Association of cattle growth hormone gene polymorphism with milk productivity

Association of cattle growth hormone gene polymorphism with milk productivity Polymorphisms in two growth hormone (GH) gene regions, intron 3 (MspI-polymorphism) and exon 4 (AluI polymorphism), and their association with milk productivity in Black Pied, Bestuzhevskaya, and Simmental cattle breeds have been studied. It was shown that allele GH V at the AluI polymorphic site and allele GH D at the MSPI polymorphic site of the GH gene, particularly in homozygous state, were more favorable in terms of agricultural importance than the GH L and GH C alleles. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Genetics Springer Journals

Abstract

Polymorphisms in two growth hormone (GH) gene regions, intron 3 (MspI-polymorphism) and exon 4 (AluI polymorphism), and their association with milk productivity in Black Pied, Bestuzhevskaya, and Simmental cattle breeds have been studied. It was shown that allele GH V at the AluI polymorphic site and allele GH D at the MSPI polymorphic site of the GH gene, particularly in homozygous state, were more favorable in terms of agricultural importance than the GH L and GH C alleles.
