Large-tailed han sheep, small-tailed han sheep, Mongolian sheep, Lanzhou large-tailed sheep and Yuxi fat-tailed sheep were selected, thirty each.
Figure 1 shows 750 bp amplified band of LHss of large-ailed han sheep, small tail han sheep, Yuxi fat-tailed sheep, Lanzhou large-tailed sheep and Mongolian sheep, which coincided with 800 bp in the target band.
Live weight of fat-tailed sheep is a leading selection sign that most exhaustively reflects organism's growth and development at different stages of ontogenesis.
5 months of age, is, first of all, explained by genetically predetermined maturity rate developed during evolution in fat-tailed sheep, high milkiness of ewes, and animals' better adaptation to the conditions in their breeding areas.
This indicated that the studied fat-tailed sheep population belongs to the genetic population with higher polymorphism information content.
Key words: Henan Fat-tailed sheep Microsatellite marker Genetic diversity.
Cloning of the heart fatty acid-binding protein (H-FABP) gene and its tissue-specific expression profile in the Lanzhou fat-tailed sheep
, Ovis aries.
As an additional result of this study, it is virtually seen on all of the phylogenetic tree diagrams that the fat-tailed sheep
were clearly separeted from the others.
