Abstract:

The present study was undertaken for genetic characterization of native chicken population of North Gujarat by using 25 microsatellite markers done into seven multiplexed set. A total of 240 alleles were found where observed number of alleles per locus varied from 6 (ADL 172, MCW 43) to 15 (ADL 136). The mean observed numbers of alleles were found to be 9.60. The overall means for observed and expected heterozygosities were 0.531 and 0.771 respectively, with the ranges of 0.067 (ADL 172) to 0.800 (ADL 23) and 0.518 (ADL 158) to 0.892 (ADL 136), respectively. The Fixation index (FIS) value for all 25 microsatellite loci ranged from 0.075 (MCW 59) to 0.683 (MCW 73) with mean of 0.309. Polymorphic Information Content (PIC) value was ranging from 0.494 (ADL 158) to 0.883 (ADL 136) with a mean of 0.747. The high number of observed alleles and high heterozygosity indicated presence of high genetic variability in native chicken and selected microsatellites were highly polymorphic and proved very useful for breed characterization.
