Body weight and lipid concentration in subcutaneous adipose tissue of pure and crossbred Large White or Meishan fetuses gestated by sows of either breed. Purebred Large White (LW) or Meishan (MeiS) sows were inseminated with mixed semen from LW and MeiS boars. Pairs of purebred and crossbred (F1) fetuses were excised at d 90 or d 110 of gestation (n = 6 per age and per genotype). LW and F1_LW were from LW sows, whereas MeiS and F1_MeiS were from MeiS sows. A total of 48 fetuses were weighed (a). The triglyceride concentration was measured in the dorsal subcutaneous adipose tissue (b). Analysis of variance was used to determine the effects of gestational age, fetal genotype and the interaction between age and genotype (A × G). Least squares means sharing a common superscript letter did not significantly differ (P > 0.05)
