Table 1 Genetic variants detected in the bovine PPARG and CEBPA genes. Variants were identified by re-sequencing a mixed sample panel (N = 43) composed of cattle breeds with different meat quality (Angus, Brahman, Creole, Hereford, Holstein, Limousin, Nellore, Shorthorn, Wagyu)

From: Genetic characterisation of PPARG, CEBPA and RXRA, and their influence on meat quality traits in cattle
