    • A genome-wide association analysis for porcine serum lipid traits reveals the existence of age-specific genetic determinants 

      Manunza, Arianna; Casellas, Joaquim; Quintanilla Aguado, Raquel; González-Prendes, Rayner; Pena i Subirà, Ramona Natacha; Tibau, Joan; Mercadé Carceller, Anna; Castelló, Anna; Aznarez, Nitdia; Hernández-Sánchez, Jules; Amills i Eras, Marcel (BioMed Central, 2014-09-10)
      Background: The genetic determinism of blood lipid concentrations, the main risk factor for atherosclerosis, is practically unknown in species other than human and mouse. Even in model organisms, little is known about how ...
    • 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 ...
    • Application of the microarray technology to the transcriptional analysis of muscle phenotypes in pigs 

      Pena i Subirà, Ramona Natacha; Quintanilla Aguado, Raquel; Manunza, Arianna; Gallardo García, David; Casellas, Joaquim; Amills i Eras, Marcel (Wiley, 2014-05-14)
      The transcriptome refers to the collection of all transcripts present in a cell. Gene expression has a very dynamic nature; it acts as a bridge between epigenetic marks, DNA sequence and proteins and changes to accommodate ...
    • Associations between pig adiponectin (ADIPOQ) genotype and serum lipid levels are modulated by age-specific modifiers 

      Castelló, Anna; Quintanilla Aguado, Raquel; Melo, C.; Gallardo García, David; Zidi, A.; Manunza, Arianna; Noguera Jiménez, José Luis; Tibau, Joan; Jordana i Vidal, Jordi; Pena i Subirà, Ramona Natacha; Amills i Eras, Marcel (American Society of Animal Science, 2014-12-15)
      The adiponectin (ADIPOQ) locus is a positional and functional candidate gene for 2 porcine chromosome 13 (SSC13) QTL influencing cholesterol (CHOL) and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) concentrations in 190-d-old pigs. By ...
    • Comparing the mRNA expression profile and the genetic determinism of intramuscular fat traits in the porcine gluteus medius and longissimus dorsi muscles 

      González-Prendes, Rayner; Quintanilla Aguado, Raquel; Mármol-Sánchez, Emilio; Pena i Subirà, Ramona Natacha; Ballester, Maria; Figueiredo Cardoso, Tainã; Manunza, Arianna; Casellas, Joaquim; Cánovas, Angela; Díaz, Isabel; Noguera Jiménez, José Luis; Castelló, Anna; Mercadé Carceller, Anna; Amills i Eras, Marcel (BMC (part of Springer Nature), 2019-03-04)
      Background: Intramuscular fat (IMF) content and composition have a strong impact on the nutritional and organoleptic properties of porcine meat. The goal of the current work was to compare the patterns of gene expression ...
    • 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 ...
