Table 5 Allele substitution effect (standard error in parenthesis) between the 8 SNPs and body fatness

From: Association of bovine leptin polymorphisms with energy output and energy storage traits in progeny tested Holstein-Friesian dairy cattle sires

  1. Significance of difference from zero = P < 0.10; * = P < 0.05; ** = P < 0.01
  2. Because of complete linkage disequilibrium between phases among the SNPs LEP-1457, LEP-1609 and LEP-580, only LEP-1457 was retained for the association analysis
