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 ...
Identification of more than two paternal haplotypes of the ovine fatty acid-binding protein 4 (FABP4) gene in half-sib families: Evidence of intragenic meiotic recombination
(Public Library of Science, 2014-02-11)
The fatty acid binding protein 4 (FABP4) plays an important role in the regulation of lipid metabolism in mammals. In this study, two regions of ovine FABP4 spanning exon 2-intron 2 and exon 3-intron 3 were investigated ...
Identification of four new gene members of the KAP6 gene family in sheep
KAP6 is a high glycine-tyrosine keratin-associated protein (HGT-KAP) family. This family is thought to contain multiple genes. In this study, we used a KRTAP6 coding sequence to search the Ovine Genome (v3.1) and identified ...
Variation in the ovine WFIKKN2 gene
WFIKKN2 may play a role in the regulation of muscle growth and development through its interaction with growth and differentiation factor 8 (GDF8) and growth and differentiation factor 11 (GDF11), but to date research into ...
