Variation in the KRTAP6-3 gene and its association with wool characteristics in Pakistani sheep breeds and breed-crosses
(Springer Nature B.V., 2020-06-15)
This study investigated variation in the keratin-associated proteins gene, KRTAP6-3, in 5 Pakistani sheep breeds/crosses using polymerase chain reaction-single strand confirmation polymorphism (PCR-SSCP) analysis. Different ...
Polymorphism in the ovine keratin-associated protein gene KRTAP7-1 and its association with wool characteristics
(Oxford University Press on behalf of the American Society of Animal Science, 2020-01)
The keratin-associated proteins (KAPs) are structural components of wool fibers and variation in the genes encoding the KAPs can affect wool traits. In this study, sequence variation in the ovine KAP7-1 gene (KRTAP7-1) was ...
Genetic variations and haplotypic diversity in the Myostatin gene of New Zealand cattle breeds
Myostatin (MSTN) is a circulating factor that is secreted by muscle cells, and that acts upon those cells to inhibit the proliferation of muscle fibres during pre-natal muscle growth. The Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) ...
