Meat quality traits are economically important because they affect consumers' acceptance, which, in turn, influences the demand for beef. However, selection to improve meat quality is limited by the small numbers of animals on which meat tenderness can be evaluated due to the cost of performing shear force analysis and the resultant damage to the carcass. Genome wide-association studies for Warner-Bratzler shear force measured at different times of meat aging, backfat thickness, ribeye muscle…

Genome-wide association and pathway analysis of carcass and meat quality traits in Piemontese young bulls.
TLDR
Genotype data from the 'GeneSeek Genomic Profiler Bovine LD' array in a cohort of double-muscled Piemontese beef cattle were conducted and several pathways related to transmembrane transport were overrepresented for meat colour parameters.
Network Analysis Reveals Putative Genes Affecting Meat Quality in Angus Cattle
TLDR
The results suggest that network analysis using partial correlations and annotation of significant SNP can reveal the genetic architecture of complex traits and provide novel information regarding biological mechanisms and genes that lead to complex phenotypes, like meat quality, and the nutritional and healthfulness value of beef.
Genomic Approaches Reveal Pleiotropic Effects in Crossbred Beef Cattle
TLDR
This study identified genomic regions with pleiotropic effects on carcass and meat quality traits in a multibreed Angus–Brahman population that included purebred and crossbred animals and revealed 317 genes directly related to carcass quality, meat quality, and tenderness in beef cattle.
Genome-wide association study between copy number variation regions and carcass- and meat-quality traits in Nellore cattle
TLDR
A genome-wide association study between copy number variation regions (CNVRs) and carcass- and meat quality-traits in Nellore cattle revealed several CNVRs harboured genes that might have a functional impact to improve the beef and carcASS traits.
Comparative muscle transcriptome associated with carcass traits of Nellore cattle
TLDR
This work identified genes, metabolic pathways, and biological processes, involved in differentiation, proliferation, protein turnover, hypertrophy, as well as adipogenesis and lipid biosynthesis related to REA and BFT, which are economically important carcass traits for beef production.
Genome scan for postmortem carcass traits in Nellore cattle.
TLDR
Several genomic regions containing plausible candidate genes that may be associated with carcass traits in Nellore cattle are identified and can be helpful for further functional genomic studies.
Genomewide association mapping and pathway analysis of meat tenderness in Polled Nellore cattle.
TLDR
The results help to elucidate the genetic architecture and metabolic pathways underlying this trait, which is of extreme economic and social importance to Brazil, because Nellore is the dominant beef cattle breed in the country.
Genome-Wide Association Study of Meat Quality Traits in Nellore Cattle
TLDR
The study of these genes in Nellore cattle is the first step in the identification of causal mutations that will contribute to the genetic evaluation of the breed, and these genes are related to growth, muscle development and lipid metabolism.
Identification of genomic regions related with carcass traits in Nellore beef cattle
TLDR
With ssGWAS method using high density panel was possible to identify regions related to ribeye muscle area and backfat thickness in Nellore beef cattle and those genes and their pathways will be investigated to evaluate their importance for meat quality traits.
Differences in global gene expression in muscle tissue of Nellore cattle with divergent meat tenderness
TLDR
This study revealed the differential expression of genes and functions in Nellore cattle muscle tissue, which may contain potential biomarkers involved in meat tenderness.

Detection of quantitative trait loci for meat quality traits in cattle.
TLDR
The study used phenotypic data from 235 second-generation cross-bred bull calves of a Charolais x Holstein experimental population to detect quantitative trait loci affecting sensory, organoleptic, physical and chemical properties of meat.
Association of a single nucleotide polymorphism in the calpastatin gene with carcass and meat quality traits of beef cattle.
TLDR
The CAST SNP allele C was associated with increased LM tenderness across days of postmortem aging and, importantly for the beef industry, had a significant reduction in the percentage of steaks rated unacceptably tough by consumers based on an assumed threshold level.
QTL for meat tenderness in the M. longissimus lumborum of cattle.
TLDR
Three quantitative trait loci (QTL) for beef tenderness identified in 598 animals of three Charolais-Brahman x Belmont Red pedigrees after screening the whole genome using 183 DNA markers.
Association of selected SNP with carcass and taste panel assessed meat quality traits in a commercial population of Aberdeen Angus-sired beef cattle
TLDR
Novel associations have been identified which, following validation in other populations, could be incorporated into breeding programmes to improve meat quality.
Quantitative trait loci affecting growth and carcass composition of cattle segregating alternate forms of myostatin.
TLDR
Results are the initial effort to identify and characterize QTL affecting carcass and growth traits in families segregating myostatin, and suggest other loci influencing quantitative traits can be detected.
Association of the muscle hypertrophy locus with carcass traits in beef cattle.
TLDR
Individuals inheriting a single mh allele had a leaner, more heavily muscled carcass compared with those inheriting the alternative allele and mating schemes that maximize production of mh/+ genotypes provide a viable approach for improving carcass composition.
A comprehensive search for quantitative trait loci affecting growth and carcass composition of cattle segregating alternative forms of the myostatin gene.
TLDR
Evidence suggesting the presence of an interaction for 3-d Warner-Bratzler shear force between the myostatin gene and a QTL on chromosome 4 was detected and regions identified underlying QTL need to be assessed in other populations.
Detection of quantitative trait loci for growth and carcass composition in cattle.
TLDR
Evidence suggesting the presence of QTL was detected for several traits in a family from a Bos indicus x Bos taurus sire was detected was detected, suggesting regions underlying QTL need to be assessed in other populations.
A region on bovine chromosome 15 influences beef longissimus tenderness in steers.
TLDR
A genome scan was conducted using microsatellite DNA markers spanning 29 autosomal bovine chromosomes and Warner-Bratzler shear force collected at d 2 and 14 postmortem on steaks from the longissimus muscle to identify QTL for beef tenderness, and the QTL interacted significantly with slaughter group.
