The association between acyl-CoA synthetase (ACSL4) polymorphism and intramuscular fat content in (Landrace × Yorkshire) × Duroc pigs.

The aim of the study was to check whether different genotypes at acyl-CoA synthetase (ACSL4 locus, SNP G2645A) are associated with pork quality. 132 (Landrace × Yorkshire) × Duroc fatteners were genotyped by originally developed PCR-RFLP method. Upon the slaughter, the samples of longissimus lumborum muscle were taken from each carcass to determine the… CONTINUE READING
