Genome-wide linkage and QTL mapping in porcine F2 families generated from Pietrain, Meishan and Wild Boar crosses
Summary Three informative pig F2 families based on European Wild Boar (W), Meishan (M) and Pietrain (P) crosses have been used for genome-wide linkage and quantitative trait loci (QTL) analysis.Expand

Combined analyses of data from quantitative trait loci mapping studies. Chromosome 4 effects on porcine growth and fatness.
For many species several similar QTL mapping populations have been produced and analyzed independently. Joint analysis of such data could be used to increase power to detect QTL and evaluateExpand

Linkage and QTL mapping for Sus scrofa chromosome 9
Summary Linkage and QTL maps of Sus scrofa chromosome 9 (SSC9) were constructed using 16 markers, with 13 to 15 used in three F2 families based on Wild Boar (W), Meishan (M) and Pietrain (P)Expand

Linkage and QTL mapping for Sus scrofa chromosome 4
Summary Linkage maps of Sus scrofa chromosome 4 (SSC4) based on 19 markers were similar in lengths for three F2-families [Wild Boar (W), Meishan (M) and Pietrain (P) crosses] and in agreement withExpand

A new HpaII PCR-RFLP within the porcine prolactin receptor (PRLR) gene and study of its effect on litter size and number of teats
DNA polymorphism of the porcine prolactin receptor gene (PRLR) was investigated and used to study its effect on litter size and number of teats in pigs. By means of PRLR gene sequence homology inExpand

Linkage and QTL mapping for Sus scrofa chromosome 6
Summary Linkage maps have been constructed for Sus scrofa chromosome 6 (SSC6) based on 17 markers, of which 10 were used in all three F2 families of Wild Boar (W), Meishan (M) and Pietrain (P)Expand

Linkage and QTL mapping for Sus scrofa chromosome 7
Summary Linkage maps of Sus scrofa chromosome 7 (SSC7) for three informative F2 families, based on Wild Boar (W), Meishan (M) and Pietrain (P) crosses, were constructed using 16 marker loci. MapsExpand

New SNPs in the IGF2 gene and association between this gene and backfat thickness and lean meat content in Large White pigs.
IGF2-in3-G3072A is a causative mutation for paternally expressed quantitative trait loci on the p arm of porcine chromosome 2 with substantial effect on muscle growth and backfat thickness. TheExpand

Linkage and QTL mapping for Sus scrofa chromosome X
Summary The Sus scrofa chromosome X (SSCX) linkage and QTL maps, based on 11 markers, were investigated in F2 families generated from Wild Boar (W), Meishan (M) and Pietrain (P) crosses. TheExpand
