Characterisation of an ovine keratin associated protein (KAP) gene, which would produce a protein rich in glycine and tyrosine, but lacking in cysteine
The keratin-associated proteins (KAPs) are structural components of hair/wool fibres. All of the KAPs identified to date contain cysteine, which is thought to form disulphide bonds cross-linking the keratin intermediate ...
Identification of the ovine keratin-associated protein 2-1 gene and its sequence variation in four chinese sheep breeds
Keratin-associated proteins are important components of wool fibers. The gene encoding the high-sulfur keratin-associated protein 2-1 has been described in humans, but it has not been described in sheep. A basic local ...
