Origin and Diversification of Meprin Proteases.
Valencia, Spain. In Plos One, 2014
While many vertebrates have the two canonical meprin-encoding genes orthologous to human MEP1A and MEP1B (which respectively encode for the proteins known as meprin α and meprin β), a single gene has been found so far in the genome of the chondrichthyan fish Callorhinchus milii, and additional meprin-encoding genes are present in some species.
Appearance, flavor, and texture attributes of pig dry-cured hams have a complex polygenic genomic architecture.
Lleida, Spain. In J Anim Sci, 2013
Several functional candidate genes involved in the biochemical processes that shape flavor and texture attributes, such as ANPEP, LIPE, LIPA, MEP1B, and MMP28, co-localized with QTL hotspots.
Effects of low progesterone on the endometrial transcriptome in cattle.
Dublin, Ireland. In Biol Reprod, 2012
Analysis of selected genes by quantitative real-time PCR and in situ hybridization revealed that expression of MEP1B, NID2, and PRSS23 increased on Day 13 compared to Day 7 (P < 0.05) and that the magnitude of increase was significantly diminished in heifers with low P4 compared to controls.
Transcriptome studies of bovine endometrium reveal molecular profiles characteristic for specific stages of estrous cycle and early pregnancy.
München, Germany. In Exp Clin Endocrinol Diabetes, 2008
Transcriptome studies of endometrial samples recovered during the pre-attachment period identified many interferon-stimulated genes, genes that are possibly involved in embryo-maternal immune modulation ( C1S, C1R, C4, SERPING1, UTMP, CD81, IFITM1, BST2), as well as genes affecting cell adhesion ( AGRN, CD81, LGALS3BP, LGALS9, GPLD1, MFGE8, and TGM2) and remodeling of the endometrium ( CLDN4, MEP1B, LGMN, MMP19, TIMP2, TGM2, MET, and EPSTI1).
