MYOG

MYOG

A gene on chromosome 1q31-q41 that encodes myogenin, a muscle-specific transcription factor with a helix-loop-helix motif, which induces myogenesis; myogenin is required for the development of functional skeletal muscle.

k] represents the GHRH (k = AA, AB, BB), H-FABP (k = DD, DR, RR), and MYOG (k = AA, AB, BB) genotypes, and [e.
In the case of the MYOG gene, when the 353 bp PCR products were digested with MspI restriction enzyme, AA (353 bp), BB (219 and 134 bp) and AB types (353, 219, and 134 bp) appeared (Figure 1C).
Examination of the association between breed and the MYOG gene, showed higher frequency of BB genotype for all of the three breeds, Yorkshire, Landrace, and Duroc, (56.
The polymorphisms of the GHRH, H-FABP, and MYOG genes employed in this study were highly associated with breed.
For the MYOG gene, there was no significant effect of MspI polymorphic sites on the economic traits in this study.
This study attempted to investigate the association of the candidate genes GHRH, H-FABP and MYOG with economic traits in pigs.
