Prolonged exposure to high temperature can significantly increase metabolism, depress appetite, reduce meat production and raise mortality in broilers. Because the cardiovascular system plays an important role to dissipate heat and transport oxygen, strong cardiac function is indispensable for birds to survive under heat stress. However, due to small hearts relative to body weight, modern broilers have high risk of heart failure at high temperature.
In this study, a Ross 708 line (modern broilers) and a Heritage broiler line (relaxed selection since the 1950s) were subjected to heat stress at 35℃  for 7 hours/day from 21 to 42 days ...

Increasing numbers of fat cells in adipose tissue are attributed to proliferation of preadipocytes or immature adipocytes in the early stages as well as adipogenic differentiation in the later stages of adipogenesis. Although both events are involved in the increase in fat cell numbers, they are contrary to each other in that the former requires cell cycle activity whereas the latter requires cell cycle withdrawal. Therefore, appropriate regulation of cell cycle inhibition is critical to adipogenesis.
To explore the important cell cycle inhibitors and study their expression in adipogenesis, a strategy was adopted that combined the Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO ...
