    Physiological effects of major genes affecting ovulation rate in sheep

    Genetic mutations with major effects on ovulation rate in sheep were recently identified in two genes of the transforming growth factor (TGFβ) superfamily and a TGFβ receptor, namely bone morphogenetic protein 15...

    Positional cloning of the PIS mutation in goats and its impact on understanding mammalian sex-differentiation

    In goats, the PIS (polled intersex syndrome) mutation is responsible for both the absence of horns in males and females and sex-reversal affecting exclusively XX individuals. The mode of inheritance is dominan...

    The callipyge mutation and other genes that affect muscle hypertrophy in sheep

    Genetic strategies to improve the profitability of sheep operations have generally focused on traits for reproduction. However, natural mutations exist in sheep that affect muscle growth and development, and t...
