Genetic-Control of Phosphorus-Metabolism In Sheep

A.C. Field, John Woolliams

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Balance studies with chimaera-derived sheep have provided good evidence for genetic control of phosphorus metabolism. Plasma concentrations, urinary and endogenous fecal excretion and efficiencies of absorption of P were similar within but different between four sets of triplets. The results were confirmed with a larger group of chimaera.
