Genetic Variability of mtDNA Sequences in Chinese Native Chicken Breeds
The variability of mtDNA hypervariable segment I (HVS I) sequences was investigated in a total of 48 birds belonging to 12 Chinese native chicken breeds. Sixteen haplotypes were identified from 35Expand
Compositional analysis and structural elucidation of glycosaminoglycans in chicken eggs
Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) have numerous applications in the fields of pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, nutraceuticals, and foods. GAGs are also critically important in the developmental biology of allExpand
A putative transcriptional elongation factor hIws1 is essential for mammalian cell proliferation.
Iws1 has been implicated in transcriptional elongation by interaction with RNA polymerase II (RNAP II) and elongation factor Spt6 in budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, and association withExpand
Keratan sulfate glycosaminoglycan from chicken egg white.
Keratan sulfate (KS) was isolated from chicken egg white in amounts corresponding to ∼0.06 wt% (dry weight). This KS had a weight-average molecular weight of ∼36-41 kDa with a polydispersity of ∼1.3.Expand
Microarray Analysis of Genes Involved with Shell Strength in Layer Shell Gland at the Early Stage of Active Calcification
The objective of this study was to get a comprehensive understanding of how genes in chicken shell gland modulate eggshell strength at the early stage of active calcification. Four 32-week old ofExpand
Characteristics of glycosaminoglycans in chicken eggshells and the influence of disaccharide composition on eggshell properties.
Glycosaminoglycans (GAG) are linear, highly negatively charged polysaccharides that may perform an important role in biomineralization. GAG were isolated from chicken eggshell membranes and calcifiedExpand
Characteristics of global organic matrix in normal and pimpled chicken eggshells
&NA; The organic matrix from normal and pimpled calcified chicken eggshells were dissociated into acid‐insoluble, water‐insoluble, and facultative‐soluble (both acid‐ and water‐soluble) components,Expand
Comparative proteomics of matrix fractions between pimpled and normal chicken eggshells.
Eggshell matrix can be dissociated into three matrix fractions: acid-insoluble matrix (M1), water-insoluble matrix (M2) and acid-water facultative-soluble matrix (M3). Matrix fractions from pimpledExpand
