the First authentic certificate on domestication of cats came to us from Egypt where these small animals were considered sacred and mummified on an equal basis with people. Striped and spotty cats whose features of genetics bring closer them to wild ancestors meet more often. Such "camouflage" does a predator invisible and hides during hunting.
If at lions, tigers or leopards only one color prevails, then a variety of drawings on fur of domestic cats strikes. are responsible For color of wool of each specific pet 3 genetic components:
depends On factors not only color of fur, but also a pattern on it: spots, strips, rings, thin lines on a muzzle. Such drawings are called the English term tabby that means "striped".
Scientists found out that initially all cats have strips and spots on a skin . The aguta gene allowing the put patterns is responsible for their emergence it will be shown. Its influence paints each strand of wood in the repeating strips, defining the drawing.
Existence in a genome of the animal recessive gene of a non-aguta which is responsible for uniform distribution of pigmentary granules in a hair can prevent it. In case of domination of this gene hair of an animal will be monophonic. This scheme does not work only about a genome of red color which suppresses non-agut therefore all red murlyk rejoice strips or spots.
Striped fur often meets both at not purebred, and at thoroughbred animals. the Colour of each individual is unique and unique , but specialists in a felinologiya distinguish 4 main patterns of a tabba:
Biologists are sure that striped cats developed in the natural way therefore differ in the strong immune system and balanced character.
