Identification of polymorphisms: Genomic sequences containing the caprine NOD1
and NLRP9 genes were used to detect SNP in these genes, and primers were designed using the NCBI Primer-BLAST web Program (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/tools/primer-blast/) from the CDS of the NOD1
and NLRP9 genes (NCBI, Gen Bank association number: NW_017189490 and NW_017189504 respectively).
The cytosolic sensors Nod1
and Nod2 are critical for bacterial recognition and host defense after exposure to Toll like receptor ligands.
We then screened CBT targeted pathway by quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) array and enrichment analysis, which was further confirmed using NOD1
selective inhibitor ML130.

is structurally similar to other NLR proteins in that it is composed of an N-terminal caspase activation and recruitment domain (CARD), a central NOD and a C-terminal leucine-rich repeat domain (LRR).
In addition, the expression of NOD1
was suppressed in both C57BL/6J mice fed the WD and db/db mice (Figures 5(c) and 5(d)).
