Variability of the caprine whey protein genes and their association with milk yield, composition and renneting properties in the Sarda breed: 2. The BLG gene.
The variability of the promoter region and the 3'UTR (exon-7) of the BLG gene, encoding the β-lactoglobulin, was investigated by sequencing in 263 lactating Sarda goats in order to assess itsExpand

The sheep growth hormone gene polymorphism and its effects on milk traits.
Growth hormone (GH) is encoded by the GH gene, which may be single copy or duplicate in sheep. The two copies of the sheep GH gene (GH1/GH2-N and GH2-Z) were entirely sequenced in one 106 ewes ofExpand

Polymorphism of Caprine SLC11A1 Gene and Relationships with Hygienic Characteristics of Milk
Summary Th e solute carrier family 11 member A1 (SLC11A1) gene is associated with resistance to infectious diseases. Genetic variability at the 3’ untranslated region (3’-UTR) of this gene is due toExpand

Modeling of coagulation, curd firming, and syneresis of milk from Sarda ewes.
This study investigated the modeling of curd-firming (CF) over time (CF(t)) of sheep milk. Milk samples from 1,121 Sarda ewes from 23 flocks were analyzed for coagulation properties.Expand

Association between the GHR, GHRHR and IGF1 gene polymorphisms and milk coagulation properties in Sarda sheep.
We investigated whether variation of the sheep Growth Hormone Receptor (GHR), Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone Receptor (GHRHR) and Insulin-Like Growth Factor 1 (IGF1) genes were associated with milkExpand
