Comparison of the effectiveness of microsatellites and SNP panels for genetic identification, traceability and assessment of parentage in an inbred Angus herd
TLDR
The degree of information provided by SNPs for a consanguineous herd of cattle was compared with that provided by STRs and it was shown that 24 SNPs were equivalent to the ISAG minimal recommended set of 12 STRs.
Association between GNRHR, LHR and IGF1 polymorphisms and timing of puberty in male Angus cattle
TLDR
The findings presented here could support the hypothesis that IGF1 is a regulator of the arrival to puberty in male calves and is involved in the events that precede and initiate puberty in bull calves.
Association of a region of bovine chromosome 1 (BTA1) with age at puberty in Angus bulls.
TLDR
Analysis of the bovine genome revealed that the associated region contained four predicted loci that could contribute to the understanding of puberty regulation and could be useful for further identification and annotation of gene function in the context of reproduction.
Overview on HLA and DNA typing methods
TLDR
The development and application of several different DNA methods by many laboratories has resulted in that nearly every Histocompatibility and Immunogenetics laboratory performs some DNA typing to detect HLA alleles.
Effectiveness of Single‐Nucleotide Polymorphisms to Investigate Cattle Rustling
TLDR
The 32‐SNPs used are as informative as the standard bovine STR battery and hence are suitable to resolve cattle rustling investigations.
Evaluation of six single nucleotide polymorphisms for bovine traceability in the context of the argentine-chinese beef trade
TLDR
The results of the genetic characterization of four of the main Chinese cattle populations and of the principal breeds raised in Argentina and in the world suggest that these SNP markers can be successfully used as a part of an effective traceability system for the identification of cattle breed origin in the context of the Chinese meat imports and in particular in the Argentine-Chinese beef trade.
Assessing the association of single nucleotide polymorphisms in thyroglobulin gene with age of puberty in bulls
TLDR
This is the first report of an association of TG polymorphisms with age of puberty in bulls, and results suggest the importance of thyroidal regulation in bovine sexual development and arrival to puberty.
