Segregation of paternal marker alleles in the progeny of a single boar was used to estimate linkage between the marker genes and associations of these genes with quantitative trait loci (QTL). The sire was heterozygous at four polymorphic marker loci, haptoglobin (HP), glucosephosphate isomerase (GPI), phosphogluconate dehydrogenase (PGD), and esterase D (ESD), and sired 30 litters during an 8-mo period. Glucosephosphate isomerase and PGD were linked (theta = .09; P less than .005). The phase… CONTINUE READING
