Abstract

Kele pig (Sus scrofa), a semi-captive native breed in the Southwest of China, have a range of light to dark brown shades phenotype, just like the coat color of Duroc in some way, and also are well known for their good meat quality. However, Kele pigs decreased dramatically in recent years. The...

Abstract

Porcine epidemic diarrhea (PED) is a contagious viral disease in pigs, caused by the coronavirus porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV). PEDV infection results in significant mortality in piglets in unvaccinated herds. Like many others RNA viruses, PEDV has high evolutionary rate and is prone to...

Abstract

We screened, for the first time, plasmid-mediated colistin resistance mcr-3 genes among 636 Escherichia coli isolates collected from swine in South Korea. Whole-genome sequencing showed that the E. coli strain harbored the mcr-3 gene in a p17S-208 plasmid with an IncHI2-ST3 plasmid type and a size...

Abstract

Mycoplasma flocculare is genetically closely related to M. hyopneumoniae, the etiologic agent of porcine enzootic pneumonia, and is frequently isolated with this second species. In this article, we report on the development of the first multilocus sequence typing (MLST) scheme for M. flocculare,...

Abstract

Porcine astroviruses (PAstVs), are widely distributed viruses that are highly prevalent in swine herds. In this study, a novel type 4 porcine astrovirus strain (designated as PAstV4/Tianjin/2018) was identified in a fecal sample from a diarrheal piglet in Tianjin, China and its complete genomic...

Abstract

Introduction of animal group A rotavirus (RVA) gene segments into the human RVA population is a major factor shaping the genetic landscape of human RVA strains. The VP6 and NSP4 genes of 74 G/P-genotyped RVA isolates collected in Rawalpindi during 2010 were analyzed, revealing the presence of VP6...

Abstract

Asian and European wild boars were independently domesticated ca. 10,000 yr ago. Since the 17th century, Chinese breeds have been imported to Europe to improve the genetics of European animals by introgression of favorable alleles, resulting in a complex mosaic of haplotypes. To interrogate the...

Abstract

Up to date, the scarcity of publicly available complete mitochondrial sequences for European wild pigs hampers deeper understanding about the genetic changes following domestication. Here, we have assembled 26 de novo mtDNA sequences of European wild boars from next generation sequencing (NGS) data ...

Abstract

Identifying genetic basis of domestication and improvement in livestock contributes to our understanding of the role of artificial selection in shaping the genome. Here we used whole-genome sequencing and the genotyping by sequencing approach to detect artificial selection signatures and identify...

Abstract

Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) constitute a large class of functional non-coding RNAs that play important roles in many biological processes. Thousands of lncRNAs have been identified in mammals. Pig is an important farm animal and biomedical model. It is essential to create a Sus scrofa lncRNA...
