Biotechnology for improving the herd of goats producing recombinant human lactoferrin









Linked profile in other language
Svetlana Gracheva
The Scientific and Practical Center on Animal Husbandry offers consumers a biotechnology for improving the herd of goats producing recombinant human lactoferrin, based on the use of new hormonal schemes for inducing superovulation in donor animals under a license agreement. The Center is looking for partners to conclude an research cooperation agreement.
For the first time in the Republic of Belarus, a biotechnology is presented based on the use of new hormonal schemes for inducing superovulation in donor animals and stimulating estrus synchronization in recipients, developing methods for the extraction and transplantation of embryos, and creating a scale for the morphological assessment of biomaterial, which makes it possible to purposefully breed transgenic animals, taking into account the presence of a target protein in milk.

The developed biotechnology is an interconnected system of scientifically based methodological and practical developments focused on achieving the priority goal of obtaining desirable genotypes unique in terms of the production of biologically active human protein and their use in the breeding process of improving animals, focused on the economically determined content of recombinant human lactoferrin in milk.

The development of a system of biotechnological techniques and methods for improving animals based on the study of physiological processes occurring in the body, due to the presence of an embedded allogeneic genetic material, will help increase the concentration of the "protein of interest" in milk to solve the problems of increasing the efficiency of herd management and reducing the cost of the target product.
Advantages and Innovations
The practical implementation of biotechnology will contribute to a more efficient use of the reproductive potential of goat-producers of human lactoferrin in accelerating the process of creating intrapopulation lines and families of animals and their monitoring, the formation and replenishment of cryobanks of sperm and embryos of transgenic genotypes, and the planned regulation of the number of producer animals, depending on the availability of processing facilities and market needs for products with this recombinant bio-derived glycoprotein.

Additional comments
The Scientific and Practical Center for Animal Husbandry of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus is the only scientific center in the country that conducts research in the field of breeding, reproduction, keeping technology and effective diets for feeding farm animals. Coordinates the activities of four subsidiary unitary enterprises. The main goal of the Scientific and Practical Center is to concentrate the scientific potential of the republic on improving the efficiency of animal husbandry through the comprehensive conduct of scientific research and the introduction of scientific developments into production, their author's support, as well as the advanced training of livestock specialists through courses, seminars, conferences, postgraduate and doctoral studies.

The main directions of scientific and scientific-technical activity of the organization are:
- Carrying out fundamental and applied research aimed at developing effective methods for the accelerated rock-forming process and the reproduction of farm animals;
- Improvement of bred in the republic and breeding of new breeds, crosses, types and lines of farm animals (dairy and beef cattle, pigs, horses and sheep), birds and fish;
- Development of environmentally friendly technologies for feeding, keeping, reproduction and use of animals, ensuring the maximum manifestation of their genetic potential with minimal labor, energy and feed;
- Development of new compositions of feed and feed additives based on local sources of raw materials;
- Finding ways to increase the efficiency of the transformation of feed energy into livestock products;
- Development of therapeutic, prophylactic and diagnostic veterinary preparations;
- Improving the technology of feeding, keeping and using animals, birds and fish;
- Training of scientific personnel and advanced training of zootechnical specialists.
