A novel SNP was discovered within the promoter region of alcohol dehydrogenase 1C (ADH1C c.-64T>C), the C allele eliminating a potential binding site for the transcription factor C/EPBα. The purpose of this study was to examine if an interaction between this SNP and vitamin A restriction had an effect on carcass characteristics in beef cattle. Following backgrounding on a β-carotene-deficient diet, 130 steers (50 TT, 50 CT, and 30 CC) were finished for 5 mo and received either no supplemental… CONTINUE READING
