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


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)
