Identification of the ovine keratin-associated protein 2-1 gene and its sequence variation in four chinese sheep breeds
Keratin-associated proteins are important components of wool fibers. The gene encoding the high-sulfur keratin-associated protein 2-1 has been described in humans, but it has not been described in sheep. A basic local ...
Identification of caprine KRTAP28‐1 and its effect on cashmere fiber diameter
The keratin‐associated proteins (KAPs) are constituents of cashmere fibers and variation in many KAP genes (KRTAPs) has been found to be associated with fiber traits. The gene encoding the high‐sulphur KAP28‐1 has been ...
