|Title:||Galectin-11, a potential marker of reduced worm burden||Contributor(s):||Preston, Sarah (author); Meeusen, Els (author); Walkden-Brown, Steve W (author) ; Piedrafita, D (author)||Publication Date:||2011||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/10212||Abstract:||Gastrointestinal nematodes (GIN) cost the Australian sheep industry $369 million annually. Currently the commercialised marker for selection of parasite resistant sheep is low worm egg counts (WEC) which has a number of disadvantages. Resistance to GIN is immune-mediated so improved understanding of immune mediators of resistance may lead to new markers of resistance. Galectin-11 and galectin-14 are relatively new molecules, with unknown function, secreted in large amounts into abomasal mucus during GIN infections. This study aims to determine whether galectin-11 and galectin-14 are associated with GIN resistance.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||Postgraduate Conference of the Sheep, Beef and Pork CRCs and MLA, Coffs Harbour, Australia, 24th - 26th October, 2011||Conference Details:||Postgraduate Conference of the Sheep, Beef and Pork CRCs and MLA, Coffs Harbour, Australia, 24th - 26th October, 2011||Source of Publication:||Postgraduate Conference of the Sheep, Beef and Pork CRCs and MLA Abstracts, p. 30-31||Publisher:||Australian Sheep Industry Co-operative Research Centre (CRC)||Place of Publication:||Australia||Field of Research (FOR):||070205 Animal Protection (Pests and Pathogens)
