Abstract Body temperature is the simplest parameter for evaluating the physiological conditions of animals under thermal stress. Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have identified candidate genes related to economic traits in domestic animals. The present study conducted a GWAS on body temperature changes in a broiler-type strain Taiwan country chickens (TCCs) under acute heat stress. A total of two hundred 30-week-old roosters of a broiler-type strain TCCs were used. The roosters were subje...

ABSTRACTHeat stress leads to decreased fertility in roosters. This study investigated the global protein expression in response to acute heat stress in the testes of a broiler-type strain of Taiwan country chickens (TCCs). Twelve 45-week-old roosters were randomly allocated to the control group maintained at 25°C, and three groups subjected to acute heat stress at 38°C for 4 h, with 0, 2, and 6 h of recovery, respectively. Testis samples were collected for hematoxylin and eosin staining, apoptos...

This study investigated global gene and protein expression in the small yellow follicle (SYF; 6–8 mm in diameter) tissues of chickens in response to acute heat stress. Twelve 30-week-old layer-type hens were divided into four groups: control hens were maintained at 25 °C while treatment hens were subjected to acute heat stress at 36 °C for 4 h without recovery, with 2-h recovery, and with 6-h recovery. SYFs were collected at each time point for mRNA and protein analyses. A total of 176 genes and...

Abstract The hypothalamus is the coordinating center for maintaining temperature homeostasis. In this study, global protein expression in the hypothalami of layer-type Taiwan country chickens in response to acute heat stress was investigated. Twelve 30-week-old female TCCs were divided into three acute heat-stressed groups, namely acute heat stress at 36 °C for 4 h with 0 h (without recovery, H4R0), 2 h (H4R2), or 6 h (H4R6) of recovery. A control group was maintained at 25 °C. Hypothalamus samp...

This study investigates the effects of moist- (water-cooking; WC) and dry-heat (oven-cooking; OC) on the quality, microstructure and sensory characteristics of native chicken breast meat. The results revealed that OC meat had a significantly higher cooking time, cooking loss, and shear force values and lower L* values. Protein solubility decreased after cooking in both cooking methods; however, no statistical difference was observed between WC and OC meats, whereas collagen solubility and myofib...

Acute heat stress severely impacts poultry production. The hypothalamus acts as a crucial center to regulate body temperature, detect temperature changes, and modulate the autonomic nervous system and endocrine loop for heat retention and dissipation. The purpose of this study was to investigate global gene expression in the hypothalamus of broiler-type B strain Taiwan country chickens after acute heat stress. Twelve 30-week-old hens were allocated to four groups. Three heat-stressed groups were...
