Gene context of Sus scrofa

  • The European wild boar possessed a unique MC1R allele that we believe is required for the expression of a wild-type coat color [28].
  • Recently, a mutation in a regulatory element of the IGF2 gene was identified as the quantitative trait nucleotide (QTN) underlying the major QTL effect on muscle growth and BFT in crosses between Large White and Wild Boar or Pietrain [29].
  • In addition, SSC 4 was nearly significant for CRCL in the same region identified as affecting backfat in a wild boar x Large White population [30].
  • Genomic structure, promoter analysis and expression of the porcine (Sus scrofa) TLR4 gene [31].
  • These data indicate that the genes HPRT, G6PD, and alpha-GAL are located on the X-chromosome of the domestic pig [32].
