Abstract:
Genetic characteristics of the allele pool of four groups of the Yakut snow sheep subspecies (Ovis nivicola lydekkeri) inhabiting various parts of the Verkhoyansk Mountain Range such as Kharaulakh Ridge, Orulgan Ridge, ridges of the Central Verkhoyansk, and Suntar-Khayata Ridge is presented. Fragment analysis using 17 microsatellite loci was carried out using the ABI 3131xl genetic analyzer. Significant heterozygote deficiency was detected in all investigated snow sheep populations. Differentiation of the studied groups in accordance to their geographical origin was revealed.
