The main goal of breeding programs for broiler chickens is to increase growth rate and breast and thigh muscles weight. The candidate gene approach is a powerful technique for genetically improving performance traits in chickens. We studied the associations of the single nucleotide polymorphisms of three genes involved in protein synthesis, glucose metabolism and cell proliferation (IGF1, IGFBP2, TGFβ3) with performance traits in the Hubbard F15 and Cobb E chicken lines. Based on our results, it can be concluded that the TGFβ3 gene could be used as a candidate gene marker for chicken growth traits.
