Identification of more than two paternal haplotypes of the ovine fatty acid-binding protein 4 (FABP4) gene in half-sib families: Evidence of intragenic meiotic recombination
(Public Library of Science, 2014-02-11)
The fatty acid binding protein 4 (FABP4) plays an important role in the regulation of lipid metabolism in mammals. In this study, two regions of ovine FABP4 spanning exon 2-intron 2 and exon 3-intron 3 were investigated ...
Halplotypes of the ovine ADRB3 gene (ADRB3) and their association with post-weaning growth in New Zealand Suffolk sheep
(Springer Netherlands, 2013-08)
The β3-adrenergic receptor (ADRB3) regulates thermogenesis and lipolysis in brown and white adipose tissue. Previously, sixteen ovine ADRB3 haplotypes have been defined. In this study, the relationship between these ADRB3 ...
Haplotyping using a combination of polymerase chain reaction–single-strand conformational polymorphism analysis and haplotype-specific PCR amplification
A single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) may have an impact on phenotype, but it may also be influenced by multiple SNPs within a gene; hence, the haplotype or phase of multiple SNPs needs to be known. Various methods for ...
Detection of sequence variation and genotyping of polymorphic genes using polymerase chain reaction stem-loop conformational polymorphism analysis
Here we describe a technique we have named polymerase chain reaction stem-loop conformational polymorphism (PCR-SLCP) analysis for screening DNA sequence variation. This technique uses PCR primers with adapters at the 5′ ...
Effect of variation in ovine WFIKKN₂ on growth traits appears to be gender-dependent
(Macmillan Publishers Limited, part of Springer Nature., 2015-07-22)
WFIKKN₂ may play a role in the regulation of muscle growth and development, but to date there have been no reports on the effect of variation in WFIKKN₂ on growth and carcass traits in livestock. In this study, the effect ...
Two single nucleotide polymorphisms in the promoter of the ovine myostatin gene (MSTN) and their effect on growth and carcass muscle traits in New Zealand Romney sheep
Myostatin is a negative regulator of muscle growth and development in mammals, and variation in ovine myostatin gene (MSTN) has been demonstrated to be associated with variation in the muscularity of sheep. Polymerase chain ...
