Short summary
Keratin-associated proteins (KAPs) are a structural component of cashmere fibre, and variation in some KAP genes (KRTAPs) has been associated with a number of caprine fibre traits. In this study, we identified the caprine KAP15-1 gene on goat chromosome 1. Six variants containing eight SNPs were found. Association analyses revealed that variation in the gene affected mean fibre diameter.
