Deficiency of Uridine Monophosphate Synthase and deficiency of Factor XI are autosomal recessive inherited genetic disorders which affect all kinds of farm animals. Functional and physiological defects arising from such inherited disorders have negative impact on health and productivity and also reduce the rate of genetic improvement in cattle. This study was aimed to standardize PCR based test and be acquainted with the incidence of mutant alleles caused by two genetic disorders in cattle. Blood samples were collected from 327 cattle breeds: Karan Friss, Holstein Friesian, Tharparker, Haryana, Jersey and Red Sindhi. Genomic DNA from these animals was extracted and its quality assessed prior to PCR amplification. Primers were designed for DUMPS and FXI genes. An allele specific PCR technique was applied to amplify and detect mutation on the specific DNA target sequences. The amplified PCR products were purified and sequenced to confirm the change. Allele-specific PCR-based screening methodology was developed for Deficiency of Uridine Monophosphate Synthase and Factor XI cattle genetic disorders. All the tested animals were free from the aforementioned genetic disorders. However, this will not provide us conclusively cattle herds maintained at the study area free from these disorders. Therefore, it is highly suggested that screening works with large sample size should continue.

Key words: Autosomal, genetic disorders, genotyping, PCR optimization.
