- ... Beef production is an economically important sector of animal husbandry and much attention has been paid on the identification of molecular markers associated with gene expressions and growth traits. The aim of this study was to search for potential effects of a novel copy number variation (CNV) located in intron 10 of bovine Mitogen-Activated Protein Kinase 10 (MAPK10) on phenotypic variation. Ca ...

- ... The leptin gene is considered to be an excellent candidate gene for predicting desirable economic traits in both beef and dairy cattle. Leptin gene polymorphism has been analyzed in different livestock species and the polymorphic pattern has been demonstrated to be associated with energy balance, milk production, live body weight and reproductive performance. The present study was designed to anal ...
