Abstract

The myostatin (GDF-8) acts as a negative regulator of muscle growth. Mutations of the gene are responsible for the double muscling phenotype in several European cattle breeds. The study was conducted to determine the polymorphisms of the bovine myostatin gene at promoter region in Nanyang cattle...

Abstract

The Pit-1 gene was studied as a candidate for genetic markers of growth traits in Chinese cattle in this study. The single-strand conformation polymorphism method was used to identify polymorphism in the Pit-1 intron 5. One single nucleotide polymorphism, Pit1I5, was found in intron 5. The...

Abstract

The genetic diversity and evolutionary origin of yellow cattle landraces has always been one of the research focuses for animal geneticist both at home and abroad. In this research, we summarize the genetic diversity and evolutionary origin of yellow cattle landraces in China from two aspects of...

AbstractFull Text

STAT5 is a key intracellular mediator of prolactin signaling and can activate transcription of milk proteins in response to prolactin. STAT5 genes are suggested to be candidate markers for milk protein yield and composition in dairy cattle. PCR-SSCP was applied to analyze the polymorphisms of two ...

AbstractFull Text

Bovine insulin-like growth factors I receptor (IGF-IR), m-calpain (CAPN II) and uncoupling protein 3 (UCP 3) loci were evaluated for associations with growth traits in Nanyang population by PCR-RFLP. Only two individuals with genotype BB were detected at IGF-IR/Taq I loci, allele A at IGF-IR/Taq I...

Abstract

The objectives of the present study were to estimate the allele and genotype frequencies of the POU1F1/HinfI polymorphisms in beef cattle belonging to four different genetic groups and to determine the effects of these polymorphisms on growth traits in cattle. The 451-bp PCR products of POU1F1 gene ...

Abstract

The polymorphisms of STAT5A gene and their correlation to milk performance traits in Chinese Holstein cattle was investigated with an aim of providing molecular maker information to facilitate the breeding efficiency. PCR-SSCP was applied to analyse the polymorphisms of two loci in STAT5A gene in...

Abstract

Polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism was used to analyse the polymorphisms of POU1F1 gene in 218 Qinchuan cattle (QQ) and Chinese Holstein cattle (HC). Results demonstrated that Hinf I polymorphisms in the 451 bp PCR product in the two populations. The frequencies of...

Abstract

The polymorphism distributions of microsatellite loci, ETH225, BM1824, BM2113 and ETH152, were detected in Chinese Holstein cattle by polymerase chain reaction and multiplex gel electrophoresis followed by silver staining. Heterozygosity (H), effective number of alleles (Ne), Shannon's information...

Abstract

PCR-RFLP was first applied to analyse the correlation of polymorphisms of POU1F1 gene and growth traits in 164 beef cattle, 4 months old (±10 days), including Qinchuan cattle, Qinchuan × Limousin cattle, Qinchuan × Red Angus and Qinchuan × German Yellow cattle. The results showed that 451 bp PCR...
