  2. Li Y, Sun Y, Xing F, Kang L, Wang P, Wang L, et al. Identification of a single nucleotide promoter polymorphism regulating the transcription of ubiquitin specific protease 18 gene related to the resistance to porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus infection. Vet Immunol Immunopathol. 2014;162:65-71 pubmed publisher
    ..These results suggest that the SNP G-1533A polymorphism in the promoter region of porcine USP18 gene is a potential DNA marker for the resistance to PRRSV. ..
