Abstract

He, J., Lu, L., Tian, Y., Tao, Z., Wang, D., Li, J., Li, G., Shen, J., Fu, Y. and Niu, D. 2011. Short Communication: Analysis of intramuscular fat and fatty acids of different duck breeds and their association with SNPs of duckA-FABPgene. Can. J. Anim. Sci. 91: 593-596. Intramuscular fat (IMF) is related to organoleptic characteristics of meat. Adipocyte fatty acid-binding protein (A-FABP) is one of the intracellular lipid-binding proteins involved in the transportation of fatty acids. The IMF contents of six duck breeds were measured, and the complete sequence and part of the 5' flanking region of duck A-FABP gene were obtained in this study. The IMF contents of different breeds were significantly different (P<0.05). Two SNPs were detected in the exon 3, one (HQ640428: g.2018A>G) was significantly associated with the contents of three fatty acids, total IMF and pectoral muscle weight. This work provides useful data for duck breeding.
