AbstractFull Text

Chicken Mx protein confers resistance against viral infections including avian influenza virus. Mx protein is one of the strong antiviral proteins induced by interferon system. Different alleles of chicken Mx gene have been shown to vary in their antiviral activity against influenza virus. A...

Objective: Porcine CD127 (regulatory factor Il-7 α chain) receptor flow monoclonal antibody was developed. It provided flow cytometry antibody for analyzing porcine lymphocytic subsets, especially regular T cell (Treg). It also laid foundation for further exploring the relationship between disease...

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...

AbstractFull Text

In this study, the objective was to evaluate the efficacy of protein supplementation on gastrointestinal nematode control in lambs naturally infected. Sixty weaned Ile de France and Texel crossbred lambs, with 60 days of age, were divided into three groups (n=20) according to the level of protein...

AbstractFull Text

Breeding for resistance to Salmonella Pullorum could be an effective approach to control salmonellosis in poultry. The candidate gene approach is a useful method to investigate genes that are involved in genetic resistance. This study was designed to identify single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) of ...

AbstractFull Text

Calcium channel, voltage-dependent, alpha-2/delta subunit 1 (CACNA2D1) gene plays an important role in excitation-contraction coupling in muscle-cells, glial cells and neurons. The CACNA2D1 gene may be one of the candidate genes related with some phenotypic traits due to its location in QTLs...

AbstractFull Text

Avian leukosis viruses (ALV) are retroviruses that can induce tumors in chicken. Typically, ALV is controlled through husbandry. However, genetic improvement and/or, selective breeding techniques, offer the unique possibility of true resistance. The tumor virus B (TVB) locus transcribes the...

AbstractFull Text

To remain economically profitable in coming decades of high food demands, swine and dairy agriculture have to increase their production efficiency. Genetic selection for specific trait characters such as milk production, prolificacy or animal growth is already being implemented as a mechanism to...
