Boar taint is an off-odour occurring while heating meat or fat from boars. A method detecting the three compounds (androstenone, skatole and indole) simultaneously in blood would offer substantial advantages since it would allow monitoring the impact of rearing strategies.

Immunocastration is a sustainable alternative to piglet castration but faces limited market acceptance. The phenomenon of non-responders has not to date been examined in detail, but adverse and stressful housing conditions (e.g., mixing of groups) might impair the success of
Kaat Verplanken et al.
Talanta, 169, 30-36 (2017-04-17)
Boar taint is a contemporary off-odor present in meat of uncastrated male pigs. As European Member States intend to abandon surgical castration of pigs by 2018, this off-odor has gained a lot of research interest. In this study, rapid evaporative
Yosuke Fukutani et al.
Analytical biochemistry, 471, 1-8 (2014-12-03)
Olfaction depends on the selectivity and sensitivity of olfactory receptors. Previous attempts at constructing a mammalian olfactory receptor-based artificial odorant sensing system in the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae suffered from low sensitivity and activity. This result may be at least

The steroidal pig pheromones androstenone (5α-androst-16-en-3-one), 3α-androstenol (5α-androst-16-en-3α-ol), and 3β-androstenol (5α-androst-16-en-3β-ol) as well as the heterocyclic aromatic amines skatole and indole, originating from microbial degradation of tryptophan in the intestine of pigs, are frequently recognized as the major compounds responsible
Karen K Yee et al.
Physiology & behavior, 76(4-5), 661-667 (2002-07-20)
We previously found that exposure-induced increase in odor sensitivity involves, at least in part, the olfactory epithelium. We did this by exposing mice to 5 alpha-androst-16-en-3-one (androstenone) and measuring changes in the epithelium. Past research showed that sensitivity to androstenone

Meat science, 92(4), 739-744 (2012-07-17)
The prevention of unpleasant boar taint is the main reason for castration of male piglets. This study aimed to investigate how the malodorous compound skatole is affected by a single nucleotide polymorphism (g.2412 C>T at -586 ATG) in the porcine

The level of cytochrome b5A (CYB5A) in pig testis is correlated with boar taint from androstenone and an AF016388:c.-8G>T polymorphism in CYB5A has been linked with low androstenone levels in the fat of pigs. In this study, we developed a
