V808 CCKAR_471

Background

This DNA-test for the genetic variation in the gene with the name cholecysokinin type A Receptor (CCKAR) is associated with improved quality of meat. The test detects variation in amino acid 471.

Test specific information

-

Age

The genetic factor is continuously present, and affects the meatquality.

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

Meat quality can be assessed in the meat.

Breed dependence

For this test samples from all breeds are accepted.

Sample type

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

Result

Meat quality is based on many genetic factors. For each factor, a separate test result will be returned.

Inheritance

Various genetic factors influencing meat quality are inherited in a dominant or recessive mode. Meat quality is influenced by a large number of genetic factors.
