Five-toed chickens: their origin, genetics, geographical spreading and history

  title={Five-toed chickens: their origin, genetics, geographical spreading and history},
  author={Elio Corti and Irina G Moiseyeva and Michael N Romanov},
Корти Э.; Моисеева И.Г.; Романов М.Н. The five-toed chickens have been well known in the history of agriculture and zoology for a long time. Genetically, they represent a mutation of developmental gene(s) that leads to the polydactyly condition observed in five-toed chicken breeds found in China, Japan, England, France, Russia, Turkey, Poland, and Lithuania. We analyzed the ancient and contemporary literature and hypothesize that the polydactyly mutation occurred more than one time and…

Comparative Analysis of Molecular RFLP and SNP Markers in Assessing and Understanding the Genetic Diversity of Various Chicken Breeds

RFLPs were found to be useful markers for retrospective assessment of changes in the genetic architecture and variability underlying the phenotypic variation in chicken populations, especially when samples from previous generations used for MLDF are unavailable for SNP.

PolydactylismIn Muscovy Ducks (Cairina moschata): Inheritance And Types Of Polydactyly

A preliminary investigation on inheritance and types of polydactyly in one hundred and four ducklings produced by seven mating g roups (MGs) of different genotypes showed that irrespective of the genotypes of the parents,polydactyl gene (Po) had inco mplete do minance and penetrance in the ducklings; however, the observed frequencies of polyDactyyly was not significantly significant.



A History of the Domestic Chicken from Antiquity to the 19th Century

Abstract IN CONTEMPLATING our domestic species of today, many interesting questions arise; how much has human manipulation altered the species? how were these changes effected, and with what

Did chickens go north? New evidence for domestication

Using archaeological evidence for chicken domestication from China, Asia and Europe, as well as palaeoclimatic evidence from China, it is concluded that chickens were first domesticated from the red

Monophyletic origin and unique dispersal patterns of domestic fowls.

It is found that a continental population of G. g.

In "History of Animals," Aristotle analyzes differences in parts, activities, modes of life, and character across the animal kingdom, in preparation for establishing their causes, which are the

The Variation of Animals and Plants under Domestication

of the reasons which induce me to believe that all organic beings occasionally cross, though perhaps in some cases only at long intervals of time. (15/14. With respect to plants, an admirable essay

One subspecies of the red junglefowl (Gallus gallus gallus) suffices as the matriarchic ancestor of all domestic breeds.

The noncoding control region of the mitochondrial DNA of various gallinaceous birds was studied with regard to its restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) and sequences of the first 400 bases, suggesting that although the mitochondrion of RFLP type V was the main contributor to domestication, hens of other RFLp types also contributed to this event.

The Problem of Polydactyly in Amphibians

The origin of polydactylous limbs in oldest tetrapods and the digit homology are discussed using new developmental data obtained in the study of recent hynobiids as one of the primitive families of Caudata.

The Phenotypic Modification of Hereditary Polydactylism of Fowl by Selection and by Insulin.

Two separate attempts are made to modify experimentally the expression of this mutation of hereditary polydactylism of I fowl with results relating to the results of matings made in order to test the effect of seledtion on several distinct phenotypes of polydACTylism.

Genetics of the fowl

SummaryPartial suppression of the frizzled plumage of heterozygous Frizzles is induced by a recessive autosomal gene, mf, which is independent of the gene for frizzling.This modifying gene is
