Coat Color Testing - E Locus

There are two pigments responsible for canine coat color: eumelanin, which produces a black coat, and pheomelanin, which produces shades from red to yellow. The gene responsible for their production is known as the Melanocortin 1 Receptor (MC1R), or the Extension Coat Color Locus (E Locus).

VetNostic Laboratories’ genetic test for the E locus can reliably identify:

E/E: Black
E/e: Carrier of Red to Yellow
e/e: Red to Yellow
