Effect of the polymorphism in 5' UTR region of pig prolactin gene on prolactin gene expression and reproduction performance in the female pig.

OBJECTIVES: The recent genetics and molecular biology progress seems to be a fascinating challenge for the interdisciplinary studies on the effects of genetic changes in gene structure that causes the modification of physiological functions of many important proteins including hormones. Pig prolactin is one of the interesting hormones f.....
