Abstract

The International Equestrian Federation (FEI) ranks horses participating in dressage tests resulting in a prestigious list where equestrians would like to see their horses ranked. The main objective of this study was to analyze morphological and genealogical differences between Lusitano horses...

Abstract

Background: Sheep have developed the ability to store fat in their tails, which is a unique way of reserving energy to survive a harsh environment. However, the mechanism underlying this adaptive trait remains largely unsolved. Results: In the present study, we provide evidence for the genetic...

Abstract

The sequences of miR-23 gene family were retrieved from the miRBase database using bioinformatics methods. The position of miR-23 in the genome was determined using the Ensembl database. The miR-23 phylogenetic tree was constructed using MEGA 5.0, and then quantified using RT-qPCR. The expression...

Abstract

Prions in eukaryotes have been linked to diseases, evolutionary capacitance, large-scale genetic control and long-term memory formation. In bacteria, constructed prion-forming proteins have been described, such as the prion-forming protein recently described for Clostridium botulinum transcription...

Abstract

Central administration of corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF), a 41-amino acid peptide, is associated with anorexigenic effects across various species, with particularly potent reductions in food intake in rodents and chickens (Gallus gallus domesticus), a species for which the most is known. The...

Abstract

Surprisingly, little is known about how eco-evolutionary feedback loops affect trait dynamics within a single population. Polymorphisms of discrete alternative phenotypes present ideal test beds to investigate this, as the alternative phenotypes typically exhibit contrasting demographic rates...

Abstract

One of the most extreme examples of parasite adaptation comes from terrestrial ectoparasites exploiting marine hosts. Despite the ubiquity of such ectoparasitism and its ecological and evolutionary importance, investigations of the responses of ectoparasites to conditions encountered on their hosts ...

Abstract

In humans, advanced mast cell (MC) neoplasms are rare malignancies with a poor prognosis. Only a few preclinical models are available, and current treatment options are limited. In dogs, MC neoplasms are the most frequent malignant skin tumours. Unlike low-grade MC neoplasms, high-grade MC...

Abstract

Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS), which is caused by the PRRS virus (PRRSV), has resulted in large economic losses for the swine industry. The virus has shown remarkable genetic diversity since its discovery. In our study, we investigated mutation types in the evolution of PRRSV ...

Abstract

In the present study, cDNA sequence of PTN gene from Northeastern roe deer was successfully cloned using RT-PCR technique and molecular cloning technology. Results showed that cDNA sequence of the PTN gene was 750 base pairs, which encoded 167 amino acids. The relative molecular weight of PTN...
