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 ...
Identification and sequence analysis of the keratin-associated protein 24-1 (KAP24-1) gene homologue in sheep
Keratin-associated proteins (KAPs) are major structural components of hair and wool fibres, and play a critical role in determining the properties of the fibre. While over 100 KAP genes that have been grouped into 27 KAP ...
Allelic variation in ovine fatty acid-binding protein (FABP4) gene
(Springer Netherland, 2012-12)
The fatty acid-binding protein 4 (FABP4) plays a role in lipid metabolism and has been implicated in intra-cellular lipid transport. While FABP4 variation has been reported in some species, variation in the coding sequence ...
