In the present study, the polymorphism of growth hormone (GH) gene was analyzed as a genetic marker candidate for growth traits in Boer goat bucks. Two single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) - A781G (Ser/Gly35) and A1575G (Leu147), were identified by GH gene sequencing and PCR-RFLP (polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism) analysis. AA genotype resulted in a significant decrease in birth chest girth (P=0.03) and weaning weight (P=0.014) comparing to AB genotype, while… CONTINUE READING
