Analysis of porcine IGF2 gene expression in adipose tissue and its effect on fatty acid composition
(Plos One, 2019-08-08)
IGF2:g.3072G>A polymorphism has been described as the causal mutation of a maternally imprinted QTL for muscle growth and fat deposition in pigs. The objective of the current work was to study the ...
Expression analysis of candidate genes for fatty acid composition in adipose tissue and identifcation of regulatory regions
(Scientific Reports, 2018-02-01)
The aim of this work was to study the genetic basis of the backfat expression of lipid-related genes associated with meat quality traits in pigs. We performed a genome-wide association study with ...
Identification of eQTLs associated with lipid metabolism in Longissimus dorsi muscle of pigs with different genetic backgrounds
(Scientific Reports, 2020-06-17)
Intramuscular fat content and its fatty acid composition affect porcine meat quality and its nutritional value. The present work aimed to identify genomic variants regulating the expression in the porcine ...
Identification of strong candidate genes for backfat and intramuscular fatty acid composition in three crosses based on the Iberian pig
(Scientific Reports, 2020-08-18)
Meat quality has an important genetic component and can be modified by the fatty acid (FA) composition and the amount of fat contained in adipose tissue and muscle. The present study aimed to find genomic ...
