Table 6 Significant associations (P-value < 0.05) and tendencies towards association (P-value < 0.1) for the most abundant ANK1 gene promoter haplotypes with meat quality traits and least squares means for haplotype copy number

From: Regulatory polymorphisms in the bovine Ankyrin 1 gene promoter are associated with tenderness and intramuscular fat content
