Golden Tiger UPSC NOTE

 Golden tiger – basic details

  • A golden tiger, also called tabby tiger or strawberry tiger.

  • Its is a tiger with a colour variation caused by a recessive gene

  • They characterise blonde or pale-golden colour and reddish stripes in place of black like in normal tigers

  • Just like white tigers and black tigers, they aren't a separate subspecies of the tiger family as they look different only due to genetic reasons

  • Their rare skin tone is a result of excessive inbreeding.

  • Inbreeding is defined as the probability of two alleles in an individual being identical by descent, and is normally the result of mating related individuals.

  • It can increase the chances of offspring being affected by deleterious or recessive traits.

  • The yellow skin of tigers is controlled by a set of ‘agouti genes’ while the black stripes are controlled by ‘tabby genes’ and their alleles.

  • Suppression of any of these genes may lead to colour variation in a tiger

  • 'Agouti genes interacts with the pigment cells to produce yellow to red or brown to black expression

  • This interaction is responsible for making distinct light and dark bands in the hairs of animals such as the agouti here same is happening in our tigress - Kazi 106F.
