Abstract

The present experiment compared the proximate composition, the amino acid content, and profile of the breast meat of a commercial broiler hybrid (Hybrid-Normal) vs. a broiler hybrid affected by the simultaneous presence of white striping (WS) and wooden breast (WB) myopathies (Hybrid-WSWB) vs. the...

Abstract

The use of genomic testing for selecting replacement heifers in commercial farms has recently attracted much attention. Fertility traits are among the most complex, hard to measure, and lowly heritable traits, and hence they can benefit the most from genomic testing. The objectives of this study...

Abstract

The genomic measure of inbreeding is closer to the actual inbreeding than the pedigree-based measure. However, it cannot be computed for ungenotyped animals. An estimate of genomic inbreeding comes from the diagonal of matrix H used in single-step methods. This matrix projects genomic relationships ...

Abstract

Icelandic cattle is believed to have been brought from Norway during the settlement of Iceland around AD 870-930. Previous research on genetic relationships has indicated that Icelandic cattle is most related to northern Nordic indigenous breeds. Using single nucleotide polymorphism genotype data...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to evaluate genetic diversity within and between lines at the Norwegian live poultry gene bank as well as assessing the conservation value in an international context. Eight lines including the national breed, Jærhøns, were genotyped with the 600K Affymetrix® Axiom®...

The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) of the endothelin receptor B subtype 2 (EDNRB2) gene on plumage coloration in mule ducks. Test mating (white Tsaiya × white Muscovy ducks) in combination with polymerase chain reaction-restriction...

AbstractFull Text

Toll-like receptors play an essential role in how the innate immune system reacts to pathogens. These receptors help the innate immune system recognise the antigenic structure of pathogens and initiate the inflammatory response. TLR4 is one of these receptors, and it has been identified as a...

Abstract

The effectiveness of selection is a component of many factors, which are difficult to divide at this stage and not always possible. To a large extent, it is determined by the breeding qualities of the original genotypes, in particular, of stud bulls, their number, and the degree of genetic...

Abstract

Several genes are associated with the multiple morphological abnormalities of the sperm flagella (MMAF) syndrome, including QRICH2, CFAP43, CFAP44, CFAP69, CCDC39, and AKAP4 genes. Although previous work has shown that these genes are significantly associated with male reproductive traits in...
