Novel Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms of the Caprine PC1 Gene and Association with Growth Traits


Proprotein convertase 1 (PC1) is an endopeptidase involved in proteolytic processing of peptide hormone precursors in granules of the regulated secretory pathway in endocrine cells. Mutations in the PC1 gene are thought to cause obesity, and multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants have been described for this gene. In this study, based on PCR… (More)
