Individual Identification and Paternity Tests for Equine

Individual Equine identification and paternity testing are tests intended to verify the identification of a Equine and its lineage by analyzing the STR genotype of its chromosome.

  • - Principle of testing DNA is a genetic matter that contains all the genetic information of the object, and every Equine has it s own DNA genotype, which distinguishes it from other Equine, by inheriting DNA from the paternal/maternal Equine. The DNA genotype is the genetic information specific to a Equine, which enables the identification of the Equine, and is the combination of gene loci featuring chain repetition.
    Individual identification is a test intended to determine the identicalness of DNA by verifying through analysis whether the DNA genotypes extracted from two specimens of the applicable Equine match each other. In addition, paternity testing is a method intended to verify the paternity by examining whether the genotype of a foal and that of a paternal or maternal Equine match each other, utilizing the genetic characteristics. DowGene DNA Testing Company performs analysis and determination based on 17 gene loci recommended by ISAG (International Foundation for Animal Genetics).
  • - Testable specimens Blood, meat, hair follicles, saliva, serum, etc.
  • - Test Procedures Request for testing → Collection of specimen and acceptance of application → DNA extraction → PCR amplification → Genotype analysis and interpretation → Notification of results
  • - Test ResultsA DNA analysis of a specimen (Equine) is conducted. If the genes found in the genetic loci all match (same type), then they are determined to belong to the same specimen. If a non-match is found in more than one genetic locus, then the genes are determined to be belong to different specimens.
  • - Application cases of testing
    • • When the confirmation of a lineage relationship is required
    • • When submission of paternity demonstration and confirmation documents to a relevant authority is required
    • • Other cases that require paternity testing for clear lineage demonstration
