    • Effect of Research Impact on Emerging Camel Husbandry, Welfare and Social-Related Awareness 

      Iglesias Pastrana, Carlos; Navas González, Francisco Javier; Ciani, Elena; Barba Capote, C.J.; Delgado-Bermejo, J.V. (MDPI, 2020)
      The lack of applied scientific research on camels, despite them being recognized as production animals, compels the reorganization of emerging camel breeding systems with the aim of achieving successful camel welfare ...
    • 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 ...
