Regulation of milk fat synthesis by dietary fatty acids
The objectives of this thesis research were to determine the molecular mechanisms by which dietary fatty acids (FA) regulate lipogenic gene expression and milk fat synthesis. Principal component and multivariate analyses ...
The potential role of butyrophilin and xanthine oxidoreductase in controlling the amount and size of milk-fat droplets
The secretion of fat droplets from mammary epithelial cells requires the expression of two major proteins, butyrophilin1A1 (BTN) and xanthine oxidoreductase (XOR). Ablation of the BTN or XOR gene in mice results in the ...
