Next-generation sequencing (NGS) approaches are widely used in genome-wide genetic marker discovery and genotyping. However, current NGS approaches are not easy to apply to general outbred populations (human and some major farm animals) for SNP identification because of the high level of heterogeneity and phase ambiguity in the haplotype. Here, we reported(More)
The mutation of the Wilson's disease protein ATP7B has been widely used to study the direct link between hepatic high copper and development of liver pathology. Several studies have used gene expression profiling of high-copper effects to identify the key genes in the process, but few focused on the involved pathways and the coexpression patterns of(More)
Pigs have experienced dramatic selection due to domestication, which has led to many different phenotypes when compared to their wild counterparts, especially in the last several decades. Currently, genome-wide scans in both cattle and humans showing positive selection footprints have been investigated. However, few studies have focused on porcine selection(More)
Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are essential for identifying the genetic mechanisms of complex traits. In the present study, we applied genotyping by genome reducing and sequencing (GGRS) method to construct a 252-plex sequencing library for SNP discovery and genotyping in chicken. The library was successfully sequenced on an Illumina HiSeq 2500(More)
Copper is required for structural and catalytic properties of a variety of enzymes participating in many vital biological processes for growth and development. Feeds provide most of the copper as an essential micronutrient consumed by animals, but inorganic copper could not be utilized effectively. In the present study, we aimed to develop transgenic mouse(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the weight-reducing effect of Acer truncatum leave extract on alimentary obesity rats and its effect on fatty acid synthase (FAS). METHODS SPF-grade adult male Wistar rats were fed with high-fat diet and Acer truncatum leave extract (10, 30 and 100 mg/kg BW) was given by gavage once a day for 31 days. Body weight (BW), adipose(More)
Sewing needles, albeit rare in the case of penetrating cardiac injury, are highly lethal; especially in children, because the injury is difficult to diagnose and treat. We herein present the case of a 13-month-old girl who was injured by a sewing needle inserted in the myocardium; it is the first report of its kind from mainland China. The 13-month-old girl(More)
Rh(2)(4S-MEOX)(4) and ethereal solvent are the best catalytic system for the enantioselective intramolecular C-H insertion of N-(2-benzyloxyethyl)-N-(tert-butyl)diazoacetamide 2. The highest enantiomeric excess obtained was 91%. A new route for the asymmetric synthesis of gamma-amino-beta-hydroxybutyric acid (GABOB) has been developed.
