The goats were housed under the same environment with free access to feed and water at the Aerbasi White Cashmere Goat
Breeding Farm (Inner Mongolia, China).
Xun Xu, Deputy Director of BGI, said, "The goat reference genome is an important stepping stone in the molecular breeding of cashmere goats
, and will help to advance the comparative studies on ruminants.
Inner Mongolia cashmere goat
fetal fibroblasts (GFb cells) were maintained as monolayer cultures in DMEM/F12 (Gibco, Paisley, PA49RF, Scotland, UK), supplemented with 10% fetal bovine serum (FBS), 100 U penicillin G/mL, and 100 mg streptomycin/mL (FBS, Hyclone Laboratories, Inc.
Most cashmere goats
today are raised in Northern China, Mongolia and Tibet.
The finest cashmere comes from the cashmere goat
, which lives in the highlands of Mongolia and Xinjiang in China.
To detect goat VEGF-mediated regrowth of hair, we cloned Inner Mongolia Cashmere goat
VEGF164 gene (JX524883.
Cashmere is valuable because of its rarity; the average cashmere goat
produces only about one-third pound of down per year.
These results were similar to our previous research on cashmere goat
grazing on native L.
To facilitate the further study of the function and regulation of S6 in Inner Mongolia Cashmere goat
cells, we cloned full-length S6 gene cDNA, measured its gene products in various tissues by quantitative real-time PCR and immunohistochemistry.
To study the expression and regulation of S6K1 in Inner Mongolia Cashmere goat
cells, we cloned the full-length S6K1 cDNA, measured its expression in tissues by quantitative real-time PCR and immunohistochemistry, and investigated its activity in goat fetal fibroblasts with regard to its regulation by the MAPK signaling pathway.
are found only in specific areas of Asia, with modern Cashmere goat
breeds generally originating from the territorial plateau of southwestern China and adjacent areas of central Asia (Tu, 1989).
The Inner Mongolian cashmere goat
is one of the best breeds of cashmere goat
in China and is an important source of income for Inner Mongolia region with the largest portion of income derived from cashmere (Bai et al.
The Inner Mongolian Cashmere goat
is one of the most excellent breed of Cashmere goat
in China and is an important source of income for the Inner Mongolia region with the largest portion derived from cashmere (Bai et al.
Determination of hair follicle characteristics, density and activity of Iranian cashmere goat
The study was performed at the white cashmere goat
stock farm of Inner Mongolia in China (latitude 39[degrees]06'N, longitude 107[degrees]59'E and at altitude of 1,500 m).
