Cloning, characterization, and expression of microRNAs from the Asian malaria mosquito, Anopheles stephensi
Background microRNAs (miRNAs) are non-coding RNAs that are now recognized as a major class of gene-regulating molecules widely distributed in metozoans and plants. miRNAs have been found to play important roles in apoptosis, ...
Six novel Y chromosome genes in Anopheles mosquitoes discovered by independently sequencing males and females
(Biomed Central Ltd, 2013-04-23)
Background Y chromosomes are responsible for the initiation of male development, male fertility, and other male-related functions in diverse species. However, Y genes are rarely characterized outside a few model species ...
Translational regulation of Anopheles gambiae mRNAs in the midgut during Plasmodium falciparum infection
Background Malaria is caused by Plasmodium parasites, which are transmitted via the bites of infected Anopheline mosquitoes. Midgut invasion is a major bottleneck for Plasmodium development inside the mosquito vectors. ...
Genome Landscape and Evolutionary Plasticity of Chromosomes in Malaria Mosquitoes
Background: Nonrandom distribution of rearrangements is a common feature of eukaryotic chromosomes that is not well understood in terms of genome organization and evolution. In the major African malaria vector Anopheles ...
Integrating transcriptomic and proteomic data for accurate assembly and annotation of genomes
Complementing genome sequence with deep transcriptome and proteome data could enable more accurate assembly and annotation of newly sequenced genomes. Here, we provide a proof-of-concept of an integrated approach for ...
