Sequence characterization and comparative analysis of the gastrotropin gene in buffalo (Bubalus bubalis)

N. B. Stafuzza, Borges, M. M., and Amaral-Trusty, M. E. J., Sequence characterization and comparative analysis of the gastrotropin gene in buffalo (Bubalus bubalis), vol. 13, pp. 10934-10942, 2014.

In this study, we compared the complete sequence of the FABP6 gene from an animal representing the Murrah breed of the river buffalo (Bubalus bubalis) with the gene sequence from different mammals. The buffalo FABP6 gene is 6105 bp in length and is organized into four exons (67, 176, 90, and 54 bp), three introns (1167, 1737, and 2649 bp), a 5ꞌUTR (93 bp), and a 3ꞌUTR (72 bp). A total of 22 repetitive elements were identified at the intronic level, and four of these (L1MC, L1M5, MIRb, and Charlie4z) were identified as being exclusive to buffalo.
