[Association of PCR-RFLP polymorphisms of IGF2 gene with fat deposit related traits in pig resource family].


Insulin-like growth factor 2(IGF2) play an important role in fetal growth and development, tumour cell proliferation and muscle growth. IGF2 is the major candidate gene for affecting muscle mass in pig. Here we found a Nci I PCR-RFLP within intron 8 of the porcine IGF2 gene, and studied on effect of IGF2 gene on fat deposition. A fragment of 575 bp within… (More)
