The Agouti gene is responsible for determining whether a dogs coat is banded (agouti) or of a solid color (non-agouti). The main product of the Agouti gene is Agouti Signalling Peptide (ASP), but there are a number of alternative splice products.

In dogs, the Agouti gene is associated with various coat colors and patterns, including sable and tan points.
