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...

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

Background: Cattle include a large number of breeds that are characterized by marked phenotypic differences and thus constitute a valuable model to study genome evolution in response to processes such as selection and domestication. Detection of "signatures of selection" is a useful approach to...

Abstract

A new sequence-tagged site (STS) was identified within intron 26 of the bovine USP9Y gene, showing an 81-base pair insertion (g.76439_76440ins81 in sequence with GenBank accession FJ195366) able to distinguish Y2 and Y3 Bos Y haplogroups from Y1. Moreover, four Y3-specific sequence variants allow a ...

Abstract

The growth endocrine axis influences reproduction. The objectives of this study were to evaluate population genetic characteristics of SNP genotypes within genes of the GH-IGF axis in straightbred and crossbred Angus, Brahman, and Romosinuano heifers (n=650) and to test the association of these...

Abstract

The ancestry of New World cattle was investigated through the analysis of mitochondrial and Y chromosome variation in Creoles from Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Paraguay and the United States of America. Breeds that influenced the Creoles, such as Iberian native, British and Zebu, were also studied....

Abstract

Although both the publisher and the author claim that this is an " elementary " book designed to serve as an introduction to larger works, the coverage is so complete that only a specialist could detect any inadequacies or omissions. The subjects covered include the interphase nucleus (including a...

Abstract

Papers published in Pt. I of the Proceedings were abstracted in A. B. A., 23 (3). The present volume consists mainly of abstracts of the shorter papers presented at the congress, but a few, particularly those papers read at Turin after the main congress, are printed in full. The titles most likely...
