EG-locus

EG-locus (domino, grizzle)

Characteristic and trait of inheritance

The EG allele encodes a coat colour variant called “domino” in Afghan hounds and “grizzle” in Salukis. This pattern is characterized by a pale face with a widow’s peak above the eyes and appears to be unique to these two old dog breeds. EG is dominant over E and e alleles but recessive to the EM allele. Only dogs possesing at/at genotype at the A locus and ky/ky at the K locus exhibit this phenotype.

Breed

Afghan hound and Saluki

Test duration

1-2 weeks after arrival of the sample in the lab

Material

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.

Testing procedure

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.
