Table 2 Effect of the SNP genotypes on marbling and subcutaneous fat thickness in experiment 2

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 204 2.83a ± 0.06 0.13 ± 0.30
GA 389 2.75a, b ± 0.05 0.47 ± 0.23
GG 160 2.54b ± 0.07 1.00 ± 0.31
  1. *The breeding values are given as least squares means ± SE.
  2. a, bMeans at different genotypes without a common letter in their superscripts significantly differ (P < 0.01).
