Abstract

Visfatin, like insulin, induces phosphorylation of signal transduction proteins that operatate downstream of the insulin receptor. The present study is focused on detecting deletion of visfatin gene and analyzing its effect on growth traits in six Chinese cattle breeds (Nangyang, Luxi, Qinchuan,...

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

As an essential repressor, the homeobox gene Hesx1/HESX1 is required within the anterior neural plate for normal forebrain development. Mutations within the Hesx1 gene have been associated with GH deficiency or combined pituitary hormone deficiency. We detected the polymorphism of Hesx1 gene by...

Abstract

The polymorphisms of bovine retinol binding protein 4 (RBP4) gene were detected by PCR-SSCP and DNA sequencing methods. Genomic DNA samples were obtained from 818 cattle belonging to 4 Chinese indigenous breeds (Nanyang, Jiaxian, Qinchuan and Chinese Holstein). A 4-bp deletion was detected in...

Abstract

As a member of the basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) family of transcription factors, Bhlhe40 plays an important role in the regulation of adipogenesis, myogenesis and the development of the metabolic syndrome. In this study, we investigated the tissue expression patterns and differences of bovine ...

Abstract

As a zinc-finger protein, PR domain containing 16 (PRDM16) controls brown fat determination by stimulating brown fat cell production while suppressing the expression of genes for production of white fat cells; mutations in this domain are associated with myelodysplastic syndrome and leukemogenesis. ...

Abstract

Visfatin is a protein that is preferentially produced in visceral adipose tissue. Both its tissue expression and secreted plasma levels increase in parallel with obesity. Therefore, the present study is focused on detecting insertion in bovine visfatin gene and analyzing its effect on growth traits ...
