Determination of Breed Differences in Ag-NORs Occurrence in Pigs
Abstract:The investigations involved pigs of three breeds: Pietrain, Zlotnicka Spotted and Polish Landrace. The polymorphism in the number and size of nucleolar organizer regions was analyzed in animals of different breeds. It was observed that the average size of Ag-NORs in pigs was higher in chromosome pair 10 than in pair 8. The largest nuclelar organizer regions were observed in Polish Landrace pigs. The silver stained NORs were most frequently identified in the Pietrain breed.
