An innermost layer in each cell is the endocuticle. The proteins of the cuticle have been only partially characterised in the exocuticle that has two proteins identified as KAP-type proteins and related to the sulphur-rich KAPs of the matrix in the fibre cortex. Proteins of the endocuticle have not been identified but are usually regarded as cytoplasmic proteins that remain after cell differentiation. The exocuticle KAP proteins are crosslinked by disulphide bonds and produce a stiff protective covering © 2009 Woodhead Publishing Limited Improvement of wool production through genetic manipulation 13 for the fibre.

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. These manipulations were shown by in situ hybridisation to achieve the expected expression of the proteins in the wool cortex. Furthermore, the presence of the expressed proteins could be visualised by electron microscopy except in the case of co-expression of the Type I and Type II genes.
