MeSH headings : Animal Nutritional Physiological Phenomena; Animals; Animals, Genetically Modified; Chickens / genetics; Galactose / metabolism; Gene Expression; Glucose / metabolism; Hydrolysis; Intestinal Mucosa / enzymology; Intestines / enzymology; Lactase / metabolism; Lactose / metabolism; beta-Galactosidase / genetics; beta-Galactosidase / metabolism
TL;DR: Overall, it appears that inserting the lacZ gene, which encodes beta-galactosidase, has resulted in a chicken that can utilize lactose as an energy source. (via Semantic Scholar)
