Pit-1 gene polymorphism in bovines and its association with performance traits: A review

Author(s):
Sandeep Kumar Sangwan, Surander Singh Dhaka, Ankit Magotra and Vikram Jakhar
Abstract:
This paper aims to review the association of Pit-1 gene Polymorphism with performance traits in bovines. Many genes control quantitative economic traits like Milk production traits, each gene contributing a small effect. Recent molecular genetics leads to the identifications of the candidate genes, those having significant effects on the associated performance traits of economic importance. Being considered necessary for mammary gland development and milk yield Pit-1 gene is used as a candidate for milk production. Pit-l gene Polymorphism and their association with performance traits in bovines could be helpful in easy animal selection and making future breeding strategies through marker-assisted selection (MAS).
