ABSTRACT: Adenosine monophosphate deaminase gene (AMPD1) plays an important role in the purine nucleotide cycle.The AMPD1 gene is expressed predominantly in skeletal muscles. It related with Inosine monophosphate metabolism in muscles and carcass traits. Herein the AMPD1 gene was cloned and a CDS sequence of 2 195 bp was obtained and analyzed with PCR-SSCP. chi(2) analysis showed that the distribution of genotypes among Min pig, Yorkshire and Duroc are extremely sig-nificant different (Plt;0.01).
