PCR-CTPP: a rapid and reliable genotyping technique based on ZFX/ZFY alleles for sex identification of tiger (Panthera tigris) and four other endangered felids


An inexpensive, time-saving and reliable method, polymerase chain reaction with confronting two-pair primers (PCR-CTPP), was developed for sex identification in tiger (Panthera tigris) based on zinc finger alleles (ZFX/ZFY). A site of “C/G” transversion representing fixed differences that discriminated between ZFX and ZFY exons among felids was identified… (More)
