Short summary
SMAD3 plays essential roles in myogenesis and osteogenesis and may relate to the regulation of body weight. In this study, a 17 bp indel in intron3 of the SMAD3 gene was detected in four Chinese cattle breeds (Qinchuan, Jiaxian, Nanyang and Caoyuan) by using DNA pool sequencing, and it was significantly associated with gene expression and growth traits of Qinchuan and Caoyuan cattle. This indel could be could be a promising marker for beef cattle breeding.
