A genome-wide association study for osteochondrosis (OC) in French Trotter horses was carried out to detect QTL using genotype data from the Illumina EquineSNP50 BeadChip assay. Analysis data came from 161 sire families of French Trotter horses with 525 progeny and family sizes ranging from 1 to 20. Genotypes were available for progeny (n = 525) and sires(More)
We used the data from a recently performed genome-wide association study using the Illumina Equine SNP50 beadchip for the detection of copy number variants (CNVs) and examined their association with recurrent laryngeal neuropathy (RLN), an important equine upper airway disease compromising performance. A total of 2797 CNVs were detected for 477 horses,(More)
Scanning tunneling microscopy and density functional theory have been used to investigate the details of O(2) dissociation leading to the formation of oxygen adatom (O(a)) pairs at terminal Ti sites. An intermediate, metastable O(a)-O(a) configuration with two nearest-neighbor O atoms is observed after O(2) dissociation at 300 K. The nearest-neighbor O(a)(More)
Scanning tunneling microscopy and density functional theory studies show that oxygen adatoms (Oa), produced during O2 exposure of reduced TiO2(110) surfaces, alter the water dissociation and recombination chemistry through two distinctive pathways. Depending on whether H2O and Oa are on the same or adjacent Ti4+ rows, Oa facilitates H2O dissociation and(More)
Combined scanning tunneling microscopy (STM), X-rays photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and density functional theory (DFT) studies have probed the bonding configurations and mobility of trimethylacetic acid (TMAA) molecules on the TiO(2)(110) surface at RT. Upon TMAA dissociation through deprotonation, two distinctly different types of stable chemisorption(More)
