Identification of differentially expressed genes in sexed pig embryos during post-hatching development in primiparous sows exposed to differing intermittent suckling and breeding strategiesDownload
The aim of commercial pig breeding programs is to maximize the number of pigs produced per sow per year. Given that sows exhibit an estrus during lactation is a potential means of increasing productivity of a pig breeding herd without reducing in lactation length, conventionally, weaning of...
Mapping and characterization of mel-43(sb41), a gene required for early embryonic viability in C. elegansDownload
A genetic screen for dominant, temperature-sensitive, maternal-effect embryonic lethal mutations identified mel-43(sb41), a gene required for early embryonic viability (Mitenko et al., 1997). Linkage mapping placed mel-43 within a small region on chromosome IV. Genetic analyses suggested that...
Proteomic analysis of egg white proteins was performed to elucidate their metabolic fates during first days of embryo development using 2-DE coupled with a LC–MS/MS. A total of 91 protein spots were analyzed, representing 37 proteins belonging to ‘Gallus gallus’, of 19 proteins were detected in...
Early embryonic development is a dynamic period that requires precise and timely interaction between the developing embryo and the maternal environment. A series of studies were carried out in order to identify the vital components of this environment and to understand their temporal and spatial...
Understanding the role of diets enriched in long chain fatty acids on postpartum reproductive function and embryo development in dairy cowsDownload
The objectives of this work were to investigate the influence of diets enriched in long chain fatty acids on feed intake, calf birth weight, maternal and neonatal fatty acid profiles, milk production, postpartum reproductive function, early embryonic development and its transcriptome profile in...
