Genetic polymorphisms of the leptin gene in Orabi sheep

Abstract

The current study was conducted on three groups of Araby sheep, including 54 in the animal field of the College of Agriculture / University of Basra in the Karmat Ali site, 40 from the Basra slaughterhouse and 15 lambs from Maysan Governorate, (average age of 5 months and weight 20±3.4 kg). To detect the genetic morphology of the leptin gene by polymerase chain reaction technique - single strand formation corresponding to the DNA, a genetic morphology of the leptin gene was found in the Orabi sheep and the appearance of two genotypes, AA and AB.
