Adaptation of indigenous goat populations in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (SA) for low feed
intake, harsh environmental conditions and limited water resources was reported by El-Nouty
et al. (1990). The common native goat breeds in the Kingdom are Ardi, Bishi, Jabaly and
Tohami. Ardi goat is black coloured with white leaf ears and horns present in both sexes (Fig.
1). Genetic characterisation is very useful and widely used to categorise animals in the world
and important for conservation of genetic resources (Kevorkian et al., 2010). Thus,
characterisation could enhance many attributes of breed traits such as resistance to diseases
and fertility. Microsatellites are the markers of choice for genetic characterisation of livestock
due to their various advantages (Baumung et al., 2004). The objective of the present study
was to evaluate the genetic variability of Ardi goats in SA based on microsatellites.

Materials and methods

Unrelated and randomly selected 43 Ardi goats were blood sampled (10 mL from the jugular
vein) and the DNA was extracted using GFX Genomic Blood Kit and checked for quality and
quantity using a spectrophotometer. Fourteen fluorescent labelled microsatellite markers,
recommended by International Society for Animal Genetics (ISAG) were used to extract and
amplify the DNA by PCR using an AB GeneAmp® PCR 9700. Amplified products were
separated by ABI Genetic Analyser 3130. Microsatellite fragment sizing was performed by
the GeneMapper® v.4.0. Statistical analysis was carried out using Cervus v.3.0.3 from Field
Genetics Limited to assess the expected heterozygosity (He), observed heterozygosity (Ho)
and polymorphic information content (PIC). Fixation Index (Fis) and Hardy Weinberg
Equilibrium (HWE) were calculated by GenePop v.4.0.10., and Bottleneck was analysed
using v.1.2.02. Popgene v.1.31.

Results and Discussion

All 14 microsatellites tested amplified well and were found to be polymorphic, containing a
minimum of three alleles and a maximum of nine alleles. The highest observed
heterozygosity was shown by locus SPS113 (0.88), while the lowest was (0.26) by MAF209.
Maximum He was given by MAF70 (0.83) and the minimum was (0.35) by ILSTS005. Ten
markers (Table 1) showed higher heterozygote alleles than the homozygote. All of the
markers showed alleles which were within the expected sizes. HWE test indicated that seven
loci: ILSTS011, ILSTS005, SPS113, ILSTS029, SRCRSP3, MAF70 and OarAE54, were in
HWE. All markers, except ILSTS005, showed acceptable informative capacity with PIC
values higher than 0.5. Mean Fis value was 0.18. Ardi showed higher expected genetic
diversity (0.69) when compared with some Asian goat breeds of southern Sri Lanka (0.48),
Jamunapari (0.54) (Gour et al., 2006), and Korean goats (0.38) (Kim et al., 2002). On the
other hand Ardi showed less genetic diversity when compared with some of the Indian
breeds: Kutchi (0.80), and Mehsana (0.77) (Behl et al., 2003). The mean number of alleles and
He detected were very good indices of the genetic polymorphism within breeds. The PIC
values show the suitability of the markers for analysing the genetic variability. Kumar et al.
(2009) reported the PIC mean of 0.65 for Gohilwaris. The high PIC values of the particular
markers suggest their usefulness for genetic polymorphism related research and linkage
mapping projects in goats. Mode shift indicator and Sign test, Standardised Differences test
and Wilcoxon rank test showed that there was no bottleneck in Ardi goats. In general, from
all of these indices, Ardi goats have a considerable amount of genetic polymorphism.
Therefore, any unique alleles present in this breed may not have been lost.
