We previously mapped a locus for porcine intramuscular fat content (IMF) by linkage analysis to a 17.1-cM chromosome interval on Sus scrofa chromosome 7 (SSC7) flanked by microsatellite markers SW1083 and SW581. In this study, we identified 34 microsatellite markers and 14 STSs from the 17.1-cM IMF quantitative trait loci (QTL) region corresponding to HSA14q and aligned those loci using the INRA-University of Minnesota porcine radiation hybrid (IMpRH) panel. We then constructed a 5.2-Mb porcine… 

Localization of 31 porcine transcripts to the pig genome by SSRH radiation hybrid mapping

The general syntenic structures of chromosomes were conserved among cattle, humans and pigs except for the presence of additional chromosomal breakages in humans and bovine due to an increase in chromosome numbers.

Haplotype analysis within quantitative trait locus affecting intramuscular fat content on porcine chromosome 7

Nine genes are proposed as positional candidate genes for quantitative trait loci affecting intramuscular fat content based on the pig genome assembly and the frequency of 33 haplotypes that formed non-synonymous substitutions in four breeds are surveyed.

Integrated high-resolution physical and comparative gene maps in horses

Dense gene maps were generated for each of the seven equine chromosomes by adding 408 new markers to the current maps of these chromosomes, thereby greatly improving overall map resolution to one mapped marker every 960kb on average.

Identification of QTL with effects on intramuscular fat content and fatty acid composition in a Duroc × Large White cross

The study presented results from two complementary approaches, a segregation analysis and a QTL detection, to seek out genes involved in the higher IMF content observed in the Duroc population.

Genome-wide QTL mapping of nine body composition and bone mineral density traits in pigs

A genome-wide mapping of quantitative trait loci (QTL) associated with nine body composition and bone mineral traits associated with pigs identified 72 QTL, some of which confirmed results of previous studies in pigs, and detected significant associations that have not been published before.

A BAC contig map over the proximal ∼3.3 Mb region of horse chromosome 21

The dense map developed in this study will prove useful for the assembly and annotation of the sequence data on ECA21 and will be instrumental in rapid search and isolation of candidate genes for traits mapped to this region.

Genome-Wide Association Study of Meat Quality Traits in a White Duroc×Erhualian F2 Intercross and Chinese Sutai Pigs

A genome-wide association study using the Illumina PorcineSNP60K Beadchip found thirteen new candidate genes for IMF, marbling and firmness, on the basis of their positions, functional annotations and reported expression patterns, which will contribute to further identification of the causal mutation underlying these QTLs and future marker-assisted selection in pigs.

Segregation of Regulatory Polymorphisms with Effects on the Gluteus Medius Transcriptome in a Purebred Pig Population

The authors' data provide substantial evidence that there is a remarkable amount of within-breed genetic variation affecting muscle mRNA expression, and most of this variation acts in trans and influences biological processes related with muscle development, lipid deposition and energy balance.

Fine mapping the number of corpora lutea quantitative trait loci on SSC3: analysis of the porcine follicle-stimulating hormone receptor gene.

In females, follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) targets a FSH receptor (FSHR) expressed only on granulose cells, inducing maturation of the ovarian follicles. We hypothesized that genetic variants in



A comprehensive map of the porcine genome.

The high-resolution comprehensive map has the marker density needed to identify quantitative trait loci (QTL), implement marker-assisted selection or introgression and YAC contig construction or chromosomal microdissection.

Detection of quantitative trait loci for backfat thickness and intramuscular fat content in pigs (Sus scrofa).

Both approaches can complement each other in the analysis of data from outbred line crosses and revealed for backfat thickness a highly significant QTL on chromosome 7 and suggestive evidence for a QTL at chromosome 2.

The X Chromosome harbors quantitative trait loci for backfat thickness and intramuscular fat content in pigs

This paper reports on the search for autosomal quantitative trait loci (QTL) for fatness traits in an experimental intercross between the obeseChinese Meishan breed and lean Dutch White production lines.

Quantitative trait loci analysis for growth and carcass traits in a Meishan x Duroc F2 resource population.

Analysis of marker genotypes supported the breed of origin results and provided further evidence that a suggestive QTL for circumference of cannon bone also was segregating within the Meishan parent.

Construction of a whole-genome radiation hybrid panel for high-resolution gene mapping in pigs

The initial results for this chromosome indicate that the resolution of the radiation hybrid map is 18 times higher than that obtained by linkage analysis.

Construction and evaluation of a porcine bacterial artificial chromosome library.

A porcine bacterial artificial chromosome library and the PCR screening system are useful for isolation of genomic DNA fragments containing desired sequences.

Mapping quantitative trait loci in crosses between outbred lines using least squares.

The use of genetic maps based upon molecular markers has allowed the dissection of some of the factors underlying quantitative variation in crosses between inbred lines. For many species crossing

Susceptibility to insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus maps to a locus (IDDM11) on human chromosome 14q24.3-q31.

There was significant linkage heterogeneity between the HLA-defined subsets of families, suggesting that IDDM11 may be an important susceptibility locus in families lacking strong HLA region predisposition.

Bayesian statistical analyses for presence of single genes affecting meat quality traits in a crossed pig population.

It was concluded that cooking loss, two pH measurements and possibly backfat thickness are influenced by one gene, and that a second gene influences intramuscular fat and possibly shearforce and drip loss.

Gene-specific universal mammalian sequence-tagged sites: Application to the canine genome

The method for designing primers is refined to maximize the number that produce successful amplifications across as many mammalian species as possible, and these primer sets are named “universal mammalian sequence-tagged sites” because they should be useful for many mammalian genome projects.
