Abstract

Autophagy is an important metabolic pathway in cells, and ATG8 plays an important role in the formation of autophagosomes. It is necessary to study the bioinformatical analysis of ATG8 protein. In this study, we took the data of human ATG8 homologous protein in NCBI as the research material, aiming ...

Abstract

A total of 80 samples were collected to analyze the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) and Y chromosome genetic diversity of two main Portuguese Lidia bovine populations and clarify their genetic relationships with Spanish Lidia lineages. A 521-bp D-loop fragment was sequenced in 40 animals belonging to...

AbstractFull Text

Cattle supply an important source of nutrition for humans in the world. CpG islands (CGIs) are very important and useful, as they carry functionally relevant epigenetic loci for whole genome studies. As a matter of fact, there have been no formal analyses of CGIs at the DNA sequence level in cattle ...

Abstract

Meiotic recombination between homologous chromosomes is crucial for their correct segregation into gametes and for generating diversity. We compared the frequency and distribution of MLH1 foci and RAD51 foci, synaptonemal complex (SC) length and DNA loop size in two related Bovidae species that...

Abstract

With the advance of high-throughput genotyping technologies, it is possible to estimate the pattern of linkage disequilibrium (LD) and haplotype block structure at genome wide level in farm animals. Understanding LD characteristics and haplotype blocks can provide useful information to guide genome ...

Abstract

Identification of selection signatures is one of the current endeavors of evolutionary genetics. Admixed populations may be used to infer post-admixture selection. We calculated local ancestry for Swiss Fleckvieh, a composite of Simmental (SI) and Red Holstein Friesian (RHF), to infer such signals. ...

Abstract

The Brangus breed was developed to combine the superior characteristics of both of its founder breeds, Angus and Brahman. It combines the high adaptability to tropical and subtropical environments, disease resistance, and overall hardiness of Zebu cattle with the reproductive potential and carcass...

Abstract

The MRF4 gene of sheep was electronically cloned from the MRF4 gene of cattle in the GenBank database as a probe sequence, to predict and analyze the structure of the gene and its encoded protein. The open reading frame and structural analysis of MRF4 genes in sheep were carried out, and the...

Abstract

GC content is an important feature of genomic composition, the change of which is closely related to the origin, evolution and functional variation of genes. In the study, the chromosome sequences of cattle, sheep and goat were obtained from the shared database, the GC contents of which were...

Abstract

Despite similar genome sizes, a great variability in recombination rates is observed in mammals. We used antibodies against SYCP3, MLH1 and centromeres to compare crossover frequency, position along chromosome arms and the effect of crossover interference in spermatocytes of 4 species from the...
