Association between single-nucleotide polymorphisms and milk production traits in buffalo

G. C. Venturini, Cardoso, D. F., Baldi, F., Freitas, A. C., Aspilcueta-Borquis, R. R., Santos, D. J. A., Camargo, G. M. F., Stafuzza, N. B., Albuquerque, L. G., and Tonhati, H., Association between single-nucleotide polymorphisms and milk production traits in buffalo, vol. 13, pp. 10256-10268, 2014.

The aim of this study was to identify single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in buffaloes associated with milk yield and content, in addition to somatic cell scores based on the cross-species transferability of SNPs from cattle to buffalo. A total of 15,745 SNPs were analyzed, of which 1562 showed 1% significance and 4742 with 5% significance, which were associated for all traits studied.

Methylation-sensitive amplification polymorphism analysis of fat and muscle tissues in pigs

J. D. Ma, Li, M. Z., Zhou, S. L., Zhou, C. W., and Li, X. W., Methylation-sensitive amplification polymorphism analysis of fat and muscle tissues in pigs, vol. 11, pp. 3505-3510, 2012.

DNA methylation may be involved in regulating the expression of protein-coding genes, resulting in different fat and muscle phenotypes. Using a methylation-sensitive amplified polymorphism approach, we obtained 7423 bands by selective amplification of genomic DNA from six different fat depots and two heterogeneous muscle types from Duroc/Landrace/Yorkshire cross-bred pigs.
