Abstract
The aim is to understand the structure and composition characteristics of adipose tissue in different fat-tailed sheep, to lay a foundation for the study on the induced deposition of adipose tissue. The number of 6 for each eight-month-old Lanzhou big-tailed sheep, small-tailed Han sheep and Tibetan sheep wether have been selected for the slaughter experiment. Then, the subcutaneous, greater omental, perirenal and caudal fats have been collected for cell morphology studies, while the fat of Lanzhou big-tailed sheep and Tibetan sheep have selected to study composition and content of fatty acid. By comparison: for fat-tailed sheep, the fat is enriched in tail, subcutaneous tissue, and omentum, whereas for less fat-tailed sheep, the fat is enriched in viscera and subcutaneous tissue. The subcutaneous fat of fat-tailed sheep had early maturation, high degree of differentiation, and long growth phase of fat tail. For the less fat-tailed sheep, the subcutaneous fat and perirenal fat type have similar characteristics of differentiation and development, while the tail fat has early maturation. For Lanzhou big-tailed sheep and Tibetan sheep, their major fatty acids have similar characteristics of site distribution.
