Effects of different genotypes of OLR1 gene SNP loci on carcass quality traits
The OLR1 gene was reported to possess complex biological functions , especially regarding degradation of low-density lipoprotein and glucose metabolism in liver.
The bovine OLR1 gene localizes on chromosome 18, has 6 exons , and is highly expressed in lung, liver and adipose tissue .
Another study was carried out to reveal haplotype and phylogenetic analysis of OLR1
gene in Jaffarabadi and Surti by Shabir et al.

OLR1 gene has been reported to affect long chain fatty acid composition of milk.
For the purpose of analysis of OLR1 protein in river buffaloes, standard three-dimensional protein model of OLR1 was retrieved from RCSB-PDB No-1YXJ (www.rcsb.org/pdb/explore.do?structureId).
Residues A68G and K89E were not found in some functionally significant region but R181T was found as part of Domain-3 of the OLR1 protein (Fig-3) which was strongly associated with fat synthesis.
According to the instructions from the normal agarose gel DNA recovery kit, the specific band of GB pig OLR1 gene was recovered from 1.5% normal agarose gel, the recovery product was then connected to pMD-19T vector, and transformed to competent cells for sequencing.
