The positional candidate diacylglycerol O-acyltransferase (DGAT1) gene affecting milk fat percentage is reported in Indian buffaloes (Bubalus bubalis). A comparison with Chinese buffalo (Bubalus bubalis) revealed eight exonic single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), five of which were non-synonymous. A total of 19 SNPs were observed among diverse buffalo breeds in India. A Unique 22 base insertion has been reported in the intron between exon ten and eleven.
