Short summary
The cashmere produced by Liaoning cashmere goats has high value. However, cashmere production cannot achieve satisfactory results due to long-standing technical bottlenecks. This article takes Liaoning cashmere goats as the research object to explore the function of melatonin. An in-depth analysis of the key molecules and mechanisms mediated by melatonin will help us better understand its regulatory role in animal production and provide theoretical support for improving production efficiency.
