Expression analysis of homeobox gene family in bovine pre- and post-implantative developmental stages
Homeobox (hox) genes encode transcription factors which regulate the expression of several target genes encoding essential proteins for cell differentiation and proliferation. Thus, hox-genes have long been recognized as ...
Die Wirkung der Mikrogravitation auf das Abwehrsystemvon Schwertträgerfischen (<i>Xiphophorus helleri</i>, Heckel)in einem geschlossenen, aquatischen Ökosystem: immunologische und hämatologische Untersuchungen
<u>Background:</u> The effect of space flight conditions on the immune system of humans and rodents was investigated since the beginning of space flight. Until now there were no investigations of the influence of microgravity ...
Molecular genetic analysis of bovine oocytes with different developmental potentials
Poor oocyte developmental potential contributes to reduced fertility in livestock species and hampers the application of biotechnology techniques in cattle industry that could be used for spreading certain genotypes with ...
Candidate gene analysis for loci affecting sperm quality and fertility of boar
Fertility is one of the most important economical traits in swine production. Implementation of artificial insemination (AI) in swine production allowed improving selection on the boars for production traits, but at the ...
Molecular genetic analysis of positional candidate genes for mammary gland characteristics in pigs
Inverted teat reduce the number of functional mammary complexes in affected sows leading for reduction of piglet productivity and litter growth during the lactation period. This detect occures in commercial pig breeds with ...
Detection and characterization of QTL in a porcinen Duroc-Pietrain resource population
In the present thesis, genome scans were performed for QTL detection in a F2 resource population which was reciprocally crossed between Duroc and Pietrain. 1085 F2 progeny within 38 full-sib families were produced from ...
