Abstract
Goat milk is widely recognized for its nutritional value. Fatty acid synthase (FAS) is the crucial enzyme of fatty acid de novo synthesis. It plays an important role in the formation of goat milk fat. In this paper, we first introduced the molecular regulation process of goat milk fat metabolism based on the structure research of FAS. Secondly, we reviewed some key factors in FAS transcription and post-transcriptional regulation of the goat mammary gland and preliminarily constructed the expression network of the goat mammary gland FAS gene. The purpose of this paper is to systematically introduce the role of FAS in goat milk fat metabolism and to provide a reference for future studies on the mechanism of goat milk fat metabolism.
