Long non-coding RNA NEAT1 promotes steatosis via enhancement of estrogen receptor alpha-mediated AQP7 expression in HepG2 cells

Xiaohua Fu, Jing Zhu, Lin Zhang & Jing Shu
Hepatic steatosis is one of the most important features of the pathogenesis for non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Fat deposition in liver cells can influence hepatic lipogenesis along with other metabolic pathways and further lead to the irreversible liver cirrhosis and injury. However, the underlying mechanism of steatosis remains largely unexplored. Our previous study revealed that AQP7 played an important role in liver steatosis. In this study, we determined that the transcriptional level of AQP7 was...

Supporting data for \"On the origin and evolution of RNA editing in metazoans\"

Qiye Li, Pei Zhang, Ji Li, Hao Yu, Xiaoyu Zhan, Yuanzhen Zhu, Qunfei Guo, Huishuang Tan, Nina Lundholm, Lydia Garcia, Michael D.Martin, Meritxell Antó Subirats, Yi-Hsien Su, Iñaki Ruiz-Trillo, Mark Q. Martindale, Jr-Kai Yu, M.Thomas P.Gilbert & Guojie Zhang
Extensive adenosine-to-inosine (A-to-I) editing of nuclear-transcribed RNAs is the hallmark of metazoan transcriptional regulation, and is fundamental to numerous biochemical processes. Here we explore the origin and evolution of this regulatory innovation, by quantifying its prevalence in 22 species that represent all major transitions in metazoan evolution.
Files provided in this dataset: 1. Genebody_Anno.tar.gz : Refined gene annotations of the 22 species used in this study in gene transfer format (GTF). 2. Repeat_Anno.tar.gz :...

Data from: Proximity to roads disrupts rodents’ contributions to seed dispersal services and subsequent recruitment dynamics

Wenwen Chen, Jie Zhong, Walter Carson, Zhanhui Tang, Zongqiang Xie, Shucun Sun & Youbing Zhou
1. Seed dispersal and subsequent recruitment dynamics play a crucially important role in regulating species coexistence and structuring tree diversity in diverse forests. Wildlife, which can dually shape the tree recruitment process by simultaneously functioning as natural enemies and seed dispersers, are undergoing widespread changes in population and behaviour due to the detrimental effects of expanding global road networks. However, the impact of these changes on recruitment dynamics through the alteration of seed dispersal processes...

Data from: Nitrogen addition reduced ecosystem stability regardless of its impacts on plant diversity

Jushan Liu, Xiaofei Li, Quanhui Ma, Xiang Zhang, Ying Chen, Forest Isbell & Deli Wang
1. Global environmental changes are altering ecosystem stability, sometimes by altering biodiversity. For example, by driving grassland plant species loss, nitrogen (N) addition can reduce ecosystem stability. In other cases, however, N addition may alter productivity and ecosystem stability, by increasing the dominance of particularly productive or stable species. 2. We examined how N addition affected plant diversity, productivity, and the temporal stability of productivity in an 8-year grassland experiment. We found that N addition...

Data from: The roles of morphological traits, resource variation and resource partitioning associated with the dietary niche expansion in the fish-eating bat Myotis pilosus

Yang Chang, Shengjing Song, Aoqiang Li, Yu Zhang, Zhongle Li, Yanhong Xiao, Tinglei Jiang, Jiang Feng & Aiqing Lin
Niche expansion and shifts are involved in the response and adaptation to environmental changes. However, it is unclear how niche breadth evolves and changes toward higher-quality resources. Myotis pilosus is both an insectivore and a piscivore. We examined the dietary composition and seasonality in M. pilosus and the closely related Myotis fimbriatus using next-generation DNA sequencing. We tested whether resource variation or resource partitioning help explain the dietary expansion from insects to fish in M....

Data from: Food and habitat provisions jointly determine competitive and facilitative interactions among distantly related herbivores

Duofeng Pan, Xincheng Li, Kejia De, Ling Wang, Deli Wang, Qinfeng Guo, Chao Gao, Zhiwei Zhong, Zhu Hui, Zhongbao Shen & Timothy Seastedt
1. Interactions between distantly related herbivores exert powerful influences on ecosystems, but most studies to date have only considered unidirectional effects. Few have simultaneously examined the mutual effects that vertebrate herbivores and insect herbivores have on one another. 2. We conducted a set of manipulative experiments to evaluate the potential competition and facilitation between two pairs of distantly related herbivore taxa: an insect caterpillar (Gynaephora alpherakii) and two large vertebrate herbivores, yak (Bos grunniens) and...

Data from: Climate outweighs native vs. non-native range-effects for genetics and common garden performance of a cosmopolitan weed

Christoph Rosche, Isabell Hensen, Adrian Schaar, Uzma Zehra, Marie Jasieniuk, Ragan M. Callaway, Damase P. Khasa, Mohammad M. Al-Gharaibeh, Ylva Lekberg, David U. Nagy, Robert W. Pal, Miki Okada, Karin Schrieber, Kathryn G. Turner, Susanne Lachmuth, Andrey Erst, Tomonori Tsunoda, Min Sheng, Robin Schmidt, Yanling Peng, Wenbo Luo, Yun Jäschke, Zafar A. Reshi & Manzoor A. Shah
Comparing genetic diversity, genetic differentiation and performance between native and non-native populations has advanced our knowledge of contemporary evolution and its ecological consequences. However, such between-range comparisons can be complicated by high among-population variation within native and non-native ranges. For example, native vs. non-native comparisons between small and non-representative subsets of populations for species with very large distributions have the potential to mislead because they may not sufficiently account for within-range adaptation to climatic conditions,...

Data from: Diversifying livestock promotes multidiversity and multifunctionality in managed grasslands

Ling Wang, Manuel Delgado-Baquerizo, Deli Wang, Forest Isbell, Jun Liu, Chao Feng, Jushan Liu, Zhiwei Zhong, Hui Zhu, Xia Yuan, Qing Chang & Chen Liu
Increasing plant diversity can increase ecosystem functioning,stability, and services in both natural and managed grasslands,but the effects of herbivore diversity, and especially of livestock diversity, remain underexplored. Given that managed grazing is the most extensive land use worldwide, and that land managers can readily change livestock diversity, we experimentally tested how livestock diversification (sheep, cattle, or both) influenced multidiversity (the diversity of plants, insects, soil microbes, and nematodes) and ecosystem multifunctionality (including plant biomass production,...
