Abstract

Early-life exposure to stressors can shape the phenotype of the offspring resulting in changes that may affect their prehatch and posthatch development. This can be modeled indirectly through maternal exposure to stressors (natural model) or by offspring exposure to stress hormones (pharmacological ...

Abstract

Purpose: Canine primary closed-angle glaucoma (PCAG) is a complex disease caused by multiple genetic factors. A c.590 G >A variant in OLFML3 was recently reported to be a candidate for pectinate ligament abnormality (PLA) and PCAG in the Border Collie. We investigated the association of this...

Abstract

Background: Catastrophic fractures are among the most common cause of fatalities in racehorses. Several factors, including genetics, likely contribute to increased risk for fatal injuries. A variant in the procollagen-lysine, 2-oxoglutarate 5-dioxygenase1 gene (PLOD1 c.2032G>A) was shown to...
