Abstract

Body weight, abdominal fat weight and serum biochemical levels were determined from lean and fat chicken breeds at 12 weeks of age. Single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) in apoVLDL-II and lipoprotein lipase genes was screened by PCR-SSCP and detected by direct sequencing. Lipoprotein lipase gene frequency was found to be significantly different (P < 0.01) in lean chicken whereas it was non-significantly different in fat chicken. SNP in apoVLDL-II and lipoprotein lipase genes significantly (P< 0.05) affected body weight and fat weight. Similarly their interaction significantly (P < 0.05) affected body weight and fat weight. However, no significant difference was observed in the percentage of abdominal fat. SNP in apoVLDL-II and lipoprotein lipase genes significantly (P < 0.05) affected total cholesterol and high density lipoprotein. More likely, the interaction of apoVLDL-II and lipoprotein lipase significantly affect total cholesterol, triglyceride, high density lipoprotein, very low density lipoprotein and low density lipoprotein.
