Abstract: Two RAPD primers and 15 protein biochemical markers were examined to assess the zygosity (hetero/homozygocity) and per cent polymorphisms in monogamous (IM: IF) and triogamous (1M:2F) breeding groups of outbred Mongolian gerbils (Meriones unguiculatus). No polymorphism and heterozygosity were found in RAPD as well as biochemical markers in monogamous groups, whereas both primers in RAPD (%P=55%) and the seven biochemical markers (Alb-1, Es-2, Es-3, Hbb, Idh-1, Pgm-1 and Trf -1) showed polymorphism. On the basis of 15 biochemical markers, genetic variability in terms of per cent polymorphisms (%P=40%), observed heterozygosity (Hob=0.069±0.013), expected heterozygosity (He=0.214±0.277) were observed in triogamous groups. The reproductive performance was severely affected in monogamous groups (colony index, CI=0.33) due to the loss of heterozygosity within the population, whereas the best reproductive performance (CI =0.77) was achieved in heterozygous, triogamous groups.
