Restriction endonuclease cleavage patterns of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) of pigs and Japanese wild boars were analyzed using 17 enzymes which recognize six nucleotides. The map of cleavage sites was made by double-digestion methods. Polymophism of mtDNA was detected in the digestion by BglII, EcoRV, ScaI, and StuI. The restriction cleavage patterns were identical among the breeds of Landrace, Hampshire, Duroc I, and Large White I (A type). The patterns of Large White II were the same as those of… CONTINUE READING
