Coat Colour: B Locus (rare variants: b4, be and bh) Brown Coat Colour

Test number: 8639

Breeds
Australian Shepherd , Huskies , Lancashire Heeler .
Description

This test is for the rare variants 'b4' , 'be' and 'bh'.

Australian Shepherd

The 'b4' is only found in few Australian Shepherd lines and so in this breed it would make sense to test for both the B-Locus panel (bd, bc and bs) as well as for this variant. You can take advantage of our special offer 'second coat colour test at half price'.

Lancashire Heeler

The 'be' is only found in Lancashire Heeler and so in this breed it would make sense to test for both the B-Locus panel (bd, bc and bs) as well as for this variant. You can take advantage of our special offer 'second coat colour test at half price'.

Husky

The 'bh' is only found in Husky and so in this breed it would make sense to test for both the B-Locus panel (bd, bc and bs) as well as for this variant. You can take advantage of our special offer 'second coat colour test at half price'.

important note

Please note that when you order this test we will only perform the test for the variant that isrelevant to your breed. In Australian Shephered we will only analyse the 'b4' allele, whereas in Lancashire Heeler, we will analyse the 'be' allele.

The B locus is responsible for the presence of brown, chocolate, or liver coat colour. It is also responsible for nose colour. If the dog has two copies of any of several b alleles, its coat colour will be brown in the pigmented areas because the mutation dilutes the eumelanin to brown.

This test checks if the dog carries 0, 1 or 2 copies of the mutation typically responsible for the brown coat colour, which is also known in some breeds as liver, chocolate, chestnut, sedge, and less frequently, red.

Sample Requirements
Whole blood in EDTA tube (0.5 - 1 ml) or Buccal Swabs.
