Novel splice variants of the bovine PCK1 gene

Z. B. Zhang, Zhang, W., Li, R. L., Li, J. B., Zhong, J. F., Zhao, Z. S., and Huang, J. M., Novel splice variants of the bovine PCK1 gene, vol. 12, pp. 4028-4035, 2013.

Phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase 1 (PCK1), also named PEPCK-C, is a multiple-function gene that is involved in gluconeogenesis, glyceroneogenesis, reproduction, female fertility, and development of obesity and diabetes. How its many functions are regulated was largely unknown. Therefore, we investigated mRNA expression and possible splice variants of PCK1 by screening cDNA in nine tissues from Holstein bulls and cows.
