Analysis of agouti signaling protein (ASIP) gene polymorphisms and association with coat color
in Tibetan sheep (Ovis aries).
Although it has been reported that seasonal variations of coat color
in a small South American rodent species are not influenced by the age of the individual (Camargo et al.
The results suggested that the coat color
is not a characteristic capable alone to impose changes in maintaining heat balance of Santa Ines sheep enough to influence the growth performance of animals.
Furthermore, seed coat color
is an important indicator of maturity and differences in seed color within a cultivar are associated with harvesting seeds at different developmental stage (Elias and Copeland, 2001; Atis et al.
In horses, SLC45A2 is known as the "cream gene," and mutations can result in a range of lighter horse coat colors
, from the tanner palomino:
The first step in each finish is to paint the wall with the base coat color
For most alleles of horse coat colors
, one cannot tell by looking at an animal whether it is homozygous at each coat color
gene, so zygosity information is not critical for purposes of identification.
are partial albinos, and the full coat color
is expressed only on cooler body surfaces.
Single plants were selected for uniformity, flowering time, seed coat color
, and seed size in 1994 from field plots.
Thus, as Searle (1968) indicates, the genetics of coat color
and pattern formation in mammals is concerned with hereditary factors affecting the number, shape, arrangement and position of melanin pigment granules.
The genetic determinants of coat color
in farm animals, including sheep, are critical for breed recognition and fiber production.
The genetic condition follicular dysplasia can cause hair loss and change of coat color
in affected breeds, including Siberian Huskies.
Descriptive statistics for body dimensions were analyzed using the ANOVA and Student's T-Test that also determined the impact of sex, region, body coat color
and age group on the response variables of WH, HR, BL, HGC, CD, CC and HL (Anonymous, 2011b).
The researchers assessed offspring coat color
and body weight, traits that can vary with methylation (a mechanism in which methyl groups attach to DNA where cytosine bases occur consecutively).
Seed color at ripening is light green, and seed coat color
at maturity is light yellow.
