Large-scale development, characterization, and cross-amplification of EST–SSR markers in Chinese chive

Chinese chive (Allium tuberosum Rottler ex Spr.) is an important vegetable crop. However, genetic and breeding studies of the species have been restricted by the lack of simple sequence repeat markers (SSRs). In the present study, a total of 2553 Chinese chive SSRs were developed from the species’ transcriptome, with 626, 643, and 536 of the makers located in .. Read More»

Novel polymorphisms in bovine CD4 and LAG-3 genes associated with somatic cell counts of clinical mastitis cows

Clinical mastitis cows normally produce clotted milk, thus the much higher somatic cells in milk are unable to be counted by routine FOSS machine. The proteins coded by CD4 and LAG-3 genes can bind to MHC class II molecules and play important roles in in-flammatory diseases. The present study was designed to investigate the effects of single nucleotide polymorphisms.. Read More»

LC-MS based identification of secondary metabolites from marine antagonistic endophytic bacteria

Halophytes occupy coastal and sub-coastal area of marine environment. They potential candidates for search of novel and new bacterial flora that have immense potential to yield novel therapeutic agents. Six different endophytic bacteria have been isolated from pneumatophores and roots of three halophytes (Salsola imbricata, Avicennia marina and Haplopeplis perfoliat.. Read More»

Parapatric speciation found in Limnonectes (Dicroglossidae) species in Thailand

Biodiversity stems from speciation, and species identification allows scientists to measure species biodiversity. However, some closely related species, particularly amphibians that choose to inhabit the same environment, are difficult to identify. Juvenile specimens of Limnonectes gyldenstolpei (Lg) and L. taylori (Lt) were used as models to study the speciation pr.. Read More»
