Uncoupling protein 3 (UCP3) is a mitochondrial transmembrane carrier which uncouples oxidative phosphorylation and plays an important role in energy homeostasis and fatty acid transporting. In this study, two missense mutations (T221C and A448G) were detected in porcine UCP3 gene. Genotype frequencies were analyzed using polymerase chain reaction restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) in eight pig breeds (n = 384). The results revealed that Chinese native breeds had fixed genotypedoi:10.5897/ajb10.1846 fatcat:jjpnlbhevrhgzblidyph6cu4mi
