Characterization of Gene Expression in Double-Muscled and Normal-Muscled Bovine EmbryosAnimal Industry Report
Extension NumberASL R1876
Summary and ImplicationsUsing suppressive subtractive hybridization, 19 genes were confirmed to be differentially expressed between double-muscled and normal bovine embryos. The identified genes play roles in several cellular processes, including transcription, cell proliferation, protein synthesis and degradation, and metabolism. These genes can provide insight into molecules with which myostatin may interact. This information could potentially aid in the development of strategies to improve lean tissue deposition in livestock species.
