AGPAT6 polymorphism and its association with milk traits of dairy goats

C. He, Wang, C., Chang, Z. H., Guo, B. L., Li, R., Yue, X. P., Lan, X. Y., Chen, H., and Lei, C. Z., AGPAT6 polymorphism and its association with milk traits of dairy goats, vol. 10, pp. 2747-2756, 2011.

As one of the eight members in the 1-acylglycerol-3-phosphate-O-acyltransferase (AGPATs) family, AGPAT6 is a crucial enzyme for the biosynthesis of glycerolipids and triacylglycerol in eukaryotes, as well as catalyzing the conversion from lysophosphatidic acid to phosphatidic acid. AGPAT6 can be considered as a candidate gene for regulating milk composition. DNA sequencing and PCR-RFLP methods were applied to detect genetic variation in the AGPAT6 gene in 549 Chinese dairy goats.
