Expression levels of transcriptional regulators in subcutaneous adipose tissue of purebred and crossbred Large White or Meishan fetuses gestated by sows of either breed. Subcutaneous adipose tissues sampled from 4 fetal genotypes at d 90 or d 110 of development 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 mRNA levels of transcriptional regulators in dorsal subcutaneous adipose tissue were measured by qPCR. Analysis of variance was used to determine the main effects of developmental age, fetal genotype and their interaction (A × G) on the expression levels of the target genes. Values were expressed as mRNA levels of the target gene relative to mRNA levels of housekeeping genes (arbitrary units). Least squares means sharing a common superscript letter did not significantly differ (P > 0.05)
