Characterization of footrot bacteria Dichelobacter nodosus using PCR amplification and DNA sequence analysis
(TÜBİTAK The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey, 2006)
Dichelobacter nodosus is an essential causative agent of footrot in ruminants, particularly in sheep, goats and cattle. In this study, more than 100 footrot samples were collected from 4 different farming regions in New ...
Improving the quality of wool through the use of gene markers
(South African Society for Animal Science, 2009)
This study aimed at identifying gene markers associated with wool quality traits in Merino and Merino Cross sheep using a candidate gene approach. Polymerase chain reaction-single strand conformational polymorphism (PCR-SSCP) ...
The role of Dichelobacter nodosus and Fusobacterium necrophorum in footrot in New Zealand
The aim of the research was to to elucidate the role that F. necrophorum and D. nodosus play in footrot singly or together in a pastoral farming system.
Role of bovine MHC genes in resistance to mastitis
In this research we have used the MHC typing technologies we have developed forsheep, in dairy cattle. We have identified eleven alleles at the Bovine DQA2 locus to date,including two new sequences (Accession Numbers AF ...
Identification of the caprine keratin-associated protein 20-2 (KAP20-2) gene and its effect on cashmere traits
The gene encoding the high glycine/tyrosine keratin-associated protein 20-2 (KAP20-2) gene has been described in humans, but has not been identified in any livestock species. A search for similar sequences in the caprine ...
Identification of the ovine keratin-associated protein 26-1 gene and its association with variation in wool traits
Keratin-associated proteins (KAPs) are structural components of wool and hair fibres, and are believed to play a role in defining the physico-mechanical properties of the wool fibre. In this study, the putative ovine ...
Variation in the ovine KAP6-3 gene (KRTAP6-3) is associated with variation in mean fibre diameter-associated wool traits
(MDPI AG, 2017)
Polymerase chain reaction-single stranded conformational polymorphism (PCR-SSCP) analysis was used to investigate variation in the ovine KAP6-3 gene (KRTAP6-3) in 383 Merino × Southdown-cross lambs from four sire-lines, ...
Polymorphism of KRT83 and its association with selected wool traits in Merino-cross lambs
Keratins are structural proteins in the cortex of wool fibres. It is thought that variation in the keratin genes (KRTs) affects wool structure and characteristics. Polymerase chain reaction-single stranded conformational ...
Variation in the KAP6-1 gene in Chinese Tan sheep and associations with variation in wool traits
(Elsevier on behalf of International Goat Association, 2017-09)
The keratin-associated protein KAP6-1 gene (KRTAP6-1) was investigated for its effect on wool traits in Chinese Tan sheep. Two previously identified KRTAP6-1 variants (A and B) and two newly identified KRTAP6-1 variants ...
Identification of the association between FABP4 gene polymorphisms and milk production traits in Sfakia sheep
(Copernicus Publications on behalf of the Leibniz Institute for Farm Animal Biology (FBN), 2019-07-15)
The aim of this study was to estimate the effect of variation in the fatty acid binding protein 4 gene (FABP4) on milk production traits in Greek Sfakia sheep. Polymerase chain reaction – single-stranded conformational ...
