- ... Growth performance, as well as marbling, is the main breeding objective in Japanese Black (JB) cattle, the major beef breed in Japan. The septin 7 (CDC10) gene, involved in cellular proliferation, is located within a genomic region of a quantitative trait locus for growth‐related traits. In this study, we first showed that the expression levels of the CDC10 gene in the skeletal muscle were higher ...
