Muscle growth and development from the embryonic to the adult stage of an organism consists of a series of exquisitely regulated and orchestrated changes in expression of genes leading to muscle maturation. In this study, we performed whole transcriptome profiling of adult caprine skeletal muscle derived myoblast and fused myotubes. Using Ion Torrent PGM(More)
Understanding the methanogen community structure and methanogenesis from Bubalus bubalis in India may be beneficial to methane mitigation. Our current understanding of the microbial processes leading to methane production is incomplete, and further advancement in the knowledge of methanogenesis pathways would provide means to manipulate its emission in the(More)
AIM Squamous cell carcinoma or SCC of horn in bovines (bovine horn core carcinoma) frequently observed in Bos indicus affecting almost 1% of cattle population. Freshly isolated primary epithelial cells may be closely related to the malignant epithelial cells of the tumor. Comparison of gene expression in between horn's SCC tissue and its early passage(More)
Myostatin, a negative regulator of skeletal muscle mass, is a proven candidate to modulate skeletal muscle mass through targeted gene knockdown approach. Here, we report myostatin (MSTN) knockdown in goat myoblasts stably expressing small hairpin RNA (shRNAs) against MSTN gene through lentivirus vector-mediated integration. We observed 72% (p = 0.003) and(More)
