Abstract

A study was conducted in hundreds of goats living in Sardinia by means of isoelectric focusing (IEF) of Hb tetramers and electrophoresis of dissociated globin chains. This screening showed that Sardinian breeds are also characterized by a notably high Hb polymorphism. Here, we report the results of this screening and our findings on nucleotide sequence analysis of the four most common allelic β-globin genes, all characterized by distinct electrophoretic patterns. These are the βA, βD, βD-Malta, and βE genes. It is expected that with the methodologies described here the various α and β chain variants present in goat can be completely characterized.
