Table 3 Effect of the SNP genotypes on marbling and subcutaneous fat thickness in experiment 3

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 348 3.88a ± 0.04 1.39 ± 0.25
GA 382 3.74b ± 0.03 1.16 ± 0.23
  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 < 0.05).
