Variation in the FABP4 gene affects carcass and growth traits in sheep
(Elsevier on behalf of the American Meat Science Association, 2018-11)
Fatty acid-binding protein 4 (FABP4) participates in fatty-acid transportation and variation in the gene has been reported to affect fat deposition in mammals. To assess the effects of variation in FABP4 on carcass and ...
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 ...
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 ...
