Y. Wang, Zhang, R. P., Zhao, Y. M., Li, Q. Q., Yan, X. P., Liu, J. Y., Gou, H., and Li, L., Effects of Pax3 and Pax7 expression on muscle mass in the Pekin duck (Anas platyrhynchos domestica), vol. 14, pp. 11495-11504, 2015.

This study aimed to investigate whether the differential expression of muscle development-related genes is one of the reasons why muscle development differs between Pekin, Jianchang, and Heiwu ducks, which are all domesticated duck breeds (Anas platyrhynchos domestica) breeds.
