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 ...
Identification and characterization of circular RNA in lactating mammary glands from two breeds of sheep with different milk production profiles using RNA-Seq
CircRNA is a specific type of non-coding RNA that has been shown to have an important role in mammary gland (MG) activity, but no study of MG circRNA activity in sheep so far. In this study, the expression profile of ...
The mean staple length of wool fibre is associated with variation in the ovine keratin-associated protein 21-2 gene
Wool and hair fibres consist of a variety of proteins, including the keratin-associated proteins (KAPs). In this study, a putative ovine homologue of the human KAP21-2 gene (KRTAP21-2) was identified. It was located on ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
