Abstract—Biochemical and molecular variations were investigated in three rabbit genotypes namely Alexandria, V-line and Baladi Black in order to find molecular genetic markers which can differentiate between studied animals. This study was conducted during the production period of 2012-2013. The variations in some plasma biochemical parameters may be due to the genetic variations, which play an important part in the productive traits. Plasma total protein, albumin and albumin/globulin ratio were significantly (P<0.05) different among the studied rabbit genotypes. Electrophoretic analyses of plasma protein fractions and two isozymes, i.e., esterase and acid phosphatase were analyzed using polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (PAGE) technique. Protein fingerprinting of all three rabbit genotypes is devoid of qualitative variation. Fifteen protein bands are diagnostic to Alexandria, while 13 bands are detected for V-line as well as Baladi Black breed. The result of esterase indicated that band 4 and 12 was present in Alexandria but was absent in V-line and Baladi Black genotype, these bands might be taken to distinguish between Alexandria and other genotypes. The results of acid phosphatase indicated no conclusive results that could be reached regarding the detection of markers for genetic characterization. DNA non-specific primers RAPD analysis for the three rabbit genotypes using twenty random primers indicated that only 15 primers showed association with productive performance both with offspring and parents. Data presented here are the first report of genetic characterization of Alexandria line population. This investigation indicates that protein fingerprint, isozymes and RAPD analyses could be used as markers to characterize genetically rabbits populations under Egyptian conditions.
