  • The Relationship of the Genotype Effect to FGFBP1 Gene in Some Productive Traits in Broiler Type Ross 308
  • Total 150 birds of the Ross 308 type were raised in the fields of the Faculty of Agriculture/Anbar University.
    The breeding period lasted for 42 days. At the end of the breeding period, 60 birds were randomly selected.
    The blood samples of the birds were individually taken through the jugular vein. The genetic analysis was
    carried out in the laboratories of the Faculty of Biotechnology/University of Nahrain. The aim was to separate
    the genetic material and thus determine the genotype of the FGFBP1 gene. The study examined the diagnosis
    of genetic markers that are related to important characteristics of the carcass and the relationship between 
    the study genes, the weights of the living birds, the measurements of the birds before the slaughter, and the 
    characteristics of the carcass (carcass weight, net weight of the carcass and the percentage of carcasses,
    Abdominal fat in the carcass and internal weights of the intestines that include liver, heart and legumes) for
    the Ross 308 meat breeds are under study, thus identifying the frequency of the genotypes and replicating
    the gene to obtain the best possibility to improve the economic characteristics of the chicken. The FGFBP1
    gene was identified in the current study birds based on the packages that resulted from the DNA transfer of
    the individuals after the electrical transfer was carried out using the PCR-RFLP technique and the restriction
    enzyme Pst 1. The gene fragments (AA, AB, BB) were identified for FGFBP1 gene and were replicates of
    the genotypes (30.00, 48.33, 21.67) respectively. The replication of gene A 0.54 and gene B 0.46 exceeded
    the genetic makeup of the gene FGFBP1 The rest of the genotypes in the vivo characteristics of the first
    week and the rate of increase in weight For weekly in the first week and the amount of feed consumed in the
    week, second, third and feed conversion efficiency in the first week, the fourth week and the length of the
    chest, chest width and depth of the chest in the first week of the period of education and carcass weight and
    net carcass and the weight of the liver, heart and gizzard exceed significantly (0.05> P). FGFBP1 mutations
    were identified after sequencing of mutations of 65% for each and 35% for the Ross 308 meat samples.
