    An F2 chicken population of 265 individuals, obtained from an intercross between the Japanese Game (colored plumage) and the White Plymouth Rock (the recessive white) and genotyped for microsatellite markers, was used for determining the locus of the gene responsible for the recessive white...

    Dominant white, Dun, and Smoky are alleles at the Dominant white locus, which is one of the major loci affecting plumage color in the domestic chicken. Both Dominant white and Dun inhibit the expression of black eumelanin. Smoky arose in a White Leghorn homozygous for Dominant white and...

    Pleiotropic recessive mutation glass-like (gl-l) found in region 8C10–8E of the X chromosome was shown to cause glass-like eyes having no boundaries between facets and a nonuniform pigment distribution determined by the endogenous white. The gl-l mutation completely inhibited expression...

    Oocyan or blue/green eggshell colour is an autosomal dominant trait found in native chickens (Mapuche fowl) of Chile and in some of their descendants in European and North American modern breeds. We report here the identification of an endogenous avian retroviral (EAV-HP) insertion in oocyan...

    A mutation that confers white plumage with black eyes was identified in the Minohiki breed of Japanese native chicken (Gallus gallus domesticus). The white plumage, with a few partially pigmented feathers, was not associated with the tyrosinase gene, and displayed an autosomal recessive mode of...

    A novel generation of retroviral gene-trap vectors has been developed with the ability to induce conditional mutations in most genes expressed in mouse embryonic stem (ES) cells. The vectors rely on directional site-specific recombination systems, which can repair and re-induce the gene-trap...

    Application of classical genetic, virological, and molecular methods has identified 12 structural loci containing retroviral DNA in the chicken. Mendelian segregation of 8 of these loci controls the expression of retroviral antigens or production of complete virus. These genes apparently were...

P.; Houseman, M.; Taylor, G. R.; Van De Heyning, C. M.; Fransen, E.; Rowland, J.; Cucci, R. A.; Smith, R. J. H.; Van Camp, G. // Journal of Medical Genetics;Aug2001, Vol. 38 Issue 8, p515 

    Fifty to eighty percent of autosomal recessive congenital severe to profound hearing impairment result from mutations in a single gene, GJB2, that encodes the protein connexin 26. One mutation of this gene, the 3SdelG allele, is particularly common in white populations. We report evidence that...

    In total, 246 individuals from 8 Chinese indigenous blue- and brown-shelled chicken populations (Yimeng Blue, Wulong Blue, Lindian Blue, Dongxiang Blue, Lushi Blue, Jingmen Blue, Dongxiang Brown, and Lushi Brown) were genotyped for 21 SNP markers from the SLCO1B3 gene to evaluate phylogenetic...
