Expression of gonadotrophin subunit genes in sheep that were homozygous carriers and non-carriers of the Booroola fecundity gene FecB.

Abstract

Homozygous carriers (BB) of the Booroola fecundity gene FecB are characterized by high plasma concentrations of immunoreactive or biologically active FSH and, to a lesser extent, of immunoreactive LH, relative to non-carriers (++). Bovine cDNA probes for the alpha gonadotrophin, FSH beta and LH beta genes were used to investigate FecB-specific differences… (More)
