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) Genètica i Millora Animal
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 ...
A Meta-analysis Describing the Effects of the Essential oils Blend Agolin Ruminant on Performance, Rumen Fermentation and Methane Emissions in Dairy Cows
(Animals, 2020-04-03) Producció de Remugants
There is an increasing pressure to identify feed additives which increase productivity or decrease methane emissions. This paper aims to elucidate the effects of supplementing a specific essential oils ...
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 ...
Evaluating the potential role of tryptophan in calf milk replacers to facilitate weaning
(Journal of Dairy Science, 2020-05-29) Producció de Remugants
Tryptophan is a precursor of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that participates in the control of the affective state of an animal. We hypothesized that Trp supplementation could help dairy calves to cope ...
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 ...
Gut eukaryotic communities in pigs: diversity, composition and host genetics contribution
(Animal Microbiome, 2020-05-07) Genètica i Millora Animal; Gestió Integral de Residus Orgànics
Background The pig gut microbiome harbors thousands of species of archaea, bacteria, viruses and eukaryotes such as protists and fungi. However, since the majority of published studies have been focused ...
