In this study, genetic variation of the fat mass and obesity-associated gene (FTO) was detected by PCRSSCP and DNA sequencing in 618 individuals from five Chinese indigenous cattle breeds, and their genetic effects on meat quality traits were evaluated. The results showed that a novel single nucleotide polymorphism C1071T was detected in exon 5 and the… CONTINUE READING
