Single nucleotide polymorphism discovery in rainbow trout by deep sequencing of a reduced representation library
BackgroundTo enhance capabilities for genomic analyses in rainbow trout, such as genomic selection, a large suite of polymorphic markers that are amenable to high-throughput genotyping protocols mustExpand

Identification and molecular characterization of the rainbow trout calpains (Capn1 and Capn2): their expression in muscle wasting during starvation.
Calpains are calcium regulated proteases involved in cellular functions that include muscle proteolysis both ante- and postmortem. Here, we describe the molecular characterization of the rainbowExpand

Effect of starvation on global gene expression and proteolysis in rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss)
BackgroundFast, efficiently growing animals have increased protein synthesis and/or reduced protein degradation relative to slow, inefficiently growing animals. Consequently, minimizing the energeticExpand

A MicroRNA Repertoire for Functional Genome Research in Rainbow Trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small, highly conserved, non-coding RNAs that regulate gene expression of target mRNAs through cleavage or translational inhibition. miRNAs are most often identified throughExpand

Cloning and analysis of fetal ovary microRNAs in cattle.
Ovarian folliculogenesis and early embryogenesis are complex processes, which require tightly regulated expression and interaction of a multitude of genes. Small endogenous RNA molecules, termedExpand

Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis: an insidious problem for the ruminant industry
Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis is considered as one of the most serious problems affecting the world’s ruminant industry due to its significant impact on the global economy and theExpand

RNA-Seq Identifies SNP Markers for Growth Traits in Rainbow Trout
Fast growth is an important and highly desired trait, which affects the profitability of food animal production, with feed costs accounting for the largest proportion of production costs. TraditionalExpand

Molecular characterization of muscle atrophy and proteolysis associated with spawning in rainbow trout.
Severe muscle deterioration is a physiological response to the energetic demands of fish spawning. This response represents a suitable model to study mechanisms of muscle degradation in fish whereExpand
