Quantitative Trait Loci and Promoter Analysis of the Bovine Butyrophilin Gene
The butyrophilin gene (BTN1A1) has been described in all mammalian species so far investigated. BTN1A1 is a likely QTL candidate that affects an economically important trait in dairy animals because it is specifically ...
Post-bottleneck inbreeding accumulation reduces fitness in laboratory populations of <italic>Tribolium castaneum</italic> under environmental stress
Populations are often driven to extinction due to low genetic diversity. One major cause for loss of genetic diversity in a population is a demographic bottleneck. A demographic bottleneck was imposed on twenty-one populations ...
DELINEATING THE ROLES OF C. ELEGANS HEME RESPONSIVE GENES HRG-2 AND HRG-3 IN HEME HOMEOSTASIS
Heme is an essential cofactor for diverse biological processes such as oxygen transport, xenobiotic detoxification, and circadian clock control. Since free heme is hydrophobic and cytotoxic, we hypothesize that within ...
ASSOCIATION OF SINGLE NUCLEOTIDE POLYMORPHISMS WITH PHENOTYPIC PRODUCTION TRAITS IN BROILER CHICKENS
This research investigated the association between SNPs and phenotypic production traits in fat and lean chicken broiler lines. In previous research, eleven SNPs in the promoter regions of four candidate genes were selected. ...
