Selection of internal control genes for real-time quantitative PCR in ovary and uterus of sows across pregnancy
Noguera Jiménez, José Luis
MetadataShow full item record
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 reproductive traits in pigs. The application of reverse-transcription quantitative PCR requires the selection of appropriate reference genes, whose expression levels should not be affected by the experimental conditions, especially when comparing gene expression across different physiological stages.

Comparative transcriptome profile between Iberian pig varieties provides new insights into their distinct fat deposition and fatty acids content Villaplana-Velasco, Ana; Noguera Jiménez, José Luis; Pena i Subirà, Ramona Natacha; Ballester, Maria; Muñoz Vázquez, Lourdes; González, E.; Tejeda, J.F.; Ibáñez-Escriche, N. (MDPI, 2021-02-27)The high deposition of intramuscular fat and the content of oleic fatty acid are characteristic of the Iberian pig. These two parameters present great variability and are differentiated amongst the varieties that make up ...
