The Brazilian herd consists mainly of Nelore cattle, which is known for its adaptability in tropical climates. However, the meat produced by Bos indicus is characterized by low intramuscular and subcutaneous fat content, which influences negatively on the meat quality. On the other hand, the meat of Bos indicus has presented significant desirable concentrations of fatty acids for human ...
Identification of polymorphisms with significant effects for feature meat tenderness in Nellore with subsequent sequencing of the identified regions and search for causal mutation
Health professionals have recommended a reduction in overall consumption of saturated fatty acids and an increase in the intake of unsaturated fatty acids. This has motivated the development of strategies that objective to alter the beef fatty acid composition to be more compatible with the consumer requirements. Many genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have identified genetic varian...
The beef cattle industry is of great economic importance to Brazil, however, despite the prominent position of national livestock in the economic scenario, it is characterized by low productivity and a large variation in the quality of meat produced, which compromises competitiveness of this market sector. The genetic improvement has been considered an important factor to increase this ...
