Glucose is the major precursor of lactose synthesis in the mammary gland. Lactose the major carbohydrate and osmolyte of milk, controls milk volume and its concentration. Glycosylated haemoglobin (HbG) is a retrospective measure of mean blood glucose level and it is largely unaffected by recent physiological conditions and environmental events. The purposes(More)
The β(1,4)-galactosyltransferase-I gene (β4galt1) encodes the catalytic part of the enzyme lactose synthase, responsible of lactose synthesis in the mammary gland. The complete coding region of the gene was screened for the presence of allelic variation among a sample of 1,200 Iranian Holstein cows, using PCR-SSCP technique followed by sequencing. Nine(More)
The enzyme rhodanese (EC 2.8.1.1) is an ubiquitous enzyme which is present in all living organisms, from bacteria to man. It is speculated that this enzyme plays a central role in cyanide detoxification. However, its wide tissue distribution suggests this enzyme might perform other functions beside cyanide detoxification. Although the distribution of(More)
