Abstract

Cattle have been invaluable for the transition of human society from nomadic hunter-gatherers to sedentary farming communities throughout much of Europe, Asia and Africa since the earliest domestication of cattle more than 10,000 years ago. Although current understanding of relationships among...

Abstract

With its vast territory and complex natural environment, China boasts rich cattle genetic resources. To gain the further insight into the genetic diversity and paternal origins of Chinese cattle, we analyzed the polymorphism of Y-SNPs (UTY19 and ZFY10) and Y-STRs (INRA189 and BM861) in 34 Chinese ...

AbstractFull Text

Cattle are an important livestock species for human life, but certain breeds are at risk of extinction. Maintaining genetic diversity plays an important role in sustainable breeding and conservation programmes in farm animals. The aim of this study was to determine genetic diversity among five...

Abstract

Indigenous cattle of India belong to the species, Bos indicus and they possess various adaptability and production traits. However, little is known about the genetic diversity and origin of these breeds. To investigate the status, we sequenced and analyzed the whole mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) of...

Abstract

The persistently high prevalence of many cattle diseases necessitates consideration of other mitigation strategies, one of which could be animal breeding. Although low heritability, which is a general characteristic of many cattle health traits, is often cited as a reason why breeding strategies...

AbstractFull Text

Toll-like receptor 5 is involved in innate immune responses that are initiated by host pattern recognition receptors (PRRs), which recognize molecular structures of conserved pathogen-associated molecular patterns (PAMPs) expressed by microorganisms especially bacteria. In this study, we sequenced...

Abstract

The rearrangement of the transfection (RET) gene, which mediates the functions of the ganglion in the gastrointestinal tract, plays an important role in the development of the gastrointestinal nervous system. Therefore, the RET gene is a potential factor influencing animal body measurement. The aim ...

Abstract

Chinese indigenous cattle exhibit abundant genetic resources and extensive gene pool, with 53 indigenous breeds generally classified into northern cattle breeds, central cattle breeds, and southern cattle breeds. To determine the population genetic diversity and signatures of selection of Chinese...

Abstract

Copy number variation (CNV) related to complex traits, such as disease and quantitative phenotype, is considered an important and wealthy source of genetic and phenotypic diversity. It suggests that the copy number variation of function gene maybe leads to the phenotypic changes. Kupple like factor ...
