  1. Organization and expression of canine olfactory receptor genes

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Issel-Tarver, L., Rine, J.

    Four members of the canine olfactory receptor gene family were characterized. The predicted proteins shared 40-64% identity with previously identified olfactory receptors. The four subfamilies identified in Southern hybridization experiments had as few as 2 and as many as 20 members. All four...

  2. Canine olfactory genetics

    | Contributor(s):: Quignon, P., Robin, S., Galibert, F.

  3. A candidate gene association study of cryptorchidism and scrotal hernia using canine and porcine models

    | Contributor(s):: Xia Zhao, Max Rothschild (adviser)

    Cryptorchidism and scrotal hernia, both being sex-limited complex defects, are the most common congenital defects observed in humans, dogs and pigs. It is believed that these two defects are controlled by multiple genes as well as affected by environmental factors. In this thesis, 22 or 14...

  4. Breeding for better welfare: genetic goals for broiler chickens and their parents

    | Contributor(s):: Dawkins, M. S., Layton, R.

  5. Human perceptions of coat color as an indicator of domestic cat personality

    | Contributor(s):: Delgado, M. M., Munera, J. D., Reevy, G. M.

    Associations between mammalian coat color and behavior have been investigated in a number of species, most notably the study of silver foxes by the Institute of Cytology and Genetics at the Russian Academy of Sciences. However, the few studies conducted regarding a potential relation between...

  6. Attitudes on Animal Research Predict Acceptance of Genetic Modification Technologies by University Undergraduates

    | Contributor(s):: Gabriel, K. I., Rutledge, B. H., Barkley, C. L.

  7. Environmental enrichment exerts anxiolytic effects in the Indian field mouse (Mus booduga)

    | Contributor(s):: Varman, D. R., Ganapathy, Marimuthu, Rajan, K. E.

    Environmental enrichment (EE) is known to have behavioral and physiological anxiolytic effects in several animal models. However, it is as yet unclear how EE modulates behavior of wild animals and the underlying molecular mechanisms. The adult male field mouse Mus...

  8. Film commentary: Constitutional and Environmental Interactions in Rearing Four Breeds of Dogs

    | Contributor(s):: Scott, John Paul

  9. Progressive retinal atrophy in Schapendoes dogs: Mutation of the newly identified CCDC66 gene

    | Contributor(s):: Dekomien, Gabriele, Vollrath, Conni, Petrasch-Parwez, Elisabeth, Boevé, Michael H., Akkad, Denis A., Gerding, Wanda M., Epplen, Jörg T.

  10. Heterogeneity and phylogenetic relationships of community-associated methicillin-sensitive/resistant Staphylococcus aureus isolates in healthy dogs, cats and their owners

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Wan, M. T., Fu, S. Y., Lo, Y. P., Huang, T. M., Cheng, M. M., Chou, C. C.

    Aims: To investigate the distribution of staphylococcal enterotoxin genes (se) and the molecular features of community-associated methicillin-sensitive/resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MSSA/MRSA) isolates in the nostrils of healthy pets and their owners.Methods and...

  11. Genetic engineering and the integrity of animals

    | Contributor(s):: Vries, R. de

    Genetic engineering evokes a number of objections that are not directed at the negative effects the technique might have on the health and welfare of the modified animals. The concept of animal integrity is often invoked to articulate these kind of objections. Moreover, in reaction to the advent...

  12. Risks associated with genetic modification: an annotated bibliography of peer reviewed natural science publications

    | Contributor(s):: Weaver, S. A., Morris, M. C.

    An annotated bibliography is presented of peer-reviewed papers highlighting the human health, animal welfare, and environmental risks (concerning biodiversity in particular) associated with genetic modification. The bibliography is organized according to the nature of the risks in question: (1)...

  13. Contamination, crop trials, and compatibility. (Special issue: Ethics as a dimension of agrifood policy: selected papers from the 4th Congress of the European Society for Agricultural and Food Ethics)

    | Contributor(s):: Bruce, D.

    This paper examines the ethical and social questions that underlie the present UK discussion whether genetically modified (GM) crops and organic agriculture can coexist within a given region or are mutually exclusive. A European Commission report predicted practical difficulties in achieving...

  14. Exploiting abstract possibilities: a critique of the concept and practice of product patenting

    | Contributor(s):: Radder, H.

    Developments in biotechnology and genomics have moved the issue of patenting scientific and technological inventions toward the centre of interest. In particular, the patentability of genes of plants, animals, or humans and of genetically modified (parts of) living organisms has been discussed,...

  15. Molecular characterization of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus strains from pet animals and their relationship to human isolates

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Strommenger, B., Kehrenberg, C., Kettlitz, C., Cuny, C., Verspohl, J., Witte, W., Schwarz, S.

    Objectives: Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) isolates from pet animals were characterized and compared with human isolates from clonal complexes most prevalent in Central Europe. Methods: S. aureus isolates were investigated for their in vitro susceptibility to antimicrobial...

    | Contributor(s):: Brigman, Jonathan L., Mathur, Poonam, Harvey-White, Judith, Izquierdo, Alicia, Saksida, Lisa M., Bussey, Timothy J., Fox, Stephanie, Deneris, Evan, Murphy, Dennis L., Holmes, Andrew

    Growing evidence supports a major contribution of cortical serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine, 5-HT) to the modulation of cognitive flexibility and the cognitive inflexibility evident in neuropsychiatric disorders. The precise role of 5-HT and the influence of 5-HT gene variation in mediating this...
