Abstract

Background: Although genome-wide association and genomic selection studies have primarily focused on additive effects, dominance and imprinting effects play an important role in mammalian biology and development. The degree to which these non-additive genetic effects contribute to phenotypic...

Abstract

POU5F1 is a transcription factor and master regulator of cell pluripotency with indispensable roles in early embryo development and cell lineage specification. The role of embryonic POU5F1 in blastocyst formation and cell lineage specification differs between mammalian species but remains...

Abstract

The prion hypothesis proposes a causal relationship between the misfolded prion protein (PrPSc) molecular entity and the disease transmissible spongiform encephalopathy (TSE). Variations in the conformation of PrPSc are associated with different forms of TSE and different risks to animal and human...

Abstract

Serotonin receptors (5-HTR) are present in the mammary tissue of mouse, humans, cows, and rats. In these species, serotonin is important for the mammary gland function and lactation performance. The mammary gland expression of 5-HTR in small dairy ruminants has yet to be described. In the present...

Abstract

Genomic imprinting is a complex epigenetic modification process in which imprinted genes are expressed in a single gene pattern. Most of the imprinted genes are expressed in the placenta of animals. They promote pregnancy and fetal development by regulating placental growth and transport capacity. ...

Abstract

Influenza D virus (IDV) was first reported in 2011 in swine in Oklahoma and consequently found in cattle, sheep, and goats across North America and Eurasia. Cattle have been proposed as the natural reservoir. In this study, we developed and validated a MAb-based competitive ELISA for the detection...

Abstract

East Coast fever (ECF) caused by Theileria parva kills cattle in East, Central and Southern Africa leading to significant economic losses. Vaccination is used as a control strategy against ECF and is presently dependent on deliberate infection with live sporozoites and simultaneous treatment with a ...

AbstractFull Text

Genetic modification in livestock species is almost 30 years old but many technical issues limited its use. The earlier methods - pronuclear injection and viral integration had several problems including random integration, silencing, low efficiency, inefficient gene expression regulation etc. With ...

Abstract

The purpose of our study was to evaluate the prevalence of Toxoplasma gondii infection in autochthonous Carpathian buffaloes from northwestern Romania by serology, PCR techniques, and mouse bioassay. Agreement between MAT and ELISA, correlation between indirect and direct detection methods, and...

Abstract

In livestock industries, one sex is usually preferred because of the impact on the production (e.g. milk from cows, eggs from laying hens). Furthermore, in pig production, the male-specific boar taint is a big hurdle for consumer acceptance. Consequently, a shift in the ratio towards the desired...
