Table 1 Effect of the SNP genotypes on marbling and subcutaneous fat thickness in experiment 1

From: Association of a single nucleotide polymorphism in akirin 2 gene with marbling in Japanese Black beef cattle

   Breeding value*
Genotype No. of animals MARBLING SCORE Subcutaneous fat thickness (mm)
AA 26 2.96a ± 0.33 -3.91 ± 1.11
GA 48 2.30b ± 0.29 -2.15 ± 0.99
GG 26 2.27b ± 0.27 -3.19 ± 0.84
  1. *The breeding values are given as estimates ± SE.
  2. a, bEstimates at different genotypes without a common letter in their superscripts significantly differ (P < 0.05).
