Abstract

In 2014 and 2015, Macroheterocera were collected in three altitudinal transects in the Amanos mountains from 0 m up to 1104 m above sea-level. Altogether, 249 specimens were registered. Tissues from 91 selected specimens (42 Noctuidae/Erebidae, 35 Geometridae, 14 others) were submitted to DNA...

Abstract

This experiment was conducted to investigate the expression level of cholecystokinin A receptor (CCKAR) mRNA in hypothalamus and its correlation with feed efficiency traits in meat-type ducks with high and low residual feed intake. A total of 1 000 male ducks with complete pedigree information were...

Abstract

Wing venation among insects serves as an excellent model to address how diversified patterns are produced. Previous studies suggest that evolutionarily conserved Decapentaplegic (Dpp)/Bone Morphogenetic Protein (BMP) signal plays a critical role in wing vein development in the dipteran Drosophila...

Yam production is constrained by the limited availability and high cost of quality seed due to its slow vegetative propagation ratio. Micropropagation using nodal and meristem explants have been used to produce clean plantlets, with a 1:4 multiplication ratio for nodal explants and 1:1 ratio for...

Advances in genomic technologies have decreased costs associated with research and led to a better understanding of the impact of genetic variations on livestock production traits. In this context, the collection of abundant, accurate phenotypic data has often become the limiting factor in the...

CAB ReviewFull Text

The rapid drop in cost and increase in throughput of nucleic acid sequencing has provided many opportunities for aquaculture genetics and breeding. Genome-wide genetic marker data can now be readily generated in a cost-effective manner, even for species without extensive prior genomic tools. The...

CAB ReviewFull Text

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...

AbstractFull Text

Bilirubin, a tetrpyrole open chain structure, released through heme degradation pathway upon cell injury. Bilirubin at a low concentration scavenges reactive oxygen species (ROS) in vitro, thereby, reducing oxidant-mediated cellular damage and attenuating oxidant stress in vivo. The present study...
