Distribution of Marbling
No Comments Yet

Marbling characterized by the amount and distribution of intramuscular fat is one of the economically important traits of beef cattle. The Pancreatic lipase (Pnlip) gene, involved in the hydrolysis of dietary triglycerides to fatty acids has been previously shown to be regarded as possible candidate for the gene responsible for intramuscular fat content in the rat. It is located within the genomic region of a bovine marbling quantitative trait locus and thus was considered as a positional functional candidate for the marbling gene. In this study, researchers investigated the allele frequency distribution of the Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) in the PNLIP in high and low-marbled cattle.
