The continuous increase in poultry production over the last decades to meet the high growing demand and provide food security has attracted much concern due to the recent negative impacts of the most challenging environmental stressor, heat stress (HS), on birds. The poultry industry has responded by adopting different environmental strategies such...
Heat stress significantly impairs the growth performance of broilers, which causes serious losses to the poultry industry every year. Thus, understanding the performance of indigenous chicken breeds under such environment is crucial to address heat stress problem. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of heat stress (HS) on produ...
Rising environmental issues, animal welfare concerns and vulnerable food supply chain especially during pandemics, as COVID-19 demands an effective and long-term solution for food security in future. All of these challenges encourage the researchers to find more reliable and clean ways of food production such as cultured meat. This process involved...
Almost a decade ago, the sudden rise of breast muscle defects in fast-growing commercial broiler breeds challenged the broiler production industry and meat scientists to address the issue of these novel muscle abnormalities. After that, a widespread hypothesis showing a correlation between high muscle yield and incidence of these muscle myopathies...
The cGHR gene is considered one of the most important candidate genes that can affect chicken performance traits because of its vital function in growth and metabolism. Numerous studies have reported that mutation in cGHR gene causes dwarfism in different chicken breeds. However, mutations at several sites have been observed in different breeds. In...
Based on reports in the literature and search results on the circBase database, 8 circular transcripts of the mouse growth hormone receptor (GHR) gene were identified. In order to confirm the existence of the circular transcripts of the GHR gene (circGHRs) and to explore their expression patterns, the Kunming mouse (Mus musculus) was used as a rese...
Oxidative stress is inevitable in poultry production, and it affects the physiological, behavioral and biochemical status of growing chicken which ultimately deteriorates meat quality. Appearance, texture, juiciness, tenderness and odor are responsible for the overall meat quality as they are essential perceptible features, which determine the cons...
