The main aim of this study is to determine genetic diversity of milk protein genes associated with milk traits, namely beta-casein, kappa-casein and betalactoglobulin, in native Turkish cattle breeds (Turkish Grey, Eastern Anatolian Red, Anatolian Black, and Southern Anatolian Red) and Turkish Holstein. Only 11% deviation from the Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium and insignificant Fis values for the populations were observed, indicating that samples are free of inbreeding. B alleles of these genes, which are positively related with cheese yield and quality, seem to be relatively high in native Turkish breeds. Therefore, the results suggest that milk of Turkish native breeds is advantageous for producing high-quality and -yield cheese. A1 allele of beta-casein, which releases a bioactive peptide called BCM-7 after successive gastrointestinal proteolytic digestions, has been claimed to have adverse health effects on humans. Another aim of this study is to develop a protocol and assess the potential detrimental effects of BCM-7 on human peripheral blood cells. Despite the fact that the results are inconclusive, the optimized experimental protocol will guide further researchers while judging the effect of BCM-7 on human health. Even though A1 beta-casein, which has a low frequency in native Turkish breeds, and hence BCM-7 have no adverse health effects on humans, this probability should be enough to keep its frequency low in native cattle breeds. Bulls must be screened for A1 allele of beta-casein as well as E allele of kappa-casein, which is absent in native breeds and known to have detrimental effects on cheese quality.

Kepenek, Eda Şeyma; Togan, İnci Zehra; Department of Biology (2007)
In the present study samples from four native Turkish Cattle Breeds; South Anatolian Red (n= 48), East Anatolian Red (n= 34), Anatolian Black (n= 42) and Turkish Grey (n=46) and elite bulls of Holstein (n=21) were genotyped with respect to two milk production enhancer genes, Prolactin (PRL) and Diacylglycerol acyltransferase (DGAT1), and one disease (Complex Vertebral Malformation) causing gene (SLC35A3). A allele frequency for PRL gene, believed to be positively associated with the milk yield in cattle, ra...
Genetic diversity of gazelles (gazella marica and gazella gazella) in Southeast Turkey: with a special emphasis on ongoing conservation studies of gazella marica in Turkey
Saatoğlu, Dilan; Togan, İnci Zehra; Department of Biology (2015)
The present study was conducted to confirm the recently suggested taxonomic status of gazelles in Turkey and also to investigate genetic diversity that exists between and within populations of Gazella marica (One from Kızılkuyu State Farm, Şanlıurfa, n=48; one from Erikçe State Farm, Gaziantep, n=25) and Gazella gazella (population from Kırıkhan County, Hatay, n=4). In the frame of the study, partial mtDNA cyt-b sequence (amplified by the primers: L14724, H15149), 17 microsatellite loci (RT1, ETH10, OARFCB3...
Bioinformatic analyses in microsatellite-based genetic diversity of Turkish sheep breeds
Acar, Hande; Togan, İnci Zehra; Department of Bioinformatics (2010)
In the present study, within and among breed genetic diversity in thirteen Turkish sheep breeds (Sakız, Karagül, Hemşin, Çine Çaparı, Norduz, Herik, Akkaraman, Dağlıç, Gökçeada, İvesi, Karayaka, Kıvırcık and Morkaraman; in total represented by 628 individuals) were analyzed based on 20 microsatellite loci. Loci were amplified by Polymerase Chain Reactions and products were electronically recorded and converted into [628 x 20] matrix representing genotypes of individuals. Reliability of the genotyping and ge...
Reassessment of genetic diversity in native turkish sheep breeds with large numbers of microsatellite markers and mitochondrial DNA (MTDNA)
Doğan, Şükrü Anıl; Togan, İnci Zehra; Department of Biology (2009)
In the present study, within and among breed genetic variability in seven native Turkish sheep breeds (Akkaraman, Dağlıç, Gökçeada, İvesi, Karayaka, Kıvırcık and Morkaraman) were analyzed based on 20 microsatellite loci. For the analysis, various statistical methods such as Neighbor-Net, Factorial Correspondence Analysis (FCA) and Structure were used. High level of genetic variability within the Turkish breeds was observed. Gene pools of the breeds were visualized and found that they are highly overlapping ...
Genetic diversity of native and crossbreed sheep breeds in Anatolia
Koban, Evren; Togan, İnci Zehra; Department of Biology (2004)
In this study the genetic diversity in Turkish native sheep breeds was investigated based on microsatellite DNA loci. In total, 423 samples from 11 native and crossbreed Turkish sheep breeds (Akkaraman, Morkaraman, Kivircik, Ivesi, Dagliç, Karayaka, Hemsin, Norduz, Kangal, Konya Merinosu, Türkgeldi) and one Iraqi breed (Hamdani) were analyzed by sampling from breeding farms and local breeders. After excluding close relatives by Kinship analysis, the genetic variation within breeds was estimated as gene dive...
