Correlation between the Asp298asn-polymorphism of mc4r gene and back fat width in large white pigs
[Free Full Text (pdf)]
Asp298Asn correlation between the mc4r gene polymorphism and development of such trait as back fat width in Large White pigs belonging to AF «Orzhitska» population was studied. The tendency of forming thinner back fat layer in animals possessing AG genotype was detected. Any reliable differences in back fat width between animal groups with various mc4r genotypes caused by the Asp298Asn polymorphism were not detected. A possible reason for the absence of statistically reliable difference may be heterogeneous origin of the studied animals. Using Asp298Asn polymorphism of mc4r gene in selecting the Large White AF «Orzhitska» pig population is unreasonable.
