Comparative genomics of Trueperella pyogenes available in the genome database reveals multidrug resistance genomic islands.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Journal of global antimicrobial resistance [J Glob Antimicrob Resist] 2022 Dec; Vol. 31, pp. 216-221. Date of Electronic Publication: 2022 Oct 06.

Abstract: Objective: An opportunistic pathogen, Trueperella pyogenes can infect cattle, buffalo, pig, goat, cat, dog, forest musk deer, etc., affecting various organs. The aim of this study was to identify the multidrug resistance genomic islands of T. pyogenes ...

Multivariate analysis of a missense variant in CREBRF reveals associations with measures of adiposity in people of Polynesian ancestries.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Genetic epidemiology [Genet Epidemiol] 2023 Feb; Vol. 47 (1), pp. 105-118. Date of Electronic Publication: 2022 Nov 09.

Abstract: The minor allele of rs373863828, a missense variant in CREB3 Regulatory Factor, is associated with several cardiometabolic phenotypes in Polynesian peoples. To better understand the variant, we tested the association of rs373863828 with a panel of corr...

Scoping review protocol of multicomponent interventions to address cardiometabolic disease risk among Pacific Islander children.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): PloS one [PLoS One] 2023 Jan 23; Vol. 18 (1), pp. e0280888. Date of Electronic Publication: 2023 Jan 23 (Print Publication: 2023).

Abstract: Introduction: Multicomponent interventions can reduce cardiometabolic disease (CMD) risk factors in childhood; however, little synthesis of the literature has taken place in the Pacific region. Pacific Islanders experience a disproportionately high pre...

PICI thieves: Molecular piracy and cooperation.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Cell host & microbe [Cell Host Microbe] 2023 Jan 11; Vol. 31 (1), pp. 3-5.

Abstract: Phage-inducible chromosomal islands (PICIs) steal structural proteins from helper phages. In two related studies, Penadés and coworkers reveal that PICIs are not parasites but mutualists. Some PICIs mobilize defense systems that restrict niche competit...

Connecting genomic islands across prokaryotic and phage genomes via protein families.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Scientific reports [Sci Rep] 2023 Jan 07; Vol. 13 (1), pp. 344. Date of Electronic Publication: 2023 Jan 07.

Abstract: Prokaryotic genomes evolve via horizontal gene transfer (HGT), mutations, and rearrangements. A noteworthy part of the HGT process is facilitated by genomic islands (GIs). While previous computational biology research has focused on developing tools to...

Can we integrate method-specific age-predictive models?: Analysis method-induced differences in detected DNA methylation status.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Forensic science international. Genetics [Forensic Sci Int Genet] 2023 Jan; Vol. 62, pp. 102805. Date of Electronic Publication: 2022 Nov 09.

Authors:

Abstract: Forensic research surrounding the use of DNA methylation (DNAm) markers to predict age suggests that accurate prediction of chronological age can be achieved with just several DNAm markers. Several age-prediction models are based on DNAm levels that ar...

Inter-comparison of chemical fingerprint and source apportionment of marine fine particles at two islands through the west and east passages of the Taiwan Island.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): The Science of the total environment [Sci Total Environ] 2022 Dec 10; Vol. 851 (Pt 2), pp. 158313. Date of Electronic Publication: 2022 Aug 28.

Abstract: In this study, the concentrations of marine fine particles (PM 2.5 ) and their chemical fingerprints were inter-compared at two islands located aside from the west and east waters of Taiwan Island and the variability of west and east passages (i.e., Ro...

Validation of a DNA methylation microarray for 285,000 CpG sites in the mouse genome.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Epigenetics [Epigenetics] 2022 Dec; Vol. 17 (12), pp. 1677-1685. Date of Electronic Publication: 2022 Mar 21.

Abstract: Mouse has been extensively used as a model organism in many studies to characterize biological pathways and drug effects and to mimic human diseases. Similar DNA sequences between both species facilitate these types of experiments. However, much less i...

The evolution of insular woodiness.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America [Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A] 2022 Sep 13; Vol. 119 (37), pp. e2208629119. Date of Electronic Publication: 2022 Sep 06.

Abstract: Insular woodiness (IW)-the evolutionary transition from herbaceousness toward woodiness on islands-is one of the most iconic features of island floras. Since pioneering work by Darwin and Wallace, a number of drivers of IW have been proposed, such as 1...

Can SGI1 family integrative mobilizable elements overcome entry exclusion exerted by IncA and IncC plasmids on IncC plasmids?

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Plasmid [Plasmid] 2022 Sep-Nov; Vol. 123-124, pp. 102654. Date of Electronic Publication: 2022 Nov 11.

Authors:

Abstract: Though IncC and IncA plasmids are compatible, they exert high level exclusion on one another. Here, the question of whether the presence of an SGI1 family element in the donor can overcome the exclusion of an IncC plasmid exerted by an IncC or IncA pla...
