Cloning, chromosomal localization, expression profile and association analysis of the porcine WNT10B gene with backfat thickness


The Wingless-type MMTV integration site (Wnt) family encodes secreted glycoproteins that are ligands for the frizzled family of seven-transmembrane receptors and the low density lipoprotein receptor-related protein family of co-receptors. The WNT10B gene inhibits differentiation of preadipocytes in vitro and impairs adipose development in vivo. In the… (More)
