Identification of the ovine keratin-associated protein 21-1 gene and its association with variation in wool traits
Keratin-associated proteins (KAPs) are key constituents of wool and hair fibers. In this study, an ovine KAP gene encoding a HGT-KAP protein was identified. The gene was different from all of the HGT-KAP genes identified ...
Variation in the lipin 1 gene is associated with birth weight and selected carcass traits in New Zealand romney sheep
Lipin 1 plays an important role in lipid metabolism. In this study; we searched for variation in the ovine lipin 1 gene (LPIN1) in three gene regions (a 5′ non-coding region; a region containing an alternatively spliced ...
Tissue expression and variation of the DGAT2 gene and its effect on carcass and meat quality traits in yak
Diacylglycerol acyltransferase-2 (DGAT2) plays a key role in the synthesis of animal triglycerides (TGs). This study investigated the relative expression of the DGAT2 gene in tissues, variation in the gene, and its association ...
