BLAD is a hereditary disease in Holstein dairy cattle. The defective allele of CD18 gene, which is responsible for this disease, has recessive inheritance. The recessive homozygous form (BL/BL) is lethal and since carrier animals have viability, BLAD frequency increases by use of carrier bulls in Artificial Insemination (AI). BLAD carriers can be detected(More)
A total of 540 Japanese quail eggs were assigned to 9 treatments of 4 replicates to investigate the effect of in ovo injection of threonine (THR) on mucin2 (MUC2) mRNA expression and digestive enzyme activity. Treatments were (non-injected) eggs and those in ovo injected with saline (0.05 or 0.1 ml) with or without THR (5 mg/ml) in two sites (in or under(More)
Parent-of-origin-dependent (epi)genetic factors are important determinants of prenatal development that program adult phenotype. However, data on magnitude and specificity of maternal and paternal genome effects on fetal bone are lacking. We used an outbred bovine model to dissect and quantify effects of parental genomes, fetal sex, and nongenetic maternal(More)
The genotypes for Beta-Lactoglobulin (BLG) and calpastatin (CAST) were determined by Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) and restriction enzyme digestion and genotyped for calpain (CAPN) by PCR-SSCP method in an Iranian breed sheep, Kurdi. Blood samples were collected from 100 pure bred Kurdi sheep from Kurdi breeding station located in Shirvan, Mashhad. The(More)
The aim of this study was to identify the Potato Spindle Tuber Viroid (PSTVd) by Reverse Transcriptase-PCR. Among all plant diseases which are caused by viroids, PSTVd was the first viroid which is recognized by plant pathologist. Suspended potato tubers from Razavi and Northern Khorasan provinces collected and cultured. Leaves of cultured tubers were used(More)
The aim of this study was to identify the Complex Vertebral Malformation (CVM) in Iranian Holstein bulls. This disease is a hereditary recessive disorder in Holstein cattle. In total 144 blood samples were prepared from Holstein bulls from Abbas Abad Animal Breeding Center and Ferdowsi University of Mashhad's Dairy Farm in Khorasan state of Iran. Genomic(More)
