Characterization of bacterial microbiota compositions along the intestinal tract in pigs and their interactions and functions
(Scientific Reports, 2018-08-28)
In addition to its value in meat production, the pig is an interesting animal model for human digestive tract studies due to its physiological similarities. The aim of this study was to describe the microbiome composition, ...
Role of AMPK signalling pathway during compensatory growth in pigs
(BMC Genomics, 2018-09-17)
Background: The molecular basis of compensatory growth in monogastric animals has not yet been fully explored. Herewith, in this study we aim to determine changes in the pig skeletal muscle transcriptome profile ...
Integrative approach using liver and duodenum RNA-Seq data identifies candidate genes and pathways associated with feed efficiency in pigs
(Scientific Reports, 2018-01-11)
This study aims identifying candidate genes and pathways associated with feed efficiency (FE) in pigs. Liver and duodenum transcriptomes of 37 gilts showing high and low residual feed intake (RFI) were analysed by RNA-Seq. ...
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 ...
