AMPD1 is the muscle-specific form of the AMPD multigene families in mammals and plays an important role in the purine nucleotide cycle and energy metabolism in skeletal muscle. In this study, we cloned and characterized AMPD1 from Sus scrofa muscle. The promoter of porcine AMPD1 contained several putative muscle-specific transcription factor binding sites(More)
The 2-DE/MS-based proteomics approach was used to investigate the differences of porcine skeletal muscle, and ATP5B was identified as one differential expression protein. In the present study, ATP5B gene was further cloned by RT-PCR, the sequence was analyzed using the bioinformatics method, and the mRNA expression was detected by qRT-PCR. Sequence analysis(More)
To gain further insight into the molecular mechanism of porcine skeletal muscle development, we combined MS characterization of proteins with high-throughput screening of differential mRNAs obtained from purebred Meishan longissimus dorsi muscle (LM) at four stages of 65 days post conception, 3, 60 and 120 days after birth. Strikingly, the dramatic(More)
miR-3127-5p is a primate-specific miRNA which is down-regulated in recurrent NSCLC tissue vs. matched primary tumor tissue (N = 15) and in tumor tissue vs. normal lung tissue (N = 177). Reduced miR-3127-5p expression is associated with a higher Ki-67 proliferation index and unfavorable prognosis in NSCLC. Overexpression of miR-3127-5p significantly reduced(More)
Small sample sizes and large inter-subject variations result in inconsistent findings in resting-state cerebral blood flow (CBF) in schizophrenia. The CBF connectivity alterations in schizophrenia remain unclear. Recently, three-dimensional pseudo-continuous arterial spin labeling (pcASL) imaging was performed to measure the resting-state CBF in 100(More)
The present study investigated the expression of miR-150 and miR-3940-5p in non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) and its relationship with clinicopathologic features. Samples included tumor, tumor-adjacent and normal lung parenchyma tissues from 90 NSCLC patients and 17 cases of embryonic lung cDNA. The expression levels(More)
SRPK3 is a protein kinase belonging to serine/arginine protein kinases (SRPK) family, which phosphorylates serine/arginine repeat-containing proteins, and is controlled by a muscle-specific enhancer directly regulated by MEF2. In this study, a full-length cDNA of the porcine SRPK3 gene encoding a 566 amino acid protein was isolated. It contains 14 exons(More)
Rad4/Cut5 is a scaffold protein in the Chk1-mediated DNA damage checkpoint in S. pombe. However, whether it contains a robust ATR-activation domain (AAD) required for checkpoint signaling like its orthologs TopBP1 in humans and Dpb11 in budding yeast has been incompletely clear. To identify the putative AAD in Rad4, we carried out an extensive genetic(More)
Altered spontaneous brain activity as measured by ALFF, fALFF, and ReHo has been reported in schizophrenia, but no consensus has been reached on alternations of these indexes in the disorder. We aimed to clarify the regional alterations in ALFF, fALFF, and ReHo in schizophrenia using a meta-analysis and a large-sample validation. A meta-analysis of(More)
BACKGROUND Epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) is a crucial step for solid tumor progression and plays an important role in cancer invasion and metastasis. RNF8 is an ubiquitin E3 ligase with RING domain, and plays essential roles in DNA damage response and cell cycle regulation. However the role of RNF8 in the pathogenesis of breast cancer is still(More)
