Abstract: Blood samples collected from rabbits maintained in the rabbit breeding farm of Kerala Agricultural University formed the materials for this study These blood samples were typed employing horizontal polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis to study the polymorphism of transferrin post transferrin and haemoglobin A total of 152 rabbits comprising of 50 Soviet Chinchilla 52 Newzealand White and 50 local rabbits were involved m the study Genetic inter relationship among growth traits and survivability were studied In all the genetic groups two transferrin variants the faster Tf and slower Tf with two phenotypes TfAA and TfAC were observed The gene frequency of Tf and Tf were 0 7500 and 0 2500 in Soviet Chinchilla 0 8300 and 0 1700 m Newzealand White and 0 8100 and 0 1900 m local rabbits The frequency of TfA allele was higher in all the populations The phenotype TfCC was not observed in any of the genetic groups Three post transferrin phenotypes Ptf FF Ptf FS and Ptf SS were detected and found to be controlled by two F S co dominant alleles Ptf and Ptf The fast moving F variant was designated as Ptf and the slow moving migrant S F was designated as Ptf The gene frequency of Ptf was 0 7400 0 8500 and 0 7600 m the three genetic groups and e that of Ptf was 0 2600 0 1500 and 0 2400 in Soviet Chinchilla Newzealand White and local rabbits respectively Haemoglobin was found to be monomorphic in all the three genetic groups studied The allelic frequencies of transferrin and post transferrin were suggestive of Hardy Weinberg equilibrium in the populations of three breeds No significant diversity was found to exist between genetic groups analysis of segretation pattern observed in pedigrees revealed the autosomal codominant mode of inheritance for transferrin and post transferrin alleles The absence of TfCC phenotype in the whole population of rabbits may be due to its unfavourable influence on the viability
