Gene Expression and Carcass Traits Are Different between Different Quality Grade Groups in Red-Faced Hereford Steers.

Animals (Basel) 2021 Jun 27;11(7). Epub 2021 Jun 27.

Department of Animal and Range Sciences, Montana State University, Bozeman, MT 97071, USA.

Fat deposition is important to carcass value and some palatability characteristics. Carcasses with higher USDA quality grades produce more value for producers and processors in the US system and are more likely to have greater eating satisfaction. Using genomics to identify genes impacting marbling deposition provides insight into muscle biochemistry that may lead to ways to better predict fat deposition, especially marbling and thus quality grade.

Impact of Extraction Method on the Detection of Quality Biomarkers in Normal vs. DFD Meat.

Foods 2021 May 15;10(5). Epub 2021 May 15.

Área de Sistemas de Producción Animal, Servicio Regional de Investigación y Desarrollo Agroalimentario (SERIDA), Ctra. AS-267, PK 19, 33300 Villaviciosa, Asturias, Spain.

The objective of this work was to demonstrate how the extraction method affects the reliability of biomarker detection and how this detection depends on the biomarker location within the cell compartment. Different extraction methods were used to study the sarcoplasmic and myofibrillar fractions of the muscle of young bulls of the Asturiana de los Valles breed in two quality grades, standard (Control) or dark, firm, and dry (DFD) meat. Protein extractability and the expression of some of the main meat quality biomarkers-oxidative status (lipoperoxidation (LPO) and catalase activity (CAT)), proteome (SDS-PAGE electrophoretic pattern), and cell stress protein (Hsp70)-were analyzed.

Key Laboratory of Veterinary Pharmaceutical Development, Ministry of Agricultural and Rural Affairs, Lanzhou Institute of Husbandry, Pharmaceutical Sciences of Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences, Lanzhou, 730050, People's Republic of China.

To identify differentially expressed proteins associated with energy metabolism and tenderness during the postmortem aging of yak longissimus lumborum muscle samples, we collected tissue samples from yaks raised at different altitudes. At 12 h post-slaughter, we identified 290 differentially expressed proteins (DEPs) in these samples, whereas 436 such DEPs were detected after 72 h. Identified DEPs were clustered into four main functional categories: cell structural proteins, glycogen metabolic proteins, energy reserve metabolic proteins, and cellular polysaccharide metabolic proteins.

Identification and co-expression analysis of long noncoding RNAs and mRNAs involved in the deposition of intramuscular fat in Aohan fine-wool sheep.

BMC Genomics 2021 Feb 1;22(1):98. Epub 2021 Feb 1.

College of Animal Science and Technology, Qingdao Agricultural University, Qingdao, 266109, China.

Background: Intramuscular fat (IMF) content has become one of the most important indicators for measuring meat quality, and levels of IMF are affected by various genes. Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are widely expressed non-coding RNAs that play an important regulatory role in a variety of biological processes; however, research on the lncRNAs involved in sheep IMF deposition is still in its infancy. Aohan fine-wool sheep (AFWS), one of China's most important meat-hair, dual-purpose sheep breed, provides a great model for studying the role of lncRNAs in the regulation of IMF deposition.

Faculty of Agrobiology, Food and Natural Resources, Czech University of Life Sciences, Kamýcká 129, Prague 165 21, Czech Republic.

The nutritional quality of beef relates to the fatty acid (FA) composition of bovine adipose tissue. Those molecular mechanisms that induce the differing amounts and composition of fat in cattle breeds according to age at maturity and purpose of production remain unclear. Therefore, this study investigated the composition of total FAs, adipocyte size, and expression of some key genes involved in several adipogenesis and lipogenesis pathways measured in distinct adipose tissue depots from bulls of the genetically diverse cattle breeds Aberdeen Angus (n = 9), Gascon (n = 10), Holstein (n = 9), and Fleckvieh (n = 10).

Meat Quality Area, Center of Scientific and Technological Research of Extremadura (CICYTEX-La Orden), Junta de Extremadura, Ctra, A-V, Km372, 06187 Guadajira, Spain.

Iberian dry-cured loins from pigs fattened in Montanera are usually subjected to seasonal production, which could be overcome through freezing the loin before the curing process. Hence, three homogeneous batches ( = 15 per batch) were established to evaluate the effect of different pre-freezing cure (-20 ± 2 °C) times (three and six months) of raw material on main quality characteristics of dry-cured loins in comparison to those elaborated from unfrozen meat. All samples were subjected to similar seasoning and same curing length to obtain dry-cured loins. Read More
