    Abstract: Male mating a second female after first mate (male remating) is a common feature in Drosophila, particularly in mass culture. On the other hand, female remating is not as frequent as that of male remating because the sperms introduced along with the semen into the spermatheca are stored there. However, the phenomena of female remating have been rep... Show More

    Abstract: MicroRNA-145 (miR-145) is considered to play key role in many cellular processes, such as proliferation, differentiation and apoptosis by inhibiting target gene expression. The transcriptional regulation of cardiovascular development requires precise spatiotemporal control of gene expression. We are beginning to understand the functions of miRNA-14... Show More
