Expression analysis of candidate genes for fatty acid composition in adipose tissue and identifcation of regulatory regions
(Scientific Reports, 2018-02-01)
The aim of this work was to study the genetic basis of the backfat expression of lipid-related genes associated with meat quality traits in pigs. We performed a genome-wide association study with the backfat gene expression ...
Analysing the Expression of Eight Clock Genes in Five Tissues From Fasting and Fed Sows
(Frontiers in Genetics, 2018-10-18)
In a previous study, we observed that circadian clock genes are differentially expressed in the skeletal muscle of fasting and fed sows. The goal of the current work was to investigate if these genes are also differentially ...
Comparing the mRNA expression profile and the genetic determinism of intramuscular fat traits in the porcine gluteus medius and longissimus dorsi muscles
(BMC Genomics, 2019-03-04)
Background Intramuscular fat (IMF) content and composition have a strong impact on the nutritional and organoleptic properties of porcine meat. The goal of the current work was to compare the patterns of gene expression ...
Association between the pig genome and its gut microbiota composition
(Scientific Reports, 2019-06-19)
The gut microbiota has been evolving with its host along the time creating a symbiotic relationship. In this study, we assess the role of the host genome in the modulation of the microbiota composition in pigs. Gut microbiota ...
Indel detection from Whole Genome Sequencing data and association with lipid metabolism in pigs
(PLoS ONE, 2019-06-27)
The selection in commercial swine breeds for meat-production efficiency has been increasing among the past decades, reducing the intramuscular fat content, which has changed the sensorial and technological properties of ...
Analysis of porcine IGF2 gene expression in adipose tissue and its effect on fatty acid composition
(Plos One, 2019-08-08)
IGF2:g.3072G>A polymorphism has been described as the causal mutation of a maternally imprinted QTL for muscle growth and fat deposition in pigs. The objective of the current work was to study the association between the ...
