Investigations on the coat pattern of the wild rabbit. A contribution to the mode of action of the agouti factor



Investigations on the coat pattern of the wild rabbit. A contribution to the mode of action of the agouti factor



Z. indukt. Abstamm.- u. VererbLehre. 85: 137-162



The coat pattern of the wild rabbit is characterized by the presence of light-coloured cross-bands on the hairs, the bands becoming broader and lighter in colour from the back to the belly, eventually extending right to the hair tip, causing the belly to appear white. Genetically, the agouti pattern depends on the presence of the gene A in combination with certain pattern-building factors. This gene is responsible for the banding of the hairs.
