Single Gene Consistently Associated with Heat Stress Response in Three Distinct Chicken LinesAnimal Industry Report
Extension NumberASL R3173
Summary and ImplicationsIdentification ofspecific geneor quantitative trait locus that responds to specific stimulus is an important goal for genetic improvementprograms. In a heat stress experiment with 3 distinct chicken lines, we found Angiopoietin-like 4 (ANGPTL4) to be differentially expressed in all 3 lines during acute and chronic heat stress.This outcome suggests the need to further exploreANGPTL4 as a potential candidate gene for selection to improve chicken response to heat stress.
