Society for Theriogenology members, researchers from Washington State University and University of Calgary, studied miRNA regulation of genes in bovine uterine disease, opening new avenues to study functional genomics in the search for better diagnostic and treatment options.
Drs. Vanmathy Kasimanickam (WSU) and John Kastelic (UofC) recently published their work on bovine metritis in “Scientific Reports”, a journal from Nature group (Sci Rep. 2016 Jul 11;6:29509). They detected up or down regulation of several miRNAs involved in various biological processes, including responding to uterine infection, mediating uterine inflammation, and clearing infectious agents and inflammatory products.
The Society for Theriogenology is an organization of veterinarians dedicated to animal reproduction, whose mission is to promote standards of excellence in reproductive medicine, to provide outreach and education to veterinarians, and to foster continual improvements in theriogenology.
