Effect of seasonal changes on fertility parameters of Holstein dairy cows in subtropical climate of Taiwan
(Asian-Australasian Association of Animal Production Societies, 2018-06-01)
Objective: The purpose of this retrospective study was to investigate the relationship between temperature-humidity index (THI), season, and conception rate (CR) of Holstein cows in central Taiwan. Methods: The mean ...
Polymorphism of KRT83 and its association with selected wool traits in Merino-cross lambs
Keratins are structural proteins in the cortex of wool fibres. It is thought that variation in the keratin genes (KRTs) affects wool structure and characteristics. Polymerase chain reaction-single stranded conformational ...
Analysis of polymorphisms of mitochondrial DNA D-loop and Mc1R gene in Chinese Wuchuan Black cattle
(Taylor & Francis, 2014-01-01)
Chinese Wuchuan Black cattle is an important indigenous breed in Guizhou province, China. However, little is known about the genetic characterization and origin of this breed. In the present study, the polymorphism and ...
Variation in the stearoyl-CoA desaturase gene (SCD) and its influence on milk fatty acid composition in late-lactation dairy cattle grazed on pasture
(Copernicus Publications on behalf of the Leibniz Institute for Farm Animal Biology (FBN), 2020-11-03)
Gene markers have become useful tools for improving animal genetics and breeding since they improve the accuracy of selection for superior breeding stock. In this study, the stearoyl-CoA desaturase (Δ-9-desaturase) gene ...
