  • Few mitochondrial DNA sequences are inserted into the turkey (Meleagris
           gallopavo) nuclear genome: evolutionary analyses and informativity in the
           domestic lineage
    • Authors: G. Schiavo; M. G. Strillacci, A. Ribani, S. Bovo, S. I. Roman-Ponce, S. Cerolini, F. Bertolini, A. Bagnato, L. Fontanesi
      Abstract: Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) insertions have been detected in the nuclear genome of many eukaryotes. These sequences are pseudogenes originated by horizontal transfer of mtDNA fragments into the nuclear genome, producing nuclear DNA sequences of mitochondrial origin (numt). In this study we determined the frequency and distribution of mtDNA-originated pseudogenes in the turkey (Meleagris gallopavo) nuclear genome. The turkey reference genome (Turkey_2.01) was aligned with the reference linearized mtDNA sequence using last. A total of 32 numt sequences (corresponding to 18 numt regions derived by unique insertional events) were identified in the turkey nuclear genome (size ranging from 66 to 1415 bp; identity against the modern turkey mtDNA corresponding region ranging from 62% to 100%). Numts were distributed in nine chromosomes and in one scaffold. They derived from parts of 10 mtDNA protein-coding genes, ribosomal genes, the control region and 10 tRNA genes. Seven numt regions reported in the turkey genome were identified in orthologues positions in the Gallus gallus genome and therefore were present in the ancestral genome that in the Cretaceous originated the lineages of the modern crown Galliformes. Five recently integrated turkey numts were validated by PCR in 168 turkeys of six different domestic populations. None of the analysed numts were polymorphic (i.e. absence of the inserted sequence, as reported in numts of recent integration in other species), suggesting that the reticulate speciation model is not useful for explaining the origin of the domesticated turkey lineage.

  • Genetic association of the ACACB gene with milk yield and composition
           traits in dairy cattle
    • Authors: B. Han; W. Liang, L. Liu, Y. Li, D. Sun
      Abstract: Previously, we re-sequenced the whole genomes of eight Holstein bulls with high or low milk protein and fat percentage, and we detected two indels in the ACACB (acetyl-CoA carboxylase beta) gene that were polymorphic between the two groups. Thus, we considered ACACB as a promising candidate gene potentially affecting milk composition traits. Herein, we verified the genetic effects of ACACB on five milk traits in a Chinese Holstein population. We identified six SNPs in the 5′-promoter region, five in the 5′- untranslated region (UTR), 11 in exons, four in the 3′-UTR and three in the 3′-flanking region by re-sequencing the entire coding and regulatory regions of ACACB. One of these SNPs (ss1987461005) is reported here for the first time, and three of the SNPs (rs109482081, rs110819816 and rs109281947) were predicted to result in amino acid replacements. Genotype–phenotype association analyses showed that all the identified SNPs, except for ss1987461005, rs208919019 and rs134447911, were significantly associated with milk yield, fat yield, fat percentage, protein yield or protein percentage (P C) and rs210928430 (g.66218117G>A)—were predicted to alter transcription factor binding sites in the 5′-promoter region of ACACB. A luciferase activity assay showed that the promoter activity of haplotype TG was significantly higher than that of CG (P = 0.0002) and that the promoter activity of haplotype TA was remarkably higher than that of CA (P = 7.4285E−09), showing that the T allele of rs135874354 increased promoter activity. Thus, rs135874354 was considered to be a potentially functional mutation. Our findings have, for the first time, profiled the genetic effect of ACACB on milk production traits in dairy cattle and revealed a potentially causal mutation that requires further the in-depth validation.

