Abstract :
Putative quantitative trait loci (QTL) regions on 5 chromosomes (SSC3, 6, 12, 15, and 18) were selected from our previous genome scans of a Duroc × Pietrain F2 resource population for further evaluation in a US commercial Duroc population (n = 331). A total of 81 gene-specific single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) markers were genotyped and 33 markers were segregating. The MDH1 SNP on SSC3 was associated with 45-min and ultimate pH (pHu), and pH decline. PRKAG3 on SSC15 was associated with pHu. The HSPG2 SNP on SSC6 was associated with marbling score and days to 113 kg. Markers for NUP88 and FKBP10 on SSC12 were associated with 45-min pH and L*, respectively. The SSC15 marker SF3B1 was associated with L* and LMA, and the SSC18 marker ARF5 was associated with pHu and color score. These results in a commercial Duroc population showed a general consistency with our previous genome scan.
