Abstract

A single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) from glycine (G) to adenine (A) at position 646 of the open reading frame of chicken PGC-1α gene causing an Asp216Asn amino acid substitution was identified. The frequencies of alleles and genotypes were significantly different among six chicken breeds (P<0.01). The White Plymouth Rock had the highest frequency (0.81) of allele G, while White Leghorn the lowest (0.18). No association was found between the SNP and growth-related traits in 332
