One hundred twenty animals of three native Italian cattle breeds, Piedmontese, Maremmana, and Podolica, were genetically characterized at 21 microsatellite loci located on 13 chromosomes. Allele numbers ranged from 3 to 19; average gene diversity ranged from 0.206 to 0.878 (average 0.738). The breed that preserved the highest genetic variability was the Podolica, where the chosen markers show the highest gene diversity (0.741) and the highest heterozygosity (0.155). The lowest inbreeding rate… CONTINUE READING
