Disease relevance of Chickens


Psychiatry related information on Chickens


High impact information on Chickens

  • Surprisingly, we found that both chicken (Gallus gallus) and the Western clawed frog (Xenopus tropicalis) lack the Hp gene [7].
  • The NMR structures of the recombinant prion proteins from chicken (Gallus gallus; chPrP), the red-eared slider turtle (Trachemys scripta; tPrP), and the African clawed frog (Xenopus laevis; xlPrP) are presented [8].
  • The AaVgR is a member of the low density lipoprotein receptor superfamily, sharing significant homology with the chicken (Gallus gallus) VgR and particularly the Drosophila melanogaster yolk protein receptor, in spite of a very different ligand for the latter [9].
  • CR1 is a short interspersed repetitive DNA element originally identified in the domestic chicken (Gallus gallus) [10].
  • Finally polyalanine domains in vertebrates are conserved between mammals and are rarer and shorter in Gallus gallus and Danio rerio [11].
