Abstract: The variability in breeding program leads to rapid loss of genetic potential for which National Bureau of Animal Genetic Resources is emphasized to conserve the indigenous breeds. The variation in myostatin (MSTN) gene and its association with growth traits will throw light on its potential use as marker in selection. Hence, the study was conducted to detect polymorphism in exon 3 of MSTN, one of the most important growth regulatory gene and its association with growth in Nilagiri sheep breed. Blood samples were collected from Nilagiri sheep (n = 103) of South India and growth data up to 1 year of age was recorded.
