    • About the existence of common determinants of gene expression in the porcine liver and skeletal muscle 

      González Prendes, Rayner; Mármol-Sánchez, Emilio; Quintanilla Aguado, Raquel; Castelló, Anna; Zidi, A.; Ramayo Caldas, Yuliaxis; Figueiredo Cardoso, Tainã; Manunza, Arianna; Cánovas, Angela; Amills i Eras, Marcel (BMC (part of Springer Nature), 2019-06-24)
      Background The comparison of expression QTL (eQTL) maps obtained in different tissues is an essential step to understand how gene expression is genetically regulated in a context-dependent manner. In the current work, we ...
    • Co-expression network analysis predicts a key role of microRNAs in the adaptation of the porcine skeletal muscle to nutrient supply 

      Mármol-Sánchez, Emilio; Ramayo Caldas, Yuliaxis; Quintanilla Aguado, Raquel; Figueiredo Cardoso, Tainã; González Prendes, Rayner; Tibau, Joan; Amills i Eras, Marcel (BMC (part of Springer Nature), 2020-01-17)
      Background The role of non-coding RNAs in the porcine muscle metabolism is poorly understood, with few studies investigating their expression patterns in response to nutrient supply. Therefore, we aimed to investigate the ...
    • Joint QTL mapping and gene expression analysis identify positional candidate genes influencing pork quality traits 

      González Prendes, Rayner; Quintanilla Aguado, Raquel; Cánovas, Angela; Manunza, Arianna; Figueiredo Cardoso, Tainã; Jordana i Vidal, Jordi; Noguera Jiménez, José Luis; Pena i Subirà, Ramona Natacha; Amills i Eras, Marcel (Nature, 2017)
      Meat quality traits have an increasing importance in the pig industry because of their strong impact on consumer acceptance. Herewith, we have combined phenotypic and microarray expression data to map loci with potential ...
    • Linoleic acid metabolic pathway allows for an efficient increase of intramuscular fat content in pigs 

      Gol, Sofia; González Prendes, Rayner; Bosch, Lluís; Tor i Naudí, Marc; Reixach, Josep; Pena i Subirà, Ramona Natacha; Estany Illa, Joan (BMC (part of Springer Nature), 2019-05-07)
      Background: Intramuscular fat (IMF) content is a relevant trait for high-quality meat products such as dry-cured ham, but increasing IMF has the undesirable correlated effect of decreasing lean growth. Thus, there is a ...
    • Transcriptome shifts triggered by vitamin A and SCD genotype interaction in duroc pigs 

      Solé Mòdol, Emma; González Prendes, Rayner; Oliinychenko, Yelyzaveta; Ros Freixedes, Roger; Pena i Subirà, Ramona Natacha; Tor i Naudí, Marc; Estany Illa, Joan (BMC, 2022)
      Background The composition of intramuscular fat depends on genetic and environmental factors, including the diet. In pigs, we identified a haplotype of three SNP mutations in the stearoyl-coA desaturase (SCD) gene promoter ...
