Age at puberty is an important component of reproductive performance in cattle, so it is important to identify genes that contribute to the regulation of the onset of puberty and polymorphisms that explain differences between bulls. In a previous study, we found putative associations between age at puberty in Angus bulls and single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in Chromosomes 1 and X. In the present work we aimed to confirm these findings in a larger sample of Angus bulls (n = 276). Four SNPs…

Genome-wide association study for age at puberty in young Nelore bulls.
TLDR
The heritability for age at puberty shows that this trait can be improved based on traditional EBV selection and could help to predict sexual precocity in Nelore bulls with greater accuracy at younger age, which would speed up the breeding programme for this breed.
Genome-wide association study identifies loci and candidate genes for internal organ weights in Simmental beef cattle.
TLDR
A genome-wide association study for heart weight, liver weight, spleen weight, lung weight, and kidney weight in 1,217 Simmental cattle offers worthy insights into understanding the genetic mechanisms of internal organs' development, with potential application in breeding programs of Simmental beef cattle.
Association analysis of loci implied in 'buffering' epistasis.
TLDR
It is argued that the discovery and study of loci associated with buffering effects allows attacking the difficult problems of release of maintenance variance in artificial and natural selection, of quick adaptation to the environment, and of opposite signs of marker effects in different backgrounds.
Association analysis of loci implied in “buffering” epistasis
TLDR
It is argued that the discovery and study of loci associated with buffering effects allows attacking the difficult problems, among others, of release of maintenance variance in artificial and natural selection, of quick adaptation to the environment, and of opposite signs of marker effects in different backgrounds.

Finding genes for economically important traits: Brahman cattle puberty
TLDR
The results of a genome-wide association study using the BovineSNP50 chip suggest that the genes located in that region of BTA 14 play a role in pubertal development in Brahman cattle.
Association between GNRHR, LHR and IGF1 polymorphisms and timing of puberty in male Angus cattle
TLDR
The findings presented here could support the hypothesis that IGF1 is a regulator of the arrival to puberty in male calves and is involved in the events that precede and initiate puberty in bull calves.
Genome-wide association studies of female reproduction in tropically adapted beef cattle.
TLDR
Very few of the significant markers for female reproduction traits for the Brahman and Tropical Composite breeds were located in the same chromosomal regions, however, fatness and BW traits as well as serum IGF1 concentration were found to be associated with similar genome regions within and between breeds.
A genome scan for quantitative trait loci influencing carcass, post-natal growth and reproductive traits in commercial Angus cattle.
TLDR
A quantitative trait locus (QTL) scan for 14 economically important traits was performed in two commercial Angus populations using 390 microsatellites, 11 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and one duplication loci, rejecting the causality of several commercialized DNA tests.
Candidate Genes Associated with Testicular Development, Sperm Quality, and Hormone Levels of Inhibin, Luteinizing Hormone, and Insulin-Like Growth Factor 1 in Brahman Bulls1
ABSTRACT Bull fertility is an important target for genetic improvement, and early prediction using genetic markers is therefore a goal for livestock breeding. We performed genome-wide association
A single nucleotide polymorphism-derived regulatory gene network underlying puberty in 2 tropical breeds of beef cattle.
TLDR
This work aimed at developing and studying gene networks underlying cattle puberty, and employed network connectivity and centrality parameters along with a regulatory impact factor metric to identify the key transcription factors responsible for the molecular regulation of puberty.
Androgens and spermatogenesis: lessons from transgenic mouse models
TLDR
Cell-selective ablation of the androgen receptor in Sertoli cells results in a complete block in meiosis and unambiguously identifies the SC as the main cellular mediator of the effects of androgens on spermatogenesis.
Differentially Expressed miRNAs after GnRH Treatment and Their Potential Roles in FSH Regulation in Porcine Anterior Pituitary Cell
TLDR
These differentially expressed miRNAs resolved in this study provide the first guide for post-transcriptional regulation of pituitary gonadotrope FSH secretion in pig, as well as in other mammals.
