These results preliminarily showed that G841A of the INHA gene was a potential marker for improving litter size in goats.
Physical mapping by fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) had placed INHA on caprine chromosome 2q41-42 (Goldammer et al.
The Ala257Thr missense mutation in human INHA gene also had high statistical significance in POF, indicating that INHA gene was a strong candidate gene for ovarian failure (Dixit et al.
Additionally, many studies showed that single base substitutions in DNA sequence of INHA gene gave rise to fertility changes in sheep and goats.
identified that the polymorphism of 5' promoter region of INHA gene could affect litter size significantly in three goat breeds (Hou et al.
Based on its important role in reproduction, INHA gene was considered as a candidate for the prolificacy of Jining Grey goat.
I would like to express my gratitude to INHA
for having given a warm home to RIdIM for over four years and to Florence Getreau and Jean-Michel Nectoux for having successfully negotiated this option for RIdIM.
I don't want to scare mums either but this is the reality and the help I got from the INHA
We would like to also extend our gratitude to both our former board member and actual honorary member, Florence Getreau, and to Jean Michel Nectoux, INHA's former representative on the Commission Mixte, for their enormous and essential efforts in establishing the International RIdIM Center at INHA.
RIdIM will always feel close to INHA with gratitude and friendship and will miss the particular friendly and warm relationship established during the four passing years as it was also expressed in the farewell cocktail party INHA organized for RIdIM.
After eight years of work at INHA
his contract could not be extended and he therefore was appointed general editor of the Complete Works of Gabriel Faure at the Institut de Recherche sur le Patrimoine Musical en France (IRPMF).
To conclude this report I would like to express my gratitude to all who have supported the work of RIdIM during the last three years, particularly the members of the Commission Mixte and its advisory members, the sponsoring societies, INHA
and so many other individuals around the world.
