Band 3 deficiency with hereditary spherocytosis and hemolytic anemia in Japanese black cattle, band 3(Bov.Yamagata), is caused by a total lack of band 3 protein with an autosomal dominant inheritance. Genotyping for band 3 deficiency and sexing were successfully achieved in biopsied embryo cells with efficiencies of 98.4% and 97.4%, respectively. Transfer… CONTINUE READING
