Summary

The objective of this study was to evaluate the variability of the αs1-casein locus in the Scopelos breed. Skopelos is an indigenous Greek dairy goat breed that is characterised by high milk yield and robusteness. The notion is that the extensive polymorphisms of the caprine gene (CSN1S1) that encodes the aS1 casein (CN) fraction in different goat breeds is associated with milk yield and composition. The latter are investigated and discussed for Skopelos goats.
