses be regarded as a sensitive indicator for evaluating the potential effects of endocrine disrupting chemical (EDC) pollution on aquatic biotic communities. Expand
Complete mitochondrial genome sequence of the longsnout seahorse Hippocampus reidi (Ginsburg, 1933; Gasterosteiformes: Syngnathidae)
TLDR
The complete mitochondrial genome sequence of the longsnout seahorse Hippocampus reidi was determined and the gene order and composition of H. reidi were similar to those of most other vertebrates. Expand
