Interpretive Summary: A genetic marker was discovered and named S0719. This marker was typed across the MARC reference family and in a total of 344 purebred pigs representing 11 breeds. Results of the linkage analysis indicate this gene is located on pig chromosome 7 at position 77.5 cM. S0719 had 32 different sized products (alleles) detected in the purebred pigs and the average number of alleles found within a breed was 9.8. In excess of 90% of all animals genotyped had two different alleles (heterozygotes) and would be informative for genetic studies. This marker is quite useful for individual animal identification and parentage determination.

Technical Abstract: A microsatellite repeat was discovered in an intron of the phosphoglycerate kinase 2 gene in the pig. The genetic marker was named S0719 and was typed across the MARC reference family and in a total of 344 purebred pigs representing 11 breeds. Results of the linkage analysis indicate this gene is located on pig chromosome 7 at position 77.5 cM. S0719 had 32 different sized products (alleles) detected in the purebred pigs and the average number of alleles found within a breed was 9.8. In excess of 90% of all animals genotyped had two different alleles (heterozygotes) and would be informative for genetic studies. This marker is quite useful for individual animal identification and parentage determination.
