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


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)
