Abstract

Confined animal feeding operations can facilitate the spread of genes associated with antibiotic resistance. It is not known how cattle removal from beef cattle backgrounding operation affects the persistence of antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs) in the environment. We investigated the effect of...

Abstract

There has been a great interest to identify a microbial marker that can be used to predict feed efficiency of beef cattle. Such a marker, specifically one that would allow an early identification of animals with high feed efficiency for future breeding efforts, would facilitate increasing the...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to investigate the persistent infection (PI) of bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDV) along with its coexistence between BVDV antibody titer and BVD virus in blood of Holstein dairy cows. Only large commercial farms (each contained <1000-3000 unvaccinated cows) were included. There were 11 dairy cattle herds. They included nearly 20,000...

Abstract

The mammalian Y chromosome gene families in the ampliconic region are expressed predominantly or exclusively in the testis, and their copy number variations (CNV) are significantly associated with male reproductive traits, suggesting they have important roles in spermatogenesis and testicular...

Abstract

Adipocyte differentiation-associated long noncoding RNA (ADNCR) is a newly discovered lncRNA. It plays function by targeting miR-204 to significantly regulates the expression of the target SIRT1 gene in preadipocytes both at the level of mRNA and protein, thereby inhibiting adipogenesis. The...

Abstract

Charolais cattle are one of the most important breeds for meat production worldwide; in México, its selection is mainly made by live weight traits. One strategy for mapping important genomic regions that might influence productive traits is the identification of signatures of selection. This type...

Abstract

Genomic prediction is widely used to select candidates for breeding. Size and composition of the reference population are important factors influencing prediction accuracy. In Holstein dairy cattle, large reference populations are used, but this is difficult to achieve in numerically small breeds...

Abstract

Displacement of abomasum (DA) is one of the most common and important disorders in dairy cattle. The objective of the present study was to detect the quantitative trait loci (QTL) for DA in Chinese Holstein using single-step genomic BLUP methodology. A total of 60,556 producer-recorded DA event...

Abstract

Preimplantation genomic selection using genomic estimated breeding values (GEBVs) based on single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) genotypes is expected to accelerate genetic improvement in cattle. To develop a preimplantation genomic selection system for carcass traits in Japanese Black cattle, we...

Abstract

The aim of the present study was to identify copy-number variations (CNVs) in Cinisara (CIN) and Modicana (MOD) cattle breeds on the basis of signal intensity (logR ratio) and B allele frequency of each marker, using Illumina's BovineSNP50K Genotyping BeadChip. The CNVs were detected with the...
