A dominantly inherited syndrome associated with hypopigmentation, heterochromia irides, colobomatous eyes and bilateral hearing loss has been ascertained in Fleckvieh cattle (German White Fleckvieh syndrome). This syndrome has been mapped to bovine chromosome (BTA) 22 using a genome-wide association study with the bovine high density single nucleotide(More)
The nuclear proteins which act synergistically with the glucocorticoid receptor to induce transcription of the tyrosine aminotransferase gene include factors recognizing the CACCC element. We have purified and characterized the proteins from rat liver nuclei which bind to the CACCC motif in the glucocorticoid-inducible enhancer of the gene. Three(More)
A congenital unilateral cleft lip and jaw in association with campylognathia to the opposite side was identified in a family of Vorderwald×Montbéliarde cattle. Clinical examination, radiography and computed tomography revealed similar types and degrees of orofacial abnormality in three affected animals from different farms. Digital radiographs and computed(More)
We characterized and purified a protein from rat liver which specifically binds to a DNA motif present in a liver-specific enhancer of the rat tyrosine aminotransferase (TAT) gene, when offered as single-stranded DNA. Binding is highly sequence-specific and coincides with a region known to be essential for function of the enhancer. Microsequencing revealed(More)
The objective of this study was to demonstrate that bovine neonatal pancytopenia (BNP) can be prevented when intake of maternal colostrum is prevented in a dairy farm with verified BNP cases. A group of 30 female calves was fed with a colostrum substitute instead of maternal colostrum (group A) whereas the control group of 30 female calves was fed with the(More)
