A quantitative trait locus (QTL) analysis of growth and fatness data from a three-generation experimental cross between Meishan (MS) and Large White (LW) pig breeds is presented. Six boars and 23 F1 sows, the progeny of six LW boars and six MS sows, produced 530 F2 males and 573 F2 females. Nine growth traits, i.e. body weight at birth and at 3, 10, 13, 17(More)
UNLABELLED Three-dimensional fluorescence in situ hybridization (3D-FISH) is used to study the organization and the positioning of chromosomes or specific sequences such as genes or RNA in cell nuclei. Many different programs (commercial or free) allow image analysis for 3D-FISH experiments. One of the more efficient open-source programs for automatically(More)
A high proportion of purebred Hampshire pigs carries the dominant RN- mutation, which causes high glycogen content in skeletal muscle. The mutation has beneficial effects on meat content but detrimental effects on processing yield. Here, it is shown that the mutation is a nonconservative substitution (R200Q) in the PRKAG3 gene, which encodes a(More)
SUMMARY The INRA-Minnesota Porcine Radiation Hybrid (IMpRH) Server provides both a mapping tool (IMpRH mapping tool) and a database (IMpRH database) of officially submitted results. The mapping tool permits the mapping of a new marker relatively to markers previously mapped on the IMpRH panel. The IMpRH database is the official database for submission of(More)
sur le chromosome 3 du porc (Sus scrofa L.) et analyse cytogénétique d'une lignée de hamster chinois issue de la DON (wg3h) Résumé L'analyse par électrophorèse de clones cellulaires hybrides interspécifiques porc-hamster chinois nous a permis de démontrer que les gènes MPI, PKM2, NP sont synténiques chez le porc (G ELUN et al., 1981). Le sous-clonage d'un(More)
An experiment was initiated in 1990 to study the RN locus, which has been shown to exert a major effect on a measurement of meat quality in pigs, the Napole technological yield (RTN). The animals used originated from a composite line (Laconie). Thirteen reference families of double backcross type (RN-/rn + X rn + /rn +) were selected to search for a marker(More)
The GENETPIG database has been established for storing and disseminating the results of the European project: 'GENETPIG: identification of genes controlling economic traits in pig'. The partners of this project have mapped about 630 porcine and human ESTs onto the pig genome. The database collects the mapping results and links them to other sources of(More)
