Bioinformatic analyses in early host response to Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome virus PRRSV reveals pathway differences between pigs with alternate genotypes for a major host response QTLDownload
Bao, Hua, Schroyen, Martine, Rowland, Robert R.R., Guan, Le L., Stothard, Paul, Reecy, James M., Fritz-Waters, Eric, Koltes, James E., Kommadath, Arun, Plastow, Graham S., Eisley, Christopher, Tuggle, Christopher K. , Dekkers, Jack C.M., Lunney, Joan K., Choi, Igseo
Background A region on Sus scrofa chromosome 4 (SSC4) surrounding single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) marker WUR10000125 (WUR) has been reported to be strongly associated with both weight gain and serum viremia in pigs after infection with PRRS virus (PRRSV). A proposed causal mutation in the...
Characterisation of genetic variation in the pig breeds of China and Europe – The PigBioDiv2 project.Download
The PigBioDiv2 project will evaluate and compare genetic diversity among the pig breeds of China and Europe. At least 50 Chinese breeds will be sampled and compared with 59 European breeds previously sampled in the PigBioDiv1 project. The European pig biodiversity database will be extended to at...
Feed fermentation formulate gut microbiota of weanling pigs - Effects of exopolysaccharides and reutericyclinDownload
Enteric bacterial infections, especially post-weaning diarrhea, are among the most common diseases affecting pigs and economically significant in swine production. Antibiotics were a cost-effective method to treat and prevent these bacterial diseases. However, with concerns of the prevalence of...
Analysis of the genetic variation of an endangered population is an important component for the success of conservation. Animals from two local Romanian pig breeds, the Mangalitsa and Bazna, were analysed for variation at a number of genetic loci using PCR-based DNA tests. Polymorphism was...
Genome-wide analysis of the transcriptional response to porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus infection at the maternal/fetal interface and in the fetusDownload
Background Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome Virus (PRRSV) infection of pregnant pigs can result in congenital infection and ultimately fetal death. Little is known about immune responses to infection at the maternal-fetal interface and in the fetus itself, or the molecular events...
Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) identify a QTL close to PRKAG3 affecting meat pH and colour in crossbred commercial pigsDownload
Background Improving meat quality is a high priority for the pork industry to satisfy consumers’ preferences. GWAS have become a state-of-the-art approach to genetically improve economically important traits. However, GWAS focused on pork quality are still relatively rare. Results Six...
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...
In vitro digestion and fermentation characteristics of canola co-products simulate their digestion in the pig intestineDownload
Canola co-products are sources of amino acid and energy in pig feeds, but their fermentation characteristics in the pig intestine are unknown. Thus, we determined the in vitro fermentation characteristics of the canola co-products Brassica juncea solvent-extracted canola meal (JSECM), Brassica...
Background Transcriptome analysis of porcine whole blood has several applications, which include deciphering genetic mechanisms for host responses to viral infection and vaccination. The abundance of alpha- and beta-globin transcripts in blood, however, impedes the ability to cost-effectively...
Initial differences in lipid processing leading to pig- and beef-derived mature adipocyte dedifferentiationDownload
Clonal cultures of pig-derived mature adipocytes are capable of dedifferentiating and forming proliferative-competent progeny cells in vitro. Initial lipid processing, is different to that observed in cultures of beef-derived adipocytes. Mature pig adipocytes extrude lipid before proliferation,...
