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...
Discovery of Predictors of Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae Vaccine Response Efficiency in Pigs: 16S rRNA Gene Fecal Microbiota AnalysisDownload
Munyaka, Peris M., Blanc, Fany, Estelle, Jordi, Lemonnier, Gaetan, Leplat, Jean-Jacques, Rossignol, Marie-Noelle, Jardet, Deborah, Plastow, Graham, Billon, Yvon, Willing, Benjamin P., Rogel-Gaillard, Claire
The gut microbiota comprises a large and diverse community of bacteria that play a significant role in swine health. Indeed, there is a tight association between the enteric immune system and the overall composition and richness of the microbiota, which is key in the induction, training and...
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...
Fetal Metabolomic Alterations Following Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome Virus InfectionDownload
PRRSV infection in third-trimester pregnant sows can lead to fetal death and abortions, although the mechanisms triggering these effects are not well understood. Since resistant and susceptible fetuses can coexist in the same litter, we propose that there may be differential mechanisms used by...
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 analysis of thetranscriptional response to porcinereproductive and respiratory syndromevirus infection at the maternal/fetalinterface and in the fetusDownload
Background:Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome Virus (PRRSV) infection of pregnant pigs can result incongenital infection and ultimately fetal death. Little is known about immune responses to infection at thematernal-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...
