Comparison of Atrogin-1/MAFbx mRNA Expression in the Gizzards of Egg- and Meat-Type Chickens
Bioscience, biotechnology and biochemistry
We examined atrogin-1/MAFbx mRNA expression in the smooth muscle of gizzards from egg-and meat-type chickens. Gizzard weight relative to body weight was significantly lower in the meat-type chickens than in the egg-type at 14 d of age. In contrast, the level of atrogin-1/MAFbx mRNA in the gizzard was significantly higher in the meat-type chickens than in the egg-type chickens. Thus atrogin-1/MAFbx mRNA expression in the smooth muscle of the gizzard was higher in meat-type chickens than indoi:10.1271/bbb.130490 pmid:24200787 fatcat:k2wbquzh5zampir7pjwmfpimku
