Glutathione polymorphism study was conducted in three different populations of Malabari
goat, the native goat breed of Kerala. The animals were classified as low and high glutathione
types based on the values obtained for blood glutathione concentration. In the pooled population,
majority of the animals belonged to low GSH type (53.68 per cent).
