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

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

Adiponectin modulates lipid and glucose metabolism in adipose tissues and is also related to bone metabolism. Polymorphisms in the ADIPOQ gene likely have an impact on growth traits in cattle. In this study, we examined the relationship between ADIPOQ polymorphisms and body measurement parameters...

Abstract

Forkhead box A2 (Foxa2) has been recognized as one of the most potent transcriptional activators that is implicated in the control of feeding behavior and energy homeostasis. However, similar research about the effects of genetic variations of Foxa2 gene on growth traits are lacking. Therefore,...
