  1. μimf/imf, μimf/IMF and μIMF/IMF = means of imf/imf, imf/IMF and IMF/IMF genotypes in g/100 g muscle, respectively, imf being the Duroc favourable allele; σe = residual standard deviation; σg = genetic standard deviation; Pimf/imf and Pimf/IMF = genotype frequencies of AA and AB, respectively; LR = likelihood ratio; P = level of significance.
