Paper Title:
Association of Prkag3 Gene Polymorphisms with Meat Quality Traits in Chinese Meat-Type Quality Chicken Populations
  Abstract

In this study, we aimed to detect the single nucleotide polymorphism (SNPs) of the chicken PRKAG3 gene and discern the potential association with meat quality traits. A total of 240 meat-type quality chickens were screened by using single-strand conformational polymorphism analysis (SSCP) and DNA sequencing. Two SNPs (g.1744G>C and g.3207A>G) were identified in chicken PRKAG3 with medium polymorphism (0.25C were significantly associated with water content, crude protein, and crude ash (P<0.05/0.01). The SNP genotypes g.3207A>G were significantly associated with water content, and crude protein (P<0.01). The results suggested that PRKAG3 gene is potential major genes or is in close linkage disequilibrium with the QTL affecting meat quality traits in this population of chickens.
