    • 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 ...
    • Analysis of porcine adipose tissue transcriptome reveals differences in de novo fatty acid synthesis in pigs with divergent muscle fatty acid composition 

      Corominas, Jordi; Ramayo Caldas, Yuliaxis; Puig Oliveras, Anna; Estellé, Jordi; Castelló, Anna; Alves, Estefania; Pena i Subirà, Ramona Natacha; Ballester, Maria; Folch Albareda, Josep Maria (BioMed Central, 2013)
      Background: In pigs, adipose tissue is one of the principal organs involved in the regulation of lipid metabolism. It is particularly involved in the overall fatty acid synthesis with consequences in other lipid-target ...
    • 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 ...
    • Copy number variation in the porcine genome inferred from a 60 k SNP BeadChip 

      Ramayo Caldas, Yuliaxis; Castelló, Anna; Pena i Subirà, Ramona Natacha; Alves, Estefania; Mercadé Carceller, Anna; Souza, Carla A.; Fernández, Ana I.; Perez Enciso, Miguel; Folch Albareda, Josep Maria (BioMed Central, 2010)
      Background: Recent studies in pigs have detected copy number variants (CNVs) using the Comparative Genomic Hybridization technique in arrays designed to cover specific porcine chromosomes. The goal of this study was to ...
    • Modulatory effect of protein and carotene dietary levels on pig gut microbiota 

      González-Prendes, Rayner; Pena i Subirà, Ramona Natacha; Solé Mòdol, Emma; Seradj, Ahmad Reza; Estany Illa, Joan; Ramayo Caldas, Yuliaxis (Springer Nature, 2019-09-20)
      In this study we investigated the impact of dietary protein and carotene levels on microbial functions and composition during the last month of purebred fattening Duroc pigs. Fecal microbiota was characterized using 16S ...
