1. The effects of polymorphisms of the visfatin gene on growth performance, carcase traits, meat quality and serum variables were investigated in an F(2) resource population of Gushi chickens crossed with Anka broilers. 2. A 9-bp ('TAACCTGTG') insertion/deletion in intron10 of the visfatin gene was found and a total of 964 individuals were genotyped in the resource population. Genotypes (II, ID and DD) were identified based on the 9-bp insertion (allele I) or deletion (allele D). The insertion… CONTINUE READING
