Comparative transcriptomic analysis of rectal tissue from beef steers revealed reduced host immunity in Escherichia coli O157:H7 super-sheddersDownload
Super-shedder cattle are a major disseminator of E. coli O157:H7 into the environment, and the terminal rectum has been proposed as the primary E. coli O157:H7 colonization site. This study aimed to identify host factors that are associated with the super-shedding process by comparing...
Breast cancer (BC) continues to be one of the leading causes of cancer related death among women. Despite continuous progress in screening, diagnosis and treatment of BC, a subset of patients experience recurrence and/or death. Optimal management of BC has remained a challenge due to these...
Differential expression of miRNAs in Brassica napus root following infection with Plasmodiophora brassicaeDownload
Canola (oilseed rape, Brassica napus L.) is susceptible to infection by the biotrophic protist Plasmodiophora brassicae, the causal agent of clubroot. To understand the roles of microRNAs (miRNAs) during the post-transcriptional regulation of disease initiation and progression, we have...
Altered microRNA expression in bovine subcutaneous and visceral adipose tissues from cattle under different dietDownload
Background MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of molecular regulators found to participate in numerous biological processes, including adipogenesis in mammals. This study aimed to evaluate the differences of miRNA expression between bovine subcutaneous (backfat) and visceral fat depots (perirenal...
Cancer cachexia (CC) is a multifactorial syndrome characterized by severe depletion of skeletal muscle, with or without fat loss. A majority of cancer patients with incurable cancer are affected with cachexia and it remains an unmet medical need. Gene expression changes at the transcriptional...
Genome wide identification and functional prediction of long non-coding RNAs responsive to Sclerotinia sclerotiorum infection in Brassica napusDownload
Sclerotinia stem rot caused by Sclerotinia sclerotiorum affects canola production worldwide. Emerging evidence suggests that long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) play important roles in the regulation of gene expression in plants, in response to both abiotic and biotic stress. So far, identification of...
