Differences in pig muscle proteome according to HAL genotype: implications for meat quality defects.

Bidimensional electrophoresis was used to compare sarcoplasmic protein profiles of early post-mortem pig semimembranosus muscles, sampled from pigs of different HAL genotypes (RYR1 mutation 1841T/C): 6 NN, 6 Nn, 6 nn. ANOVA showed that 55 (18%) of the total of 300 matched protein spots were influenced by genotype, and hierarchical clustering analysis… CONTINUE READING
