Piglet diarrhea is one of the primary factors that affects the benefits of the swine industry. Recent studies have shown that exon 2 of the swine leukocyte antigen-DQA gene is associated with piglet resistance to diarrhea; however, the contributions of additional exon coding regions of this gene remain unclear. Here, we detected and sequenced variants in the exon 3 region and examined their associations with diarrhea infection in 425 suckling piglets using the polymerase chain reaction-single-strand conformational polymorphism and sequencing analysis.
