Difference in Chromosomal Pattern and Relative Expression of Development and Sex Related Genes in Parthenogenetic Vis-A-Vis Fertilized Turkey Embryos

Parthenogenetic development in birds was reported in domestic fowl Gallus domesticus, domestic pigeon Columba livia but found to be most common in turkey (Meleagris gallopavo) with almost 20% incidence in general . Parthenogenetic birds (invariably males in turkey) are derived entirely from the maternal genome; the equivalent of self-fertilization will be achieved when parthenogenetic males will be bred to their mothers. Use of parthenogenetic males as sire could substantially reduce the number of embryonic lethal present in the genotype which is a major concern for early chick mortality in turkey.
