Polymorphism of the VEGF gene and its association with growth traits in four goat breeds

  • 2010
  • Issue: 1
  • Volume: 40
Q.J. Jin, X.T. Fang, C.L. Zhang, L. Yang, J.J. Sun, D.X. Chen, X.Y. Shi, Y. Du, X.Y. Lan and H. Chen Page: 33 - 40

The vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is a regulator of angiogenesis which is an important physiological adaptation to increased metabolic demand. Thus, mutations of this gene may exert a significant influence on animal growth. We screened the exons of the…

Leptin gene polymorphism in Indian Sahiwal cattle by single strand conformation polymorphism (SSCP) (Short communication)

  • 2008
  • Issue: 2
  • Volume: 38
P.P. Dubey, Ashwani Sharma, D.S. Gour, Prashant, Anubhav Jain, C.S. Mukhopadhyay, Avtar Singh, B.K. Joshi and Dinesh Kumar Page: 131 - 135

Leptin, a 16-Kilo dalton protein produced by the obesity (ob) gene, plays an important role in the regulation of feed intake, energy metabolism, growth and reproduction in cattle. The genetic variation of the leptin gene in Sahiwal cattle (Bos indicus)…
