Resumen

The objectives of this study were to measure gene expression in zebrafish and then identify SNP to be used as potential markers in a growth association study. We developed an approach where muscle samples collected from low- and high-growth fish were analyzed using RNA-Sequencing RNA-seq, and SNP were chosen from the genes that were differentially expressed between the low and high groups. A population of 24 families was fed a plant protein-based diet from the larval to adult stages. From a total of 440 males, 5 % of the fish from both tails of the weight gain distribution were selected. Total RNA was extracted from individual muscle of 8 low-growth and 8 high-growth fish. Two pooled RNA-Seq libraries were prepared for each phenotype using 4 fish per library. Libraries were sequenced using the Illumina GAII Sequencer and analyzed using the CLCBio genomic workbench software. One hundred and twenty-four genes were differentially expressed between phenotypes p value < 0.05 and FDR < 0.2. From these genes, 164 SNP were selected and genotyped in 240 fish samples. Marker-trait analysis revealed 5 SNP associated with growth in key genes Nars, Lmod2b, Cuzd1, Acta1b, and Plac8l1. These genes are good candidates for further growth studies in fish and to consider for identification of potential SNPs associated with different growth rates in response to a plant protein-based diet.Nota general
