Analyses of immune competence traits and their association with candidate genes in pigs
The present study was carried out to investigate the immune competences of a backcross DUMI population. Complement activity via classical and alternative pathways were determined using haemolytic activity assay. Antibodies ...
Mapping of quantitative trait loci for immune response traits and expression patterns of Toll-like receptors in lymphoid tissues in pigs
The aim of this research was to identify the quantitative trait loci (QTL) affecting antibody and innate immune response traits. For this purpose, Duroc-Pietrain (DUPI) pigs (n = 319) were genotyped with 122 genetic markers ...
Genetic analysis and expression study of candidate genes affecting leg weakness-related traits in pigs
Leg weakness (LW) problems are a great concern in the pig industry especially with regard to animal welfare. The present study was carried out to identify chromosome regions and candidate genes affecting LW-related traits ...
