Polymorphism of the GnRHR gene and its association with litter size in Boer goats (Short communication)

  • 2011
  • Issue: 4
  • Volume: 41
Wucai Yang, Keqiong Tang, Chunyan Zhang, Deqing Xu, Qunying Wen & Liguo Yang Page: 398 - 402

The polymorphism in the gonadotropin-releasing hormone receptor (GnRHR) gene was detected by PCR single-strand conformational (PCR-SSCP) and DNA sequencing methods in 224 Boer goats. Two single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), G891T and G757A, were found in the exon I of the…
