The present study aimed to investigate the polymorphism of MSTN gene in Awassi sheep. PCR-RFLP method was used to detect of MSTN gene polymorphism. Two genotypes (MM and mm) were detected in Awassi sheep. The allele frequency of M and m were 0.07 and 0.93, respectively, while genotype frequency of mm and MM were 0.85 and 0.15 respectively. The chi-square χ² test showed an agreement to Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium (P>0.05).
