Gene Annotator Tutorial

submitted by: RGD.Videos

The Gene Annotator takes a list of gene symbols, RGD IDs, GenBank accession numbers, Ensembl identifiers, and/or a chromosomal region, and retrieves annotation data from RGD. This tool will retrieve annotations from any or all ontologies used at RGD for genes and their orthologs, as well as links to additional information at other databases.

biosights: March 18, 2013 - Breaking egg symmetry

submitted by: JCB
During the first meiotic division of mammalian oocytes, the meiotic spindle and chromosomes move from the interior to the periphery of the cell. Yi et al. reveal that chromosome migration occurs in two sequential phases driven by the actin nucleators Fmn2 and the Arp2/3 complex. This biosights episode presents the paper by Yi et al. from the March 4, 2013, issue of The Journal of Cell Biology and includes an interview with senior author Rong Li (Stowers Institute for Medical Research, Kansas...

Beneficial effects of a higher-protein breakfast on the appetitive, hormonal, and neural signals controlling energy intake regulation in overweight/obese, “breakfast-skipping,” late-adolescent girls

submitted by: hurstn
Background: Breakfast skipping is a common dietary habit practiced among adolescents and is strongly associated with obesity. Objective: The objective was to examine whether a high-protein (HP) compared with a normal-protein (NP) breakfast leads to daily improvements in appetite, satiety, food motivation and reward, and evening snacking in overweight or obese breakfast-skipping girls. Design: A randomized crossover design was incorporated in which 20 girls [mean 6 SEM age: 19 6 1 y;...
