Anim. Sci. 95: 31-36. The PGM1 gene from four porcine breeds (Berkshire, Duroc, Landrace, and Yorkshire) is highly expressed in liver tissue at the transcriptional level. Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of PGM1 were examined to analyze association with increased expression of PGM1 gene in the Berkshire liver. A Leu525 synonymous SNP of Chr6:137174682A>G (c.1575A>G) was identified and showed significant (P<0.05) differences to backfat thickness, drip loss, protein content, fat content, Warner-Bratzler shear force, and post-mortem pH24h. Therefore, it is concluded that PGM1 synonymous SNP is an important factor regulating meat quality.
