  1. The genes whose expression level has been measured are listed with their respective gene name, chromosome (OAR) and starting position (given in bp) and gene ontology function as provided by the NCBI’s website [31]. Expression levels were measured in the abomasal fundic mucosa (AFM)or in the abomasal lymph node (ALN) or both.
