Coat color is one of the major quality traits of animals, and miR-129-5p acts as an important regulator for melanin biosynthesis in mammals. In this study, real-time PCR and western blotting were used to examine the expression of miR-129-5p and its targets genes in the skin of different coat color goats. The results showed that the expression of miR-129-5p in the skin samples of Inner Mongolia cashmere goats (IMCG) was higher than that of Dazu black goat (DBG). Read More

Department of Animal Breeding, Genetics and Biostatistics, College of Veterinary and Animal Sciences, Kerala Veterinary and Animal Sciences University, Thrissur, India.

The NAD-dependent protein deacetylase, Sirtuin3 (SIRT3), plays a role in fertility by preventing the activation of reactive oxygen species (ROS). A novel study was conducted on caprine , to study its ovarian expression, explore the sequence variability in exon 7 and analyze its association with prolificacy in two native goat breeds of Kerala, Malabari and Attappady Black. The mRNA isolated from ovaries of six Malabari and Attappady Black goats were subjected to quantitative PCR (qPCR) using and as reference genes. Read More

Altrenogest affects expression of galectin-3 and fibroblast growth factor 9 in the reproductive tract of sows.

Anim Biotechnol 2020 Feb 12:1-7. Epub 2020 Feb 12.

Swine Science Division, National Institute of Animal Science, Cheonan-si, Republic of Korea.

A synthetic progestin altrenogest (ALT) is used to synchronize the estrus cycle of swine for fixed-time artificial insemination (AI) and has been shown to improve follicular development and reproductive performances in post-weaning sows. However, the effects of ALT treatment on reproductive tracts, including the ovaries, oviducts and uterus have not been yet clarified. In this study, we examined the expression of genes involved in endometrial responses in ALT-treated sows. Read More

Department of Animal Breeding and Genetics, Odisha University of Agriculture and Technology, Bhubaneswar, India.

The synthesis of heat shock protein 70 (HSP70) is temperature-dependent and its response is considered as a cellular thermometer in response to thermal stress. The variation in gene expression has been positively correlated with thermo-tolerance. Three different goat populations (Black Bengal, Ganjam and Raighar) which differ in body size, coat color and production performance were assessed for effect of thermal stress at different temperature humidity index (THI).

College of Biology and the Environment, Nanjing Forestry University, Nanjing, China.

The red-crowned crane () is one of the most endangered cranes in the world, and its wild population is still declining. To characterize the genetic resources of East Asian migratory populations, we studied the genetic variation in wild red-crowned cranes at the Yancheng reserve. Based on a partial gene sequence, 32 wild red-crowned crane samples were screened from 100 feathers with unknown sample information. Read More

The present study in sheep model was to find out the interaction of apoptotic transcripts, that is, and and pluripotency related transcripts, that is, and in ovine embryos produced at different O concentrations (20% and 5% O) to compare their developmental potential. Oxygen concentrations did not influence the maturation and cleavage rate but the percentage of morula and blastocysts was significantly more at 5% as compared to 20% O. A significant upregulated expression of and genes and significantly downregulated expression of and were observed in the blastocysts at 5% than those at 20% O. Read More

College of Fisheries and Life Science, Dalian Ocean University, Dalian, China.

The Manila clam, , is an ecologically and economically important marine bivalve species. In this study, we conducted transcriptomic sequencing of two different shell color strains (O and Z) before color appearance (uncolored juvenile clam) and pigmented shell color (colored juvenile clam) and investigated the analysis of the differential expression patterns of specific genes associated with pigmentation by RNA-seq and time course qPCR analysis. The transcription level of 16 differentially expressed genes (DEGs) related with shell color was analyzed by qRT-PCR to validate the performance of RNA-seq from Illumina sequence data where most of them were up-regulated.
