The objectives of the study were to monitor the detailed pattern for mRNA expression (RT-PCR and RPA) of IGFs, IGFR-1, IGFBPs, GHR and localization of protein (immunohistochemistry) for IGF-1 and IGFR-1 in bovine follicle classes during final maturation and different corpus luteum (CL) stages during estrous cycle and during pregnancy. A relative high expression of IGF-1 in theca interna (TI) was observed before selection (E<0.5ng/mL). In GC, mRNA expression increased after selection. In contrast, IGF-2 was mainly expressed in the TI. The IGFR-1 mRNA was present in the TI and GC with increasing levels during final development. The expression results were confirmed by localization of IGF-1 and IGFR-1 proteins in GC and TI. There is clear evidence for the local expression of IGFBPs in TI and GC compartment with clear regulatory differences. In CL, the highest mRNA expression of IGF-1, IGF-2 and IGFR-1 was observed during early luteal phase, followed by a decrease, and then by a tendency of an increase during the mid and late luteal phases of the cyclic CL. This level remained low during pregnancy. Intense immunostaining for IGFR-1 in CL was observed mainly in large luteal cells. Evidence for a mRNA for all six IGFBPs were obtained...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule.
