Detection of Alleles in Chicken Strains and Hybrids
The principle aim of studies of blood groups in the chicken is to detect the genes controlling such systems and to use these genes as genetic markers. Development in this field of research and collaboration between laboratories is limited as a result of difficulty in production of specific reagents for animals belonging to different strains of chicken. In an attempt to avoid this problem the authors have set up reagent-antigen specificity tables for the blood group systems A, E and B. In this report results will be presented indicating the usefulness of such reagent-antigen specificity tables for chicken blood typing and as an aid to international collaboration in the field.
