Anim Biotechnol 2019 Mar 19:1-8. Epub 2019 Mar 19.

a College of Animal Science and Technology , Northwest A&F University , Yangling , Shaanxi , China.

Zinc finger protein 395 (ZNF395), belonging to the Krüppel C2H2-type zinc-finger protein family, is a common transcription factor, which is involved in several cellular responses such as cell proliferation, differentiation, metabolism, and immunity, especially in the process of adipogenesis. In order to explore the insertion/deletion (indel) genetic variations of ZNF395 and evaluate their effects on sheep growth traits, a total of 1934 samples from five Chinese and two Mongolian sheep breeds were investigated.

The relationship between PLP2 gene and cashmere fiber quality of Liaoning cashmere goat was investigated. The sheep fibroblast cells were treated with exogenous cytokines and melatonin, independently, and RNA interference, RT-PCR and in situ hybridization were utilized for investigating the PLP2 gene regulation mechanism underlying the Liaoning cashmere growth. The results showed that the expression of PLP2 gene in the prosperous and degenerative stage is higher than that of the primary follicle, indicating that the PLP2 gene promotes the secondary follicle, wherein the gene is expressed only in the inner root sheath, suggesting its correlation to hair loss.

a College of Animal Science & Veterinary Medicine , Shenyang Agricultural University , Shenyang , P. R. China.

Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs), a class of non-protein conding RNAs > 200 nt in length, were thought to play critical roles in regulating the expression of protein-coding genes. Here, we identified and characterized a novel lncRNA-000133 from the secondary hair follicle (SHF) of cashmere goat with its ceRNA network analysis, as well as, its potential effects on inductive property of dermal papilla cells were evaluated through overexpression analysis. Expression analysis indicated that lncRNA-000133 had a significantly higher expression at anagen than that at telogen in SHF of Cashmere goat, suggesting that lncRNA-000133 might be involved in the reconstruction of SHF with the formation and growth of cashmere fiber.

A novel missense mutation within the domain of lysine demethylase 4D (KDM4D) gene is strongly associated with testis morphology traits in pigs.

Anim Biotechnol 2019 Jan 5:1-7. Epub 2019 Jan 5.

a College of Animal Science and Technology , Northwest A&F University , Yangling , P.R. China.

Lysine demethylase 4D (KDM4D) encodes a histone demethylase, which can influence the androgen signaling as well as play an essential role in spermatogenesis. Recently a study has shown that the mRNA of KDM4D is the key to the successful clone of the Macaque monkeys named as "Zhongzhong" and "Huahua," which greatly increased pregnancy rates of female monkey, suggesting that the KDM4D gene may be strongly associated with reproduction. Therefore, the objective of this study was to explore possible single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) within the coding region of KDM4D gene and analyze the associations with testis morphology traits of male pigs.

Recognition of deleterious non-synonymous single nucleotide polymorphism (SNPs) aids in the assessment of genetic basis of diseases and prediction of clinical phenotypes. In this study, data obtained from whole exome sequencing of Vechur cow using Illumina HiSeq 2500 platform is compared with that of crossbred cattle of Kerala. Sequence analysis of selected 18 mastitis resistant genes, evaluated the consequence of non-synonymous SNPs in these genes from both Vechur and crossbred cattle of Kerala, using sequence and structure-based computational tools such as SIFT, PROVEAN and I-MUTANT 2.

The mechanisms that dairy cattle respond to environmental stresses are very complicated. Previous research into the molecular mechanisms of mammalian heat stress has largely focused on the role of protein-coding genes and small non-coding RNAs. Recently, it has become apparent that large numbers of long non-coding RNAs transcribed from mammalian genomes play extensive roles in transcriptional regulation. Read More

Glycosylphosphatidylinositol-anchored high-density lipoprotein-binding protein 1 (GPIHBP1) is among the many candidate genes for regulating milk production traits in dairy cattle that have been identified via quantitative trait locus (QTL) mapping and genome-wide association studies (GWAS). Our previous studies confirmed that a G-to-A mutation at chr14:2553998 is the main cause of GPIHBP1-related effects on milk fat content. In this study, we discovered that GPIHBP1 may be a strong candidate gene for the regulation of milk protein traits. Read More

GTP binding protein overexpressed in skeletal muscle (GEM) is an important gene with many functions, such as regulating the rearrangement of cytoskeleton and the activity of voltage-dependent calcium channel, and GEM was regarded as a candidate gene for obesity. However, little investigation has been carried out to explore whether GEM affected the intramuscular fat (IMF) deposition of goat. To explore the role of GEM gene in goat, this gene was cloned and its tissue and temporal expression profile were detected. Read More
