Özet

A total of 259 cattle of four Turkish native cattle breeds, East Anatolian Red (EAR), South Anatolian Red (SAR), Turkish Grey (TG) and Anatolian Black (AB), Holstein and Brown Swiss (BS) breeds were genotyped for kappa-casein (CSN3), bovine growth hormone (GH1) and prolactin (PRL) polymorphism by the polymerase chain reaction and restriction length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP). The degree of genetic differentiation between populations FST was calculated as 0.053 and was found to be significant (P < 0.001). According to the genetic distance values (Nei), the highest genetic difference was found between SAR and EAR in four Turkish native cattle breeds and this difference was significant.
