Polymorphisms in the ovine myostatin gene are associated with birth weight but not with weight gain in Iranian Makoei sheep.

Abstract

Myostatin, a transforming growth factor-beta superfamily member, has been well documented as a negative regulator of muscle growth and development. Myostatin, which has 376 amino acids, is synthesized as a precursor protein. Polymorphism of the myostatin gene in Makoei sheep was investigated by PCR and single-strand conformation polymorphism technique… (More)
