PSE: Screening of the Hal gene and the consequences of this technology

1er colloque recherche sur le porc a Lennoxville, Lennoxville, Quebec, Canada, 19 September 1995: 5-11
PSE: Screening of the Hal gene and the consequences of this technology
An account is given of the use of the polymerase chain to detect a mutation associated with malignant hyperthermia in pig tissue, described by A. Houde and S. A Pommier in 1993 (Meat Science (1993), 33, 349-358). The technique provides a rapid test for the identification of the presence of the Hal gene in homozygous and heterozygous carriers. The effects of the mutation on carcass composition and meat quality are discussed.
