Abstract

Small-ruminant lentivirus (SRLV) infections are widespread in Poland, and circulation of subtypes A1, A12, A13, A16, A17, B1 and B2 has been documented. The aim of this study was to characterize the SRLV strains circulating in sheep and goats in mixed flocks in the Malopolska region, where the...

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

In order to study the effect of the season on the evolution of ewes' body weight (W) and body condition score (BCS) during their breeding cycle, 22 Ouled Djellal ewes, reared in an extensive system, have been managed in an accelerated lambing rate (3 lambing in 2 years). The combined weighing and...

Abstract

Serine proteases constitute the major protein content of mammalian mast cell granules and the selectivity for substrates by these proteases is of major importance for the role of mast cells in immunity. In order to address this subject, we present here the extended cleavage specificity of sheep...

AbstractFull Text

Sindh ibex (Capra aegagrus blythi) is a vulnerable subspecies of wild goat (Capra aegagrus), which faced serious population threats. In the present study, HSP70.1 gene has been partially sequenced (1344 bp) to study genetic diversity and evolutionary characteristics of Sindh ibex. In this research, ...

Abstract

Domestication fundamentally reshaped animal morphology, physiology and behaviour, offering the opportunity to investigate the molecular processes driving evolutionary change. Here we assess sheep domestication and artificial selection by comparing genome sequence from 43 modern breeds (Ovis aries)...

Abstract

The European Union has implemented breeding programmes to increase scrapie resistance in sheep. A similar approach can be applied also in goats since the K222 allele provides a level of resistance equivalent to that of ARR in sheep. The European Food Safety Authority stated that breeding for...

Abstract

Elucidating the genetic basis of fitness-related traits is a major goal of molecular ecology. Traits subject to sexual selection are particularly interesting, as non-random mate choice should deplete genetic variation and thereby their evolutionary benefits. We examined the genetic basis of three...

Abstract

JNKs (c-Jun N-terminal kinases) is a member of mitogen activated protein kinase (MAPK) family and it mainly participates in animal emergency response and the process of regulating the development of life activities and so on. In order to analyze the adaptive evolution mechanism of Tibetan sheep in...
