Expression of the butyrophilin gene, a milk fat globule membrane protein, is associated with the expression of the alpha S1casein gene.


Previous in situ hybridization studies from our laboratory have shown that expression of certain milk protein genes, e.g. alpha-lactalbumin, is very high in most parts of the mammary glands of sheep and cattle, while in other areas containing an abundance of fat globules it is virtually zero (Molenaar et al., 1992). One possible explanation is that some… (More)
