英文摘要: Previous studies in the Norwegian pig breeds Landrace and Duroc have revealed a QTL for levels of skatole located in the region 74.7–80.5 Mb on SSC7. Skatole is one of the main components causing boar taint, which gives an undesirable smell and taste to the pig meat when heated. Surgical castration of boars is a common practice to reduce the risk of boar taint, however, a selection for boars genetically predisposed for low levels of taint would help eliminating the need for castration and be advantageous for both economic and welfare reasons. In order to identify the causal mutation(s) for the QTL and/or identify genetic markers for selection purposes we performed a fine mapping of the SSC7 skatole QTL region.
