High impact information on SLC27A3


Biological context of SLC27A3

  • On the basis of comparative mapping between cattle/sheep and human for milk trait quantitative trait loci (QTL) on BTA3/OAR1, annexin A9 (ANXA9) and solute carrier family 27 (fatty acid transporter), member 3 (SLC27A3) were selected as candidate genes for fat content (FC) in sheep milk [2].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of SLC27A3

  • Direct sequencing of PCR products amplified from different cattle breeds revealed 1, 4, 4 and 2 SNPs for ACP6, CGN,ANXA9 and SLC27A3, respectively [3].
