Microsatellite-based analysis of genetic structure and gene flow of Mythimna separata (Walker) (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) in China

Mei-Mei Li, Bo‐Liao Li, Shi‐Xiong Jiang, Yu‐Wan Zhao, Xiang‐Li Xu & Jun‐Xiang Wu
The oriental armyworm, Mythimna separata, is a serious agricultural pest in China. Seasonal and roundtrip migration has recently led to sudden, localized outbreaks and crop losses. To evaluate genetic differentiation between populations in eastern and western China and elucidate gene flow, the genetic structure of 20 natural populations from nine provinces was examined using seven microsatellite markers. The results indicated high genetic diversity. However, little to moderate (0 < FST < 0.15) genetic differentiation was...

Long non-coding RNA XIST promotes the progression of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma through sponging miR-129-5p and upregulating CCND1 expression

Haoran Wang, Haomiao Li, Yongkui Yu, Qingfeng Jiang, Ruixiang Zhang, Haibo Sun, Wenqun Xing & Yin Li
Long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) X inactive specific transcript (XIST) has been identified as an oncogenic lncRNA in a series of human cancers, including esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC). In this study, we aimed to further explore the underlying mechanism of XIST on ESCC progression. qRT-PCR assay was used to determine the levels of XIST and miR-129-5p. Western blot analysis was performed to assess cyclin D1 (CCND1) expression. Bioinformatic analysis was performed using starBase v2.0 software....

Trade-off between vegetation type, soil erosion control and surface water in global semi-arid regions: A meta-analysis

Gao-Lin Wu, Yi-Fan Liu, Zeng Cui, Yu Liu, Zhi-Hua Shi, Rui Yin & Paul Kardol
Soil erosion control and water resource protection can closely interact during restoration of terrestrial ecosystems. In semi‐arid ecosystems, an urgent issue is how vegetation restoration can achieve the goal of soil erosion mitigation and water conservation, which in turn, feeds back to ecosystem functioning. We reviewed 78 articles from 22 countries in semi‐arid areas to evaluate the effects of vegetation type (i.e. forest, grassland and scrubland) on runoff and sediment yields across different environmental conditions...

Revealing the roles of DnaA on the biological characteristics of Brucella and the inflammatory response to Brucella

Wang Aihua
The Brucella cell cycle, including chromosomal replication and cell division, is coordinated with the virulence of the bacteria. DnaA, a chromosomal replication initiator protein, is an essential regulator of cell cycle progression and is tightly regulated both temporally and spatially because it is activated only once per cell cycle in bacteria. Although DnaA exists in many bacteria, the role of DnaA during Brucella infection, with the exception of its induction of the initiation of chromosome...

Long non-coding RNA PCAT1 drives clear cell renal cell carcinoma by upregulating YAP via sponging miR-656 and miR-539

Rui Wang, Bin Zheng, Hongyan Liu & Xiuxian Wan
Clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) is the most common RCC subtype with high metastasis, poor prognosis and conventional chemotherapy resistance. Prostate cancer associated transcript 1 (PCAT1) is an important lncRNA that was reported to be involved in cell proliferation, migration and invasion of several types of cancer cells. However, its role in ccRCC is still undetermined. This study found that PCAT1 levels were elevated in ccRCC tumors as well as several ccRCC cells, and...

A novel SNP of MYO1A gene associated with heat-tolerance in Chinese cattle

Yanhong Cao, Peng Jia, Zhuyue Wu, Mingguang Huang, Shaomei Chen, Jicai Zhang, Bizhi Huang & Chuzhao Lei
With the advent of global climate change, heat-tolerance is becoming more and more important to the sustainability of animal husbandry production systems. Previous studies have shown that MYO1A gene associated with pigmentation may be closely related to heat-tolerance in cattle. In this study, a novel missense mutation (NC_037332.1 g.56390345 A > G) was first detected in MYO1A in 891 individuals of 35 cattle breeds, which transformed the amino acid isoleucine into valine. The purpose of...
