Neuro inflammatory effects of photodegradative products of bilirubin

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5945592
PMID: 29748620
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-25684-2

[…] ed with the High Capacity cDNA Reverse Transcription Kit (Applied Biosystems, Foster City, CA, USA). For the quantitative RT-PCR in organotypic rat hippocampal slices, primers were designed using the Beacon designer 4.2 software (Premier Biosoft International, Palo Alto, CA, USA) on rat sequences available in GenBank (Table ). The reaction was performed in a final volume of 15 μL in an iQ5 Bio-Rad […]


Proteomic analysis of watery saliva secreted by white backed planthopper, Sogatella furcifera

PLoS One
PMCID: 5935387
PMID: 29727440
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0193831

[…] rlsbad, CA, USA). Total RNA of the whole insect was extracted by using TRIzol Reagent (Invitrogen).Gene-specific primers () were designed using primer3 web (version 4.0.0) ( and Beacon Designer 7.90, and the cDNA was prepared according to the instruction. The S. furcifera housekeeping gene Ribosomal protein L9 (GeneBank accession number KP735523) and Ribosomal protein L10 (Ge […]


Identification of Chemosensory Genes Based on the Transcriptomic Analysis of Six Different Chemosensory Organs in Spodoptera exigua

Front Physiol
PMCID: 5928209
PMID: 29740343
DOI: 10.3389/fphys.2018.00432

[…] H, Nanjing, China) as the manufacturer's instructions. Briefly, the reaction programs were 10 min at 95°C, 40 cycles of 95°C for 15 s and 60°C for 1 min. The qPCR primers (Table ) were designed using Beacon Designer 7.9 (PREMIER Biosoft International, CA, USA). Then, the relative expression levels of SexiGRs mRNA were calculated based on the Ct-values of target gene and two reference genes SexiGAP […]


Identification of microRNAs associated with the exogenous spermidine mediated improvement of high temperature tolerance in cucumber seedlings (Cucumis sativus L.)

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5937831
PMID: 29690862
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-018-4678-x

[…] the Step One ™ Real-time PCR System (Applied Biosystems, Singapore) using the Super Real Fluorescence Quantification Kit (SYBR Green) (FP205, Tiangen, China). The target gene primers were designed by Beacon Designer 7.9. The cucumber actin gene was used as an internal reference to normalize the qRT-PCR data.All reactions were carried out according to the manufacturer’s instructions and repeated th […]

call_split See protocol

[…] rt Tip Green qPCR SuperMix (TransGen Biotech, Beijing, China). According to a previous workflow, the normalization of each reaction threshold cycle (Ct) value was determined by pear tubulin gene [,]. Beacon Designer v7.9 was used to design specific primers of the qRT-PCR analysis [,], which are presented in . All expression data were obtained from three biological repeats. The SPSS v19.0 software […]
