Comparison of Y-chromosome-linked TSPY, TSPY2, and PRAMEY genes in Taurus cattle, yaks, and interspecific hybrid bulls.
Domestic yaks (Bos grunniens) and domestic Taurus cattle (Bos taurus) are closely related. An interesting phenomenon in interspecific crossings is male sterility in the F1 hybrid (yattle) and F2Expand
Transcriptomic analysis of Rongchang pig brains and livers.
Recent developments in high-throughput RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) technology have led to a dramatic impact on our understanding of the structure and expression profiles of the mammalian transcriptome.Expand
A tremendous expansion of copy number in crossbred bulls ( × ).
Crossbreeding between cattle () and yak () exhibits significant hybrid advantages in milk yield and meat production. By contrast, cattle-yak F hybrid bulls are sterile. Copy number variations (CNV)Expand
Expression of microRNAs associated with oxidative stress in the hippocampus of piglets
Oxidative stress is associated with human diseases and the developmental retardation of animals. The hippocampus is particularly vulnerable to oxidative stress. MicroRNAs (miRNAs), expressed largelyExpand
MiR-1246 is upregulated and regulates lung cell apoptosis during heat stress in feedlot cattle
Globally, heat stress seriously threatens productivity of cattle. The objective of this study was to identify novel miRNAs that regulated heat stress in feedlot cattle. Experiment was conducted underExpand
Promoter hypermethylation of PIWI/piRNA pathway genes associated with diminished pachytene piRNA production in bovine hybrid male sterility
ABSTRACT Hybrid male sterility (HMS) is a postzygotic reproductive isolation mechanism that enforces speciation. A bovine example of HMS is the yattle (also called dzo), an interspecies hybrid ofExpand
Comparison of mRNA expression from Y-chromosome X-degenerate region genes in taurine cattle, yaks and interspecific hybrid bulls.
The yattle (dzo) is an interspecific hybrid of the taurine cattle (Bos taurus) and the domestic yak (Bos grunniens). F1 hybrid yattle bulls are sterile due to spermatogenic arrest and haveExpand
Molecular Characteristics and Expression Profile of the Rheb Gene in Rongchang Piglets ( Sus scrofa )
To give some insights into the genetic functions of Rheb signaling pathway in Rongchang piglets, this study reported the identification of complete coding sequence of the Rheb gene in RongchangExpand
Molecular characterization and tissue expression profile of the Dnmts gene family in pig
Abstract DNA methyltransferases (Dnmts) comprise a family of proteins which involved in the establishment and maintenance of DNA methylation patterns. In pig, the molecular characterization andExpand
