Summary and Implications

A three-generation resource family of a cross between the Berkshire and Yorkshire (BY) pig breeds and four pig commercial populations were used to investigate whether the Liver X Receptor Alpha (LXRA) and Beta (LXRB) genes play a role in influencing lean and fat growth in pigs. Our current findings from this study have suggested that LXRA and LXRB might have potential effects, especially for loin lean and fat content.
