Abstract

The aim of the work is to analyze the distribution of allelic variants of genes associated with the signs of milk productivity of animals, in particular, Kappa–casein loci and to establish on its basis genetic structure of the population of producers of the Lebedinian breed by the Kappa-casein gene.

Material and methods of research. The material for the research was the sperm of bulls of the Lebedinian breed cattle (n = 12 heads), evaluated by the quality of offspring. Determination of Kappa-casein gene polymorphism was carried out by PLR-PDFR method in the laboratory of Institute of Animal Husbandry of NAAS. Statistical data processing was carried out on a PC according to the generally accepted methodology using MS Excel software.

Research result. The genetic study of the sperm production of 12 bulls of the Lebedinian breed by the gene Kappa-casein (CSN3) was aimed at studying the genetic characteristics of each of the bull and taking into account the possibilities of using their sperm production in custom-made sails.

The analysis of the genealogical structure showed that 12 bulls were referred to 8 lines. Of the 12 pedigrees, 5 purebred Lebedinian bulls and 7 crosses with Swiss breed bulls. Among the studied bulls by the CSN3 gene, two bulls of the desired homozygous genotype BB were identified – Final 1008, Zaychyk 17000; 6 bulls were homozygous for the AA genotype, 4 bulls were heterozygous.

The frequency of the desired BB genotype among the studied animals was 0.17, and the frequency of carriers of the AA genotype was 0.50. The frequency of carriers of heterozygous genotype AB was 0.33. The frequency of carriers of allele A in the studied animals is 0.66, which is almost twice the frequency of allele B – 0.34.

The frequency of allele B in Kappa-casein in herds for the preservation of the Lebedinian breed can be increased by using bulls who have a B-allelic variant of Kappa-casein in their genome.

Summary. The bulls of the Lebedinian breed recorded a sufficiently high frequency of allele variant in the Kappa-casein locus, which allows for further selection of cattle aimed at increasing the suitability for cheese production of milk. The presence of identified bulls with desirable genotypes of BB and AB Kappa-casein makes it possible to create herds that produce milk with higher technological properties in the production of cheese.
