How the Leopard Lost Its Spots

(runtime: 1:43 min)

Why do the offspring of some leopards hide their spots, resulting in black panthers? An international team of researchers focused on ASIP, a gene that causes dark coat coloration in other felines. TaKaRa LA Taq® with GC Buffer was used to sequence a tricky stretch of exon 4 in leopards and Asian golden cats, identifying SNPs associated with melanistic coat color. Scientists can now answer the curious question of how leopards produce panthers. That's Good Science!™
