- The aim of this study was to estimate the relationship between prolactin receptor (PRLR) gene polymorphism and litter size in pigs of synthetic line 990 (n = 374). Prolactin receptor gene variants were determined by PCR–RFLP method. It was demonstrated that the analyzed polymorphism had significant influence (P ≤ 0.05) on reproduction traits in the first parity.
