Abstract:

Estrogen hormone is an important hormone found to be linked with reproductive traits and affect the growth, differentiation and function of reproductive tissues. Estrogen receptor gene (ERα) is considered as candidate marker for fertility traits in farm animals. The present study was undertaken with 203 buffaloes from different locations. The Polymerase Chain Reaction-Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) of ER-α gene revealed monomorphic pattern at 171 and 77 bp and genotyped as GG for all the tested animals, which indicates the fixation of allele. As a conclusion, monomorphic pattern of Estrogen Receptor-α (ERα) gene is considered a unique feature that may be related to the characteristic of buffaloes.
