Abstract

COTHRAN, E. Gus et al. Genetics of the Pantaneiro horse of the Pantanal region of Brazil. Genet. Mol. Biol. [online]. 1998, vol.21, n.3 ISSN 1415-4757.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1415-47571998000300009.

Genetic variation at seven red blood cell alloantigen, blood group loci and 10 biochemical genetic loci was examined in 102 Pantaneiro horses from the Pantanal region of Brazil and compared to that of other domestic horse breeds. Measures of both individual genic variation and populational genetic diversity within the Pantaneiro were near the average for domestic horse breeds. From the standpoint of genetic conservation there is no immediate concern for loss of variation within the Pantaneiro. Analysis of genetic relationship showed that the Pantaneiro was clearly of Iberian Peninsula descent and that it was most closely related to other Brazilian breeds.
