PLAG1 and NCAPG-LCORL in livestock.
Fukushima, Japan. In Anim Sci J, Sep 2015
PLAG1 and/or NCAPG-LCORL, both of which are known as a locus for adult human height, have been detected for association with body weight/height in cattle and horses, and for selective sweep in dogs and pigs.
Genomic signatures reveal new evidences for selection of important traits in domestic cattle.
College Park, United States. In Mol Biol Evol, Mar 2015
In addition to well-known genes such as KIT, MC1R, ASIP, GHR, LCORL, NCAPG, WIF1, and ABCA12, we found evidence for a variety of novel and less-known genes under selection in cattle, such as LAP3, SAR1B, LRIG3, FGF5, and NUDCD3.
Conserved, extended MHC haplotypes.

Even for those who do not, extended haplotypes provide the means for identifying likely MLR-I-negative donor-recipients, and for identifying the genes involved in this function.
