New polymorphisms in the novel LYRM1 gene are associated with body measurement and meat quality traits in Qinchuan cattle.

Abstract

Body measurement and meat quality traits play important roles in the evaluation of productivity in cattle; they are influenced by genetic and environmental factors. Recent studies have shown that LYRM1 is a novel gene related to obesity and may influence fat deposition. We screened for new polymorphisms in the bovine LYRM1 gene and analyzed their… (More)
