Evaluation of novel SNPs and haplotypes within the ATBF1 gene and their effects on economically important production traits in cattle

Five novel SNPs within the ATBF1 gene were found in 644 Qinchuan and Jinnan cattle for first time using 25 pairs of screening and genotyping primers and were named as AC_000175.

Genetic Variant of MYLK4 Gene and its Association with Growth Traits in Chinese Cattle

ABSTRACT As a member of MYLK family, MYLK4 gene may play a vital role in muscle development. In this study, one novel single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) was identified the bovine MYLK4 by

Identification of a Novel Polymorphism in Bovine lncRNA ADNCR Gene and Its Association with Growth Traits

The T-ARMS-PCR assay was applied to detect the genotypes of the novel SNP of bovine ADNCR gene in 1017 individuals from seven cattle breeds and validated the accuracy by DNA sequencing assay of ninety animals representing three different genotypes.

Genetic variant of SPARC gene and its association with growth traits in Chinese cattle

A DNA pool is used to detect a new SNP site that may be applied to a molecular marker of an early marker-assisted selection for early growth of beef cattle and it is found the SNP is able to increase the SPARC expression level in skeletal muscle.

Molecular basis for a new bovine model of Niemann-Pick type C disease

The identification of a novel missense variant for Niemann-Pick type C disease in Angus/Angus-cross cattle will enable improved breeding and management of this disease in at-risk populations and offer a unique opportunity to further the knowledge of human NiemANN-Picktype C disease through the potential availability of a bovine model of disease.

Relationship between an indel mutation within the SIRT4 gene and growth traits in Chinese cattle

The relationship analyses indicated that this indel was significantly associated with growth traits (p < 0.05), implying that SIRT4 significantly affects the growth traits.

Association analysis of indels in the VISFATIN gene with five cattle breeds and their growth traits.

VISFATIN is an adipose cytokine that has been proved to correlate with growth and development traits. In a previous study from our lab, two insertion/deletions (indels; including a 35-bp insertion at

The 10 bp duplication insertion/deletion in the promoter region within paired box 7 gene is associated with growth traits in cattle

It is suggested that the 10 bp duplication indel within the bovine Pax7 gene could be considered as an effective DNA molecular marker that provides valuable theoretical basis for marker-assisted selection (MAS) in beef cattle in the future.



Novel SNPs of the bovine NUCB2 gene and their association with growth traits in three native Chinese cattle breeds

Results of this study suggested that the NUCB2-gene-specific SNP may be a useful marker for growth traits in future marker-assisted selection programmes in inland Chinese cattle.

Haplotype combination of SREBP-1c gene sequence variants is associated with growth traits in cattle.

The results of this study suggest that the SREBP-1c gene possibly is a strong candidate gene that affects growth traits in the Chinese beef cattle breeding program.

A missense mutation in growth differentiation factor 9 (GDF9) is strongly associated with litter size in sheep

A missense mutation in the bioactive part of the GDF9 protein that shows strong association with litter size in NWS is identified and the commercial impact of this mutation is expected to be high.

A missense variant of the porcine melanocortin-4 receptor (MC4R) gene is associated with fatness, growth, and feed intake traits

Results support the functional significance of a pig MC4R missense mutation and suggest that comparative genomics based on model species may be equally important for application to farm animals as they are for human medicine.

The genomic organization and polymorphism analysis of the human Niemann-Pick C1 gene.

The genomic structure of NPC1 along with the 5' flanking sequence is defined and multiple single nucleotide polymorphisms in the coding and intronic sequences are identified.

The NPC1 protein: structure implies function.

Genetic evidence is provided that the NPC1 and NPC2 proteins function in concert to facilitate the intracellular transport of lipids from the lysosome to other cellular sites.

NPC1 defect results in abnormal platelet formation and function: studies in Niemann-Pick disease type C1 patients and zebrafish.

This is the first report, showing a role of NPC1 in platelet function and formation but further studies are needed to define how cholesterol storage interferes with these processes.

Evaluating associations of haplotypes with traits

The motivation of using haplotypes for the study of the genetic basis of human traits, ranging from biologic function, to statistical power advantages of haplotypes, to linkage disequilibrium fine‐mapping is reviewed.
