Gel Electrophoresis for the Study of Population Genetics in White-Tailed Deer
Manlove, John C. Avise, Hilburn O. Hillestad, Paul R. Ramsey, Michael H. Smith,
and Donald O. Straney
Methods for the collection, preparation and
extraction of tissues of white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginienus)
are given. Electrophoretic
technique, buffers, gel preparation and banding patterns for 27 proteins encoded
by 28 structural loci are described. In
a survey of 400 deer from the Savannah River Plant, nine loci were shown to be
polymorphic. The potential use of
population genetics information for wildlife management program is discussed.
