Abstract

Five new candidate genes for growth and carcass traits have recently been mapped in the pig by using either linkage analysis or analysis of a hybrid cell line panel. The genes mapped include the very long chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase gene (ACADVL) mapped to pig chromosome 12, the adenylate cyclase activating peptide, pituitary 1 gene (ADCYAP1) on chromosome 6, the calpain large polypeptide L3 gene (CAPN3), the myocyte-specific enhancer factor 2A gene (MEF2A) on chromosome 1, and the thyroid stimulating hormone receptor gene (TSHR) on chromosome 7. All five genes have the potential to influence carcass traits in the pig. Future studies will be conducted to investigate if any of the genes actually do influence these traits.
