Abstract The forkhead box (Fox) gene family is a family of transcription factors that play important roles in a variety of biological processes in vertebrates, including early development and cell proliferation and differentiation. However, at present, studies on the mollusk Fox family are relatively lacking. In the present study, the Fox gene family of the Yesso scallop (Patinopecten yessoensis) was systematically identified. In addition, the expression profiles of the Fox gene family in early ...

Abstract Azoospermia factors, located in the long arm of the Y chromosome, are critical for spermatogenesis, the microdeletions of AZF are considered to be associated with male infertility. In addition to complete deletion, several AZFc partial deletions were also detected in infertile men with wide phenotypic heterogeneity. In this study, we investigated the relevance of Y chromosome deletions, Y-linked CNVs and variable phenotypes in infertile men. To clarify the relationship between phenotypi...

Abstract 5-Aminolevulinic acid synthase (ALAS) is the rate-limiting enzyme in the biosynthesis of heme, a prosthetic group that is found in hemoproteins, including those involved in molting. To better understand the roles of ALAS in L. vannamei (LvALAS), we analyzed its sequence and tissue distribution, the effects of age and bacterial infection on its gene expression, and the effects of LvALAS gene silencing. We also examined the expressions of three hemoproteins, the cytochrome oxidase subunit...
Abstract Objectives P27kip is a cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor that has gained importance as a biomarker in human malignant tumors. However, the potential role of P27kip in hepatocellular carcinoma remains unclear. The aim of this meta-analysis was to explore whether P27kip has prognostic and clinicopathological roles in hepatocellular carcinoma patients. Methods/Materials: An electronic search based on three databases, PubMed, Embase, and Web of Science, was performed to select a sufficient ...

Abstract Background Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) have been inconsistently associated with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) risk. This meta-analysis aimed to synthesize relevant data on SNPs associated with HCC in the Asian population. Methods Databases were searched to identify association studies of SNPs and HCC in Asians published through January 2019. Summary odds ratios (ORs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were calculated based on 41 studies (13,167 patients with HCC and 15,886 n...

Abstract Bacteria and archaea accumulate cytoplasmic polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) granules under nutrient-limited conditions with excess carbon. The transcriptional regulatory (TR) proteins found on the surface of PHA granules act as repressors as well as activators for the expression of major surface proteins called phasins. Until now, detailed information on the evolutionary relationships between these transcription regulators has not been available. Here, we conducted homology searches and anal...

Abstract Purpose Identification the genetic factors in preeclampsia (PE) are useful to increase the current knowledge of the pathophysiology of the disorder. The genetic factors implicated for all cases of PE remain to be determined. This study was aimed to investigate association between ADD1 1378G>T, AGTR2 1675G>A, AGTR1 1166A>C, NOS3 894 G>T and CYP11B2 -344C>T gene polymorphisms in Iranian women with PE. Material and Methods 117 pregnant women with PE and 103 healthy women without affected p...

Abstract Multiple antidepressive treatment methods are widely used in the clinic, but different patients showed considerable differences in response to the same treatment. The catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT) rs4680 polymorphism is involved in the antidepressive treatment reaction; however, the results in different studies are inconsistent. Thus, we performed a meta-analysis to explore the association of the COMT rs4680 polymorphism with the treatment response in major depressive disorder (MD...
