ABSTRACT

Restriction fragment length polymorphic markers in the chicken growth hormone (GH) gene were tested for their association with egg production traits. Alleles of GH were determined in 3 non-inbred strains from different genetic bases. The frequency of PS1 (+) allele in the three strains was very low in contrast to the layer strain previously reported. Results of the present study indicate that the frequency of PS (+) is related to egg production and that the PS1 (+) allele may be used as a genetic marker for selection in egg production.
