Short summary
The occurrence of copy number variations (CNVs) has been confirmed on the Y chromosome in horses. However, the copy numbers (CNs) of Equus caballus Y chromosome (ECAY) genes are largely unknown. This study aimed to demonstrate the copy number variations of Y chromosome genes in horses. Therefore, the quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) method was applied to measure the CNVs of eight Y chromosome specific genes from 14 different Chinese horse breeds.
