Variation in the caprine keratin-associated protein 27-1 gene is associated with cashmere fiber diameter
Variation in some caprine keratin-associated protein (KAP) genes has been associated with cashmere fiber traits, but many KAP genes remain unidentified in goats. In this study, we confirm the identification of a KAP27-1 ...
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 ...
Variation in the yak lipin-1 gene and its association with milk traits
(Cambridge University Press on behalf of Hannah Dairy Research Foundation, 2020-05)
The aim of this research was to identify variation in the yak lipin-1 gene (LPIN1) and determine whether this variation affects milk traits. PCR-single stranded conformational polymorphism (PCR-SSCP) analysis was used to ...
