The insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF1) gene was studied as a candidate gene for high prolificacy in sheep. Polymorphisms of 5′ regulatory region and all four exons of IGF1 gene were detected in Small Tail Han (n = 277), Hu (n = 58), Texel (n = 48) and Dorset (n = 46) sheep by PCR-RFLP and PCR-SSCP analysis. A microsatellite polymorphic site and a(More)
In the present study, the exon 2 and 3′ end sequence of intron 1 of BoLA-DRB3 gene of 211 Beijing Holstein cows was amplified and a uniform fragment of 284 bp was obtained. The genetic polymorphism was investigated by PCR-RFLP using two restriction endonucleases HaeIII and BstYI. Seven genotypes were detected by digesting the PCR products with HaeIII. The(More)
Single nucleotide polymorphisms of 5′ regulatory region of follicle-stimulating hormone receptor (FSHR) gene were detected in two high prolificacy sheep breeds (Small Tail Han and Hu sheep) and two low prolificacy sheep breeds (Corriedale and Chinese Merino sheep) by polymerase chain reaction-single strand conformation polymorphism (PCR-SSCP). The results(More)
BACKGROUND Microarray experimentation requires the application of complex analysis methods as well as the use of non-trivial computer technologies to manage the resultant large data sets. This, together with the proliferation of tools and techniques for microarray data analysis, makes it very challenging for a laboratory scientist to keep up-to-date with(More)
A 3.5 nm amorphous CoFeB film was sputtered on GaAs (001) wafer substrate without applying magnetic field during deposition, and a significant in-plane uniaxial magnetic anisotropy (UMA) field (Hu) of about 300 Oe could be achieved. To precisely determine the intrinsic Gilbert damping constant (α) of this film, both ferromagnetic resonance (FMR) and(More)
Interaction with a mobile device remains difficult due to inherent physical limitations. This difficulty is particularly evident for search, which requires typing. We extend the One-Search-Only search paradigm by adding a novel link-browsing scheme built on top of automatic link discovery. A prototype was built for iPhone and tested with 12 subjects. A(More)
The main aim of cellular mobile communication is to discover existing location of mobile terminals to distribute the service, which is well-known as location management. The LM involves tracking of (mobile terminal's) MT's up-to-date location, which moves freely across different cells in order to provide them services. Every MT undergoes same(More)
Goat RFRP gene was cloned and its mutations were detected in thirteen goat breeds whose reproductive seasonality and litter size were different. Then sequence characteristics were analyzed and association analyses were performed to reveal the relationships between mutations of RFRP gene and average daily sunshine duration, reproductive seasonality as well(More)
Thyroid stimulating hormone beta chain (TSHB) is mainly expressed in pituitary and its expression is closely related to photoperiodic control of seasonal reproduction in animals. In the present study, ten primer pairs have been used to clone the DNA sequence and to detect genetic mutations of goat TSHB gene. Two DNA fragments of goat TSHB gene were(More)
