Characterization of microRNA expression in bovine adipose tissues: A potential regulatory mechanism of subcutaneous adipose tissue developmentDownload
Background MicroRNAs (miRNAs), a family of small non-coding RNA molecules, appear to regulate animal lipid metabolism and preadipocyte conversion to form lipid-assimilating adipocytes (i.e. adipogenesis). However, no miRNA to date has been reported to modulate adipogenesis and lipid deposition...
Adipose tissue plays an important role in the energetic balance, but it is also an important aspect of meat quality and animal productivity. However, the understanding on how fat metabolism is regulated in beef cattle is not clear. This research aimed at exploring how bovine adipose tissue is...
Background MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small non-coding RNAs found to regulate several biological processes including adipogenesis. Understanding adipose tissue regulation is critical for beef cattle as fat is an important determinant of beef quality and nutrient value. This study analyzed the...
Background The fat components of red meat products have been of interest to researchers due to the health aspects of excess fat consumption by humans. We hypothesized that differences in protein expression have an impact on adipose tissue formation during beef cattle development and growth....
