- ... Our previous study detected a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP), g.1471620G>T, in the 5′ flanking region of the endothelial differentiation sphingolipid G-protein-coupled receptor 1 (EDG1) gene, which has been considered as a positional functional candidate for the gene responsible for marbling, and showed association of the g.1471620G>T SNP with marbling in Japanese Black beef cattle. In the p ...
