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

Genetic trends are commonly used to verify genetic improvement; however, there are few reports on beef cattle in Mexico. Data from 1998 to 2013 from four Charolais bull breeding farms were examined to verify the genetic responses to different breeding management and selection criteria. Analysis...

Abstract

Polymorphisms in candidate genes can produce significant and favorable changes in the phenotype, and therefore are useful for the identification of the best combination of favorable variants for marker-assisted selection. In the present study, an assessment to evaluate the effect of 11 single...

Abstract

Samples from registered Charolais sire candidate bulls for breeding herds and managed in a performance test station (n=130) in Mexico were analysed in order to estimate genotypic and allelic frequencies of three single nucleotide polymorphisms associated to beef quality traits. Two Calpain gene SNP ...

Abstract

In animal production, the verification of paternity is traditionally based on blood typing system. Nowadays, the use of molecular markers has shown that it can be a valuable tool for the exact genetic identification of each individual. In this project, a panel of nine microsatellite markers from...

Abstract

Allelic and genotypic frequencies of eight markers previously associated to genetic disorders and meat quality and located in the calpain (CAPN1-4751 and CAPN1-316), calpastatin (CAST-T1), thyroglobulin (TG5), myostatin (MSTN, Q204X), argininosuccinate synthase (ASS), monophosphate synthase (UMPS)...

Abstract

Background: The Zebu cattle are represented by a diverse group of breeds in México. Traditionally these breeds have been associated with the tough beef characteristic. Validated genetic markers have the potential to be included in marker-assisted selection and management programs in order to...

Abstract

The objective of this study was to perform a genomewide association study (GWAS) for growth traits in Charolais beef cattle and to identify SNP markers and genes associated with these traits. Our study included 855 animals genotyped using 76,883 SNP from the GeneSeek Genomic Profiler Bovine HD...

Abstract

The objective of the present experiment work was to evaluate the effect of the inclusion of genomic information on the additive genetic variance of birth weight (BW) of Charolais cattle in Mexico. Variance components and heritability were estimated using four linear models. The first model was the...
