Studies on genetic relationship between red jungle fowl and domestic fowl



Studies on genetic relationship between red jungle fowl and domestic fowl



Acta Genetica Sinica 23(2): 96-104



The analysis of blood-group genes (3 loci, 13 alleles), plasma protein polymorphic loci (5 loci, 11 alleles) and DNA fingerprints of Red Jungle Fowl and Chinese native fowl breeds or foreign fowl breeds showed that the genetic relationship between Red Jungle Fowl and Chahua Chicken was relatively close, while that between Red Jungle Fowl and Taihe Silky, Shouguang Chicken or Barred Plymouth Rock, Rhode Island Red was relatively remote. The evolutional dendrogram was as follow: Red Jungle Fowl-Chahua Chicken-Taihe Silky and Shouguang Chicken or Barred Plymouth Rock and Rhode Island Red. The comparison of present study and published data showed that the Red Jungle Fowl was relatively close to the domestic fowls, while the Green Jungle Fowl (Gallus varius) was found to be related most remotely to the domestic fowls. On the other hand, the cluster analysis showed that the. four Chinese local breeds or species of fowl belonged to the same cluster, and the foreign Jungle Fowls formed another cluster. These results support the theory concerning the independent origin of Chinese native fowl breeds.
