The genes GPAT/AIRC and purH are involved in the de novo purine biosynthesis; they all had genetic effect on muscle inosine monophosphate (IMP) content in chicken. This study was designed to investigate the effects of three single nucleotide polymorphisms distributed in GPAT/AIRC and purH genes on muscle IMP content in a relative large population of Chinese Baier chickens, single genotype effects as well as the epistatic effects were analysed. The results further showed that GPAT/AIRC and purH genes had effect on muscle IMP content, they might be candidate loci or linked to major genes that affect muscle IMP content; the epistatic effects were higher than the single genotype effects. Furthermore, the effects were strengthened when combining more gene loci. We tentatively conclude that combined genotypes are superior to single genotypes as potential molecular markers for meat quality traits in chicken.

More about this publication?
  • Avian Biology Research, formerly Avian & Poultry Biology Reviews, has adopted a new and exciting vision for publication of ornithological research in the 21st Century.

    This vision is based on two main concepts. First, the topics published by the journal will cover all aspects of ornithology. This will provide a forum for scientists to publish their work in a journal that will have a broad appeal. Second, the scope of the journal will expand to include reports of original research, letters, perspectives, news, diary and book reviews in addition to reviews. By considering a wide range of research fields for publication, Avian Biology Research provides a forum for people working in every field of ornithology.
