Isolation and characterization of polymorphic microsatellite markers for the chub mackerel (Scomber japonicus) and cross-species amplification in the blue mackerel (S. australasicus)

Authors: F.F. Chen, C.Y. Ma, L.P. Yan, H. Zhang, W. Wang, Y. Zhang and L.B. Ma

In this study, 10 polymorphic microsatellite markers were developed in Scomber japonicus and were examined on 30 individuals collected from the North Pacific. The number of alleles per locus ranged from 4 to 17. The observed and expected heterozygosities per locus ranged from 0.2759 to 0.8621 and from 0.43071 to 0.9177, respec.. Read More»

Association of CYP2C19*2 with hyperlipidemia in patients with the wild-type CYP2C9

Authors: K. Khalighi, G. Cheng, S. Mirabbasi, B. Khalighi, Y. Wu and W. Fan

Arachidonic acids are metabolized by cytochromes P450 (CYP450) to epoxyeicosatrienoic acids (EETs). EETs have many cardiovascular protective effects such as vasodilation, anti-hypertension, anti-inflammation, lipid-lowering effects, and favorable effects on glucose homeostasis. This study aimed to investigate whether gene poly.. Read More»

Alteration of -656(G/T) and -607(C/A) polymorphisms in interleukin-18 (IL-18) gene in house dust mite-sensitive allergic rhinitis patients in Thailand

Authors: A. Tungtrongchitr, J. Jumpasri, N. Sookrung, N. Visitsunthorn, P. Tantilipikorn, O. Piboonpocanan, N. Indrawattana, R. Tungtrongchitr and W. Chaicumpa

Allergic rhinitis (AR) is an IgE-mediated inflammation of the nasal membranes, which is naturally triggered by aeroallergens. House dust mites (HDM) are the most common inhalant allergens. Interleukin-18 (IL-18) has been established as an essential cytokine that can activate the generation of IgE. This randomized controlled st.. Read More»

Bayesian analyses of genetic parameters for growth traits in Nellore cattle raised on pasture

Authors: F.B. Lopes, J.L. Ferreira, R.B. Lobo and G.J.M. Rosa

This study was carried out to investigate (co)variance components and genetic parameters for growth traits in beef cattle using a multi-trait model by Bayesian methods. Genetic and residual (co)variances and parameters were estimated for weights at standard ages of 120 (W120), 210 (W210), 365 (W365), and 450 days (W450), and f.. Read More»

Promoter identification and analysis of key glycosphingolipid biosynthesis-globo series pathway genes in piglets

Authors: W.Y. Qin, L.N. Gan, R.W. Xia, W.H. Dong, S.Y. Sun, G.Q. Zhu,S.L. Wu and W.B. Bao

Glycosphingolipid biosynthesis-globo series pathway genes (FUT1, FUT2, ST3GAL1, HEXA, HEXB, B3GALNT1, and NAGA) play an important regulatory role in the defense against Escherichia coli F18 in piglets. In this study, we identified the transcription initiation site and promoter of this gene cluster by mined previous RNA-seq res.. Read More»

Genetic correlation and genome-wide association study (GWAS) of the length of productive life, days open, and 305-days milk yield in crossbred Holstein dairy cattle

Authors: P. Saowaphak, M. Duangjinda, S. Plaengkaeo, R. Suwannasing and W. Boonkum

In this study, we estimated the genetic parameters and identified the putative quantitative trait loci (QTL) associated with the length of productive life (LPL), days open (DO), and 305-day milk yield for the first lactation (FM305) of crossbred Holstein dairy cattle. Data comprising 4,739 records collected between 1986 and 20.. Read More»

Comparison of physical and chemical characteristics of collagen from the skin of cod (Gadus macrocephaius)

Authors: Y. Shu, H. Ren, R. Ao, W.C. Qi and Z.S. Zhang

Acid and pepsin-soluble collagen (ASC and PSC, respectively) were extracted from cod (Gadus macrocephaius) skin, and yields of 37.36 and 55.96% were obtained for ASC and PSC, respectively. The total yield of ASC and PSC was 93.92%, based on the lyophilized dry weight, which is higher than that obtained from other sources. Elec.. Read More»
