The aim of this work was to identify and analyse DNA markers in two cathepsin genes, cathepsin L (CTSL) and cathepsin S (CTSS), and study their association with meat quality parameters (including cathepsin activity of post mortem muscle) and several production traits in Italian Large White pigs. In silico analysis of the porcine CTSL and CTSS genes identified two new single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), one located in exon 5 (CTSL) and one positioned in the 5'-untranslated region (CTSS… CONTINUE READING
