Genome-Wide Survey of Pseudogenes in 80 Fully Re-sequenced Arabidopsis thaliana Accessions
Pseudogenes (Ψs), including processed and non-processed Ψs, are ubiquitous genetic elements derived from originally functional genes in all studied genomes within the three kingdoms of life. However,Expand
Alpha-Ketoglutarate: Physiological Functions and Applications
Alpha-ketoglutarate (AKG) is a key molecule in the Krebs cycle determining the overall rate of the citric acid cycle of the organism. It is a nitrogen scavenger and a source of glutamate andExpand
Characterization of the Gut Microbiota in Six Geographical Populations of Chinese Rhesus Macaques (Macaca mulatta), Implying an Adaptation to High-Altitude Environment
Knowledge about the impact of different geographical environments on rhesus macaque gut microbiota is limited. In this study, we compared the characteristics of gut microbiota in six differentExpand
Evolutionary conservation of the circadian gene timeout in Metazoa
Timeless ( Tim ) is considered to function as an essential circadian clock gene in Drosophila . Putative homologues of the Drosophila timeless gene have been identified in both mice and humans. WhileExpand
Evidence of adaptive evolution of alpine pheasants to high-altitude environment from mitogenomic perspective
Abstract Adaptive evolutions to high-altitude adaptation have been intensively studied in mammals. However, considering the additional vertebrate groups, new perception regarding selection challengedExpand
Phylogenetic analysis of chinese rhesus macaques (Macaca mulatta) based on mitochondrial control region sequences
Between one and six subspecies of Chinese rhesus macaques (Macaca mulatta) have been proposed based on morphological differences and/or their geographic distribution. In this study, a 489 base pairExpand
Genetic variation and phylogenetic relationship between three serow species of the genus Capricornis based on the complete mitochondrial DNA control region sequences
The molecular evidence of phylogenetic status regarding the Formosan serow (Capricornis swinhoei) is not robust and little is known about the genetic diversity of the Sumatran serow (CapricornisExpand
Complete mitochondrial genome and phylogenetic relationship analysis of Garrulax affinis (Passeriformes, Timaliidae)
Abstract Garrulax affinis was a medium-sized bird of Timaliidae, and we got its complete mitochondrial genome by the polymerase chain reaction method (PCR). The genome (17 856 in length), itExpand
Genetic diversity and differentiation of the rhesus macaque (Macaca mulatta) population in western Sichuan, China, based on the second exon of the major histocompatibility complex class II DQB
AbstractsBackgroundRhesus macaques living in western Sichuan, China, have been separated into several isolated populations due to habitat fragmentation. Previous studies based on the neutral orExpand
Characterizing the microbiota in gastrointestinal tract segments of Rhabdophis subminiatus: Dynamic changes and functional predictions
The gut microbiota helps the host to absorb nutrients and generate immune responses that can affect host behavior, development, reproduction, and overall health. However, in most of the previousExpand
