The Highly Prolific Phenotype of Lacaune Sheep Is Associated with an Ectopic Expression of the B4GALNT2 Gene within the Ovary
Photomicrographs of ovarian sections from +/+ and L/L ewes and stained either with biotinylated-DBA lectin (500 ng/ml) or KM694 mouse monoclonal antibody (1/1000 dilution). A GalNac treatment (200 µM) was used to compete for DBA staining as specificity control. Sections were counterstained with hematoxylin. A black segment indicates the microscopy magnification scale. GC, granulosa cell layer; TC, theca cell layer; Ant, antral cavity.
