Abstract :

A growing number of mutations within genes potentially associated with pork production and quality are neither classified nor described in a way facilitating the design and interpretation of experiments with the use of high throughput screening techniques. The aim of the paper presented here was to process and catalogue the publicly available information on single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) located within genes that are directly, indirectly or potentially associated with pig muscle growth and metabolism affecting yield and quality of pork. A constructed database is presented containing 153 SNPs within 113 genes. Among the 153 SNPs, 152 were found to be single nucleotide substitutions (117 transitions and 35  transversions). Additionally, one indel was included. All collected SNPs are described in a way enabling the automatic downloading of GenBank records to specialized software and simultaneous designing of PCR primers and allele-specific probes to be used in microarray technology. It is believed that collection of SNPs presented in this paper will serve as a reliable resource for SNP interaction studies, clarifying the genetic determination of pig muscle growth and metabolism, and – after validation in different breeds – also for parentage control, traceability tests and evolutionary studies in pig breeding.
