Abstract

Haemophilus parasuis (Hps) is a major bacterial pathogen in pigs that is prevalent in many countries worldwide. It can easily parasitize the upper respiratory tract of newborn piglets through contact transmission. Under certain conditions, Hps infection leads to systematic inflammations, in which...

Abstract

By many accounts, CRISPR gene-editing technology is revolutionizing biotechnology. It has been hailed as a scientific game changer and is being adopted at a break-neck pace. This hasty adoption has left little time for ethical reflection, and so this paper aims to begin filling that gap by...

Abstract

Cauliflower (Brassica oleracea L. var. botrytis L.) is continually being improved to increase sustainability of production, enhance nutritional quality, and reduce waste. Development of resistances against abiotic (high temperature and rainfall) and biotic stresses (diseases and insects) is...

Abstract

Root-knot nematodes (RKNs) can severely damage crops, including peppers, worldwide. The application of resistance genes identified in the Capsicum annuum genome may represent a safe and economically relevant strategy for controlling RKNs. Among the Me genes (Me1, Me3, Me7, and N) that have been...

Abstract

The present study in the 5′ upstream region of TLR4 gene revealed four Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) in Vrindavani and Tharparkar cattle. The polymorphic information content (PIC), heterozygosity and allelic diversity values were low to moderate for these SNPs. In Vrindavani cattle, one...

Abstract

Viral infections can play direct or indirect roles in the etiology of the bovine mastitis. Mx dynamin-like GTPase 2 (MX2) gene is a main effector of the antiviral innate immune defense mediated by type I interferon (IFN I), which was demonstrated to confer positive antiviral responses to many...

AbstractFull Text

TLR-4 is an important candidate gene, which affects the host disease resistance. Its role in pathogen recognition and subsequent initiation of the inflammatory and immune responses makes it a suitable candidate gene for enhancing disease resistance in dairy animals. TLR-4 gene also provides an...

AbstractFull Text

A new breeding value estimation for mastitis resistance has been implemented in the Italian Holstein dairy genetic evaluation. This breeding value uses indicators derived from test-day somatic cell counts (SCC) in order to predict the breeding value for resistance to mastitis occurrence. The...

Abstract

Targeted gene modification is a novel intervention strategy to increase disease resistance more quickly than traditional animal breeding. Human lysozyme, a natural, non-specific immune factor, participates in innate immunity, exerts a wide range of antimicrobial activities against pathogens, and...
