Short summary
The androgen receptor (AR) plays the vital role of a bridge on the function of the androgen and has sexual size dimorphism. For this reason, the objective of this study was to explore the novel indel variants within the cattle AR gene and to detect a novel 24 bp indel within the AR gene. It significantly affected growth traits, suggesting that this indel may be a useful DNA marker for the elimination or selection of excellent individuals for cattle breeding.
