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 ...
Effect of sex and RYR1 gene mutation on the muscle proteomic profile and main physiological biomarkers in pigs at slaughter
(Meat Science, 2018-03-27)
Gender and RYR1 gene mutation might have an effect on the muscle metabolic characteristics and on the animal's stress at slaughter, which could influence the process of muscle-to-meat conversion. Forty-eight pigs were ...
Intramuscular fat content in different muscles, locations, weights and genotype-sexes and its prediction in live pigs with computed tomography
Intramuscular fat (IMF) content depends on sex, genotype and diet and varies with pig growth. The aim of the present work was to determine the evolution of IMF by genotype-sex, muscle and muscle location, to determine ...
On-line Ham Grading using pattern recognition models based on available data in commercial pig slaughterhouses
(Meat Science, 2018-04-13)
The thickness of the subcutaneous fat in hams is one of the most important factors for the dry-curing process and largely determines its final quality. This parameter is usually measured in slaughterhouses by a manual ...
Effects of breed‐production system on collagen, textural, and sensory traits of 10 European beef cattle breeds
(Journal of Texture Studies, 2018-06-23)
In the current study the collagen, texture, and sensory characteristics of meat from 712 yearling males of 10 local Spanish and French beef breeds raised in their typical production systems were described. The breed‐production ...
A validated ultra-performance liquid chromatography with diode array detection coupled to electrospray ionization and triple quadrupole mass spectrometry method to simultaneously quantify taurine, homotaurine, hypotaurine and amino acids in macro- and microalgae
(Journal of Chromatography A, 2018-12-26)
A fast and reliable method for the simultaneous quantification of Taurine, Homotaurine, Hypotaurine and 19 amino acids in algae samples by Ultra-performance liquid chromatography coupled with diode array and tandem mass ...
