Weighted gene co‐expression network analysis reveals potential candidate genes affecting drip loss in pork

27 days ago   |   By Animal Genetics

Summary
Drip loss is an essential evaluation indicator for pork quality. It is closely related to other meat quality indicators, including water‐holding capacity, water loss rate and pH value at 45 min and 24 h post‐mortem , and is influenced by environmental and genetic factors and their interactions. We previously conducted differentially expressed gene analysis to identify candidate genes affecting drip loss using eight individuals with extremely high‐ and low‐drip loss selected from 28 purebred Duroc pigs. Using 28 identical samples, in the present study, we performed weighted gene...
