CCNA2 gene

Identification of single nucleotide polymorphisms in the CCNA2 gene and its association with wool density in Rex rabbits

S. J. Chen, Liu, T., Liu, Y. J., Dong, B., Huang, Y. T., and Gu, Z. L., Identification of single nucleotide polymorphisms in the CCNA2 gene and its association with wool density in Rex rabbits, vol. 10, pp. 3365-3370, 2011.

The Rex rabbit is a typical fur breed. Wool density, hair length, wool fineness, and hide area are the main indices of fur quality. We previously found that the CCNA2 gene plays an important role in hair follicle initiation and development, and it is involved in the distinctive wool density of the Rex rabbit. It is an important candidate gene for wool density selection through marker-assisted selection. We conducted an association study to identify single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) within the CCNA2 gene and their ligands associated with wool density.
