Abstract. Among the expressed sequence tags (ESTs) with different expression in M. biceps femoris of healthy and splay leg piglets there were several fragments lacking an annotation (MAAK et al., 2001). The aims of this study were (1) to identify the gene represented by one of these anonymous ESTs (GenBank accession no. AJ271018) through inter-species comparison and (2) to determine its chromosomal location in swine by radiation hybrid and in-silico mapping. Identification of the function of the gene and its mapping should clarify whether the gene can be considered a candidate for congenital splay leg.
