This paper investigates the structure of androgen receptor gene (AR) in the Russian breed of Dzhalginsky Merino sheep. Polymorphisms of the gene were detected using NimbleGen sequencing technology (Roche, United States). Eight single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and two insertions were detected. Five of these SNPs (c.335T>G, c.339G>A, c.342T>C, c.2491-327T>A, and c.2491-325A>T) and both insertions were identified for the first time. Three SNPs and the insertions are located in the coding part of exon. Insertion c.336_337 is found in most of the animals of this breed and can be used as a genomic marker of the breed. Animals with mutant variant of SNP c.1496+15T>C have significantly lower live weight and body size compared with the wild type genotype. This SNP can be used as a genetic marker of meat production in marker-assisted selection. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Genetics Springer Journals

Abstract

This paper investigates the structure of androgen receptor gene (AR) in the Russian breed of Dzhalginsky Merino sheep. Polymorphisms of the gene were detected using NimbleGen sequencing technology (Roche, United States). Eight single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and two insertions were detected. Five of these SNPs (c.335T>G, c.339G>A, c.342T>C, c.2491-327T>A, and c.2491-325A>T) and both insertions were identified for the first time. Three SNPs and the insertions are located in the coding part of exon. Insertion c.336_337 is found in most of the animals of this breed and can be used as a genomic marker of the breed. Animals with mutant variant of SNP c.1496+15T>C have significantly lower live weight and body size compared with the wild type genotype. This SNP can be used as a genetic marker of meat production in marker-assisted selection.
