Polymorphism in the exon 7 to the 3’ flanking region of β-lactoglobulin (β-lg) gene in Turkish hair goat populations were investigated. The study was carried out including 233 hair goats using PCR-RFLP. Digestion of amplification product with SacII restriction enzyme revealed two alleles namely S1 and S2 (which was produced by a single nucleotide substitution) and three genotypes (S1S1, S1S2 and S2S2) in the studied population. The genotypic frequencies of S1S1 and S1S2 were almost equal. S2S2 genotype was found to be lower than other genotypes (S1S1 and S1S2) in the studied population. The allele frequencies of S1 and S2 at β-lg locus were 0.67 and 0.33 in hair goat population, respectively. Deviation from Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium was not detected.