  • Genomic signatures reveal selection of characteristics within and between
           Meishan pig populations

      Abstract: The Chinese Meishan pig breed is well known for its high prolificacy. Moreover, this breed can be divided into three types based on their body size: big Meishan, middle Meishan (MMS) and small Meishan (SMS) pigs. Few studies have reported on the genetic signatures of Meishan pigs, particularly on a genome-wide scale. Exploring for genetic signatures could be quite valuable for revealing the genetic architecture of phenotypic variation. Thus, we performed research in two parts based on the genome reducing and sequencing data of 143 Meishan pigs (74 MMS pigs, 69 SMS pigs). First, we detected the selection signatures among all Meishan pigs studied using the relative extended haplotype homozygosity test. Second, we detected the selection signatures between MMS and SMS pigs using the cross-population extended haplotype homozygosity and FST methods. A total of 111 398 SNPs were identified from the sequenced genomes. In the population analysis, the most significant genes were associated with the mental development (RGMA), reproduction (HDAC4, FOXL2) and lipid metabolism (ACACB). From the cross-population analysis, we detected genes related to body weight (SPDEF, PACSIN1) in both methods. We suggest that rs341373351, located within the PACSIN1 gene, might be the causal variant. This study may have achieved consistency between selection signatures and characteristics within and between Meishan pig populations. These findings can provide insight into investigating the molecular background of high prolificacy and body size in pig.

  • A targeted genotyping approach enhances identification of variants in
           taste receptor and appetite/reward genes of potential functional
           importance for obesity-related porcine traits
    • Authors: S. Cirera; A. Clop, M. J. Jacobsen, M. Guerin, P. Lesnik, C. B. Jørgensen, M. Fredholm, P. Karlskov-Mortensen
      Abstract: Taste receptors (TASRs) and appetite and reward (AR) mechanisms influence eating behaviour, which in turn affects food intake and risk of obesity. In a previous study, we used next generation sequencing to identify potentially functional mutations in TASR and AR genes and found indications for genetic associations between identified variants and growth and fat deposition in a subgroup of animals (n = 38) from the UNIK resource pig population. This population was created for studying obesity and obesity-related diseases. In the present study we validated results from our previous study by investigating genetic associations between 24 selected single nucleotide variants in TASR and AR gene variants and 35 phenotypes describing obesity and metabolism in the entire UNIK population (n = 564). Fifteen variants showed significant association with specific obesity-related phenotypes after Bonferroni correction. Six of the 15 genes, namely SIM1, FOS, TAS2R4, TAS2R9, MCHR2 and LEPR, showed good correlation between known biological function and associated phenotype. We verified a genetic association between potentially functional variants in TASR/AR genes and growth/obesity and conclude that the combination of identification of potentially functional variants by next generation sequencing followed by targeted genotyping and association studies is a powerful and cost-effective approach for increasing the power of genetic association studies.

  • Genome-wide association study for reproductive traits in a Large White pig
    • Authors: Y. Wang; X. Ding, Z. Tan, K. Xing, T. Yang, Y. Pan, Y. Wang, S. Mi, D. Sun, C. Wang
      Abstract: Using the PorcineSNP80 BeadChip, we performed a genome-wide association study for seven reproductive traits, including total number born, number born alive, litter birth weight, average birth weight, gestation length, age at first service and age at first farrowing, in a population of 1207 Large White pigs. In total, we detected 12 genome-wide significant and 41 suggestive significant SNPs associated with six reproductive traits. The proportion of phenotypic variance explained by all significant SNPs for each trait ranged from 4.46% (number born alive) to 11.49% (gestation length). Among them, 29 significant SNPs were located within known QTL regions for swine reproductive traits, such as corpus luteum number, stillborn number and litter size, of which one QTL region associated with litter size contained the ALGA0098819 SNP for total number born. Subsequently, we found that 376 functional genes contained or were near these significant SNPs. Of these, 14 genes—BHLHA15, OCM2, IL1B2, GCK, SMAD2, HABP2, PAQR5, GRB10, PRELID2, DMKN, GPI, GPIHBP1, ADCY2 and ACVR2B—were considered important candidates for swine reproductive traits based on their critical roles in embryonic development, energy metabolism and growth development. Our findings contribute to the understanding of the genetic mechanisms for reproductive traits and could have a positive effect on pig breeding programs.

