  • Phylogenetic Relationships of Three Italian Merino-Derived Sheep Breeds Evaluated through a Complete Mitogenome Analysis 

    Lancioni, Horivag; Di Lorenzo, Piera; Ceccobelli, Simone; Perego, Ugo A.; Miglio, Arianna; Landi, Vincenzo; Antognoni, Maria T.; Sarti, Francesca M.; Lasagna, Emiliano; Achilli, Alessandro (Public Library of Science, 2013)
    In Italy, the crisis of the wool industry triggered the necessity to reconvert the two traditional Merino-derived breeds, Gentile di Puglia and Sopravissana, to meat production, by creating the Merinizzata Italiana. The ...
  • A genome-wide analysis of the RNA-guided silencing pathway in coffee reveals insights into its regulatory mechanisms 

    Fernandes-Brum, Christiane Noronha; Marinho Rezende, Pâmela; Cherubino Ribeiro, Thales Henrique; Ricon de Oliveira, Raphael; Cunha de Sousa Cardoso, Thaís; Rodrigues do Amaral, Laurence; Souza Gomes, Matheus de; Chalfun-Junior, Antonio (Public Library of Science, 2017)
    microRNAs (miRNAs) are derived from self-complementary hairpin structures, while small-interfering RNAs (siRNAs) are derived from double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) or hairpin precursors. The core mechanism of sRNA production ...
  • The Secreted Peptide PIP1 Amplifies Immunity through Receptor-Like Kinase 7 

    Hou, Shuguo; Wang, Xin; Chen, Donghua; Yang, Xue; Wang, Mei; Turra, David; Di Pietro, Antonio; Zhang, Wei (Public Library of Science, 2014)
    In plants, innate immune responses are initiated by plasma membrane-located pattern recognition receptors (PRRs) upon recognition of elicitors, including exogenous pathogen-associated molecular patterns (PAMPs) and endogenous ...
  • A DNA 3′ Phosphatase Functions in Active DNA Demethylation in Arabidopsis 

    Martínez-Macías, M.I.; Qian, Weiqiang; Miki, Daisuke; Pontes, Olga; Liu, Yunhua; Tang, Kai; Liu, Renyi; Morales-Ruiz, T.; Ariza, Rafael R.; Roldán-Arjona, Teresa; Zhu, Jian-Kang (Cell Press, 2012)
    DNA methylation is an important epigenetic mark established by the combined actions of methylation and demethylation reactions. Plants use a base excision repair pathway for active DNA demethylation. After 5-methylcytosine ...
  • The Southwestern fringe of Europe as an important reservoir of caprine biodiversity 

    Martínez Martínez, Amparo; Gama, Luis T.; Delgado, Juan V.; Cañón, Javier; Amills, M.; Bruno de Sousa, Carolina; Ginja, Catarina; Zaragoza, P.; Manunza, A.; Landi, Vincenzo; Sevane, Natalia; BioGoat Consortium, The (BioMed Central, 2015)
    Background. Portugal and Spain, with six and 22 officially recognized caprine breeds, encompass 25 % of the European Union goat census. Many of these populations have suffered strong demographic declines because of competition ...
