Abstract

Despite of favorable characteristics of high protein, low fat, and free-pollution, yak meat has intrinsically poor performance in tenderness and color, which is ever challenging yak sector. To this end, a three-way cross system was first developed for high quality beef of the Tibetan Plateau using...

Abstract

Identification of polymorphisms associated with economic traits is important for successful marker-assisted selection in cattle breeding. The family of mammalian sirtuin regulates many biological functions, such as life span extension and energy metabolism. SIRT2, a most abundant sirtuin in...

Abstract

The LIM-homeobox gene 3 (LHX3) plays an essential role in pituitary gland and nervous system development. Sequence variants (SVs) in coding and non-coding regions of LHX3 gene have an impact on LHX3 transcription and growth traits in cattle. Previously, we have identified 3 single nucleotide...

Abstract

Myocyte enhancer factor 2C (MEF2C) gene was annotated for its potential phenotypic effects on bovine stature including body dimensions and body weight. The aim of this study was the analysis of MEF2C as a candidate for bovine stature. Four SNPs including two novel SNPs were identified and the...

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

Background: Copy number variation (CNV) is an important type of genetic variation contributing to phenotypic differences among mammals and may serve as an alternative molecular marker to single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) for genome-wide association study (GWAS). Recently, GWAS analysis using CNV ...

Abstract

Adipokines play a crucial role in the regulation of energy homeostasis; however, little is known about genetic alterations in this family that may contribute to economic traits in cattle. Therefore, this study conducts transcript profiles, variations and association studies of three major...

Abstract

Viral infections can play direct or indirect roles in the etiology of the bovine mastitis. Mx dynamin-like GTPase 2 (MX2) gene is a main effector of the antiviral innate immune defense mediated by type I interferon (IFN I), which was demonstrated to confer positive antiviral responses to many...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to examine the association of cofilin2 (CFL2) gene polymorphisms with growth traits in Chinese Qinchuan cattle. Three single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) were identified in the bovine CFL2 gene using DNA sequencing and (forced) PCR-RFLP methods. These polymorphisms...

AbstractFull Text

The primary agent of mastitis is a wide spectrum of bacterial strains; however, viral-related mastitis has also been reported. The MX dynamin-like GTPase 1 (MX1) gene has been demonstrated to confer positive antiviral responses to many viruses, and may be a suitable candidate gene for the study of...
