Effects of a single nucleotide polymorphism in the leptin gene on the productive traits of dairy buffaloes (Bubalus bubalis)
The gene responsible for coding the leptin hormone has been associated with productive and reproductive traits in cattle. In dairy cattle, different polymorphisms found in the leptin gene have been associated with several ...
Effects of CSN3 and LGB gene polymorphisms on production traits in beef cattle
The objective of the present study was to estimate the allele and genotype frequencies of the CSN3/Hinfl and LGB/HaeIII gene polymorphisms in beef cattle belonging to different genetic groups, and to determine the effects ...
Frequency of the HFE C282Y and H63D polymorphisms in Brazilian malaria patients and blood donors from the Amazon region
Malaria is an endemic parasitosis and its causitive agent, Plasmodium, has a metabolism linked to iron supply. HFE is a gene with the polymorphisms C282Y and H63D, which are associated with a progressive iron accumulation ...
Gene polymorphisms as a predictor of body weight loss after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery among obese women
This study aimed to investigate the association between twelve gene polymorphisms and body weight loss, 12 months after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) surgery. Three hundred and fifty-one obese women participated in this ...
Polymorphisms in the AR and PSA Genes as Markers of Susceptibility and Aggressiveness in Prostate Cancer
(Taylor & Francis Inc, 2010-11-01)
The study of genes involved in androgen pathway can contribute to a better knowledge of prostate cancer. Our aim was to examine if polymorphisms in prostate-specific antigen (PSA) and androgen receptor (AR) genes were ...
Hemoglobin and HFE gene polymorphisms in Brazilian populations in regions endemic for malaria
Our objective was to determine how the distribution of red blood cell diseases is related to malaria occurrence in north Brazil, a region endemic for malaria. We evaluated the incidence of two mutations in the HFE gene, ...
Suggestive associations between polymorphisms in PAX9, MSX1 genes and third molar agenesis in humans
(Bentham Science Publ LtdSharjahEmirados Árabes Unidos, 2006)
Polymorphisms in TOX and NCOA2 genes and their associations with reproductive traits in cattle
(Csiro Publishing, 2015-01-01)
Reproductive traits are an important component of the economic selection index for beef cattle in the tropics. Phenotypic expression of these traits occurs late because they are measured when the animals reach reproductive ...
Association between IGF-I, IGF-IR and GHRH gene polymorphisms and growth and carcass traits in beef cattle
(Elsevier B.V., 2005-07-01)
Molecular biology techniques are of help in genetic improvement since they permit the identification, mapping and analysis of polymorphisms of genes encoding proteins that act on metabolic pathways involved in economically ...
