Short summary
The impact of polymorphisms of the calpain 1 (CAPN1), calpastatin (CAST), leptin (LEP) and growth hormone receptor (GHR) on carcass characteristics and meat quality traits in 400 purebred Holstein bulls was examined using polymerase chain reaction and restriction fragment length polymorphism method. In the current study, the CAPN1, CAST and GHR genotypes confirmed significant associations with important traits in adequate numbers of animals.
