Mitochondrial DNA study of Mongolian horses
Keywords:Tes horses, D-loops, control panels, horse haplotype,
AbstractStudies of population genetic diversity is important research field in conservation and restoration of animal breeds and genetic resources. The control region of mitochondrial DNA is widely used for population and evolutionary studies because of its‘ maternal inheritance and high level of sequence variation as well as its‘ much less recombination rate. To determine genetic diversity and maternal inheritance, we collected 10 blood samples of Tes horses from Zavkhan, Mongolia. In this study, 8 haplotypes and 44 polymorphic sites were detected. Haplotype diversity was 0.9333 and nucleotide diversity was 0.0224. 4 haplogroups (A, C, F, I) were identified among 8 haplotypes.
