Characterization of footrot bacteria Dichelobacter nodosus using PCR amplification and DNA sequence analysis
(TÜBİTAK The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey, 2006)
Dichelobacter nodosus is an essential causative agent of footrot in ruminants, particularly in sheep, goats and cattle. In this study, more than 100 footrot samples were collected from 4 different farming regions in New ...
The role of Dichelobacter nodosus and Fusobacterium necrophorum in footrot in New Zealand
The aim of the research was to to elucidate the role that F. necrophorum and D. nodosus play in footrot singly or together in a pastoral farming system.
Haplotypes and sequence variation in the ovine adiponectin gene (ADIPOQ)
(MDPI AG, 2015-12)
© 2015 by the authors; licensee MDPI, Basel, Switzerland.The adiponectin gene (ADIPOQ) plays an important role in energy homeostasis. In this study five separate regions (regions 1 to 5) of ovine ADIPOQ were analysed using ...
Identification of the keratin-associated protein 13-3 (KAP13-3) gene in sheep
(Scientific Research, 2011)
Keratin-associated proteins (KAPs) are a major structural component of hair and wool fibres, and play a critical role in determining the properties of the fibre. To date, forty functional high sulphur KAP genes from fourteen ...
Identification of four new gene members of the KAP6 gene family in sheep
KAP6 is a high glycine-tyrosine keratin-associated protein (HGT-KAP) family. This family is thought to contain multiple genes. In this study, we used a KRTAP6 coding sequence to search the Ovine Genome (v3.1) and identified ...
Identification of ovine KRTAP28-1 and its association with wool fibre diameter
Keratin-associated proteins (KAPs) are a diverse group of proteins and form a matrix that cross-links keratin intermediate filaments in hair and wool fibres. From over 100 KAP genes (KRTAPs) identified in mammalian species, ...
Identification of the association between FABP4 gene polymorphisms and milk production traits in Sfakia sheep
(Copernicus Publications on behalf of the Leibniz Institute for Farm Animal Biology (FBN), 2019-07-15)
The aim of this study was to estimate the effect of variation in the fatty acid binding protein 4 gene (FABP4) on milk production traits in Greek Sfakia sheep. Polymerase chain reaction – single-stranded conformational ...
Identification of the ovine keratin-associated protein 21-1 gene and its association with variation in wool traits
Keratin-associated proteins (KAPs) are key constituents of wool and hair fibers. In this study, an ovine KAP gene encoding a HGT-KAP protein was identified. The gene was different from all of the HGT-KAP genes identified ...
Ex-vivo cow rumen fluid fermentation: Changes in microbial populations and fermentation products with different forages
(Taylor & Francis, 2018-07-09)
This study investigated the effects of three forage treatments [herbal plantain (PL), ryegrass-white clover pasture (RW) and root crop fodder beet (FB)] on ex-vivo rumen fluid fermentations. Quantitative real-time Polymerase ...
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 ...
