Abstract

The aim of this study was to detect mutations of the nuclear factor I/X (Nfix) gene and examine the association of its polymorphisms with growth traits in cattle. Six sequence variants (SVs) including five single-nucleotide mutations and an indel with multiple alleles were detected, among which...

Abstract

Apolipoprotein A-II (APOA2) is one of the major constituents of high-density lipoprotein and plays a critical role in lipid metabolism and obesity. However, similar research for the bovine APOA2 gene is lacking. In this study, polymorphisms of the bovine APOA2 gene and its promoter region were...

Abstract

Pituitary homeobox 2 (PITX2) plays crucial roles in embryogenesis, ontogenesis, growth, and development via the Wnt/beta-catenin and POU1F1 pathways. To better understand the characteristics and genetic effects of the cattle PITX2 gene, we identified alternative PITX2 splicings, examined the...

Abstract

Whole-genome sequencing provides a powerful tool to obtain more genetic variability that could produce a range of benefits for cattle breeding industry. Nanyang (Bos indicus) and Qinchuan (Bos taurus) are two important Chinese indigenous cattle breeds with distinct phenotypes. To identify the...

Abstract

Patatin-like phospholipase domain-containing protein 3 (PNPLA3), a member of the patatin like phospholipase domain-containing (PNPLA) family, plays an important role in energy balance, fat metabolism regulation, glucose metabolism and fatty liver disease. Tetra-primer amplification refractory...

Abstract

Paired box 3 (PAX3) belongs to the PAX superfamily of transcription factors and plays essential roles in the embryogenesis and postnatal formation of limb musculature through affecting the survival of muscle progenitor cells. By genetic mapping, PAX3 gene is assigned in the interval of quantitative ...

Abstract

Background: Identification of genetic variants, including SNPs (Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms), CNVs (Copy Number Variations) and alternative splicing, within functional genes has received increasing attention in animal science research. HGF (Hepatocyte Growth Factor) is a very important growth...

Abstract

Background: Adipose tissue has long been recognized to play an extremely important role in development. In bovines, it not only serves a fundamental function but also plays a key role in the quality of beef and, consequently, has drawn much public attention. Age and sex are two key factors that...
