Characteristic and trait of inheritance
A third gene (KRT71) is responsible for curly or non-curly coat in dogs and inherited independently from both other genes concerning the coat length.
The mutation is a dominant one, so in breeds where the coat can be either curly or non-curly, it is possible for a curly dog to carry the non-curly trait.
1-2 weeks after arrival of the sample in the lab
The DNA test is performed out of EDTA blood or buccal swabs. Required swabs can be ordered free of charge. (Buccal swab order-form). If a swab is sent in, possibly the genetic material is not sufficient to run the test. In this case it would be best to send in an EDTA blood sample.
Please send in your sample together with the lab order genetic. Results will be transmitted optionally via post, fax or email. After completion of the test you will receive a separate invoice. Payment can be made via credit card or bank transfer.
Breeding club discounts apply if a copy of the membership card is sent together with the respective samples. Due to administrative reasons the invoiced price can not be altered subsequently.
