Sex differences exist in prevalence and manifestation of both diseases. We investigated sex differences respective to aging, focusing on cognitive parameters in apoE4 and apoE knockout (ko) mouse models of AD and CVD.(More)
The objective of this study was to analyze the effects of single and combined genotypes of MC4R and POU1F1 genes in Chinese well-known indigenous chicken (Langshan chicken) population. Genetic variants within MC4R gene and POU1F1 gene were screened through PCR-SSCP and DNA sequencing methods. A C/T mutation at nt 944 in MC4R gene (NC_006089.2:g. 944C>T) and(More)
Gli3 is a zinc finger transcription factor which plays a critical role in regulating animal development, metabolism and energy partitioning and thus has the potential to influence economical important traits in farm animals. In this study, we screened the complete exons of the caprine Gli3 gene using PCR-SSCP methods in 430 individuals from three goat(More)
