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 ...
Growth and carcass trait association with variation in the somatostatin receptor 1 (SSTR1) gene in New Zealand Romney sheep
(Taylor & Francis on behalf of the Royal Society of New Zealand, 2018-01-07)
Somatostatin receptors (SSTRs) are thought to regulate the growth inhibitory effect of somatostatin and play a role in regulating growth hormone secretion. In this study, polymerase chain reaction-single-stranded conformational ...
Variation in the ovine WFIKKN2 gene
WFIKKN2 may play a role in the regulation of muscle growth and development through its interaction with growth and differentiation factor 8 (GDF8) and growth and differentiation factor 11 (GDF11), but to date research into ...
Genetic diversity of selected genes that are potentially economically important in feral sheep of New Zealand
(BioMed Central Ltd., 2010)
Background: Feral sheep are considered to be a source of genetic variation that has been lost from their domestic counterparts through selection. Methods: This study investigates variation in the genes KRTAP1-1, KRT33, ...
