Variation in the bovine FABP₄ gene affects milk yield and milk protein content in dairy cows
(Scientific Reports, 2015-06-12)
Fatty acid binding proteins (FABPs) bind long-chain fatty acids and are involved in their intracellular transport. Of the known bovine FABP genes, FABP₄ has been mapped to a region on chromosome 14 that contains quantitative ...
Effects of feed intake and genetics on tissue nitrogen-15 enrichment and feed conversion efficiency in sheep
(Oxford University Press on behalf of the American Society of Animal Science, 2015-12-01)
This study investigated the effects of sheep genetics and feed intake on nitrogen isotopic fractionation (Δ15N) and feed conversion efficiency (FCE; live weight gain/DMI), using a 2 × 2 factorial design, with 2 levels of ...
Polymorphism of KRT83 and its association with selected wool traits in Merino-cross lambs
Keratins are structural proteins in the cortex of wool fibres. It is thought that variation in the keratin genes (KRTs) affects wool structure and characteristics. Polymerase chain reaction-single stranded conformational ...
