Please select one of the following tests for further information:
Please note: The red factor test offered by GeneControl laboratory detects the MC1R mutations g.14757924delG and g.14757910T> C (UMD3.1) with differentiation of the alleles ED, E + and e. It does not provide any information about the presence of further possible alleles in individual cattle breeds, which can also cause red coat color.
Dun mutation does not show any effect on red pigmented hair, so dependent on the status of the MC1R genotype an animal homozygous for dun dilution will be dun or red.
For possible interactions of MC1R and TYRP1 genotypes and their phenotypic effects, please see details given in the table below.
