Mutations in the genes for oocyte-derived growth factors gdf9 and bmp15 are associated with both increased ovulation rate and sterility in cambridge and belclare sheep (ovis aries)1
(Oxford University Press (OUP), 2004-04-01)
Belclare and Cambridge are prolific sheep breeds, the origins of which involved selecting ewes with exceptionally high litter size records from commercial flocks. The variation in ovulation rate in both breeds is consistent ...
Dna tests in prolific sheep from eight countries provide new evidence on origin of the booroola (fecb) mutation1
(Oxford University Press (OUP), 2002-06-01)
Recent discoveries that high prolificacy in sheep carrying the Booroola gene (FecB) is the result of a mutation in the BMPIB receptor and high prolificacy in Inverdale sheep (FecX(1)) is the result of a mutation in the ...
Investigation of prolific sheep from uk and ireland for evidence on origin of the mutations in bmp15 (fecxg, fecxb) and gdf9 (fecgh) in belclare and cambridge sheep
(Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2013-01-02)
This paper concerns the likely origin of three mutations with large effects on ovulation rate identified in the Belclare and Cambridge sheep breeds; two in the BMP15 gene (FecX(G) and FecX(B)) and the third (FecG(H)) in ...
Birth, evolution, and transmission of satellite-free mammalian centromeric domains
(Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, 2018-04-30)
Mammalian centromeres are associated with highly repetitive DNA (satellite DNA), which has so far hindered molecular analysis of this chromatin domain. Centromeres are epigenetically specified, and binding of the CENPA ...
