    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

Microsatellite diversity of the Nordic type of goats in relation to breed conservation : How relevant is pure ancestry?

Conservation - Diversity - Goats - Microsatellite

In the last decades, several endangered breeds of livestock species have been re-established effectively. However, the successful revival of the Dutch and Danish Landrace goats involved crossing with exotic breeds and the ancestry of the current populations is therefore not clear. We have generated genotypes for 27 FAO-recommended microsatellites of these landraces and three phenotypically similar Nordic-type landraces and compared these breeds with central European, Mediterranean and south-west Asian goats. We found decreasing levels of genetic diversity with increasing distance from the south-west Asian domestication site with a south-east-to-north-west cline that is clearly steeper than the Mediterranean east-to-west cline. In terms of genetic diversity, the Dutch Landrace comes next to the isolated Icelandic breed, which has an extremely low diversity. The Norwegian coastal goat and the Finnish and Icelandic landraces are clearly related. It appears that by a combination of mixed origin and a population bottleneck, the Dutch and Danish Land-races are separated from the other breeds. However, the current Dutch and Danish populations with the multicoloured and long-horned appearance effectively substitute for the original breed, illustrating that for conservation of cultural heritage, the phenotype of a breed is more relevant than pure ancestry and the genetic diversity of the original breed. More in general, we propose that for conservation, the retention of genetic diversity of an original breed and of the visual phenotype by which the breed is recognized and defined needs to be considered separately.

Identification of mixed-valence metal clusters in drier solutions for alkyd-based paints by electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS)

cobalt(ii)-catalyzed decomposition - complexes - model
The oxidative drying of alkyd paints has many similarities with the way lipids are oxidized in biological systems. Metal salts based on Co, Fe and Mn are added to accelerate the oxidative drying of conventional alkyd paints. Although the mechanism by which alkyd paints dry has been the subject of numerous investigations, little information is available on the structure and the actual mechanism by which driers catalyze the oxidation process. In this communication we describe the identification of metal clusters in drier solutions by electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS). Evidence is provided for the presence of several metal clusters ranging from M3 up to M6 as well as the coexistence of mixtures of (mixed-valence) clusters in the same solution
