The cholecystokinin type A receptor g.179A>G polymorphism affects feeding rate.

Abstract

A polymorphism within the 5' untranslated region of the cholecystokinin type A receptor (CCKAR) gene has been shown to affect feed intake and growth in commercial pig lines. To further investigate the phenotype of animals carrying alternative alleles at this polymorphism, we genotyped animals from a distinct segregating commercial line and an experimental… (More)
