BackgroundEggshell formation takes place in the shell gland of the oviduct of laying hens. The eggshell is rich in calcium and various glycoproteins synthesised in the shell gland. Although studies have identified genes involved in eggshell formation, little is known about the regulation of genes in the shell gland particularly in a temporal manner. The current study investigated the global gene expression profile of the shell gland of laying hens at different time-points of eggshell formation… 
Uterine transcriptome analysis reveals mRNA expression changes associated with the ultrastructure differences of eggshell in young and aged laying hens
TLDR
Altered gene expression of matrix proteins along with the compromised immune function in uterus of laying hens in the late phase of production may conduce to age-related impairments of eggshell ultrastructure and mechanical properties.
Transcriptome analysis of the uterus of hens laying eggs differing in cuticle deposition
TLDR
Insight is gained into the factors that can affect the production of the cuticle especially clock genes and immediate early genes and it is demonstrated that these genes change their expression over the period of eggshell formation supporting their importance.
Cuticle deposition duration in the uterus is correlated with eggshell cuticle quality in White Leghorn laying hens
TLDR
Eggshell and cuticle deposition duration in the uterus is one of the major factors affecting ESCQ in laying hens, and several genes involved with eggshell cuticle quality are identified.
Transcriptome analyses to reveal the dynamic change mechanism of pigeon magnum during one egg‐laying cycle
TLDR
Pigeon magnum transcriptome in three stages was analyzed to elucidate the molecular and cellular events associated with morphological changes during the laying cycle, and PR gene expression was highest and exhibited drastic change in the three groups, indicating that PR and its regulation may be involved in changes in magnum morphology and function.
Transcriptome profiling analysis of caeca in chicks challenged with Salmonella Typhimurium reveals differential expression of genes involved in host mucosal immune response.
TLDR
Overall, the immune response to Salmonella Typhimurium challenge was temporally regulated through the activation of Toll-like signaling receptor pathway, cytokine-cytokine interactions andSalmonella infection, where IL6 played a significant role in the modulation of caecal immune system against Salmoneella Typhimuium.
The effect of Artichoke (Cynara scolymus L.) on the expression of calcium-binding proteins in the eggshell gland of laying hens.
TLDR
The supplementation of the laying hens' diet with dried artichoke led to a significant increase of Ca content in blood that was reflected in the changes of expression of the eggshell gland genes involved in the mineralization of eggshell.
Recent Applications of RNA Sequencing in Food and Agriculture
TLDR
This chapter introduces RNA-Seq and surveys its recent food and agriculture applications, ranging from differential gene expression, variants calling and detection, allele-specific expression, alternative splicing, alternative polyadenylation site usage, microRNA profiling, circular RNAs, single-cell RNA- Seq, metatranscriptomics, and systems biology.
Transcriptomic Analysis Provides Novel Insights into Heat Stress Responses in Sheep
TLDR
This study applied RNA-Seq technology to analyze liver tissues of sheep from heat-stressed and control groups, and screened genes and pathways related to sheep heat stress, providing a theoretical foundation for the breeding and production of heat-resistant sheep.
The Transcriptome Landscape of Walnut Interspecies Hybrid (Juglans hindsii × Juglans regia) and Regulation of Cambial Activity in Relation to Grafting
TLDR
The transcriptome landscape of six important organs or tissues in walnut interspecies hybrid using next-generation sequencing technology is reported for the first time, and the obtained sequences and putative functional data constitute a resource for future functional analyses in walnuts and other woody plants.

Cell-Specific and Temporal Aspects of Gene Expression in the Chicken Oviduct at Different Stages of the Laying Cycle1
TLDR
High-throughput analysis revealed cell-specific and temporal changes in gene expression in the oviduct at 3 h and 20 h postovulation in laying hens provide novel insight into changes at the molecular and cellular levels of candidate genes related to formation of the egg and oviposition.
Hen uterine gene expression profiling during eggshell formation reveals putative proteins involved in the supply of minerals or in the shell mineralization process
TLDR
This study compared global gene expression in laying hen uterus in the presence or absence of shell calcification in order to characterize gene products involved in the supply of minerals and / or the shell biomineralization process.
Gene expression profiling to identify eggshell proteins involved in physical defense of the chicken egg
TLDR
This study provides the first detailed description of the chicken uterus transcriptome during formation of the eggshell and identifies a cache of about 600 functional genes and a large number of encoded proteins secreted into uterine fluid for fabrication of the Eggshell and chemical protection ofThe egg.
Reference gene selection for gene expression study in shell gland and spleen of laying hens challenged with infectious bronchitis virus
TLDR
The two most and least stable reference genes obtained in the study, were further used for candidate target gene expression data normalisation of the shell gland and spleen under an IBV infection model and produced accurate and more robust gene expressionData.
Recrudescence Mechanisms and Gene Expression Profile of the Reproductive Tracts from Chickens during the Molting Period
TLDR
Global gene expression profiles following oviductal tissue regression and regeneration in laying hens in which molting was induced by feeding high levels of zinc in the diet suggest that miRNA-mediated regulation of key genes likely contributes to remodeling of the avian reproductive tract by controlling expression of those genes post-transcriptionally.
Chicken Pleiotrophin: Regulation of Tissue Specific Expression by Estrogen in the Oviduct and Distinct Expression Pattern in the Ovarian Carcinomas
Pleiotrophin (PTN) is a developmentally-regulated growth factor which is widely distributed in various tissues and also detected in many kinds of carcinomas. However, little is known about the PTN
Cloning of Ovocalyxin-36, a Novel Chicken Eggshell Protein Related to Lipopolysaccharide-binding Proteins, Bactericidal Permeability-increasing Proteins, and Plunc Family Proteins*
TLDR
Observations suggest that OCX-36 is a novel and specific chicken eggshell protein related to the superfamily of lipopolysaccharide-binding proteins/bactericidal permeability-increasing proteins and Plunc proteins and may participate in natural defense mechanisms that keep the egg free of pathogens.
Involvement of osteopontin in egg shell formation in the laying chicken.
Expression of TRPV6 and CaBP-D28k in the egg shell gland (uterus) during the oviposition cycle of the laying hen
TLDR
The increase of TRPV6 and CaBP-D28k mRNA and protein expression during eggshell formation suggests that active Ca2+ transcellular transport exerts significant effects in delivering active calcium in the ESG.
