Short summary
This work identified SNPs in the growth- and development-related ATBF1 gene in cattle. Five novel SNPs were found in 644 cattle. The results found that SNP1, SNP2, and SNP3 and the combined genotypes SNP1–SNP3, SNP1–SNP4 and SNP2–SNP5 were significantly associated with growth traits in Qinchuan and Jinnan cattle. These findings indicate that the bovine ATBF1 gene has marked effects on growth traits, and the growth-trait-related loci can be used as DNA markers for MAS breeding programs in cattle.
