Objectives of this study were to compare fatty acid composition of subcutaneous adipose tissue of entire boars, barrows, and male pigs vaccinated against boar taint with a vaccine containing a GnRH analogue-protein conjugate (Improvac, Pfizer Animal Health) and to investigate the association between fatty acid composition and protein expression of key lipogenic enzymes in entire boars, barrows, and vaccinated pigs. Differences between groups were observed in the content of total SFA (P≤0.001… CONTINUE READING
