PCR-RFLP-based identification of polymorphisms in BMPR1B, GDF9 and BMP15 genes associated with litter size in Beetal and Teddy goats

  • 2019
  • Issue: 4
  • Volume: 49
M. Islam, A. Basheer, K. Javed, A.A. Anjum & I. Zahoor Page: 697 - 708

The genes BMPR1B, GDF9 and BMP15 are oocyte-derived members of the transforming growth factor-β superfamily, which is essential for follicular growth and ovulation. The aim of the current study was to determine the incidence of reported mutations in exon 3…

Genetic diversity of the 3ꞌ and 5ꞌ untranslated regions of the HSP70.1 gene between native Turkish and Holstein Friesian cattle breeds

  • 2017
  • Issue: 4
  • Volume: 47
Y. Öner, A. Keskin, H. Üstüner, D. Soysal & V. Karakaş Page: 424 - 439

Heat stress proteins are important factors in protecting cells against environmental stress. The HSP70.1 gene is one of the most important members of the heat stress protein family, which is essential for life, production and reproduction. In this study, partial…

Association of single nucleotide polymorphisms in genes coding insulin-like growth factor 1 system and milk production traits in Montbeliarde cows (Short communication)

  • 2016
  • Issue: 2
  • Volume: 46
M. Szewczuk Page: 191 - 195

The insulin-like growth factor 1 system plays a central role in the growth and development of the mammary gland. Insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF1) and insulin-like growth factor 1 receptor (IGF1R) have been proposed as candidate genes for milk production…

First-time characterization of JY-1-like sequence in goats

  • 2015
  • Issue: 2
  • Volume: 45
R. Sharma, S. Ahlawat, A. Maitra, M. Roy, S. Mandakmale & M.S. Tantia Page: 198 - 205

The JY-1 protein is oocyte specific, and is associated with folliculogenesis and early embryo development, and thus influences the chance of pregnancy. It was the first protein of maternal origin to be described for a single ovulating species, namely cattle.…

The PRNP gene polymorphism in Rough-coated Pomeranian Landrace sheep

  • 2013
  • Issue: 2
  • Volume: 43
W.S. Proskura, R. Pilarczyk, S. Borkowska, A. Marciniak, I. Szatkowska, J. Wójcik & A. Dybus Page: 174 - 180

Prion protein (PrP) is a membrane glycoprotein whose abnormal form is believed to cause a group of disorders known as transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs), which affect the brain and nervous system of both human beings and animals. The most familiar…

Polymorphism of the pig pre-implantation protein 3 (prei3) gene and its association with litter size traits

  • 2006
  • Issue: 3
  • Volume: 36
B.Y. Niu, Y.Z. Xiong, F.E. Li, C.Y. Deng, S.W. Jiang, L.Z. Ye, J. Wang, S.H. Ding and W.H. Guo Page: 209 - 214

The pre-implantation protein 3 (prei3), which might play a role in pre-implantation embryogenesis, is one of the promising candidate genes for litter size traits in pigs. In this study, a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP: T802G) in intron 6 of the…
