    ..In addition, the MBL gene variants were assessed in different chicken populations based on the polymorphisms in the promoter region. We observed 10 previously identified MBL variants with A2/A8 and A4 as the most frequent alleles. ..

    ..In addition, our cladistic analysis using chromosomal characters appears to support the placement of osprey (PHA) in Accipitridae. ..

    ..The purpose of this work was to detect for the first time QTL for disease resistance traits to Eimeria tenella in chicken by performing a genome scan in an F2 cross issued from a resistant Fayoumi line and a susceptible Leghorn line...

The lavender plumage colour in Japanese quail is associated with a complex mutation in the region of MLPH that is related to differences in growth, feed consumption and body temperature. BMC Genomics. 2012;13:442 pubmed publisher
    ..An extensive overlapping chromosome rearrangement was associated with a non-pathological Mendelian trait and minor, non deleterious effects in the lavender Japanese quail which is a natural knockout for PRLH. ..

    ..The large number of alleles shared exclusively between Ha Giang chickens and junglefowl, as well as the results of a Bayesian clustering analysis, suggest that gene flow has been taking place from junglefowl to Ha Giang chickens. ..

    ..This mutation results in the amino acid change R35W, at a site also associated with similar phenotypes in mice, humans and cats. This is the first time that an avian species with a mutation in the MLPH gene has been reported. ..
