Transgenic pigs containing sFat-1 (synthesized fatty acid desaturase-1) gene were produced by DNA microinjection. The meat of these pigs contain ω-3 unsaturated fatty acid which is beneficial to the health of human being. The aim of this study is to assess the effects of expression of sFat-1 in pig on the health of animal themselves and on the safety of environment from the angle of the changes in microbe population of pig intestinal tract. Four F1 male semi-sibling of sFat-1 transgenic pigs… CONTINUE READING
