INTRODUCTION Modern beef cattle used for our beef production are not exactly a property left by our ancestors, but composed products from native and imported cattle. Most native cattle were graded up by British and continental breeds for a few generations about 90 years ago. It should be pointed out, however, that they are the sole domestic farm animals in our country contributing to practical animal production at present, originating from our native animals.

Association between temperament and polymorphisms of CRH and leptin in Japanese Black Cattle

TLDR
The findings suggest that the LEP polymorphism is involved in behavioral traits in Japanese Black cattle and may be useful in selecting JapaneseBlack cattle with the trait of being docility.

Association of Bovine Fatty Acid Desaturase 2 Gene Single-Nucleotide Polymorphisms with Intramuscular Fatty Acid Composition in Japanese Black Steers

TLDR
It was concluded that rs211580559 of the FADS2 gene may be a useful selection marker for reducing unfavorable volatiles generated from linoleic acid in JBK beef during the cooking process.

Variations in genes involved in fat metabolism and their association with ultrasonic and carcass traits in Japanese Black steers.

TLDR
The findings suggest that the polymorphisms in SCD and SREBP1 are functional mutations or could be related to mutations that can aid in selection to improve some ultrasonic and carcass traits.
