- ... IGF2-in3-G3072A is a causative mutation for paternally expressed quantitative trait loci on the p arm of porcine chromosome 2 with substantial effect on muscle growth and backfat thickness. The linkage disequilibrium between IGF2-in3-G3072A and IGF2-in7-G162C (IGF2-NciI) in four breeds and associations between these polymorphisms and growth and meat performance in pigs of the Large White breed wer ...
