A novel aldo-keto reductase Tm1743 characterized from Thermotoga maritima was explored as an effective biocatalyst in chiral alcohol production. Natural Tm1743 catalyzes asymmetric reduction of ethyl 2-oxo-4-phenylbutyrate (EOPB) at high efficiency, but the production of, ethyl (S)-2-hydroxy-4-phenylbutyrate ((S)-EHPB), which is less desirable, is preferred with an enantiomeric excess (ee) value of 76.5%. Thus, altering the enantioselectivity of Tm1743 to obtain the more valuable product (R)-EHPB for angiotensin drug synthesis is highly desired...

A hypervirulent fowl adenovirus serotype 4 (FAdV-4) has caused hepatitis-hydropericardium syndrome (HHS) with mortalities that range from 30 to 80% in outbreaks across China since 2015. The FAdV-4 strain was characterized as a novel genotype based on the specific genome characteristics. However, our understanding of the dynamic distribution, tissue tropism, and pathogenesis of the novel FAdV-4 is incomplete. In this study, a new, sensitive and FAdV-4-specific real-time PCR was developed and applied to detect the dynamic distribution of the duck origin, novel FAdV-4 strain HLJDAd15 in experimentally infected special-pathogen free (SPF) chickens and ducks...

GPR133 (G protein-coupled receptor 133) plays significant roles in various physiological processes. Alternatively splicing (AS) variants of GPR133 in many species have been predicted in multiple databases, but there is no available information about the AS events of chicken GPR133 (cGPR133). In the present study, two chicken GPR133 variants, cGPR133-va and cGPR133-vb, were identified by a combination of reverse transcription PCR (RT-PCR) and rapid amplification of cDNA 5'-ends (5' RACE). Sequence analysis shows that cGPR133-va and cGPR133-vb are resulting from different AS modules and their sequences are predicted to encode two distinct putative proteins, respectively...

Previous studies from European and East Asian cohorts reported conflicting results over whether and how the frequencies of the three common alleles, ε2, ε3 and ε4, of the apolioprotein E gene (APOE), in long-lived individuals differ from those in younger age groups. This study was the first to analyse these frequencies of long-lived individuals from central China. Genotyping of APOE alleles and genotypes was carried out in 70 long-lived individuals and 204 younger controls. No difference in the frequency of any APOE allele or genotype was found between the long-lived participants and their younger controls, but the long-lived group seemed to have a higher ε4 frequency (15...

The circadian clock is reported to play a role in the ovaries in a variety of vertebrate species, including the domestic hen. However, the ovary is an organ that changes daily, and the laying hen maintains a strict follicular hierarchy. The aim of this study was to examine the spatial-temporal expression of several known canonical clock genes in the granulosa and theca layers of six hierarchy follicles. We demonstrated that the granulosa cells (GCs) of the F1-F3 follicles harbored intrinsic oscillatory mechanisms in vivo...

The aging process directly impacts on bodily functions on multiple levels, including a reduced ability to resist stress, damage and disease. Besides changes in metabolic control, the aging process coincides with the altered long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) expression, which are ≧200nt long class of non-protein coding RNAs. The majority of non-coding transcripts of mammalian organs and tissues are expressed in developmentally regulated and cell-type specific manners. Specific altered lncRNAs level has been involved in induction and maintenance of the whole human body aging with highly specific spatial andtemporal expression patterns...

Infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV) is a double-stranded RNA virus. Segment A contains two overlapping open reading frames (ORFs), which encode viral proteins VP2, VP3, VP4, and VP5. Segment B contains one ORF and encodes the viral RNA-dependent RNA polymerase, VP1. IBDV ribonucleoprotein complexes are composed of VP1, VP3, and dsRNA and play a critical role in mediating viral replication and transcription during virus life cycles. Here, we identified a cellular factor, VDAC1, which was upregulated during IBDV infection and found to mediate IBDV polymerase activity...

Sperm motility is vital to human reproduction. Malformations of sperm flagella can cause male infertility. Men with multiple morphological abnormalities of the flagella (MMAF) have abnormal spermatozoa with absent, short, coiled, bent, and/or irregular-caliber flagella, which impair sperm motility. The known human MMAF-associated genes, such as DNAH1, only account for fewer than 45% of affected individuals. Pathogenic mechanisms in the genetically unexplained MMAF remain to be elucidated. Here, we conducted genetic analyses by using whole-exome sequencing and genome-wide comparative genomic hybridization microarrays in a multi-center cohort of 30 Han Chinese men affected by MMAF...
