Several genes (PRKAA2, PRKAB1, PRKAB2, PRKAG3, GAA, GYS1, PYGM, ALDOA, GPI, LDHA, PGAM2 and PKM2), chosen according to their role in the regulation of the energy balance and in the glycogen metabolism and glycolysis of the skeletal muscle, were studied. Eleven single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) were identified in six of these genes (PRKAB1, GAA, PYGM, LDHA, PGAM2 and PKM2). Allele frequencies were analyzed in seven different pig breeds for these loci and for a polymorphism already described for GPI and for three polymorphic sites already reported at the PRKAG3 locus (T30N, G52S and I199V). Linkage mapping assigned PYGM and LDHA to porcine chromosome (SSC) 2, PKM2 to SSC7, GAA to SSC12, PRKAB1 to SSC14 and PGAM2 to SSC18. Physical mapping, obtained by somatic cell hybrid panel analysis, confirmed the linkage assignments of PRKAB1 and GAA and localized ALDOA, PRKAB2 and GYS1 to SSC3, SSC4 and SSC6, respectively. Pigs selected for the association study, for which several meat quality traits were measured, were first genotyped at the PRKAG3 R200Q polymorphic site (RN locus), in order to exclude carriers of the 200Q allele, and then were genotyped for all the mutations considered in this work. Significant associations (P ≤ 0.001) were observed for the PRKAG3 T30N and G52S polymorphic sites with meat colour (L* at 24 h post mortem).

Abstract

Several genes (PRKAA2, PRKAB1, PRKAB2, PRKAG3, GAA, GYS1, PYGM, ALDOA, GPI, LDHA, PGAM2 and PKM2), chosen according to their role in the regulation of the energy balance and in the glycogen metabolism and glycolysis of the skeletal muscle, were studied. Eleven single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) were identified in six of these genes (PRKAB1, GAA, PYGM, LDHA, PGAM2 and PKM2). Allele frequencies were analyzed in seven different pig breeds for these loci and for a polymorphism already described for GPI and for three polymorphic sites already reported at the PRKAG3 locus (T30N, G52S and I199V). Linkage mapping assigned PYGM and LDHA to porcine chromosome (SSC) 2, PKM2 to SSC7, GAA to SSC12, PRKAB1 to SSC14 and PGAM2 to SSC18. Physical mapping, obtained by somatic cell hybrid panel analysis, confirmed the linkage assignments of PRKAB1 and GAA and localized ALDOA, PRKAB2 and GYS1 to SSC3, SSC4 and SSC6, respectively. Pigs selected for the association study, for which several meat quality traits were measured, were first genotyped at the PRKAG3 R200Q polymorphic site (RN locus), in order to exclude carriers of the 200Q allele, and then were genotyped for all the mutations considered in this work. Significant associations (P ≤ 0.001) were observed for the PRKAG3 T30N and G52S polymorphic sites with meat colour (L* at 24 h post mortem). PGAM2 and PKM2 were significantly associated (P = 0.01) with drip loss percentage and glycogen content at one hour post mortem, respectively. Copyright © 2003 S. Karger AG, Basel.
