Ankyrin 1 (ANK1) is a positional and functional candidate gene for both bovine and porcine meat quality. The objectives of this study were: (1) to determine if the gene expression levels of ANK1 are associated with pig meat quality traits; (2) to examine polymorphisms in the promoter region of the porcine ANK1 gene for association with meat quality in diverse breeds; and (3) to search for putative transcription factor binding sites predicted to be altered by such polymorphisms. ANK1 gene… CONTINUE READING
