- ... Zinc (Zn) is crucial to animals’ growth and homeostasis, as it actively regulates transcription factors, DNA, and protein synthesis. To date, there is little information on the Zn-induced transcriptomic changes in small ruminants. Therefore, the present study investigated the nutrigenomics-related effects of dietary Zn in sheep. Fifteen lactating crossbred ewes (3–4 years of age and 55–65kg body w ...
