Novel polymorphisms in bovine CD4 and LAG-3 genes associated with somatic cell counts of clinical mastitis cows

Authors: Tahir Usman, Yachun Wang, Minyan Song1, Xiao Wang, Yichun Dong, Chao Liu, Shuxiang Wang, Yi Zhang, Wei Xiao, Ying Yu

Clinical mastitis cows normally produce clotted milk, thus the much higher somatic cells in milk are unable to be counted by routine FOSS machine. The proteins coded by CD4 and LAG-3 genes can bind to MHC class II molecules and play important roles in in-flammatory diseases. The present study was designed to investigate the ef.. Read More»

The correlation analysis of polymorphisms of Prion-Related Doppel (PRND) with prion (PRNP) alleles in Gansu Alpine Merino sheep

Authors: Yuan-zi Liu, Chun-lin Zhao, Yu-Ze Yang, Run Wu, Chuan Wang, Xue-Rui Wan1, Yan Wang

The interaction between the ovine prion protein gene (PRNP) and Doppel (PRND) gene polymorphisms is essential for understanding the role of prion proteins in scrapie. In this study, the blood genomic DNA samples of 111 Gansu Alpine Merino sheep were used to define the PRNP alleles and the haplotypes of PRND by PCR-SSCP (single.. Read More»
