Background: The MS4A gene family in humans includes CD20 (MS4A1), FcRb (MS4A2), Htm4 (MS4A3), and at least 13 other syntenic genes encoding membrane proteins, most having characteristic tetraspanning topology. Expression of MS4A genes is variable in tissues throughout the body; however, several...
Background: Bast fibres from the phloem tissues of flax are scientifically interesting and economically useful due in part to a dynamic system of secondary cell wall deposition. To better understand the molecular mechanisms underlying the process of cell wall development in flax, we extracted...
Endogenous melanocortin antagonist in fish: Structure, brain mapping and regulation by fasting of the goldfish agouti-related protein geneDownload
Agouti-related protein (AGRP) is a naturally occurring antagonist of melanocortin. In mammals, central AGRP expression is restricted to the arcuate nucleus in which it plays a key role in the control of energy balance by antagonizing melanocortin effects at melanocortin 4 receptors. In goldfish,...
Cytokine profiles in pregnant gilts experimentally infected with porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus and relationships with viral load and fetal outcomeDownload
In spite of extensive research, immunologic control mechanisms against Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome virus (PRRSv) remain poorly understood. Cytokine responses have been exhaustively studied in nursery pigs and show contradictory results. Since no detailed reports on cytokine...
Systematic microRNAome profiling reveals the roles of microRNAs in milk protein metabolism and quality: Insights on low-quality forage utilizationDownload
In this study, we investigated the molecular regulatory mechanisms of milk protein production in dairy cows by studying the miRNAomes of five key metabolic tissues involved in protein synthesis and metabolism from dairy cows fed high- and low-quality diets. In total, 340, 338, 337, 330, and 328...
Purification and characterization of an anaerobically induced alanine aminotransferase from barley rootsDownload
Alanine aminotransferase (AlaAT, EC 126.96.36.199) is an enzyme that is induced under anaerobic conditions in cereal roots. In barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) roots, there are a number of isoforms of AlaAT. We have identified the anaerobically induced isoform and have purified it to homogeneity. The...
Background Pbx genes encode TALE class homeodomain transcription factors that pattern the developing neural tube, pancreas, and blood. Within the hindbrain, Pbx cooperates with Hox proteins to regulate rhombomere segment identity. Pbx cooperates with Eng to regulate midbrain-hindbrain boundary...
The APETALA-2-Like Transcription Factor OsAP2-39 Controls Key Interactions between Abscisic Acid and Gibberellin in RiceDownload
The interaction between phytohormones is an important mechanism which controls growth and developmental processes in plants. Deciphering these interactions is a crucial step in helping to develop crops with enhanced yield and resistance to environmental stresses. Controlling the expression level...
Children's Expression of Emotional and Cognitive Mental States in their Story Generation from PicturesDownload
Background: The term mental state can be used to describe a person’s emotional or cognitive condition (i.e. feelings, thoughts, or perceptions). Narratives provide an important context for the use of mental state words, since stories in Western culture frequently describe characters’ thoughts...
