Abstract

AluI restriction digestion exhibited three AA, AB and BB of partial exon 3 region of TLR4 gene in Sahiwal cattle. It was found that Sahiwal cattle with BB genotype were susceptible (60.00 %) to mastitis. Association between all the genotypes combinations of partial exon 3 region of TLR4 gene was found to be non-significant with mastitis, except between AA and AB genotype.

Keywords
