The mothering ability of a sow largely depends on the shape and function of the mammary gland. The aim of this study was to identify QTL for the heritable inverted teat defect, a condition characterized by disturbed development of functional teats. A QTL analysis was conducted in a porcine experimental population based on Duroc and Berlin Miniature pigs (DUMI). The significant QTL were confirmed by linkage analysis in commercial pigs according to the affected sib pair design and refined by… CONTINUE READING
