Abstract

Lethal recessive alleles cause pre- or postnatal death in homozygous affected individuals, reducing fertility. Especially in small size domestic and wild populations, those alleles might be exposed by inbreeding, caused by matings between related parents that inherited the same recessive lethal...

Abstract

Myogenesis is accompanied by a number of changes in gene expression in mammals, and the transcriptional events that underlie these processes have not been yet fully elucidated. In this study, RNA-seq was used to comprehensively compare the transcription profiles of skeletal muscle between Tongcheng ...

Abstract

In order to assess the partial replacement of conventional feedstuff by dietary supplementation of a commercially available yeast culture Beitaide on lactation performance of sows, a total of 24 healthy pregnant sows with the same breed, weight and parity were selected 7 days before, delivery and...

AbstractFull Text

Injections of sows with pregnant mare serum gonadotrophin (PMSG) and human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG) prior to mating have been shown to improve endogenous secretions of pregnant hormones that improve and optimize the uterine environment and condition during pregnancy that eventually lead to...

Abstract

The present study aimed to determine whether developmental patterns, adiposity level and fatty-acid composition of fetuses exposed to maternal malnutrition are driven by their sex or their genotype, or both, as these may modulate the adaptive response to the intrauterine environment independently...

Abstract

Secreted frizzled-related protein 2 (SFRP2), a member of the SFRPs family, is associated with cell growth and differentiation in myogenesis. Our previous study suggested that SFRP2 was a potential target of microRNA (miRNA)-1/206, which was considered as myomiRs. To further explore the biological...

AbstractFull Text

The proteomics of pigs is developing dynamically, attracting much attention among representatives of medical and health sciences, veterinary medicine, agricultural and natural sciences. The pig has been widely studied in genetics and genomics. However, proteomic applications are still awaiting more ...

Abstract

In farm animals, restricted housing conditions or inadequate management practices during gestation may be potential stressors for the mother, with possible consequences on the growth, vitality, health and welfare of the dam and its offspring, and thus can have economic as well as ethical...

AbstractFull Text

The Iberian pig breed is characterized by higher adipogenic potential and lower lean growth than commercial breeds. Also, Iberian pigs are highly susceptible to changes in maternal nutritional level and diet composition, with growth and tissue composition being highly dependent on genetic type and...

Abstract

The current review focuses on pre- and post-natal development of intestinal immunoglobulin A (IgA) production in pig. IgA production is influenced by intrinsic genetic factors in the foetus as well as extrinsic environmental factors during the post-natal period. At birth, piglets are exposed to new ...
