An F(2) population established by crossing a broiler male line and a layer line was used to map quantitative trait loci (QTL) affecting abdominal fat weight, abdominal fat percentage and serum cholesterol and triglyceride concentrations. Two genetic models, the line-cross and the half-sib, were applied in the QTL analysis, both using the regression interval(More)
Two functional and positional candidate genes were selected in a region of chicken chromosome 1 (GGA1), based on their biological roles, and also where several quantitative trait loci (QTL) have been mapped and associated with performance, fatness and carcass traits in chickens. The insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF1) gene has been associated with several(More)
Cinnarizin, which shows a vasodilating action improving cerebral, peripheral, and coronary blood circulation, is widely used in medical practice. One of the starting materials for the synthesis of cinnarizin is cinnamyl chloride. It is obtained from styrene and formaldehyde in the presence of acid [i, 2]. The starting materials are readily available. They(More)
