Technical note: A simplified PCR-based assay for the characterization of two prolactin variants that affect milk traits in sheep breeds
(Elsevier Inc., 2010)
In the present study, a rapid and cost-effective PCR-based assay was developed for the genetic identification of 2 different variants within intron 2 of the prolactin gene. This polymorphism has previously been associated ...
Development of a novel PCR based analytical protocol for the characterization of the two variants of prolactin gene that affect milk yield in sheep breeds
Prolactin is a lactogenic hormone which plays a significant role in milk production in mammals, and its depletion in sheep provokes severe reduction of milk secretion. Two different variants within intron 2 of the prolactin ...
Identification of established genetic variants associated with milk traits
The present study investigated the genetic diversity of small ruminant breeds of Cyprus, regarding β-lactoglobulin (β-LG) genotypes and the existence of bovine single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). In total, 366 animals ...
