Inbreeding Affects Gene Expression Differently in Two Self-Incompatible Arabidopsis lyrata Populations with Similar Levels of Inbreeding Depression.
Knowledge of which genes and pathways are affected by inbreeding may help understanding the genetic basis of inbreeding depression, the potential for purging (selection against deleterious recessive alleles), and the transition from outcrossing to se

Low-Dose, Long-Wave UV Light Does Not Affect Gene Expression of Human Mesenchymal Stem Cells.
Light is a non-invasive tool that is widely used in a range of biomedical applications. Techniques such as photopolymerization, photodegradation, and photouncaging can be used to alter the chemical and physical properties of biomaterials in the prese

Does Osmotic Stress Affect Natural Product Expression in Fungi?
The discovery of new natural products from fungi isolated from the marine environment has increased dramatically over the last few decades, leading to the identification of over 1000 new metabolites. However, most of the reported marine-derived speci

Does FACS perturb gene expression?
Fluorescence activated cell sorting is the technique most commonly used to separate primary mammary epithelial sub-populations. Many studies incorporate this technique before analyzing gene expression within specific cellular lineages. However, to ou

Erratum: Lethal gene drive selects inbreeding.
[This corrects the article DOI: 10.1093/emph/eow030.].

Lysyl oxidase genetic variants affect gene expression in cervical cancer.
Lysyl oxidase (LOX) is a copper-dependent amine oxidase that plays important roles in the homeostasis of tumors. The aim of this study was to investigate the association between LOX polymorphisms and cervical cancer, and the effect of these polymorph

SIRT1 gene polymorphisms affect the protein expression in cardiovascular diseases.
Cardiovascular disease (CVD), the leading cause of death worldwide, is related to gene-environment interactions due to epigenetic factors. SIRT1 protein and its downstream pathways are critical for both normal homeostasis and protection from CVD-indu

Does HOXA9 Gene Expression in Egyptian Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia Patients Affect Disease Progression? A Retrospective Cohort Study.
Amaç: Kronik Miyeloid Lösemi (KML) klonal bir kök hücre hastalığıdır ve BCR-ABL füzyon geni ile ilişkilidir. Hastalık tedavi edilmediği zaman, kronik evreden hızlanmış evreye ilerler ve sonunda akut lösemi ile sonuçlanır. Lösemik transformasyonda tem

Gene editing in birds takes flight.
The application of gene editing (GE) technology to create precise changes to the genome of bird species will provide new and exciting opportunities for the biomedical, agricultural and biotechnology industries, as well as providing new approaches for

Conserved gene expression in sperm reservoirs between birds and mammals in response to mating.
Spermatozoa are stored in the oviductal functional sperm reservoir in animals with internal fertilization, including zoologically distant classes such as pigs or poultry. They are held fertile in the reservoir for times ranging from a couple of days
