Assessment of GH1, CAPN1 and CAST polymorphisms as markers of carcass and meat traits in Bos indicus and Bos taurus-Bos indicus cross beef cattle
(Meat Science, 2010-12-01) [Artigo]
The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of bovine GH1, CAPN1 and CAST gene polymorphisms on carcass and meat traits in Nellore and Nellore x Bos taurus beef cattle. Three hundred animals were genotyped ...
Degradabilidade ruminal da matéria seca de grãos de milho e de sorgo com alto ou baixo conteúdo de tanino processados
(Revista Brasileira de Saúde e Produção Animal, 2012-06-01) [Artigo]
This work evaluated the effects of high moisture silage, extrusion and corn and sorghum drying with and without tannin, on the chemical composition and ruminal digestion of dry matter. The experimental design was completely ...
Ground annatto seeds (Bixa orellana L.) in sorghum-based commercial layer diets and their effects on performance, egg quality, and yolk pigmentation
(Revista Brasileira de Ciência Avícola, 2010-12-01) [Artigo]
Consumer demands for healthy foods have stimulated the research on the use of natural products in animal nutrition. Annatto can be used a pigmentation source to improve yolk color of commercial eggs. This study aimed at ...
Associations between LEP, DGAT1 and FABP4 gene polymorphisms and carcass and meat traits in Nelore and crossbred beef cattle
(Livestock Science, 2011-02-01) [Artigo]
The aim of this study was to estimate the segregation of leptin (LEP), diacylglycerol O-acyltransferase (DGAT1) and fatty acid-binding protein 4 (FABP4) gene polymorphisms in Nelore (Bos indicus) and Nelore x Bos taurus ...
Genetic polymorphisms related to meat traits in purebred and crossbred Nelore cattle
(Pesquisa Agropecuária Brasileira, 2009-12-01) [Artigo]
O presente trabalho objetivou estimar, em bovinos de corte de diferentes grupos genéticos (Nelore e Nelore x Bos taurus), as frequências alélicas e genotípicas dos polimorfismos CAST/XmnI, do gene da calpastatina, e CAPN530, ...
