Y. Wei, Zhang, G. X., Zhang, T., Wang, J. Y., Fan, Q. C., Tang, Y., Ding, F. X., Zhang, L., Wei, Y., Zhang, G. X., Zhang, T., Wang, J. Y., Fan, Q. C., Tang, Y., Ding, F. X., and Zhang, L., Myf5 and MyoG gene SNPs associated with Bian chicken growth trait, vol. 15, p. -, 2016.

The growth trait is important in poultry production. We analyzed the association between single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the Myf5 and MyoG gene and Bian chicken growth traits. SNPs in candidate genes of the Bian chickens were detected by the polymerase chain reaction-single strand conformation polymorphism method. Two mutation loci and six genotypes were identified in each candidate gene.

Single nucleotide polymorphisms of Δ6-desaturase and Elovl5 segments and their associations with common carp (Cyprinus carpio) growth traits

H. .Ren, Yu, J., Xu, P., and Tang, Y., Single nucleotide polymorphisms of Δ6-desaturase and Elovl5 segments and their associations with common carp (Cyprinus carpio) growth traits, vol. 14, pp. 12848-12854, 2015.

Highly unsaturated fatty acids (HUFAs) are crucial for the nutritional health, physiology, and reproduction of vertebrates. The Δ6-desaturase and Elovl5 elongase genes produce essential enzymes in the biosynthetic pathway of HUFAs. Single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) analysis of genes functionally related to the growth traits of the common carp (Cyprinus carpio var. Jian) can provide useful information for common carp molecular breeding. In this study, we isolated two Δ6 Fad genes and two Elovl5 genes from the common carp.
