Differences in abundance of secreted adipose proteins in purebred and crossbred Large White or Meishan fetuses gestated by sows of either breed at d 90 or d 110 of gestation. Four fetal genotypes were analyzed (n = 6 per age and per genotype). LW and F1_LW were from LW sows, whereas MeiS and F1_MeiS were from MeiS sows. The abundance of a given protein spot was expressed relative to an internal standard; values were log transformed. When multiple spots corresponded to the same identified protein, the mean abundance was used to produce the bar charts. Analysis of variance was used to determine whether fetus genotype altered the time-course changes in the abundance of the proteins in dorsal subcutaneous adipose tissues between d 90 and d 110 of gestation. The P-value for the interaction effect between age and genotype (A × G) is indicated for selected adipose proteins. AHSG: alpha-2-HS glycoprotein; ALB: albumin; APOA1: apolipoprotein A1; TF: transferrin Least squares means sharing a common superscript letter did not significantly differ (P > 0.05)
