Transcriptional profiling of mammary gland in Holstein cows with extremely different milk protein and fat percentage using RNA sequencing
BackgroundRecently, RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) has rapidly emerged as a major transcriptome profiling system. Elucidation of the bovine mammary gland transcriptome by RNA-seq is essential forExpand

Identification and characterization of a novel Neospora caninum immune mapped protein 1.
Immune mapped protein 1 (IMP1) is a newly discovered protein in Eimeria maxima. It is recognized as a potential vaccine candidate against E. maxima and a highly conserved protein in apicomplexanExpand

Identification and expression pattern of two novel alternative splicing variants of EEF1D gene of dairy cattle.
Our recent genome-wide association study (GWAS) has identified 105 genome-wide significant SNPs for milk production traits. Of these, one SNP (rs109661298) for milk fat percentage is located withinExpand

Genome-wide association study for pigmentation traits in Chinese Holstein population.
With the Illumina BovineSNP50K BeadChip, we performed a genome-wide association study (GWAS) for two pigmentation traits in a Chinese Holstein population: proportion of black (PB) and teat colourExpand

Detection of functional polymorphisms influencing the promoter activity of the SAA2 gene and their association with milk production traits in Chinese Holstein cows.
Our previous RNA sequencing experiment showed that the serum amyloid A2 (SAA2) gene was one of the most promising candidates for milk protein and fat traits in dairy cattle. The SAA2 gene encodes anExpand

The meat quality of chicken is an important factor affecting the consumer’s health. It was hypothesized that n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid (n-3 PUFA) could be effectively deposited in chicken, byExpand
A post-GWAS replication study confirming the association of C1 4H8orf33 gene with milk production traits in dairy cattle
Genome-wide association studies with an Illumina Bovine50K chip have detected 105 SNPs associated with one or multiple milk production traits in the Chinese Holstein population. Of these, 38Expand
