We present a proteomic dataset generated from a human serum sample and the enriched/depleted fractions obtained by seven commercial products. This report is related to the research article entitled "Comparative evaluation of seven commercial products for human serum enrichment/depletion by shotgun proteomics" [1]. All samples were analyzed by LC-MS/MS, label free quantitation using the spectral counting approach, and Gene Ontology (GO) annotation. Protein relative abundances and functions were reported...

Horizontal gene transfer (HGT), a mechanism that shares genetic material between the host and donor from separated offspring branches, has been described as a means of producing novel and beneficial phenotypes for the host organisms. In the present study, 12 HGT genes were identified from California two-spot octopus Octopus bimaculoides based on a similarity search, phylogenetic construction, gene composition analysis and PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) validation. The data collected from the HGT genes from octopus, indicating the phylogenetic incongruences, CodonW analysis, PCR products, detailed motifs and organisms used in screening...

Amino acids (AAs) constitute the largest reservoir of organic nitrogen in most marine organisms and are a major fraction of characterized carbon in marine particulate matter. AAs are also useful indicators of degradation in the marine environment. This article reports original content data of 17 individual amino acids on 47 surface sediment samples and 18 suspended particulate samples in the water column in Changjiang Estuary. Contents of amino acids in suspended particulates were much higher than that in the surface sediments...

Probiotic Bifidobacterium longum subspecies infantis ( Bifidobacterium infantis ) consumes human milk oligosaccharides (MO) and protects intestinal permeability thereby having anti-inflammatory effects (Underwood et al., 2015; Bode, 2006; Asakuma et al., 2011) [1-3]. Via the gut-liver axis, gut barrier disruption and dysbiosis lead to hepatic inflammation (Sheng et al., 2017; Jena et al., 2017) [4,5,6]. Our published data revealed that butyrate, as well as synbiotics of B. infantis in combination with MO, had protective effects against cancer-prone non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) mouse models, i...

This article presents the procedure followed to generate complete synthetic populations from the South African National Census. The populations are accurate at both household and individual level, and were generated for nine major metropolitan and provincial areas. The disaggregate description of the population is useful in a variety of modelling contexts, especially if one wants to observe or study the distributional effects of, for example, policy measures. That is, studies in which equity and equality are of concern...

RNA seq analyses were performed in granulosa cells (GCs) collected from gonadotropin treated ESR2 mutant rats. Data obtained from a null mutant with Esr2 exon 3 deletion (∆3) and another DNA binding domain (DBD) mutant with exon 4 deletion (∆4) were compared to that of wildtype (WT) rats. The raw data were analyzed using CLC genomics workbench. High quality RNA-sequencing reads were aligned to the Rattus norvegicus genome. Differentially expressed genes in ∆3 or ∆4 Esr2 -mutant GCs were identified based on the following criteria: FDR p-Value ≤0...

We provide lithostratigraphic and magnetostratigraphic data derived from a Plio-Pleistocene continental sediment sequence underlying the Altiplano plateau at La Paz, Bolivia. The record comprises six sections along the upper Río La Paz valley, totaling over one kilometre of exposure and forming a ~20-km transect oblique to the adjacent Cordillera Real. Lithostratigraphic characterization includes lithologic and stratigraphic descriptions of units and their contacts. We targeted gravel and diamicton units for paleomagnetic sampling to address gaps in the only previous magnetostratigraphic study from this area...

Although landfilling is still the most suitable method for solid waste disposal, generation of large quantity of leachate is still considered as one of the main environmental problem. Efficient treatment of leachate is required prior to final discharge. Persulfate (S2 O8 2- ) recently used for leachate oxidation, the oxidation potential of persulfate can be improved by activate and initiate sulfate radical. The current data aimed to evaluate the performance of utilizing Al2 SO4 reagent for activation of persulfate to treat landfill leachate...
