BACKGROUND The melanocortin 1 receptor (MC1R) gene plays an important role in the control of coat colour in mammals. Genetic variation of the MC1R gene and the relationship between genotype and coat colour are not well understood. Studies in the fox may improve our understanding of gene influence on coat colour in dogs and cats. HYPOTHESIS/OBJECTIVES To investigate coat colour associated mutations in the coding region of MC1R gene in foxes. ANIMALS A total of 118 foxes, comprising 70 red… Expand
