  1. Annotated genes comprised within the 55.1 and 57.1 Mbp interval of OAR12 are provided. Their related gene ontology function has been retrieved from the NCBI’s website [31]. Position is given in bp and corresponds to the starting position as indicated on the ovine sheep genome website [30]. PAPP-A2*: as this gene was the only one within the QTL region with an obvious role in immunity, only this gene was examined in gene expression analysis.
