CURI, Rogério Abdallah; MOTA, Lígia Souza Lima Silveira da; AMARANTE, Mônica Regina Vendrame  and  LOPES, Catalina Romeiro. Bovine carcass sexing by PCR method. Braz. J. Vet. Res. Anim. Sci. [online]. 2002, vol.39, n.3, pp.147-148. ISSN 1413-9596.

The objective of the present study was to develop a methodology that would permit sexing bovine meat ready for commercialization. A male-specific primer sequence was used, followed by analysis of the amplified product. The method proved to be efficient for sex verification and is of practical utility in the prevention of fraud in beef sale.
