Abstract :

The study aimed at identifying the polymorphism of domestic pigeon لA-globin gene which can
be a potential homing marker in selection of racing pigeons. A total of 329 domestic pigeons were
genotyped using the polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCRRFLP) method. The PCR products were digested with 17 restriction endonucleases. One RFLP
– detected with HphI – was found in intron 1 and represented a C/T mutation. The second RFLP
– detected with BseLI – was a point mutation in the 3’UTR region of the gene (C/T mutation). The
polymorphism in the 3’UTR region of the pigeon لA-globin gene can potentially affect the stability
of mRNA and modify the gene expression. The mechanisms of haemoglobin function reflecting
variants of the لA-globin gene remain unknown.
