AbstractFull Text

Advances in high-throughput assays for genotyping single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) led to the use of dense markers for predicting genomic breeding values, called genomic selection. The accuracy of genomic predictions is determined by the size of the reference population, extent of...

AbstractFull Text

This study was conducted to assess the variation and polymorphisms at CSN3 loci on Khalkhali goats. 100 blood samples were collected from Khalkhali goats and were used in the study. Genomic DNA was extracted using DNA isolation kit for mammalian blood and the exon 4 of κ-casein gene amplified using ...

AbstractFull Text

Polymerase chain reaction-single strand conformation polymorphism (PCR-SSCP) was used in 70 goats (Pashmina and non-Pashmina) to characterize the KAP 1.3 gene, to detect the polymorphism, if any, and to determine the associations of genotypes with the mean fibre diameter (MFD) and mean fibre length ...

A study was carried out with the objective to screen Marwari, Patanwadi and Dumba sheep for the presence of the fecundity gene mutations Viz., FecXB and FecXL in bone morphogenic protein-15 gene. Blood samples were collected and DNA was extracted from 60 ewes with history of twinning. Primers were...

AbstractFull Text

Spermatogonial stem cell (SSC) holds great promise in the development of transgenics in farm animals as an alternative to the conventional method involving embryos. One of the big challenges in SSC-mediated transgenesis is the development of simpler method for isolation, purification and culture of ...

AbstractFull Text

To identify the polymorphisms in the native sheep breeds, characterization of growth hormone (GH) gene was carried out in eight breeds (Coimbatore, Kilakarsal, Madras Red, Mecheri, Nilagiri, Ramnad White, Tiruchy Black and Vembur) of Tamil Nadu. To amplify the whole GH gene, four primers that...

AbstractFull Text

Genetic variation in a part of growth hormone (GH) gene was studied in Vembur and Kilakarsal breeds of sheep. Two regions of GH gene viz., 214 bp fragment (includes part of intron 3, exon 4 and part of intron 4) and 365 bp fragment (includes part of intron 4, exon 5 and part of 3′UTR) were studied. ...

AbstractFull Text

Aim: To investigate the relationship between bacteria, catalase (CAT) and the pea aphid, Acyrthosiphon pisum, and the role of catalase in the immune responses of the pea aphid. Methods: The bacterial load in the aphid was determined by in vitro culturing and colony counting after Micrococcus luteus ...
