  • Jónsdóttir, Sigríður (University of Iceland, School of Health Sciences, Faculty of Medicine, 2017-03)
    Insect bite hypersensitivity (IBH) is a type I allergy of horses with production of IgE and release of inflammatory mediators. It is caused by bites of midges of the genus Culicoides. The disease is a recurrent dermatitis characterized by pruritic skin ...
  • Ekman, stina; Lindahl, Anders H.; Rüetschi, Ulla; Jansson, Anna; Björkman, K.; Abrahamsson-Aurell, K.; Björnsdóttir, Sigríður; Löfgren, Maria; Mattsson Hultén, Lillemor; Skiöldebrand, Eva (Wiley, 2019-03-06)
    Molecular serum markers that can identify early reversible osteoarthritis (OA) in horses are lacking. Objectives: We studied serum concentrations of a novel cartilage oligomeric matrix protein (COMP) neo-epitope in horses subjected to short-term exercise ...
  • Sigurjonsdottir, Hrefna; Granquist, Sandra M. (Hið íslenska náttúrufræðifélag og Náttúruminjasafn Íslands, 2019)

  • Imsland, Freyja (Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis, 2015)
    Domestic animals have rich phenotypic diversity that can be explored to advance our understanding of the relationship between molecular genetics and phenotypic variation. Since the advent of second generation sequencing, it has become easier to ...
  • Wagner, Bettina; Perkins, Gillian; Babasyan, Susanna; Freer, Heather; Keggan, Alison; Goodman, Laura B.; Glaser, Amy; Torsteinsdóttir, Sigurbjörg; Svansson, Vilhjálmur; Björnsdóttir, Sigríður (Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2017-01-03)
    Neonatal foals respond poorly to conventional vaccines. These vaccines typically target T-helper (Th) cell dependent B-cell activation. However, Th2-cell immunity is impaired in foals during the first three months of life. In contrast, neonatal basophils ...
  • Leifsson, Rúnar (University of Iceland, School of Humanities, Faculty of History and Philosophy, 2018-05)
    In this thesis the ritual killing and burial of animals on grave-fields in Viking Age Iceland is critically re-evaluated, on a site-by-site basis, in order to characterize these customs and place them in a social and historical context. The foundation ...
  • Nistelberger, Heidi M.; Palsdottir, Albina Hulda; Star, Bastiaan; Leifsson, Rúnar; Gondek, Agata T; Orlando, Ludovic; Barrett, James H.; Hallsson, Jon; Boessenkool, Sanne (Elsevier BV, 2019-01)
    Horses are the most common grave goods found in Icelandic Viking Age graves. Horse skeletons have previously been sexed based on pelvis shape and the presence of canine teeth in male horses over 4–5 years of age. Morphological data has shown that all ...
  • Sigurjonsdottir, Hrefna; Haraldsson, Hans (2019)
    We explore how herd composition and management factors correlate with frequencies of social interactions in horse groups. Since the welfare of horses correlates with low aggression levels and social contact opportunities, information of this kind is ...
  • Wutke, Saskia; Benecke, Norbert; Sandoval-Castellanos, Edson; Döhle, Hans-Jürgen; Friederich, Susanne; Gonzalez, Javier; Hofreiter, Michael; Lõugas, Lembi; Magnell, Ola; Morales-Muniz, Arturo; Orlando, Ludovic; Reissmann, Monika; Ruttkay, Matej; Trinks, Alexandra; Ludwig, Arne; Palsdottir, Albina Hulda; Hallsson, Jon (Springer Nature, 2016-12-07)
    Horses have been valued for their diversity of coat colour since prehistoric times; this is especially the case since their domestication in the Caspian steppe in ~3,500 BC. Although we can assume that human preferences were not constant, we have only ...
