New data on coat color gene frequencies in cats: 1. The Armavir population

New data on coat color gene frequencies in cats: 1. The Armavir population The population of domestic cats from the city of Armavir has been examined. A high frequency of gene O was revealed in the population. Differences among three subpopulations estimated using two genetic distances showed heterogeneity of the Armavir cat population. The extreme samples showed highly significant differences (P < 0.01; χ [6] 2 = 24.67), likely explained by the structural features of the synantropous population and human-driven frequency-dependent selection operating in it.

The frequencies of genes Orange and Long-hair have increased in the general population. The frequency of gene dilution has decreased. These changes may have occurred because of genetic exchange with purebred domestic cats that have become more popular as pets in the recent years. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Genetics Springer Journals

Abstract

The population of domestic cats from the city of Armavir has been examined. A high frequency of gene O was revealed in the population. Differences among three subpopulations estimated using two genetic distances showed heterogeneity of the Armavir cat population. The extreme samples showed highly significant differences (P < 0.01; χ [6] 2 = 24.67), likely explained by the structural features of the synantropous population and human-driven frequency-dependent selection operating in it. The feline population of Armavir underwent significant changes during the past two decades. The d ij coefficient in it was 0.093; D p = 0.05. The frequencies of genes Orange and Long-hair have increased in the general population. The frequency of gene dilution has decreased. These changes may have occurred because of genetic exchange with purebred domestic cats that have become more popular as pets in the recent years.
