Variation in the ovine hormone-sensitive lipase gene (HSL) and its association with growth and carcass traits in New Zealand Suffolk sheep
(Springer Netherlands, 2014-04)
The hormone-sensitive lipase (HSL) plays an important role in the regulation of lipolysis in adipose tissues, by catalysing a rate-limiting step in triglyceride hydrolysis. Variation within the human HSL gene (HSL) has ...
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 ...
Genetic variation in the ovine uncoupling protein 1 gene: Association with carcass traits in New Zealand (NZ) Romney sheep, but no association with growth traits in either NZ Romney or NZ Suffolk sheep
The uncoupling protein 1 (UCP1) plays an important role in the regulation of lipolysis and thermogenesis in adipose tissues. Genetic variation within three regions (the promoter, intron 2 and exon 5) of the ovine UCP1 gene ...
