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

This study used qRT-PCR to examine variation in the expression of 13 myogenes during muscle development in four prenatal periods (21, 40, 70 and 90 days post-insemination) in commercial (the three-way Duroc, Landrace and Large-White cross) and local Piau pig breeds that differ in muscle mass. There ...

AbstractFull Text

In recent years, the availability of phenotypic records and genomic data for cattle and the application of genomic tools revealed haplotypes affecting fertility and prenatal death. This study reports the identification of a new haplotype associated with calf survival in the Holstein population....

Cover for Prenatal and postnatal growth in mammals.

This chapter discusses the concept of growth during the different phases of the prenatal and postnatal development in mammals. Included are: problems of describing growth, sequential growth targets, changes in proportion during growth, functional units, and tissue proportions: breed and slaughter...

Abstract

We compared the effects of aversive and gentle handling in late pregnant ewes on fearfulness, heart rate variability and spatial learning in lambs. Twenty-four Norwegian-Dala ewes were studied. Ewes were subjected to gentle (i.e. soft talking and calm behavior) or aversive handling (i.e. swift...

AbstractFull Text

The objectives of the present study were to gather data on the prenatal development of Turkish cats (the Angora and Van cats) and examine the effects of the breed on prenatal development. Three Angora and four Van cats, ranging in age from 3 to 4 years, were used in the present study. Depending on...

Abstract

Consequences of low (mean 28.0 kg, n=77) and high (mean 38.4 kg, n=77) birthweight followed by slow (mean 548 g/day, n=75) or rapid (mean 859 g/day, n=79) growth to weaning for feedlot growth, intake and efficiency from 26 to 30 months of age were determined in Wagyu × Hereford (n=81) and...

Abstract

Cattle sired by Piedmontese or Wagyu bulls were bred and grown within pasture-based nutritional systems followed by feedlot finishing. Effects of low (mean 28.6 kg, n=120) and high (38.8 kg, n=120) birthweight followed by slow (mean 554 g/day, n=119) or rapid (875 g/day, n=121) growth to weaning on ...

Abstract

Fascin homologue 1 (FSCN1) has established roles in cell adhesion, motility, and cell-cell interactions. Our LongSAGE analysis suggested that FSCN1 was potentially differentially expressed in prenatal pig skeletal muscle. We have cloned the genomic DNA and mRNA sequence of FSCN1 gene and mapped it...
