Short summary
AGPAT6 is a key candidate gene in the lipid metabolism pathway. We detected two single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in bovine AGPAT6 exons, and we analyzed 33 traits associated with meat quality and the carcass of Chinese Simmental cattle. SNP1 was significantly associated with back fat thickness and fat coverage rate. SNP2 was significantly associated with fat coverage rate and marbling score. Thus, the SNPs of AGPAT6 may be genetic factors influencing carcass composition of beef cattle.
