Association between JY-1 gene polymorphisms and reproductive traits in beef cattle
(Gene, 2014-01-10) [Artigo]
Reproductive traits have a high economic value and it is interesting to include them in the selection objectives of an animal breeding program. These traits generally show low heritability and molecular markers may therefore ...
Copy number variation regions in Nellore cattle: Evidences of environment adaptation
(Livestock Science, 2018-01-01) [Artigo]
The aim of the present study was to analyze the distribution of CNV regions (CNVRs) as well as to address hypothesis about the natural/artificial selection process in Nellore cattle. A total of 399,361 CNVs were identified, ...
Polymorphisms in TOX and NCOA2 genes and their associations with reproductive traits in cattle
(Reproduction Fertility And Development, 2015-01-01) [Artigo]
Reproductive traits are an important component of the economic selection index for beef cattle in the tropics. Phenotypic expression of these traits occurs late because they are measured when the animals reach reproductive ...
First polymorphisms in JY-1 gene in cattle (Bos taurus indicus) and their association with sexual precocity and growth traits
(Molecular Biology Reports, 2012-12-01) [Artigo]
Protein JY-1 is a bovine oocyte-specific protein that regulates granulosa cell function and is involved in early embryonic development, influencing the chance of pregnancy. This study investigated molecular markers for the ...
