Analysis of porcine IGF2 gene expression in adipose tissue and its effect on fatty acid composition
(Plos One, 2019-08-08) Genètica i Millora Animal
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 ...
Using genome wide association studies to identify common QTL regions in three different genetic backgrounds based on Iberian pig breed
(Public Library of Science, 2018-03-09) Genètica i Millora Animal
One of the major limitation for the application of QTL results in pig breeding and QTN identification has been the limited number of QTL effects validated in different animal material. The aim of the ...
Identification of eQTLs associated with lipid metabolism in Longissimus dorsi muscle of pigs with different genetic backgrounds
(Scientific Reports, 2020-06-17) Genètica i Millora Animal
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) Genètica i Millora Animal
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 ...
