Mutation studies in different prolific sheep breeds have shown that the transforming growth factor beta super family ligands viz. the growth differentiation factor 9 (GDF9/FecG), bone morphogenetic protein 15 (BMP15/FecX) and associated type I receptors, bone morphogenetic protein receptor (BMPR1B/FecB), are major determinant of ovulation rate and(More)
The present study was designed for screening polymorphism of known fecundity genes in prolific Indian Bonpala sheep. Employing tetra-primer amplification refractory mutation system PCR, 11-point mutations of BMP1B, BMP15, and GDF9 genes of 97 Bonpala ewes were genotyped. The FecB locus of the BMPR1B gene and two loci (G1 and G4) of GDF9 gene were found to(More)
In this study, approximately 3.4 kb nucleotide sequence of caprine TLR7 (Toll-like receptor 7) gene was generated from twelve different Indian goat breeds belonging to different geographical regions. Goat TLR7 gene ORF (Open Reading Frame) was found to be 3141 nucleotides long coding for 1046 amino acids similar to sheep. The sequence analysis at nucleotide(More)
Identifying prolificacy potential and determination of fetal number during pregnancy for proper care and management of the pregnant goats bearing multiple fetuses and achieving the benefits out of multiple births are essential for sustainable goat farming. Our objectives were (1) to examine prolificacy potential in goats by using pituitary response to(More)
Data on age and body weight at breeding, parity, previous litter size, days open and some descriptive body linear traits from 389 meat-type, prolific Black Bengal goats in Tripura State of India, were collected for 3 and 1/2 years (2007 to 2010) and analyzed using logistic regression model. The objectives of the study were i) to evaluate the effect of age(More)
The birth of live heterosexual quadruplets (three females and one male) in cattle (Bos indicus) is a very rare event and hence this study was conducted to observe the chromosome constitution of the dam and the heterosexual quadruplets. The cytogenetic study revealed sex chromosome chimerism (2n = 60, XX/XY) and preponderance of female cells (XX) in the(More)
