Additional file 2: Figure S1:

The genomic structure of the porcine MUC4 gene (lower panel) and locations of 53 SNPs covering a 92-kb region around MUC4 (upper and lower panels). Blue boxes indicate exons and thin lines indicate introns. Untranslated regions at 5’ and 3’ end are highlighted in yellow. Exon 2 of MUC4 is a tandem repetitive region in which no SNP was genotyped in this study.
