B912 Quality Gene LDHA Pigeons

Background

In 2006, Polish researchers identified genetic variation linked to elevated homing performance. Genetic variation was identified in the LDHA gene. In humans, the lactate dehydrogenase (LDHA) gene is involved in the lactic acid metabolism. Therefore, the effect of this gene may be linked to an improved clearance of lactic acid during exercise.

The favourable allele was most prevalent in the top-racing animals. The DNA test enables the process of selection for the LDHA genetic variation.

Throughput

The turn-around-time of a test depends to a large extent on the logistics of sample transportation to the laboratory. After receiving the sample at the test location, you can normally expect the result within 10 working days. A longer delivery time applies to tests carried out by a Partner Lab.

Location of disease or trait

-

Breed dependence

For this test samples from all breeds are accepted.

Sample type

For this DNA test we accept the following materials: Blood EDTA, Blood Heparin, Feather, Tissue. Please contact Dr. Van Haeringen Laboratorium if you wish to submit other material as listed.
