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 ...
Characterisation of an ovine keratin associated protein (KAP) gene, which would produce a protein rich in glycine and tyrosine, but lacking in cysteine
The keratin-associated proteins (KAPs) are structural components of hair/wool fibres. All of the KAPs identified to date contain cysteine, which is thought to form disulphide bonds cross-linking the keratin intermediate ...
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 ...
