Abstract

In pigs, the perinatal period is the most critical time for survival. Piglet maturation, which occurs atthe end of gestation, leads to a state of full development after birth. Therefore, maturity is an importantdeterminant of early survival. Skeletal muscle plays a key role in adaptation to extra-uterine life, e.g.glycogen storage and thermoregulation. In this study, we performed microarray analysis to identifythe genes and biological processes involved in piglet muscle maturity. Progeny from two breeds withextreme muscle maturity phenotypes were analyzed at two time points during gestation (gestationaldays 90 and 110). The Large White (LW) breed is a selected breed with an increased rate of mortalityat birth, whereas the Meishan (MS) breed produces piglets with extremely low mortality at birth. Theimpact of the parental genome was analyzed with reciprocal crossed fetuses.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 18 September 2014.
All research outputs
#3,570,338
of 4,507,652 outputs
Outputs from BMC Genomics
#3,551
of 4,113 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#87,052
of 118,013 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Genomics
#257
of 280 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 4,507,652 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 3rd percentile – i.e., 3% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 4,113 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.4. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 118,013 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 280 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
