Abstract
Milk protein polymorphisms were genotyped by polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (PAGE) from 109 Maiwa and 100 Jiulong yaks. The relationships between milk protein polymorphisms and 3 milking traits were studied. The results showed that ??CN竊뚳겓-CN and ??La were monomorphic, and ??s1-CN and ??Lg were polymorphic, with ??s1-CN D and ??Lg E as dominant genes, respectively. The frequencies of ??s1-CN D were 0.8073 and 0.6000 in two populations and ??Lg E were 0.9770 and 0.9700. The mean heterozygosities were 0.1021 and 0.1867 in the two populations. No significant effects on milking traits and milk protein compositions were observed except for ??s1-CN locus on fat percentage in Jiulong yak.
