Abstract:

Keratin-associated proteins are fibrillar proteins and are the vital components of hair and wool fibres as they are part of matrix of fibres and form a cross- linked network with the keratin intermediate filaments. Variation in sequence and expression pattern of KAP may affect fibre characteristics. In this study, we used direct DNA sequencing to analyse the goat HGT-KAP 7.1gene which codes for the protein responsible for the fineness of fibre. A single transversition at 95th position was detected in the KAP 7.1 sequence of chegu goat. This study would lead to screening of this single nucleotide variation in larger goat population for any possible association with fibre fineness, yield or processing properties
