Table 1 Differentially expressed genes with a P-value < 0.01 and fold change ≥3 in liver tissue harvested 10 days prior to parturition from Holstein cows with (KET) or without (OVE) clinical ketosis during the first week postpartum. Both groups of cows were fed a diet containing 1.54 Mcal/kg of dry matter and 15.0% crude protein from − 21 days prepartum to calving, and a common lactation diet containing 1.75 Mcal/kg of dry matter and 17.5% crude protein

From: Hepatic metabolomics and transcriptomics to study susceptibility to ketosis in response to prepartal nutritional management
