  1. 1. Can eye-temperature variation from exercise explain behaviour profiles among trotting horses?

    Kandidat-uppsats, SLU/Dept. of Animal Breeding and Genetics

    Författare :Paulina Berglund; [2019]
    Nyckelord :eye-temperature; horse behaviour; stress; trotting horses; harness racing; Standardbred; coldblooded trotter;

    Sammanfattning : Eye-temperature measured with infrared thermography have in previous studies showed significant correlation to competition results in harness racing. Studies also show a positive correlation between serotonin level in blood and eye-temperature which indicates that this method could serve as an indicator of stress and welfare in harness racing.

  2. 2. Is a potential regulatory region in the vicinity of EDN3 linked to the performance in Standardbred horses?

    Master-uppsats, SLU/Dept. of Animal Breeding and Genetics

    Författare :Linda Novácková; [2018]
    Nyckelord :performance; standardbred; EDN3; endothelin-3;

    Sammanfattning : Standardbred horses (SBs) are used in harness racing. Their common breeding history with Coldblooded trotters (CBTs) led us to the hypothesis, that the same region associated with race performance in CBTs, may be linked to the performance of SBs as well. EDN3 SNP (g.22:45748491C>T), was found to be associated (p. LÄS MER

  3. 3. The role of Myostatin polymorphisms in the Finnhorse and Shetland pony breeds

    Master-uppsats, SLU/Dept. of Animal Breeding and Genetics

    Författare :Laura Bas Conn; [2017]
    Nyckelord :Horse; Myostatin; Finnhorse; Shetland pony; Harness racing; Performance; Conformation;

    Sammanfattning : Myostatin, encoded by the MSTN gene, is a member of the transforming growth factor β that normally acts to limit skeletal muscle mass by regulating both the number and growth of muscle fibers. Natural mutations that decrease the amounts of myostatin and/or inhibit its function have been identified in several cattle, sheep and dog breeds, where loss-of-function mutations cause increased skeletal muscle mass and produce a phenotype known as “double-muscling”.

  4. 4. The role of myostatin in Coldblooded trotter harness racing performance

    Master-uppsats, SLU/Dept. of Animal Breeding and Genetics

    Författare :Katrine Petäjistö; [2016]
    Nyckelord :horse; myostatin; Coldblooded trotter; harness racing; performance;

    Sammanfattning : Myostatin (MSTN) är en gen som begränsar massan av skelettmuskler genom att reglera både antalet och tillväxten av muskelfibrer. Mutationer i den här genen resulterar i en dubbeltmusklad fenotyp noterad hos ett flertal boskapsraser, hundar och människor. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Association of the DMRT3 nonsense mutation with pattern of locomotion in five different horse breeds

    Master-uppsats, SLU/Dept. of Animal Breeding and Genetics

    Författare :Niina Kangas; [2013]
    Nyckelord :DMRT3; stoppmutation; locomotion pattern; Icelandic Horse; Standardbred; Coldblooded Trotter; Morgan; American Curly;

    Sammanfattning : A nonsense mutation in the DMRT3 gene has been shown to have a large impact on pattern of locomotion in horses. Horses that can perform several other gaits in addition to the normally occurring gaits, walk, trot and canter, are often hetero (CA)- or homozygous (AA) for this nonsense mutation. LÄS MER
