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»

Differential gene expression in the peripheral blood of Chinese Sanhe cattle exposed to severe cold stress

Authors: Q. Xu, Y.C. Wang, R. Liu, L.F. Brito, L. Kang, Y. Yu, D.S. Wang, H.J. Wu and A. Liu

Livestock is an important food resource for the inhabitants of cold regions, such as northern Asia and alpine regions, where agriculture is limited. In these regions, cold stress largely affects livestock production, thereby reducing the productivity and survival of animals. Despite the importance of breeding cold-tolerant ani.. Read More»

SETD5 gene variant associated with mild intellectual disability - a case report

Authors: E. Stur, L.A. Soares and I.D. Louro

The recent advent of exome sequencing has allowed for the identification of pathogenic gene variants responsible for a variety of diseases that were previously clinically diagnosed, with no underlying molecular etiology. Among these conditions, intellectual disability is a prevalent heterogeneous condition, presenting itself i.. Read More»

Polymorphisms in the melatonin receptor gene promoter and their associations with fertility characteristics in buffalo herd in Eastern Amazon

Authors: E.M. Barbosa, B.B. Souza, R.C. Guimarães, L.K.N. Silva, J.S.N. Azevedo, E.C. Gonçalves, H.F.L. Ribeiro, S.T. Rolim Filho and E. Silva Filho

Buffalo production is spreading globally because of its economic advantage. Then, it has become necessary to improve the reproductive and productive efficiency of these animals, as well as to look for genetic factors that increase this efficiency. The objectives of this study were to characterize the promoter region of the mel.. Read More»

Several human health problems have been related to the allergenic constitution of bovine milk due to the body’s immune reaction to milk proteins. It is necessary find solutions to minimize the occurrence of such reactions, given the importance of milk as a source of animal protein. The aim of this study was to evaluate t.. Read More»
