CAB ReviewFull Text

Animal diseases are a significant source of lost revenue in livestock production systems. Reduction and control of diseases has traditionally been done under three management programs: eradication by test and slaughter, vaccination, and use of antibiotics. However, inadequate efficacy of vaccines...

The prediction of complex or quantitative traits from single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) genotypes has transformed livestock and plant breeding, and is also playing an increasingly important role in prediction of human disease. Genomic predictions are made using a prediction equation derived from ...

Many secondary metabolites in plants are involved in a range of plant physiological processes including abiotic stress tolerance. Major polyamine (PA) compounds including putrescine (Put), spermidine (Spd) and spermine (Spm) have structural, functional and regulatory activities that allow them to...

Western corn rootworm (Diabrotica virgifera virgifera LeConte) and northern corn rootworm (Diabrotica barberi (Smith and Lawrence)) are major pests of maize in the USA. These pests have been managed with a variety of tactics over the last century. Both Diabrotica spp. have adapted to crop rotation...

Alpha-amylase inhibitors (α-Als) belong to the family of defence proteins which impede the digestion through their action on digestive α-amylases. These inhibitors have natural roles in the control of endogenous α-amylase activity or in defence against pathogens and pests. Certain inhibitors have...
