Abstract

"\"SREBP (sterol regulatory element binding protein) is a family of transcription factor that regulates the expression levels of some genes involved in fatty acid biosynthesis and uptake. SREBP-1 is an isoform member of SREBP family, and it controls the synthesis of fatty acids in various tissues such as the mammary gland. In cattle mutations in exon 14 and a deletion in intron 5 showed to influence the amount of milk fat yield and carcass traits. The aim of the present study was to screen single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) or insertion\\\/deletion in the exon 14 and intron 5 of the SREPB-1 gene and to evaluate possible relationship with milk traits in Sarda goats. Two-hundred multiparous goat, from 3 to 6 years-old and in their third to fourth lactation, were randomly chosen from four farm located in Sardinia.
