The coding sequence of the ASIP gene is identical in nine wild-type coloured cattle breeds.

Abstract

The aim of this study was to ascertain the role of the Agouti signaling peptide (ASIP) gene coding region in the Agouti locus variation within wild-type coat colour in cattle. We determined the Extension genotype in 241 individuals from six Spanish and three French brown cattle breeds representative of wild-type coat variation. Polymerase chain reaction… (More)
