Abstract: Present investigation was aimed to analyze the polymorphism of Class II DRB gene region of MHC, using PCR-RFLP with PstI and TaqI restriction enzymes, in endangered Jamunapari goat breed. A total of 203 Jamunapari goats (male-77 & female-126) were included in the study to know the distribution of different genotypes in the population. PstI revealed three genotypes, i.e., PP, Pp and pp, with genotype frequency as 0.054, 0.222 and 0.724, respectively. TaqI also showed TT, Tt and tt genotypes with frequencies of 0.241, 0.527 and 0.232, respectively. The frequencies of P and p alleles were 0.165 and 0.835, while frequencies of T and t alleles were 0.505 and 0.495, respectively. Marked variations were observed in the distribution of PstI and TaqI generated genotypes in the Jamunapari goat population.
