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) Genètica i Millora Animal
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 ...
Expression analysis of candidate genes for fatty acid composition in adipose tissue and identifcation of regulatory regions
(Scientific Reports, 2018-02-01) Genètica i Millora Animal
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 ...
Analysing the Expression of Eight Clock Genes in Five Tissues From Fasting and Fed Sows
(Frontiers in Genetics, 2018-10-18) Genètica i Millora Animal
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 ...
Identification of eQTLs associated with lipid metabolism in Longissimus dorsi muscle of pigs with different genetic backgrounds
(Scientific Reports, 2020-06-17) Genètica i Millora Animal
Intramuscular fat content and its fatty acid composition affect porcine meat quality and its nutritional value. The present work aimed to identify genomic variants regulating the expression in the porcine ...
Identification of strong candidate genes for backfat and intramuscular fatty acid composition in three crosses based on the Iberian pig
(Scientific Reports, 2020-08-18) Genètica i Millora Animal
Meat quality has an important genetic component and can be modified by the fatty acid (FA) composition and the amount of fat contained in adipose tissue and muscle. The present study aimed to find genomic ...
A systems biology framework integrating GWAS and RNA-seq to shed light on the molecular basis of sperm quality in swine
(Genetics Selection Evolution, 2020-12-08) Genètica i Millora Animal
Background Genetic pressure in animal breeding is sparking the interest of breeders for selecting elite boars with higher sperm quality to optimize ejaculate doses and fertility rates. However, the ...
