A Polymerase Chain Reaction – Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) test was performed to investigate the allele frequencies of the diacylglycerol oacyltransferase 1 gene (DGAT 1) in Indian Holstein Friesian (HF) bulls. Recent studies indicated that the DGAT 1 gene is responsible for fat production and found on centromeric region of bovine chromosome 14. Because of polymorphism, the DGAT 1 gene has two major genetic variants (K and A) which occurred due to an amino acid… CONTINUE READING
