The Use of Molecular and Biochemical Markers in Mangalitsa Breed Characterization

Abstract: The aim of this research was to characterize Red Mangalitsa breed population from Romania in order to include into the germoplasm preservation program. For this purpose we have chosen genetic characterization by individual fingerprinting using 14 microsatellite markers and also biochemical characterization of carcass quality by fatty acid level determination. Microsatellite markers helped us to characterize the population and give scientific basis for management practices. The fatty acid determination has indicated a higher level of polyunsaturated fatty acids, especially linoleic acid and a higher ratio P/S (polyunsaturated fatty acids / saturated fatty acids). These results confirm than population analyzed has characteristics of Red Mangalitsa and could be use to long germoplasm preservation.
