Short summary
The aims of the study were to estimate allele and genotype frequencies at g.-274C > G locus in the promoter region of the SIRT1 gene and to investigate, for the first time, the relationship among different genotypes and milk and reproduction traits in the Agerolese cattle breed. The investigated population was found to be polymorphic at the investigated locus. Concerning milk production performance, significant differences between genotypes were found.
