Taxon:

Pig

Gene:

"Meat colour - CIELAB L (lightness of meat)" QTL

Chromosome:

01

Location:

64 cM

Description:

A search for QTLs affecting meat quality was carried out for crosses between Meishan and Dutch Large White and Landrace lines. 785 F2 carcasses and their parents were typed for genome-wide molecular markers. "Line-cross" and "half-sib" models were both used for detection of linkage. A region on SSC1 at 64cM (marker CGA) showed suggestive linkage with "Meat colour - CIELAB L (lightness of meat)" when paternally inherited, analysed under the line-cross model (P = 0.13)(de Koning DJ et al 2001).
