18 gene specific primers (TLR2, NFKB1, IL2, IL16, TNF, IFNG, CXCR3, CCL1, CD81, CD84, RPS6KB2, STK17B, PRKCB1, MCL1, EEF1G, NFATC4, EEF1 and IER5) were used for real time expression profiling (24) (Table 1).
Immune response genes selected for the study (TLR2, NFKB1, IL2, IL16, TNF, IFNG, CXCR3, CCL1, CD81, CD84, RPS6KB2, STK17B, PRKCB1, MCL1, EEF1G, NFATC4, EEF1 and IER5) were amplified from cDNA of PBMCs (Fig.
Ten genes (TLR2, NFKB 1, TNF, IFNG, IL2, CXCR3, PRKCB1, RPS6KB2, STK17B and EEF1) were found significantly upregulated in PBMC's of indigenous Tharparkar cattle as compared to Vrindavani (Table 2).
In the present investigation, 10 genes under investigation (TLR2, NFKB1, TNF, IFNG, IL2, CXCR3, PRKCB1, RPS6KB2, STK17B and EEF1) displayed significantly higher expression in indigenous Tharparkar as compared to Vrindavani cattle.
