Fig. 1.

Comparison of the expression of BMPR1B in eight tissues (Tissues 1–8: brain, cerebellum, hypothalamus, pituitary, testis, epididymis, vas deferens, and adrenal gland, respectively) between Small Tail Han sheep (STH) and Sunnite sheep (SNT). Means with different superscripts are significantly different. The significant results with a p-values lower than 0.01 and 0.05 are given two asterisks (**) and one asterisk (*), respectively.

Fig. 2.

Comparison of the expression of BMP15 in eight tissues (Tissues 1–8: brain, cerebellum, hypothalamus, pituitary, testis, epididymis, vas deferens, and adrenal gland, respectively) between STH and SNT. Means with different superscripts are significantly different. The significant results with a p-values lower than 0.01 is given two asterisks (**).

Fig. 3.

Comparison of the expression of GDF9 in eight tissues (Tissues 1–8: brain, cerebellum, hypothalamus, pituitary, testis, epididymis, vas deferens, and adrenal gland, respectively) between STH and SNT. Means with different superscripts are significantly different. The significant results with a p-values lower than 0.01 and 0.05 are given two asterisks (**) and one asterisk (*), respectively.

Fig. 4.

Comparison of the expression of Smad1 in eight tissues (Tissues 1–8: brain, cerebellum, hypothalamus, pituitary, testis, epididymis, vas deferens, and adrenal gland, respectively) between STH and SNT. Means with different superscripts are significantly different. The significant results with a p-values lower than 0.01 and 0.05 are given two asterisks (**) and one asterisk (*), respectively.

Fig. 5.

Comparison of the expression of Smad5 in eight tissues (Tissues 1–8: brain, cerebellum, hypothalamus, pituitary, testis, epididymis, vas deferens, and adrenal gland, respectively) between STH and SNT. Means with different superscripts are significantly different. The significant results with a p-values lower than 0.05 is given one asterisk (*).

Fig. 6.

Comparison of the expression of Smad9 in eight tissues (Tissues 1–8: brain, cerebellum, hypothalamus, pituitary, testis, epididymis, vas deferens, and adrenal gland, respectively) between STH and SNT. Means with different superscripts are significantly different. The significant results with a p-values lower than 0.01 and 0.05 are given two asterisks (**) and one asterisk (*), respectively.
