Divergent Evolutionary Trajectories of Two Young, Homomorphic, and Closely Related Sex Chromosome Systems

Genome Biol Evol
PMCID: 5841384
PMID: 29608717
DOI: 10.1093/gbe/evy045

[…] that are within and flank genes, because these areas contain less repetitive DNA (at least in X. tropicalis; ). We used the X. laevis genome annotation (version 9.1 primary gene models gff file; www.xenbase.org) to separately calculate nucleotide diversity (π) in each parent for coding sequence of genes (hereafter CDS), introns, 5′ and 3′ untranslated regions (hereafter UTR), 5,000-bp upstream of […]


Reference gene identification and validation for quantitative real time PCR studies in developing Xenopus laevis

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5764961
PMID: 29323148

[…] e used from previously published data,. The primers were designed to target the exon-exon region where possible to avoid genomic DNA amplification. The specificity of each primer set was checked used Xenbase Blast and by manual alignment of the small and large copy of both genes. Transcript information of genes was based on Xenopus laevis 9.1 genome primary transcripts by JGI. Primers were ordered […]


Role of the visual experience dependent nascent proteome in neuronal plasticity

PMCID: 5815848
PMID: 29412139
DOI: 10.7554/eLife.33420.040

[…] sciences-publications/rawconverter). MS2 spectra remaining after filtering were searched with the Prolucid Software () separately against three different databases: UniProt_Xenopus_laevis_01-23-2015, Xenbase_Xenopus_laevis_05-29-2014 (http://www.xenbase.org/, RRID:SCR_003280), and PHROG_07-01-2014 (). Each database was concatenated to a decoy database in which the sequence for each entry in the or […]


Improving amphibian genomic resources: a multitissue reference transcriptome of an iconic invader

PMID: 29186423
DOI: 10.1093/gigascience/gix114

[…] er, yet higher (∼20 million bp) than that produced from muscle tissue. Additionally, our assembly exhibits comparable lengths of mRNAs and CDS to those from X. tropicalis (gene build v9.0, downloaded Xenbase.org, Aug. 2017) (), albeit with a greater frequency of shorter features. This is not unexpected given that we are comparing a de novo transcriptome assembly to gene models from a genome assemb […]
