Study of Polymorphisms in the 5 ́ Flanking Region of the Ovine IGF-I Gene in Zel Sheep


The insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-I) gene has been described in several studies as a candidate gene for growth traits in farm animals. The objective of this study was to search for polymorphisms and gene regulatory sequences in the 5’ flanking region of the Iranian sheep insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) gene. The DNA of 131 sheep of the indigenous… (More)
