Thats great news! Then you can make a match between Rus-variants more certainly!

And it is not a harmful procedure. With Ullie I did a dna-test recently if she was carrying the point-gene, not wanted in a Turkish Angora. It was not more than sweeping two little brushes in her mouth and sending them off to the laboratory.

Gene of a blue point. But these tests do in the USA?

Hi Vilia,

I do not know if it is about a blue-point gene. I think it is about a color-point gene in general. And it is a Australian company that does it, http://www.animalsdna.com/ . They will send swaps and a form which you can fill out. They will charge it on a creditcard and only charge when you send the samples in. It was not very expensive, about € 19 and fairly fast.

I did read that the test is not 100% sure yet...... 4 markers are found and there can be more markers for longhair..

But I'm very positive!

J'ai questionné un laboratoire de génétique, il m'a dit ne pas avoir de test fiable pour rechercher le gène Poils Longs.

I asked a genetic laboratory, they said not to have a reliable test for longhair gene.
