Abstract. Traditional selection of racing pigeons has been focusing on spatial orientation, velocity, and endurance of flight. LDHA gene is involved in aerobic and anaerobic metabolism of the muscle tissue (VAN HALL et al., 1999). Mutations in the LDHA gene can potentially diversify the homing performance of racing pigeons. Previously, two polymorphic sites of LDHA gene have been identified (DYBUS and KMIEĆ, 2002, DYBUS et al., 2006).
