Source and Description of Primers. Primers were designed from published bovine and human androgen receptor (AR) sequences (GenBank accession number Z75315 and M27430, respectively). These primers were used to obtain a porcine sequence (submitted to GenBank: accession number AF079783). A total of 247 bp out of the entire 793-bp PCR product shared 90.3% identity with sections of exons 7 and 8 of the human AR gene. Porcine specific primers (AR-3 and AR-4) were then designed to amplify a 160-bp fragment in intron 7 of the AR gene region from porcine genomic DNA.
