A Nonsynonymous Change in Adhesion G Protein–Coupled Receptor L3 Associated With Risk for Equine Degenerative Myeloencephalopathy in the Caspian Horse
Equine degenerative myeloencephalopathy (EDM), a neurological disease of young horses, causes progressive development of symmetric ataxia predominantly in the pelvic limbs.
Our findings were in agreement with other studies in that microsatellite DNA genotyping is useful for individual identification, and paternity and maternity verification on horse population.
In this study, 51 fibroblast cell lines from Caspian horse ear marginal tissue were successfully established by sampling 60 horses using primary explant technique.
Recently, new advanced high-throughput sequencing technology as a novel tool has opened the way to study of genomic variants and functional information stored within farm animals.
GENETIC DIVERSITY AND POPULATION STRUCTURE OF THE ARABIAN HORSE POPULATIONS FROM SYRIA AND OTHER COUNTRIES
Humans and horses weaved together wonderful stories of adventure and generosity. As a part of human history and civilization, Arabian horses ignite imagination throughout the world. Populations of this breed exist in many countries.
This report describes the use of a genome-wide set of autosomal SNPs and 814 horses from 36 breeds to provide the first detailed description of equine breed diversity.
Caspian and Kurd horse populations showed significant differences with other populations and sequences from the GenBank.
Phylogenetic relationships of the Hucul horse from Romania inferred from mitochondrial D-loop variation
For instance, the H2 haplotype was shared between the Akhal Teke, Friesian and Caspian pony breeds.
