Abstract

We have sequenced 3,013bp of the pig acyl coenzyme A long-chain synthetase 1 (ACSL1) gene. Sequence analysis allowed us to identify three conserved elements in the predicted amino acid sequence, two of them related to the ATP/AMP signature motif and the third involved in enzyme catalysis and fatty acid substrate specificity. In addition, we have identified five CT and one GA transition polymorphisms located in exon 16 (SNPe16), exon 17 (SNPe17) and the 3' UTR (SNPa to d), which have been genotyped in 143 pigs from the Landrace, Large White, Pitrain, Iberian, and Duroc breeds.
