B-locus (Coat color brown) – PCR

Result: genotype B/B

Interpretation: The dog is a non-carrier of the genetic mutation
that is responsible for the brown coat color (b).
The dog can not pass the ”b” mutation onto its offspring.
The currently known mutations that are responsible for the
brown coat color were analyzed.
