Isolation and characterization of hepatic and intestinal expressed sequence tags potentially involved in trait differentiation between cows of different metabolic type

Isolation and characterization of hepatic and intestinal expressed sequence tags potentially... mRNA differential display was applied to identify hepatic and intestinal expressed sequence tags (ESTs) in lactating cows of different metabolic types (milk type, meat/milk type, meat type) that are potentially associated with energy turnover and involved in the regulation of these processes. Altogether, 277 ESTs (liver: 161, intestine: 116) were identified. For 150 transcripts (liver: 99, intestine: 51), the sequences showed similarity to previously described genes and ESTs. Many of these homologous sequences are reported to be involved in hepatic metabolism. Ninety-four ESTs (liver: 43, intestine: 51) did not match with any database entries. Semi-quantitative RT-PCR revealed quantitative differences in transcript represented by randomly chosen ESTs in liver samples of animals of the Holstein and Charolais breeds. One hundred twenty-two ESTs were mapped physically by using a bovine-hamster somatic cell hybrid panel (SCP) and a 5000-rad bovine whole genome radiation hybrid panel (WGRH). These ESTs were assigned to the bovine syntenic groups and positioned in the recently established RH-based ordered comparative map of the cattle and human genomes. The mapped, differentially expressed sequence tags are a useful prerequisite for cloning of genetic variation underlying economic traits. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Mammalian Genome Springer Journals
