  The part of the bovine genome which shows a superior action and explains the major part of variation of the economical production traits were known as QTL. PIT1 gene which is also termed hormone factor-1 is a pituitary-specific transcription factor which has responsible for pituitary development and hormone expression in mammals. The main function of PIT1 is for binding and trans-activity promoters of both Growth Hormone (GH) and Prolactin (PRL) gene. It was subjected to different molecular studies as a key role for understanding genetic variation in dairy cattle. This study was aimed to detect the polymorphism in a part of PIT1 gene, exon 6, in Najdi cattle. DNA was extracted from blood sample collected from 84 Najdi cattle and submitted for Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) followed by digestion with HinfI restriction enzyme. Base on PCR-RFLP method, the researchers found that the frequency of the A and B alleles of this gene for Najdi cattle were 18.45 and 81.55%, respectively. The genotypic frequencies of AA, AB and BB were 3.57, 29.76 and 66.66%, respectively.

  Data and pedigree information of Arman lambs breed were collected in Abbas-Abad sheep breeding station, Mashhad, Iran by separating direct genetic, maternal genetic and maternal permanent environmental effects during 1997-2008. Genetic parameters of Birth Weight (BW), Weaning Weight (WW) and 6 Months Weight (6 MW) were estimated using mixed animal models of DFREML computer software. For all traits, the fix effects were lamb’s sex, birth type, age of dam and birth year and the random effects were direct additive genetic, maternal additive genetic, maternal permanent environment and maternal common environment. Six different models of analysis were fitted into each trait by ignoring or including maternal genetic effects or common environmental effects. Most appropriate model for each trait was determined by likelihood ratio test. The test indicate that models including direct and maternal genetic effect, without covariance between them was the most appropriate model for BW and WW and the model including effects common environmental due to dam was the most appropriate model for 6 MW. Direct heritability values of 0.094, 0.101 and 0.145 were estimates for BW, WW and 6 MW, respectively. Maternal heritability for birth and weaning weights 0.173 and 0.112 was estimated, respectively. The effect of permanent environmental due to dam for 6 months weight was estimated 0.089. The results generally show that considering effect of maternal in animal models are necessary for correct estimating direct heritability of growth trait of lambs.
