nstd110 - Wiedemar 2015 "Domestic sheep breeds show a broad spectrum of different horn phenotypes. In most modern production breeds sheep are polled (absence of horns), while horns mainly occur in indigenous breeds. Previous studies mapped the responsible locus on ovine chromosome 10. Sequence analysis identified an 1833 bp genomic deletion located in the 3’-UTR region of the RXFP2 gene present in horned animals only. The sequenced sheep of the reference assembly was hornless (polled)."
