Description:

In crosses between wild boar and Large White pigs, a quantitative trait locus (QTL) for abdominal fat on chromosome 4 was affected by the parent-of-origin. That is, heterozygotes that inherited the Wild Boar allele through the male parent had higher percentages of abdominal fat (Knott SA et al, 1998).
