Short summary
In this study, two novel indels within the sheep SIRT7 gene, 5′ promoter region-insertion-7 bp and 3′ UTR-insertion-17 bp, were identified in 709 individuals from five different Chinese and Mongolian sheep breeds. Genetic diversity within the SIRT7 gene and its effect on body size traits were explored. The findings from this research will potentially provide useful DNA markers for the improvement of economic traits in sheep genetic breeding.
