Single nucleotide polymorphisms in the FTO gene and their association with growth and meat quality traits in rabbits.
Fat mass and obesity associated (FTO) gene is an excellent candidate to affect the fatness and growth-related traits in pig and cattle. The aim of this study was to reveal the association between FTOExpand
Identification and Association of SNPs in TBC1D1 Gene with Growth Traits in Two Rabbit Breeds
The TBC1D1 plays a key role in body energy homeostasis by regulating the insulin-stimulated glucose uptake in skeletal muscle. The present study aimed to identify the association between geneticExpand
Gut microbiota profiling with differential tolerance against the reduced dietary fibre level in rabbit
Dietary fibre is well acknowledged to be critical in maintaining the gut homeostasis in human and other monogastric animals. As a small monogastric herbivorous animal, rabbit is much sensitive to theExpand
Rapid Genotyping of MSTN Gene Polymorphism Using High-resolution Melting for Association Study in Rabbits
The myostatin (MSTN) gene, as a negative regulator of skeletal muscle growth, has been proposed to be associated with production traits in farm animals. In the present study, a T/C variant at −125 bpExpand
Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms of NLRP12 Gene and Association with Non-specific Digestive Disorder in Rabbit
The NLRP12 (NLR family, pyrin domain containing 12) serves as a suppressor factor in the inflammatory response and protects the host against inflammation-induced damage. In the present study, weExpand
A reduced incidence of digestive disorders in rabbits is associated with allelic diversity at the TLR4 locus.
Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) plays a fundamental role in pathogen recognition and activation of host innate immunity. In this study, we detected five coding single-nucleotide polymorphisms (cSNPs) ofExpand
Expression of cathelicidins mRNA in the goat mammary gland and effect of the intramammary infusion of lipopolysaccharide on milk cathelicidin-2 concentration.
Cathelicidins are a family of antimicrobial peptides found in neutrophils and the epithelium that have broad-spectrum activity against bacteria. This study aimed to investigative the mRNA expressionExpand
Effects of Dietary Vitamin D3 Supplementation on AvBD-1 and chCATH-1 Genes Expression in Chicken
In addition to the important role in maintaining calcium homeostasis, vitamin D3 (VD3) has also been suggested to participate in the regulation of innate and adaptive immune responses in human byExpand
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
