Genetic variation in the 5'UTR of the KRT2.13 gene of sheep
(Wiley on behalf of the Japanese Society of Animal Science, 2012-03)
KRT2.13 is a type II keratin wool intermediate filament (IF) protein. Extensive variation was revealed in the 5′ untranslated region (UTR) of the ovine KRT2.13 gene (KRT2.13) using polymerase chain reaction – single strand ...
Immune development and performance characteristics of Romney sheep selected for either resistance or resilience to gastrointestinal nematodes
(Elsevier on behalf of American Association of Veterinary Parasitologists (AAVP), the European Veterinary Parasitology College (EVPC) and the World Association for the Advancement of Veterinary Parasitology (WAAVP), 2018-01-30)
Immunological and performance characteristics were explored in Romney sheep from lines selected for either resistance or resilience to parasite infection. At a mean 78 days-of-age, twin lambs from a line selected for ...
Polymorphism in the ovine keratin-associated protein gene KRTAP7-1 and its association with wool characteristics
(Oxford University Press on behalf of the American Society of Animal Science, 2020-01)
The keratin-associated proteins (KAPs) are structural components of wool fibers and variation in the genes encoding the KAPs can affect wool traits. In this study, sequence variation in the ovine KAP7-1 gene (KRTAP7-1) was ...
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 ...
Differentially phosphorylated proteins in the crimped and straight wool of Chinese Tan sheep
Proteins can be post-translationally modified and this can be important in the regulation of cellular processes and function. However, little is known about whether protein phosphorylation plays a role in regulating wool ...
The opportunity to eradicate Peste des petits ruminants
(American Association of Immunologists, 2016-05-01)
Peste des petits ruminants (PPR) is a highly infectious disease of sheep and goats that is caused by PPR virus, a member of the genus Morbillivirus that includes the viruses that cause rinderpest (RP) in cattle. RP was the ...
