In Bangladesh, gayal is the only wild relative of domestic zebu cattle found in the Chittagong hill tract regions, predominantly in Bandarban district together with other wild animal species like jungle fowl, wild pig, and wild quail.
1980) analyzed the karyotypes of three Bos species where they observed the number, form, and configuration of gayal chromosomes were different from yellow cattle (Bos taurus) and gaur (Bos gaurus) and their numbers of chromosomes were 58, 60, and 56, respectively.
2010) analyzed mtDNA control region sequences of 71 samples and SRY gene sequences of 39 samples, together with the available sequences in GenBank which showed that Yunnan gayal originated from the hybridization between male Bos frontalis and female Bos taurus or Bos indicus, and that Yunnan cattle mostly originated from B.
Unlike domestic cattle the large semi-domesticated gayal has a bony dorsal ridge on the shoulder and white stocking on all four legs.
It was reported that the reproductive profile of gayal is very close to the domestic zebu cattle of Bangladesh (Giasuddin et al.
Study on the growth pattern of gayals (Bos frontalis) and their crossbred calves.
Applying simple random sampling in typical colony methods in the central area of habitat (in Nu River City of Yunnan Province), 11 gayals were selected.
Cyt b gene entire sequences (1,140 bp) of 11 gayals were edited and aligned with reference to the Cyt b sequence of the domestic cow (Bos taurus) (Accession No.
Nucleotide composition of Cyt b entire sequences of gayals
After being sequenced and aligned, a 1,140 bp fragment including the entire mitochondrial Cyt b gene was obtained in all 11 gayals.
