Abstract

Four loci seem responsible for the dilution of the basic coat colours in horse: Dun (D), Silver Dapple (Z), Champagne (CH) and Cream (C). Apart from the current phenotypes ascribed to these loci, pearl has been described as yet another diluted coat colour in this species. To date, this coat colour...

Abstract

Mushroom is a unique coat color phenotype in Shetland Ponies characterized by the dilution of the chestnut coat color to a sepia tone and is hypothesized to be a recessive trait. A genome wide association study (GWAS), utilizing the Affymetrix 670K array (MNEc670k) and a single locus mixed linear...

Abstract

Kiso horse is a breed of Japanese native horses. In this study, to clarify coat color gene variation in Kiso horses, we used SNaPshotTM genotyping to evaluate variation in MC1R, ASIP, and MATP genes at the Extension (E), Agouti (A), and Cream dilution (C) loci. The coat color of 149 horses was...

Abstract

Considering the hidden mode of inheritance of some coat-color-associated alleles, we investigated the presence/absence of coat-color-associated alleles in 1093 domestic horses of 55 breeds and 20 specimens of Przewalski's horse. For coat-color genotyping, allele specific PCR, pyrosequencing and...

Abstract

The Polish Konik is a primitive breed of horse, most likely descended directly from the wild extinct forest equus so-called Tarpan (Equus ferus ferus). The studbook of this breed is closed, and only individuals with blue dun in color with a well-developed black middorsal stripe and other primitive...

Abstract

The colours of the horses have long been a subject of interest to owners and breeders of horses as well as to scientists. Though, the colour of horses has little to do with its performance, it is a primary means of identification and also the first indicator of questionable parentage. Probably the...

Abstract

White coat color in mammals has been selected several times during the domestication process. Numerous dog breeds are fixed for one form of white coat color that involves darkly pigmented skin. The genetic basis of this color, due to the absence of pigment in the hairs, was suggested to correspond...

AbstractFull Text

In this study horse coat colour genetics was tried to be summarized. A way of identification of horse coat colour and marking genetics is basically important to identify a horse as an individual animal. All coat colours are determined by the action of only a couple of genes. Those genes can...

AbstractFull Text

Equine coat color is an important phenotypic trait, predominantly within the context of correct animal identification. Due to the increased import of horses to Poland during the last years, uncommon coat colors seem to occur more often. In this study, we have analyzed the genotypes of cold-blooded ...

Abstract

The MC1R allele "e" in the homozygous state leads to the production of pheomelanin and is responsible for inhibition of expression of the silver dilution gene (PMEL17 "Z" allele). Horse coat colour is one of the traits breeders select for. A total of 133 horses representing Estonian Native (48),...