  • Genomic variation in Pekin duck populations developed in three different
           countries as revealed by whole-genome data
    • Authors: Z. Zhang; Y. Jia, Y. Chen, L. wang, X. Lv, F. Yang, Y. He, Z. Ning, L. Qu
      Abstract: It is well known that both British and American Pekin ducks originated from China. However, the populations differ substantially in production performance, but the genetic changes involved are still poorly understood. Herein, we sequenced 24 individual Pekin ducks (eight from each population) with an average sequencing depth of more than 45× for each population (mean coverage of 6.29 per individual). Among these populations from three different countries, we identified a large number of SNPs and indels as well as many unique population variants, which can be used as population-specific molecular markers. Genomic comparisons among the three duck populations revealed many candidate genes as well as pathways and Gene Ontology categories that are putatively associated with meat yield in the British population, growth in the American population and brain development in all three populations. These findings will enable a better understanding of the artificial selection history of Pekin ducks and provide a valuable resource for future research on the breeding of this species.

  • An analysis of effects of heterozygosity in dairy cattle for bovine
           tuberculosis resistance

      Abstract: Genetic selection of cattle more resistant to bovine tuberculosis (bTB) may offer a complementary control strategy. Hypothesising underlying non-additive genetic variation, we present an approach using genome-wide high density markers to identify genomic loci with dominance effects on bTB resistance and to test previously published regions with heterozygote advantage in bTB. Our data comprised 1151 Holstein–Friesian cows from Northern Ireland, confirmed bTB cases and controls, genotyped with the 700K Illumina BeadChip. Genome-wide markers were tested for associations between heterozygosity and bTB status using marker-based relationships. Results were tested for robustness against genetic structure, and the genotypic frequencies of a significant locus were tested for departures from Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium. Genomic regions identified in our study and in previous publications were tested for dominance effects. Genotypic effects were estimated through ASReml mixed models. A SNP (rs43032684) on chromosome 6 was significant at the chromosome-wide level, explaining 1.7% of the phenotypic variance. In the controls, there were fewer heterozygotes for rs43032684 (P

  • Genetic contributions to precocity traits in racing Thoroughbreds
    • Authors: G. Farries; P. A. McGettigan, K. F. Gough, B. A. McGivney, D. E. MacHugh, L. M. Katz, E. W. Hill
      Abstract: Adaptation to early training and racing (i.e. precocity), which is highly variable in racing Thoroughbreds, has implications for the selection and training of horses. We hypothesised that precocity in Thoroughbred racehorses is heritable. Age at first sprint training session (work day), age at first race and age at best race were used as phenotypes to quantify precocity. Using high-density SNP array data, additive SNP heritability (hSNP2) was estimated to be 0.17, 0.14 and 0.17 for the three traits respectively. In genome-wide association studies (GWAS) for age at first race and age at best race, a 1.98-Mb region on equine chromosome 18 (ECA18) was identified. The most significant association was with the myostatin (MSTN) g.66493737C>T SNP (P = 5.46 × 10−12 and P = 1.89 × 10−14 respectively). In addition, two SNPs on ECA1 (g.37770220G>A and g.37770305T>C) within the first intron of the serotonin receptor gene HTR7 were significantly associated with age at first race and age at best race. Although no significant associations were identified for age at first work day, the MSTN:g.66493737C>T SNP was among the top 20 SNPs in the GWAS (P = 3.98 × 10−5). Here we have identified variants with potential roles in early adaptation to training. Although there was an overlap in genes associated with precocity and distance aptitude (i.e. MSTN), the HTR7 variants were more strongly associated with precocity than with distance. Because HTR7 is closely related to the HTR1A gene, previously implicated in tractability in young Thoroughbreds, this suggests that behavioural traits may influence precocity.

  • Genome-wide association study of growth traits in Jinghai Yellow chicken
           hens using SLAF-seq technology
    • Authors: W. H. Wang; J. Y. Wang, T. Zhang, Y. Wang, Y. Zhang, K. Han
      Abstract: In this study, we performed a new genome-wide association study using SLAF-seq technology. A total of 19 single nucleotide polymorphism effects involving nine different SNP markers reached 5% Bonferroni-corrected genome-wide significance. In addition, a 5-Mb region spanning 72.9–77.9 Mb on GGA4, exhibiting many significant SNP effects, was identified. The LDB2 gene in this region had a very strong association with body weight. Another SNP on GGA1, located in the INTS6 gene, had the strongest association with late body weight (weeks 10–16). Some of the SNPs that reached suggestive significance level overlapped with previously reported quantitative trait locus regions.
