Endometrium receptivity is essential for successful embryo implantation in mammals. However, the lack of genetic information remains an obstacle to understanding the mechanisms underlying the development of a receptive endometrium from the pre-receptive phase in dairy goats. In a recent study by researchers from Northwest A&F University, more than 4 billion high-quality reads were generated […]

Heat stress (HS) in hot climates is a major cause that strongly negatively affects milk yield in dairy cattle, leading to immeasurable economic loss. The heat stress response of bovine mammary epithelial cells (BMECs) is one component of the acute systemic response to HS. Gene networks of BMECs respond to environmental heat loads with both […]

The miR396 and growth-regulating factor (GRF) regulatory network is evolutionarily conserved among plant species. The orthologous GRF genes in rice have been shown to be involved in regulating grain development and are targeted by miR396. However, there is still no information on the involvement of miR396 and GRF genes in maize grain. In recent work […]

Drought is one of the main limiting factors for peanut yield worldwide. However, the underlying genetic and molecular mechanisms remain unclear. In a recent study led by researchers from Jiangsu Academy of Agricultural Sciences, investigators identified several water deficiency tolerant peanut germplasms based on physiological properties in the seedling stage. One of the germplasms was […]

In a recent study headed by researchers from China Agricultural University, seedlings of Cucumis sativus L. (cv. ‘Zhongnong 16’) were artificially inoculated with Cucumber green mottle mosaic virus (CGMMV) at the three-true-leaf stage. Leaf and flower samples were collected at different time points post-inoculation (10, 30 and 50 d), and processed using miRNA/small RNA sequencing […]

microRNAs (miRNAs) are endogenous small (~21 nucleotide) single-stranded non-coding RNAs that typically function by guiding cleavage of target genes. To find the miRNAs that may be involved in dark-induced leaf senescence, researchers from Hangzhou Normal University identified miRNAs by miRNA microarray using Arabidopsis thaliana leaves from both whole darkened plants (DPs) and individually darkened leaves […]

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are short, highly conserved small noncoding RNAs that had fundamental roles in post-transcriptional gene expression, and they are crucial for proper control of biological processes and known to participate in embryo implantation. However, miRNA expression profiles in the pre-receptive and receptive phases of the goat endometrium during embryo implantation are unknown. Therefore, researchers […]

Previous studies have shown that fastigial nucleus stimulation (FNS) reduces tissue damage resulting from focal cerebral ischemia. Although the mechanisms of neuroprotection induced by FNS are not entirely understood, important data have been presented in the past two decades. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a newly discovered group of non-coding small RNA molecules that negatively regulate target […]
