An alternative choice was to introduce another crosslink, the isopeptide crosslink, by expressing the transglutaminase enzyme responsible for catalysing the formation of these links between lysine and glutamine side-chains in proteins. The other aspect considered for change was fibre elasticity and the route chosen for investigation was to attempt to convert the cortex to a predominantly orthocortical (‘soft’) type by increasing the level of one of the glycine/tyrosine-rich proteins or by increasing the proportion of KIFs in the cortex by co-expression of Type I and Type II wool KIF transgenes.

Core sampling A core sample is a representative sample taken from a sale lot comprising one or more bales. Initially core samples were taken using a manual hand core device consisting of a long tube, with a slit along the length of the tube and a replaceable cutting tip. Bales must be weighed at the same time that core samples are taken, and these samples are sealed in airtight bags to prevent any change in the moisture content of the sample during the interval between sampling and testing. The statistically based systems for obtaining a representative sample using this device were developed in the United States and refined during the 1960s within Australia and New Zealand.
