- ... Background: Growth and carcass traits are of great economic importance in livestock production. A large number of quantitative trait loci (QTL) have been identified for growth and carcass traits on porcine chromosome one (SSC1). A key positional candidate for this chromosomal region is TGFBR1 (transforming growth factor beta type I receptor). This gene plays a key role in inherited disorders at ca ...
