  PPARGC1A, the gene encoding peroxisome proliferative activated receptor-γ coactivator-1α is a useful candidate gene for pork quality due to its regulation of the determination of myofibre type. In this study, changes in developmental gene expression of PPARGC1A in longissimus dorsi muscles were examined in two pig breeds, Landrace (lean) and Meishan pigs (obese) at birth, 30, 60, 90, 120 and 150 days of age using quantitative real-time PCR. The results indicated that there were distinct expression patterns of PPARGC1A in the two pig breeds. At most stages, except at 30 and 60 days, the abundance of PPARGC1A mRNA in Meishan pigs was significantly higher than that in Landrace (p<0.01). Interestingly, there was a negative correlation between the PPARGC1A expression pattern and myofibre cross-sectional area across five developmental stages which implies that PPARGC1A might have an important influence on myofibre growth.

  The liver is a vital organ that plays a major role in metabolism and other functions in the body. In this study, researchers used microarray analyses to investigate the gene expression profile during the development of the liver in pigs (Suss crofa). Researchers identified various differentially expressed genes in the liver between the prenatal and postnatal stages. The upregulated genes in the prenatal liver were related to the cell cycle and developmental process. The genes that were upregulated in the postnatal liver were active in the immunological process. The study presented gene expression profiles of the porcine liver during the pre and post-natal stages which contribute to the understanding porcine liver development.
