Genetic variation in PLAG1 associates with early life body weight and peripubertal weight and growth in Bos taurus.
Variation at the pleiomorphic adenoma gene 1 (PLAG1) locus has recently been implicated in the regulation of stature and weight in Bos taurus. Using a population of 942 outbred Holstein-FriesianExpand
