Genetical genomics approaches provide a powerful tool for studying the genetic mechanisms governing variation in complex traits. By combining information on phenotypic traits, pedigree structure, molecular markers, and gene expression, such studies can be used for estimating heritability of mRNA transcript abundances, for mapping expression quantitative(More)
Several beta-lactoglobulin (BLG) polymorphisms have been described within the proximal promoter region and coding region of the caprine gene, although no genetic variants affecting the protein amino acid composition and/or expression level have been characterized so far. Binding sites for several transcription factors (TFs) are present in the BLG promoter(More)
Antibiotics have traditionally been used for growth promotion in the pork industry; however, their use in animal feed has recently been limited because of human health concerns. The intestinal microbiota plays an important role in mediating many physiological functions such as digestion and animal growth. It was hypothesized that use of antibiotics as(More)
