  • X. Zi, J.-Y. Lu, +5 authors X.-H. Wu
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Reproduction in domestic animals = Zuchthygiene
  • 1 April 2018
TLDR
This study provides insight into the transcriptional regulation of the ovaries of two distinct breeds of goats that might serve as a key resource for understanding goat fecundity. Expand
Effect of supplemetation of Zebularine and Scriptaid on efficiency of in vitro developmental competence of ovine somatic cell nuclear transferred embryos
TLDR
This study proved that 5 nmol/L Zebularine and 0.2 μmol/L Scriptaid treating with sheep donor cumulus cells and reconstructed embryos improved SCNT blastocyst rate and relieve the abnormal expression of embryonic developmental related genes. Expand
Short communication: Characterization of gene expression profiles related to yak milk protein synthesis during the lactation cycle.
TLDR
A critical role for AA and glucose transporters and insulin signaling through mTOR for regulation of yak milk protein synthesis was revealed in this study of the yak mammary gland. Expand
Characterization of transcriptional complexity during pre‐implantation development of the yak (Bos grunniens) using RNA‐Seq

  • Biology, Medicine
  • Reproduction in domestic animals = Zuchthygiene
  • 1 June 2018
TLDR
This is the first report to investigate the mechanism that regulates yak embryonic development using high-throughput sequencing, which provides a comprehensive framework of transcriptome landscapes of yak pre-implantation embryos. Expand
Effects of TLR4 overexpression on sperm quality, seminal plasma biomarkers, sperm DNA methylation and pregnancy rate in sheep.
TLDR
There was no evidence that TLR4 overexpression altered the sperm quality, seminal plasma or sperm DNA of transgenic sheep, and pregnancy rate was similar between these two groups. Expand
Transcriptional profiles of crossbred embryos derived from yak oocytes in vitro fertilized with cattle sperm
TLDR
The transcriptomes of in vitro-produced crossbred embryos of yak and cattle during pre-implantation were determined and comprehensive examinations of gene activities provided, helpful for development of assisted reproductive technology and better understanding the early maternal-fetal or maternal-embryonic dialog in inter-species crossbreeding. Expand
Identification and verification of differentially expressed genes in yak mammary tissue during the lactation cycle.
TLDR
The data indicate MYC potentially playing a central role through putative regulation of COL1A1, CD44, SPARC, FASN and GPAM as well as potentially critical genes playing a role in yak mammary tissue from colostrum to mature milk phase of lactogenesis. Expand
