The type and frequency of goat milk protein alleles have not yet been studied in Hungary. Here we report the initial, partial characterization of allelic polymorphisms of αs1-, к-casein and β-lactoglobulin genes in a herd of Hungarian Milk Goat based on published RFLP-PCR and AS-PCR methods. Experiments are in progress to confirm and extend the caprine milk protein genotype data and to evaluate its influence on milk quality.
