Cattle temperament is a complex trait, and molecular studies aimed at defining this trait are scarce. We used an interaction networks approach to identify new genes (interacting genes) and to estimate their effects and those of 19 dopamine- and serotonin-related genes on the temperament traits of Charolais cattle. The genes proopiomelanocortin (POMC), neuropeptide Y (NPY), solute carrier family 18, member 2 (SLC18A2) and FBJ murine osteosarcoma viral oncogene homologue (FOSFBJ) were identified… Expand
Association between temperament related traits and single nucleotide polymorphisms in the serotonin and oxytocin systems in Merino sheep
TLDR
Several SNPs in TPH2 were in strong linkage disequilibrium, and all were associated with behavioral phenotype in the nonselected sheep, and rs17196799 in HTR2A was also associated with the behavioral phenotype. Expand
A Systematic Review of Genomic Regions and Candidate Genes Underlying Behavioral Traits in Farmed Mammals and Their Link with Human Disorders
TLDR
The findings indicate that the majority of the genes identified are likely controlling animal behavioral outcomes because their biological functions as well as potentially differing allele frequencies between two breed groups (subjectively) clustered based on their temperament characteristics. Expand
Identification of candidate genes for reproductive traits in cattle using a functional interaction network approach
TLDR
The allelic frequency distributions found in two beef cattle breeds highlight the promise of further research into the effects of protein truncation and the potential of these proteins as molecular markers for semen quality. Expand
Using imputed whole-genome sequence variants to uncover candidate mutations and genes affecting milking speed and temperament in Holstein cattle.
TLDR
The association of >5.7 million imputed whole-genome sequence variants with MT and MS in 4,381 and 4,219 North American Holstein cattle is investigated and significant SNP and novel candidate genes identified contribute to a better understanding of the biological mechanisms underlying both traits in dairy cattle. Expand
Aggressive behavior in cattle is associated with a polymorphism in the MAOA gene promoter.
TLDR
Molecular mechanisms underlying aggressive behavior are primitive and similar among the subphylum Vertebrata, and recent signatures of selection associated with aggressiveness at chromosome X are mapped by comparing Lidia cattle samples with two non-specialized Spanish breeds showing tamed behavior. Expand
Influence of genetic markers on the feeding behavior of yearling bulls
TLDR
The previously reported association of two temperament-related SNPs with temperament was not confirmed in the evaluated breeds; however, the rs43696138 marker showed an effect on a feeding performance trait. Expand
Novel genes involved in the genetic architecture of temperament in Brahman cattle
TLDR
Five intronic SNPs identified in this study, are candidates to address control of bovine temperament, further investigation will probe their role in expression of this trait. Expand
Influence of temperament-related genes on live weight traits of Charolais cows
TLDR
It is investigated whether a panel of molecular markers previously associated with temperament has an effect on live growth traits and Pearson’s correlations between birth, weaning, and yearling live weight and temperament traits. Expand
Adrenergic Tone as an Intermediary in the Temperament Syndrome Associated With Flight Speed in Beef Cattle
The temperament of farm animals can influence their resilience to everyday variations within the managed production environment and has been under strong direct and indirect selection during theExpand
Influence of prenatal transportation stress-induced differential DNA methylation on the physiological control of behavior and stress response in suckling Brahman bull calves.
TLDR
Altering to behavior and stress response-related genes and canonical pathways supported previously observed elevations in temperament score and serum cortisol through weaning in the larger population of PNS calves from which bulls in this study were derived. Expand

Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in coding regions of canine dopamine- and serotonin-related genes
TLDR
A number of coding SNPs in behaviour-related genes are identified, several of which change the amino acids of the proteins, and predictions indicate that they may have a functional effect on the protein. Expand
Polymorphism in the Serotonin Receptor 2a (HTR2A) Gene as Possible Predisposal Factor for Aggressive Traits
TLDR
This is the first study to the authors' knowledge analyzing SNPs in a wide variety of genes in terms of aggression in a large sample-size non-clinical adult population, also describing a novel candidate polymorphism as predisposal to aggressive traits. Expand
Association between equine temperament and polymorphisms in dopamine D4 receptor gene
TLDR
Results suggested that the SNP in the VNTR region of the equine DRD4 gene might be related to individual differences in equine temperament. Expand
Polymorphisms and haplotypes in the bovine neuropeptide Y, growth hormone receptor, ghrelin, insulin-like growth factor 2, and uncoupling proteins 2 and 3 genes and their associations with measures of growth, performance, feed efficiency, and carcass merit in beef cattle.
TLDR
Most of the SNP that showed associations with growth, feed efficiency, and carcass merit in beef steers do not cause amino acid changes, but these SNP could be linked to other yet to be detected causative mutations or nearby QTL. Expand
[The polymorphism of bovine POMC gene and its association with the growth traits of Nanyang cattle].
TLDR
The body weight at 6- month-old and the average daily gain of 0~6-month-old were higher in Nanyang cattle with the genotype BB than with thegenotype AA (P<0.05), and three SNPs in linkage were detected in P3 locus. Expand
Effects of Variants in Proopiomelanocortin and Neuropeptide Y Genes on Growth, Carcass, and Meat Quality Traits in Rabbits
TLDR
The association analysis showed that individuals with TT genotype had a greater 84 d body weight, eviscerated weight and semi-eviscerate weight than those with GT genotype, and the findings would provide primary clues for the biological roles of POMC and NPY underlying the rabbit growth-related traits.

Genetic variation in monoamine oxidase A and analysis of association with behaviour traits in beef cattle.
TLDR
No significant association was found between this MAOA polymorphism and the behaviour-related scores analysed in the study, and in silico analysis did not deliver consistent results arguing for or against a functional impact of the studied amino acid substitution on the function of the biological protein.

TLDR
BosNet is an excellent tool for the identification of single nucleotide polymorphisms that are potentially associated with complex traits and identified five novel markers within BosNet-prioritized genes that had significant effects on different growth traits in Charolais and Brahman cattle. Expand

TLDR
The DRD2 Taq1A RFLP is a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) that causes an amino acid substitution within the 11th ankyrin repeat of ANKK1 (p.Glu713Lys), which, while unlikely to affect structural integrity, may affect substrate‐binding specificity. Expand
