    • 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, 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 ...
    • Effect of selective recording on estimates of heritability 

      Alfonso Ruiz, Leopoldo; Noguera Jiménez, José Luis; Babot Gaspa, Daniel; Estany Illa, Joan (Instituto Nacional de Investigación y Tecnología Agraria y Alimentaria (Espanya), 1999)
      En este trabajo se analiza el efecto de la selección de datos sobre las estimaciones de heredabilidad. Se estimó el valor de heredabilidad del tamaño de camada en una población porcina en la que los datos correspondientes ...
    • Estimación de los efectos del manejo reproductivo y su influencia en la selección del tamaño de la camada en porcino 

      Babot Gaspa, Daniel; Noguera Jiménez, José Luis; Alfonso Ruiz, Leopoldo; Estany Illa, Joan (Instituto Nacional de Investigación y Tecnología Agraria y Alimentaria (Espanya), 2000)
      Con datos procedentes de poblaciones de campo (37.920 partos porducidos en granjas de selección y 95.240 partos producidos en granjas de producción) se ha analizado la influencia de la edad al primer parto, de la duración ...
    • Five genomic regions have a major impact on fat composition in Iberian pigs 

      Pena i Subirà, Ramona Natacha; Noguera Jiménez, José Luis; García-Santana, M. J.; González, E.; Tejeda, J. F.; Ros Freixedes, Roger; Ibáñez-Escriche, N. (Nature Research, 2019)
      The adipogenic nature of the Iberian pig defines many quality attributes of its fresh meat and dry-cured products. The distinct varieties of Iberian pig exhibit great variability in the genetic parameters for fat deposition ...
    • Selection of internal control genes for real-time quantitative PCR in ovary and uterus of sows across pregnancy 

      Martinez-Giner, Maria; Noguera Jiménez, José Luis; Balcells, Ingrid; Fernandez-Rodriguez, Amanda; Pena i Subirà, Ramona Natacha (Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2013)
      Reproductive traits play a key role in pig production in order to reduce costs and increase economic returns. Among others, gene expression analyses represent a useful approach to study genetic mechanisms underlying ...
    • The effect of age at the first mating and herd size on the lifetime productivity of sows 

      Babot Gaspa, Daniel; Chavez, Eduardo R.; Noguera Jiménez, José Luis (Institut national de la recherche agronomique (França)EDP Sciences, 2003)
      The effect of age at the first mating and herd size were evaluated in the reference Spanish Databank (BDporc) of 37 698 sows born between 1991 and 1995 and with individual lifetime records. The data included dates of births ...
