Tyrosinase and tyrosinase related protein 1 alleles specify domestic cat coat color
phenotypes of the albino and brown loci.
In horses, SLC45A2 is known as the "cream gene," and mutations can result in a range of lighter horse coat colors
, from the tanner palomino:
For example, if some of the animals used for generating a high alcohol-consuming selected line by chance have a somewhat lighter coat color
than the animals in the original population, the inbreeding inherent in generating the selected line may result in a population with a lighter coat color
, even though coat color
is unrelated to alcohol consumption.
Therefore, the mutations in this gene can affect coat color
in many species of mammals.
These authors demonstrated that maternal dietary genistein supplementation of mice during gestation at levels comparable to humans consuming high soy diets shifted the coat color
of heterozygous viable yellow agouti ([A.
Black wolves received a gene for coat color
from domesticated dogs through interspecies mating, researchers report online February 5 in Science.
A radiant silver powder coat color
option is also now available for all RailingWorks standard railing profiles.
For an upgraded charge, cabinets can also be coated with powder coat color
or clear Protect-A-Coat finish to prevent damage from chlorine or salt water, and harsh weather like rain, severe wind and snow.
Moreover, consumers have preferred black coat color
than white coat color
The researchers assessed offspring coat color
and body weight, traits that can vary with methylation (a mechanism in which methyl groups attach to DNA where cytosine bases occur consecutively).
In an unconventional evolutionary twist, dogs that bred with wolves thousands of years ago ceded a genetic mutation encoding dark coat color
to their former ancestors.
Enormous progress with MC1R gene polymorphisms has been achieved in relation to coat color
variations in vertebrate animals (Robins et al.
