Chinese indigenous sheep can be classified into three types based on tail morphology: fat-tailed, fat-rumped, and thin-tailed sheep, of which the typical breeds are large-tailed Han sheep, Altay sheep, and Tibetan sheep, respectively. To unravel the genetic mechanisms underlying the phenotypic differences among Chinese indigenous sheep with tails of three(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate whether the angiotensin II type I receptor gene (AGTR1) A1166C polymorphism is associated with a high risk of diabetic nephropathy. METHODS The allele frequency and the genotype distribution of the AGTR1 A1166C polymorphism were studied in normal controls (157 cases), simple diabetes (141 cases, duration of diabetes >10 years),(More)
Our previous genome-wide association study in sheep revealed that OAR3-84073899.1 (SNP31) in intron 8 of the CAMKMT gene was significantly associated with post-weaning gain at the genomic level. Herein, we performed a replication study to investigate single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) within the CAMKMT gene exons, and 1000 bp of the 5'- and(More)
CONTEXT Nephrogenic diabetes insipidus (NDI) is caused by partial or complete renal resistance to the effects of antidiuretic hormone. Acquired NDI can be caused by electrolyte imbalances (eg, hypercalcemia), renal/extrarenal diseases (eg, chronic pyelonephritis), and drugs (eg, lithium toxicity). Syphilis has never been reported to cause NDI. OBJECTIVE(More)
2 SNPs were discovered in our previous genome-wide association study (GWAS): s58995.1 (rs420767326 A>G) in MEF2B gene and OAR3_115712045.1 (rs401775061 A>C) in TRHDE gene, which were significantly associated with post-weaning gain in sheep. Herein, we performed a replication experiment to investigate single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) within the MEF2B(More)
