Dominant Red Coat Color in Holstein Cattle Is Associated with a Missense Mutation in the Coatomer Protein Complex, Subunit Alpha (COPA) GeneDownload
Coat color in Holstein dairy cattle is primarily controlled by the melanocortin 1 receptor (MC1R) gene, a central determinant of black (eumelanin) vs. red/brown pheomelanin synthesis across animal species. The major MC1R alleles in Holsteins are Dominant Black (MC1RD) and Recessive Red (MC1Re). A...
Annual trends of the Photochemical Reflectance Index (PRI) and pigment content in evergreen conifer leaves were monitored over two years from 2011 to 2013. During the second year, chlorophyll fluorescence and gas exchange were included to examine the spring recovery of photosynthesis. All the...
