Polymorphism in intron 4 of chicken growth hormone (cGH) gene was studied in 20 Chinese native chicken populations and broiler or layer populations. A total of eight restriction digestion profiles were identified in intron 4 and confirmed by sequencing. Among 20 populations, there were distinctively different allele numbers and frequencies of intron 4 restriction fragment length polymorphisms (RFLPs) between Chinese native chickens and broilers or layers. Two new alleles, allele D and allele E… CONTINUE READING
