Leptin, interleukin-2 (IL-2) and interleukin-6 (IL-6) have role in thermoregulation in animals. Therefore, the present study was undertaken to investigate the changes in expression profile of mRNA of leptin, interleukin-2 (IL-2) and interleukin-6 (IL-6) during peak winter, moderate cold and peak summer in PBMCs of goats (Capra hircus). Blood samples were taken from the goats of 2 different regions; tropical and temperate, each having 3 age groups (n=6 in each), during all 3 seasons. PBMCs were… CONTINUE READING
