Differential expression of mRNA isoforms in the skeletal muscle of pigs with distinct growth and fatness profiles
(BMC Genomics, 2018-02-14)
Background: The identification of genes differentially expressed in the skeletal muscle of pigs displaying distinct growth and fatness profiles might contribute to identify the genetic factors that influence the phenotypic ...
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 ...
Integrating genome-wide co-association and gene expression to identify putative regulators and predictors of feed efficiency in pigs
(Genetics Selection Evolution, 2019-09-02)
Background: Feed efciency (FE) has a major impact on the economic sustainability of pig production. We used a systems‑based approach that integrates single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) co‑association and gene‑expression data ...
About the existence of common determinants of gene expression in the porcine liver and skeletal muscle
(BMC Genomics, 2019-06-24)
Background: The comparison of expression QTL (eQTL) maps obtained in different tissues is an essential step to understand how gene expression is genetically regulated in a context-dependent manner. In the current work, ...
Co-expression network analysis predicts a key role of microRNAs in the adaptation of the porcine skeletal muscle to nutrient supply
(Journal of Animal Science and Biotechnology, 2020-01-17)
Background The role of non-coding RNAs in the porcine muscle metabolism is poorly understood, with few studies investigating their expression patterns in response to nutrient supply. Therefore, we aimed to investigate the ...
Modulatory effect of protein and carotene dietary levels on pig gut microbiota
(Scientific Reports, 2019-10-10)
In this study we investigated the impact of dietary protein and carotene levels on microbial functions and composition during the last month of purebred fattening Duroc pigs. Fecal microbiota was characterized using 16S ...
