Single strand conformation polymorphism in intron I of the chicken apoVLDL-II gene, and its relationship with triglyceride and very low density lipoprotein concentrations
Genetically fat and lean chickens reared identically in the same environment were used to investigate the effect of the apoVLDL-II gene (intron I) on total cholesterol, triglyceride, and lipoprotein concentrations. The overall allele frequency in the 2 populations was 0.59 for allele A and 0.41 for allele B. The allele frequency in the Rugao breed was 0.52 for allele A and 0.48 for allele B; however, in the Anka breed it was 0.65 for allele A and 0.35 for allele B. The apoVLDL-II genotype in the genetically fat Anka breed was associated with a significant increase in serum triacylglyceride concentration in sexually immature birds.
