Short summary
One novel coding SNP was found in exon 1 of pig TMEM95 gene, namely NC_010454.3:g.341T > C, which was significantly associated with testis measurement traits at 15 days of age in the LW population (p < 0.05). Moreover, a significant relationship was found between this A47A polymorphism and testis weight at 40 days of age in LW population (p = 0.047). These results could contribute to breeding and genetics programs in the pig industry via DNA marker-assisted selection (MAS).
