This study was conducted during the period 1/9/2014 – 1/2/2015 and aimed to identify the polymorphisms of IGF-1 gene in broiler chicken and their effects on some biochemical traits. A total of 300 one-day old broiler chicks (Cobb500, n=150; Hubbard F-15, n=150) were evaluated in this study. Blood samples were individually collected from all birds for DNA extraction. PCR-RFLP method being used for determination the genotypes of IGF-1 gene which then correlated with biochemical traits studied. Cobb500 broilers with TT genotype had significantly (p˂0.05) higher serum triglycerides values than those of TC and CC genotypes. Low density lipoprotein (LDL) were significantly (p˂0.05) higher in Hubbard F-15 broilers with TT genotype than those of TC and CC genotypes. Also, LDL were significantly (p˂0.05) higher in Hubbard F-15 than in Cobb500 broilers. LDL of broilers with TC genotype were significantly (p˂0.05) higher in males than females. Alanine transaminase (ALT) enzyme activity values were significantly (p˂0.05) higher in broilers with TC genotype than those of TT genotype. Cobb500 broilers with CC genotype had significantly (p˂0.05) lower aspartate transaminase (AST) enzyme activity than those of TT and TC genotypes. Hubbard F-15 broilers with TC genotype had significantly (p˂0.05) lower AST enzyme activity than those of TT and CC genotypes. It was concluded that the activity of ALT and AST enzymes were more influenced by IGF-1 gene polymorphisms.
