PCR-RFLP Analysis of Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) C-2402T at the Promoter Region of Prolactin Gene and its Association with Positively Correlated Production Traits in White Leghorn Chicken
First Online 24-09-2021|
Methods: A total of 200 birds of White Leghorn were selected from All India Co-ordinated Research Project on Poultry improvement (AICRP) farm, Mannuthy. Genomic DNA was isolated from venous blood. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) followed by restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) analysis was done to identify the SNP C-2402T of prolactin gene.
Result: All the birds were observed with the same genotype CC and the frequency of the C allele was one.
