Effect of polymorphic variants of growth hormone (GH), β-lactoglobulin (β-LG), and Pit-1 genes on milk yield was analyzed in a Holstein herd. Genotypes of the cows for these genes were determined by polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) method. Allele frequencies were 0.884 and 0.116 for L and V variants of GH, 0.170(More)
The authors describe a large Iranian family with autosomal dominant cerebellar ataxia, which included 14 patients in four generations. We examined seven patients who had expanded CAG repeats in the CACNA1A gene with repeat instability (24 and 25 repeats). Although all patients showed cerebellar ataxia, each patient exhibited peripheral neuropathy or(More)
The aim of this study was to determine whether C34T, a common polymorphism of the adenosine monophosphate deaminase 1 gene (AMPD1), is associated with essential hypertension (EH). We hypothesize that C34T is associated with the development of EH. A case-control design was used for this study. The DNA was extracted using a commercial kit from the whole blood(More)
Seven cases of brachygnathia in a single calf crop (28 calves) were observed in an Angus herd. Two of the affected calves, 1 female and 1 male, were necropsied and anatomically described. Breeding histories and results of pedigree analysis involving the 7 affected calves indicated the cause of the defect to be genetic with the mode of inheritance that of a(More)
